How to treat a sunburn

We have all done it. We go without sunscreen, or forget to reapply it after swimming, or got burned on a cloudy day when you would least expect it. So you are now the owner of a sunburn rather than a tan, but what should you do to treat it?

First, take aspirin every four hours to help lessen the inflamation.

To cool the skin, you can apply an aloe or menthol lotion.

New on the market are lidocaine-containing gels. It is a topical anesthetic, which can help ease the pain of a sunburn. Always patch test this gel first on an unaffected area, to be sure you do not have a skin reaction. A skin allergy to this gel, on top of the sunburn itself, is no fun.

You can also try our Homemade Sunburn Remedy if you do not have any lotion at home to use, since this remedy uses all ingredients normally found in your home.
