Just wanted to share a sunburn remedy I discovered searching online, and it worked for me!
Take white vinegar, wet a towel or paper towel, and apply directly to affected area. I let the paper towel drape over the sunburned area. The sooner you catch it the better, as it will draw the heat out of the sunburn and reduce the redness.
I hope this helps someone!

For some reason, that sounds to me like it’d sting!
I try to avoid sunburns at all costs (duh), but love just basic lotion and cool washcloths if I need "treatment."

It didn’t sting at all, just was smelly! It actually cooled it down a lot!!!

Oh good to know! A little too late for me to use because I got sunburned this weekend. I’ve been putting on aloe whenever I can and the itch is starting to go away. I’m still red though

I just suffered from a HORRIBLE sunburn, and in addition to aloe, we used a mixture of baking soda and water to help draw the heat out…definitely helped!

Aloe is excellent for any type of burn, including sunburns.

My fiance got sunburned while we were in Hawaii and I used 100% unrefined shea butter on his burns and it worked quite well for him.

Thanks for the tip. I wish I would have come across this thread about 3 days ago though. FI and I got sunburned at the river and he was miserable Sunday. I’ve been putting aloe so it is better now. I’ll keep it in mind though.

Thanks for the tip! I get sunburned pretty much AS SOON AS I walk outside! I love being Irish, but that is a definitely disadvantage. Thanks for the post! 🙂

Good tip! I’ve never tried vinegar, but I have tried Miss Stilleto’s tip with the baking soda (mixed baking soda and water until it made kind of a paste) after a particularly bad sunburn on college spring break. That seemed to work pretty well.
