Natural burn relief for hands

Your kitchen can be a hot and dangerous place – we have all been there, a burnt finger, hand or arm on the stove, the oven and the microwave...

What degree is my burn?


FIRST DEGREE


The outer layer of the skin (epidermis) is affected. Your skin gets red and is painful to touch.

Sun burns and most household burns are first degree burns.

 


SECOND DEGREE


Both the outer layer (epidermis) and the underlying layer (dermis) is affected. Blood vessels are damaged and blistering appears. These burns are often very painful and if the affected area is small and not infected, most can be treated at home.

If a larger area is involved always seek medical attention.

 


THIRD DEGREE


Both the outer layer (epidermis) and the underlying layer (dermis) is damaged, the burn is deep and leaves a path of destruction.

These burns are serious and require immediate medical attention.

 

4 natural burn care tips

  • Step 1 - Water, water, water

Immediately run cool water (not ice cold) over the area for 10 minutes.
(Placing ice on a burn isn’t a good idea as it can damage to the skin tissues).

  • Step 2 - Raw Potato or Aloe Vera

Potato - rub raw potato slices or grated raw potatoes on the area affected. A burn will pull moisture from the skin will welcome the cooling, soothing and hydrating effect of raw potato.

Aloe Vera - apply a small piece of fresh Aloe Vera gel onto the burn. Aloe Vera has tissue-healing and painkilling properties.

  • Step 3 - Vinegar

Vinegar - mix vinegar with equal parts of water. Cover the area with a clean cloth soaked in the vinegar mixture, repeat several times over the next few hours. Vinegar has antiseptic and astringent properties and helps prevent infections.

  • Step 4 - Antibacterial Hand Wash and Hand Cream

Keep the affected area clean with our Manuka & Lemon Tea Tree Antibacterial Hand Wash and nourish your hands several times a day with Manuka & Lemon Tea Tree Hand Cream. Both contain soothing Aloe Vera to support your skin's recovery.
