  • TEA!!! use tea bags (regular tea bags for steeping) soak them in cold water and let the tea soak in your skin or if you really bad...make a tea bath.. put a box of tea bags in warm water in a full bath...let it fully steep and soak for an hour.... takes the sting out (not the redness..sorry) I was blistered by sunburn and that helped SOOO much

  • for a real bad burn use mustard...i'm not kidding cools it last longer then just the aloe cooling gel....apply every time it dried or starting to dry...its a messy thing but i was in such desperate need one time myself and i googled it up all kinds of remedies and this is what helped me. It will not burn or just cools it and it will stop the burn while on.... you have to do that till the worse of the sunburn is over.....lie on something that you don't mind staining or so. apply a nice thick layer. good luck !!!
