Treatment For Facial Swelling & Redness

Treatment for Sun Burns

The most common swimming pool affliction is a type of chemical dermatitis commonly referred to as Pool rash. Chlorine kills bacteria, yeasts and parasites and so it is added to swimming pools. Although this helps to prevent various infections, prolonged exposure to chlorine can cause a skin rash. If the level of chlorine in the water is higher than it should be or if your skin is bruised or broken, your chances of getting Pool rash are significantly higher. Very often it is the facial skin that shows the maximum effects of this rash as the skin on the face is a lot thinner and a lot more sensitive. You can apply a moisturizer that contains Aloe Vera gel as it is extremely soothing and will help to ease the swelling. It is unlikely that you have an infection, as you have not experienced any itching. However, I would advise you to use a broad spectrum anti-fungal and anti-bacterial cream.

In future, use an anti-bacterial soap to shower before and after your swim. Use a good rash guard that will prevent chlorine in the water from coming in contact with your skin. Do not use your every day sunscreen lotion when going swimming. Make sure that you use a sunscreen that has a high SPF and is water-proof.

When you spend some time in the sun, it very often affects your skin in a startling manner. But there is no cause to worry because you returned from swimming to find that your face is swollen. The swelling on your face will certainly go down. You can try splashing cold water on your face repeatedly. You can also dip a towel in a bowl of cold water and lay this over your face. Slices of cucumber are also effective in binging down the swelling. You can also use cucumber juice to treat your face. Using a cotton swab apply the cucumber juice all over your face. A chamomile tea bag is generally effective in brining down the puffiness. You can try using several tea bags and laying them all over your face. To make this remedy even more effective you can place wet chamomile tea bags in the fridge for some time before using them on the face.

For your dry face you can apply some Aloe Vera juice. Leave this on for some time. Vitamin E oil is also effective in make the skin soft and supple. Mix one tablespoon of milk cream with a pinch of turmeric and apply on your face.
