Help! Here Comes the Sunburn Relief

Yes, we're old enough to know better but sometimes things just happen. If you or your little ones are feeling a bit toasty here are some tried and true remedies to cool and cure.

  1. Take an anti-inflammatory medication like aspirin or ibuprofen.

  2. Cucumbers have natural antioxidant and analgesic properties. Chill cucumbers, then mash in a blender to create a paste, and apply to affected sunburned areas including the face.

  3. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, and can help decrease inflammation caused by sunburn. Use on the skin post exposure and it can also can be rubbed onto peeling skin.

  4. Scrape aloe gel from inside the aloe vera plant and apply to affected area. Test a small patch as some people tend to experience aloe vera allergies.

  5. Take a cool milk infused or oatmeal bath.
