Natural Sunburn Remedies

When it comes to sunburn, prevention really is your best. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having been out in the sun a bit too long, it’s time to go inside and see what you can do to ease the pain. The following are natural remedies that can be very helpful in easing the pain and/or aiding the healing process of sunburns: 

Take a bath. Soaking in a tub of warm water will actually help a great deal. Avoid using any soap as they can irritate the burn. Carefully pat burns dry, do not rub them with a towel. You can also add vinegar or baking soda to the bath. 

Apply soothing salves. Aloe gel straight from the plant is a very popular choice. Milk of Magnesia also makes a nice lotion to protect the skin and soothe burns. Alternately, you can make a paste of baking soda and water to apply to skin as often as needed.

Avoid sun exposure as much as possible while sunburned. If a layer of clothing between you and the sun isn’t possible, apply sunscreen generously and often.
