Bag Balm in the Summer: Sunburn Relief to Help Heal the Burn

Bag Balm in the Summer: Sunburn Relief to Help Heal the Burn

Maybe you didn’t know how long you would be outside, or perhaps you didn’t dress appropriately. Either way, you forgot to apply enough sunscreen or didn’t apply any at all, and now you are red. Very red. Bag Balm is your best option to soothe that sunburn.

Once you burn, your skin reacts to the damage by swelling. It may become hot to the touch and can be painful if the burn is intense enough. Put on a cold compress and take an anti-inflammatory to bring the swelling down.

Depending on how bad the burn is and your skin’s sensitivity, you may develop peeling skin, or blistering with fluid. Peeling skin is a continual process that is always happening; however, after a sunburn, cell regeneration accelerates and causes the skin to peel rapidly. Some consider this the most frustrating part of a sunburn. In this stage, you will peel. A lot!

Enter Bag Balm! Lanolin, one of our time tested ingredients, works by creating a barrier on the surface of the skin. It will hinder the evaporation of water in the skin and maintain proper levels of natural oils. Use Bag Balm to prevent the peeling of the skin and help to heal the burn.   

Pro Tip: If you think you got too much sun… apply Bag Balm… the intense moisturizer can help prevent intense peeling.
