SUN-THINGS about summer can be really annoying.We’ve all returned home from a lovely day out and realised we’ve been sunburnt, bitten or are suffering from heat rash.
8 Before you start spending lots of cash on pharmacy remedies for sunburn, there are cheaper alternativesCredit: Getty – Contributor
But before you start spending lots of cash on pharmacy remedies, check out these wallet-friendly hacks. They can get you back to your summer lovin’ self in no time . . .
SUNBURN: Aftersun can be expensive, with Nivea’s Soothing Lotion costing £6. Instead, spread a thin layer of Lidl’s 68p Milbona natural yoghurt over your burn and leave for 10 minutes — it contains probiotics that will help to decrease redness and sensitivity. To stop stinging, dab on a flannel that has been soaked in cooled black tea.SAVE: £5.32HEAT RASH: Calamine lotion can be great, but a 200ml bottle is £1.25 at Superdrug and you’re unlikely to use it all in a hurry. If you’re only suffering mildly, try applying a damp cloth or ice pack (wrapped in a tea towel) for no more than 20 minutes. And take a cool bath or shower too.SAVE: £1.25THIGH CHAFING: Roll-on deodorant is a fantastic for this. Body Glide’s anti-chafe balm is £6.99 but Sainsbury’s Basics’ roll-on deodrant is just 50p. Or head to Amazon where you’ll find anti-chafing thigh bands from £1.99. Asda’s Little Angels Liquid Talc can also do the trick at a bargain 87p.SAVE: £6.49HAYFEVER: Piriteze is a pricey remedy, with Superdrug selling packs of 30 one-a-day tablets for £7.15. I recently heard about Nuage’s hayfever wipes, which are 99p for 30 at savers.co.uk. The brand claims these trap and remove pollen, so they are worth trying if you are sick of splashing out.SAVE: £6.16INSECT BITES: Munched by mozzies? As honey is anti-inflammatory, spreading a spoonful on the area can make itching less intense. Aldi’s 99p Everyday Essentials Honey is a steal compared to Savlon, £1.99 at Boots.SAVE: £1
