SunburnThe best sunburn treatment is to avoid getting a sunburn in the first place. Sunburns can not only burn the skin but they may cause premature aging and contribute to skin cancer. Some sun exposure is healthy because it helps the body produce vitamin D. If you stay in the sun long enough to tan, you are causing skin damage.

Exposure to the sun long enough to have your skin turn slightly red and be painful means you more than likely have a first degree burn and the first layer of skin is probably all that is damaged.

When you have a sunburn that causes blisters and swelling of the affected area, you have a second degree burn with multiple layers of skin that has been damaged and possible nerve end damage. Second degree burns whether caused by the sun or other sources are quite painful and can take awhile to heal.

Medications you may be taking and your skin type will help determine how quickly you may sunburn or have other problems from sun exposure.

Vinegar and hydrating your skin as quickly as you may help relieve the pain from sunburns. Sunburn treatments do help relieve the pain you feel but sunscreen, wide brim hats and protective clothing should be worn to prevent skin damage in the first place. Drink plenty of water and eating the right diet also helps protect your skin from burning as quickly. The ideal situation is to protect yourself and your loved ones so you never need a sunburn treatment.

Head lice are sometimes called hair lice because they often grab on to hair when you try to wash them out and they attach their eggs to the hair with a glue that makes them very hard to remove. Many of the commercial shampoos and treatments fail to work well for many because they don’t do a good job of removing the eggs which means the treatment must be repeated about every 10 days until all of the eggs have hatched. Repeat the treatment too soon and you miss the hatched lice and repeated the treatment too late and the hatched lice have had time to lay new eggs before they are killed by your treatment.

This remedy is a two step process that works to kill the living lice and dissolve the glue holding the eggs to the hair so you can completely eliminate hair lice.

Mix a 1/2 cup of olive oil with 2 or 3 tablespoons tea tree oil. Apply to your hair and rub into the scalp. Leave it on your hair for 30 minutes to an hour. Wash your hair to remove the oil. Rinse your hair with vinegar (the vinegar loosens the “glue” holding the eggs and nits on your hair). Wait 5 to 10 minutes and rinse your hair with hot water. Repeat the vinegar rinse. Always comb your hair out with a metal lice comb to remove any remaining nits. (The plastic lice combs break too easily, especially if you have thick hair.)

Don’t forget to wash all bed linens, towels and clothes in hot water to kill the lice that may be on them. Vacuum mattresses and furniture to remove as many lice from those items as possible and then spray Lysol® on them plus any personal care items the infected person used.

To prevent the return of hair lice, place 4 drops of tea tree oil in your daily shampoo and then wash your hair as usual.

Not all remedies work for all people so I invite you to check out some of the other remedies for lice removal elsewhere on the Natural Remedies Products website. I strongly recommend you also check out Head Lice Be Gone – A Proven System where a mother of 3 girls talks about a system she uses to naturally get rid of head lice from her girls.
