    There is nothing better that spending a day on the beach. Of course if you stay there for too long, you will not look like a delicious chocolate, but burnt roast chicken instead. How to treat your sunburns? You don’t really need to overspend on expensive sunburn lotions. A jar of mayonnaise will absolutely be enough! Mayo relieves the pain and moisturises skin. Apply it on your skin and wait until it soaks in. next gently wash it away. If you don’t want to use mayonnaise, take aloe-based gel or a shaving foam – they will also bring some relief for your sunburnt skin.

    Hair conditioner could be a great alternative to shaving cream. A lot of women believe that shaving with hair conditioner is even more precise and the skin is less irritated but better moisturised. If you want to take a break from shaving creams and gels, simply grab your hair conditioner!
