How to Treat a Sunburn

If you spent too much time out in the sun this summer without the proper amount of sunblock, there are a couple remedies you can do at home to make it heal faster and feel better more quickly.

As soon as possible you should take an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen or aspirin. It will help the pain PLUS stop inflammation.

After you can do one of the following:

1) Cover affected areas with aloe. Aloe that has been refrigerated can feel even better.

2) Soak in a cool bath or take a cool shower.

3) Apply a cool compress to the affected area. Add milk to ice water and then soak a clean cloth in it. The fat, protein and pH of milk have a soothing anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
