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."

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. Fiance 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.
