Vinegar takes the sting out of sunburns.  Also lots of aloe gels and drink lots of water to rehydrate you’re body.

Vitamin C! No jokes. It boosts your immune system, & even though it’s not a virus, it can help your plasma & speed the healing too.

I’ve had friends mention they like to put sunscreen on after they burn, though I have never tested that myself for effectiveness etc.

My grandpa would tell you that fresh aloe is better than gel from the store, as he has countless times told me! I like to refrigerate the shoots after I cut them, cold aloe goo feels sooo good on angry burny skin!

Feel better!

I used to slather my sunburns with noxema.  It helps to cool and take the sting out of the burn.  Aloe helps a lot too.

Just moisture, moisture, moisture. My husband got really burned (luckily during the last 2 days) of our honeymoon and my goodness, I would put aloe on his back and it would soak in within 5 minutes. We just kept layering and layering and putting some intense moisturizing cream on it.

Lots of moisturizer!  I also used Jergens lotion with a tint to even stuff out.  It seemed to darken my pale spots and not make my tan spots any darker.

When I got desperate before the wedding to not have crazy looking shoulders I ran in my sports bra and tank top with the straps pulled off my shoulders.
