The warmth of the sun is a wonderful sensation, but it can also be harmful if we do not protect our skin properly. Sunburn is a common skin issue that many people face, and it can be a painful and unpleasant experience. While the best way to avoid sunburn is to use a good quality sunscreen, it is also possible to soothe and heal sunburn with natural ingredients such as those found in handmade body butter. In this article, we will discuss the natural ingredients that can help and prevent sunburn, and how to use them in handmade body butter.
What Causes Sunburn?
Sunburn is caused by overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UV rays, UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin, while UVB rays cause more immediate damage. When the skin is exposed to too much UV radiation, the skin cells become damaged, leading to redness, pain, and eventually peeling.

Sunburn can be a painful and uncomfortable experience, but it's also preventable with proper sun protection and care. While using sunscreen is essential, it's not always enough, especially if you're spending long hours in the sun. That's where natural skincare products can come in handy. Nina's Pure Joy offers a range of natural skincare products that can help prevent and alleviate sunburns.
Nina's Pure Joy natural soap and natural body butter are made from natural ingredients, which can be gentle and nourishing for the skin. Our products do not contain any harmful chemicals, parabens, or synthetic fragrances that can be irritating and damaging to the skin. Our natural soap is a perfect alternative to conventional soap bars that can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and increased vulnerability to sunburn.
Our natural body butter is rich in nourishing ingredients, such as shea butter, coconut oil, and cocoa butter, which can help soothe and moisturize sunburnt skin. Our natural lip butter is also a great addition to your sun protection routine, as it can help protect your lips from sun damage while keeping them soft and moisturized.
One of the key ingredients in our natural skincare products is shea butter. Shea butter is an excellent source of vitamins A and E, which can help protect the skin from sun damage and free radicals. It also contains cinnamic acid, which provides a small amount of sun protection.
Another ingredient that is known for its sun protection properties is coconut oil. Coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids that can help protect the skin from harmful UV rays. It also has a high vitamin E content, which is essential for maintaining healthy and protected skin.
In addition to our natural skincare products, it's also important to take other sun protection measures, such as wearing protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses, and avoiding the sun during peak hours. If you do get sunburnt, it's essential to take immediate action to prevent further damage and soothe your skin.
Applying our natural body butter after sun exposure can help soothe and moisturize your skin, reducing discomfort and promoting healing. We also recommend drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated and help your skin heal faster.
In conclusion, using natural skincare products from Nina's Pure Joy can be an excellent way to prevent and help sunburns. Our natural soap, body butter, and lip butter are made from nourishing ingredients that can help protect and moisturize your skin. While these products cannot replace sunscreen, they can be a great addition to your sun protection routine, especially if you have sensitive skin or are prone to sunburns.

Love Always, Nina...
I appreciate that you mention the prevention side as well. Even in the spring you can get a bad sunburn, as my family learned the hard way. Aloe Vera was great, but you can’t leave it on forever.
I knew about aloe Vera, but not the prevention piece. That’s great! My children and I live at the pool on the weekends, so prevention would be very helpful. I’ve never bought any sort of seed oil except grapefruit, so I’ll have to try these.
