  • Aloe Vera Gel. Get some and keep it in the fridge. It not only relieves sunburn pain, but it feels good as well!!

  • Aloe Vera is great, but Vanilla extract also works wonders and helps keep it from peeling and smells great.. As for just lotions st. ivs is great.

  • For sunburn I use milk, skim is best but you pat it on, the protein in it helps your skin to heal and the coldness relieves the pain, doing it the first day, by day two its gone.. It works great for kids when you forget to put on sunscreen or reapply it, it drys to a film that helps protect also and no chemicals to get in there or your eyes.

  • Aloe vera or solar caine. I also have used a washcloth soaked in vinegar and patted gently on the sunburn. It will take the heat right out of the sunburn.
