First Aid Kit: How to Treat Burns, Scars, Wounds, etc. from Skin Care Products and Ch - Page 2

The saran wrap helps superfiical burns you may get from retin-a, mild skin peels, but wont help the second and third degree burns. After you apply the ointments to superifical burns that most people get from skincare products and mild peels, the wrap entraps heat and helps the healing ingredients in the ointment penetrate better and calling antibodies, red blood cells, and nutrients to help speed the healing.

Oh, thanks for bumping this because I have been meaning to add SHARK LIVER OIL, to the list of healing and treating products. Shark Liver Oil contains high concentrations of Vitamin A, D, E, and other essential nutrients plus the Omegas to heal superfical AND deep burns quickly, in a matter of just a few days. Shark Liver Oil was traditionally used in Preparation H, which many burn victims used to cut their healing time by 3 days, however, the company stopped using Shark Liver Oil in Preparation H, so you can therefore purchase the pure Shark Liver Oil at the drugstore/pharmacy; its usually sold in a small vial by the essential oils and other natural extracts. If there is one item out of the whole list that you should have, it is the Shark Liver Oil for treating burns, scars, and fresh raw skin; first disinfect the area with a Saline wound wash and apply the oil with a cotton ball pad or Qtips and let it heal.

My mother and father are both from the caribbean, so my diet was a little "unorthodox" lol...this was something me and my brother had to drink when we were younger. I would much rather apply it topically

1. Neosporin (you need this sometimes post peel when skin is really raw, red and itchy, also helps prevent post inflammatory hyperpigmentation if applied on bumps/occasional pimples, and prevents skin infections after strong peels).
2. Zinc Oxide Ointment (you need to apply this to the areas that might have been burned or overexfoliated after a peel or too much use of Retin-A, zinc oxide rebuilds collagen and heals the skin quickly).
3. Hydrocortisone Cream (when some areas of the skin feels itchy and irritated from RA, AHA/BHA/TCA or rough exfoliation.
4. Multivitamin (yes I know its awkward to have this in your aid kit, but when your skin gets too irritated and "flesly" looking, taking a multivitamin or maybe two helps the body work faster in restoring the skin to its natural balance.
5. Vitamin E Oil (helps the skin rebuild).
6. Aloe Vera Gel (helps soothe and calm the skin from all irritations/burns or any other ailments).
7. Visine Regular Eye Drops (takes the Redness out not just from your eyes, if you have some red spots or even a pimple, just put this on the spot or area and it sucks the redness right out for about 5 to 6 hours, the active ingredients in this - tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride and potassium chloride - constricts the blood vessels in your spot and effectively takes the redness out).
8. Iburprofen (anti-inflammatory - when your skin is really inflamed and broken out in rashes or you have a bad reaction to any product, taking an iburprofen capsule orally or cutting it open and applying the gel topically helps to bring down the inflammation greatly).

There should be more, but these are the CORE essentials. If you guys have other suggestions add them in your posts.

Thanks LightenNLift I could it use this info. last Friday when I burn my face when used the facial hair cream removal. I will write them down and go to the pharmacy to find this products.

Five stars for this useful post, you

Yes, this will work. Any zinc oxide cream, the higher the % the better. Those used for diaper rash are a little harder to spread, but do work well for healing.

the zinc can't hurt it. It will help sooth it and heal it quicker.

You can also use neosporin. It will also help heal your burn. It is what I use after applying TCA peels.
