FIX-IT: Un-burning Desire

Blisters and burns are ugly and the scars are terribly difficult to heal. So, here are a few tips on how to treat burns and scars, if you can’t avoid them.
I’ve just moved into my own place and I’ve been excitedly experimenting in the kitchen. It’s great to eat as much cheese as you want and pretend to ‘sauté’ vegetables in butter, but what it’s tough to avoid is burning yourself in all the food fervor.

Kitchen confidential

  • Always use oven mitts when taking things out of the oven or removing things from the stove. Protective mitten types are good for taking things out of the oven because they protect the back of your hands, too Never touch the stovetop with your bare hand. You may not know whether the burners are still hot.
  • Stand back from a hot pan when you remove the lid. You don’t want to get steam burns
  • Be very careful when draining hot pasta or pouring hot liquids like soup from a pot into a bowl. A splatter of boiling water, hot soup, or hot oil can burn you
  • Never mix hot liquids in a blender. They can explode out of the blender container, even with the lid on.
  • Stand back from hot grease and boiling liquids, including water. These liquids can spatter and burn you, so keep your distance and wear long sleeves.
  • Keep pot handles turned inward. If the handles point out over the edge of the stove, someone could bump them and send a pan full of hot food flying.

Zapping scars away:

  • Lemon‘n’Tomato”: Lemon and tomato juice both can help gently remove the dead skin and help the skin rejuvenate.  Lemon has acidic properties that naturally lighten the scars. Freshly squeezed tomato juice is a natural bleaching agent and naturally cures the burnmarks. Here’s how you can use them: Rinse the burn with cool (room temperature) water. You will need two clean washcloths, a fresh lemon and some fresh tomato juice. The burn mark should first be rinsed thoroughly under cold water. Now, place a moistened washcloth on the burn mark for a few hours. Meanwhile, keep some fresh lemon juice ready. Now, moisten the other washcloth with fresh lemon juice and dab the burn mark gently. After the area is dry, you should apply some fresh tomato juice on the burn mark. Due to its strong natural bleaching effect, you can get rid of the burn mark in just a few days. Repeat this procedure about twice a day on a regular basis to be rid of burn marks.
  • Almond oil: A good way to soothe burns is to gently massage the scar with almond oil. Massaging the scar twice a day will help to progressively reduce the scar.
  • Honey: Another good household item is honey, especially raw honey, which has wonderful antiseptic and healing properties. Researchers in India found that burns dressed with honey healed faster and with less pain and scarring was far less.
  • Potato peels: Another age old remedy is potato peels. Potato peels provide moisture and they also have anti-bacterial properties that help in healing. Doctors have found that potato peel bandages work better for minor burns than conventional dressings.
