what's the best thing for sunburn?

I know aloe vera is top, but I'm allergic. I put sunscreen on, but still got burnt (not painful).

  • When I've been sunburned badly, I take a milk bath - whole milk only! Something in the fat takes the sting out and helps to sooth and moisturize.

  • I take a bath with bath oils and it helps. And I've tried noxema; that felt better too.

  • Sorry about the aloe. I have heard that vinegar helps, but I have never tried it. Drinking lots of water helps.
