Some home remedies to protect your skin and hair from sun damage include:
  • Aloe vera gel: This natural remedy is known for its soothing and moisturizing properties.
  • Coconut oil: The fatty acids in coconut oil provide a natural SPF of around 8.
  • Papaya and orange juice: Mix 2 tablespoons of mashed papaya with 1 teaspoon of fresh orange juice and apply to your skin for 15 minutes.
  • Vitamin E: A diet rich in vitamin E, or taking a vitamin E supplement, can protect your skin from sun damage.
  • Hair sunscreen: Hair sunscreens help maintain the color and hydration of your hair.
  • Hydration: Keep your hair as moisturized as possible because sun exposure dries out your hair.
