Weird Trick ERASES Sunburn Pain

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Summer is in full swing!

And I hope you’re hitting the beach, playing some golf or spending extra time in your garden.

But too much sun can also mean a nasty sunburn — along with the pain and peeling skin that can last for days.

Fortunately, scientists have just discovered a dead-simple way to send even the worst sunburn pain packing.

And you’ll never believe what it is.

Forget those expensive lotions, sprays and creams — the secret to beating sunburn pain may be large doses of vitamin D.

In fact, this super vitamin seems to heal sunburns from the inside out, making pain and redness disappear.

For the study, just published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, researchers gave 20 volunteers a sunburn on a small patch of skin on their arms.

Then those same folks were given between 50,000 and 200,000 IUs of vitamin D.

The mega-doses of vitamin D resulted in less redness, swelling and inflammation starting in as little as one day.

The higher the dose, the better the results — although researchers rightly point out that you don’t want to make taking huge doses of vitamin D (or any vitamin, supplement or medication) a regular thing.

Vitamin D seems to be so effective at treating sunburns because it works within your body to fight inflammation.

But it also increases the action of a gene called arginase-1, which helps tissues heal.

The next time you’re stuck with a sunburn, give a standard dose of vitamin D a try.

And while you’re waiting for it to work, remember that some fresh aloe can provide immediate relief.

Live well,
