Soothe A Sunburn
By Steffanie Attenberg, Vice President, Group Publisher |
About 2 years ago, my fair-skinned husband and I were on vacation at the Ventana Inn and Spa in Big Sur, California. It wasn't very sunny out, so we sat on the beach playing backgammon for about 2 hours. Since it overcast, he wasn't wearing a shirt and he didn't think to reapply sunscreen. When we got back to our room, he started to turn red-VERY RED-and I actually noticed him starting to blister. It was pretty gross! Thank goodness they had a spa- We went in and asked if they had any suggestions. She gave us Jurlique Calendula Cream and told us to apply it liberally until the swelling and pain went away.
I thought we were going to have to go to the emergency room, it was that bad. He was so uncomfortable he couldn't even lie down. We applied and re-applied the Calendula Cream- The results were amazing! The redness went away in less than 2 days, and the blisters were noticeably smaller in about the same amount of time. We now use this product regularly. I never burn, but I still use it after I have been exposed to the sun. It smells very clean, absorbs well into the skin and is very soothing.
If you or anyone you love has ever had a sunburn, you should buy this product!
