Alright, be honest. We know that you totally hit the beach or the pool this Fouth of July in hopes of getting super tan. Many of you probably didn’t even bother to put any SPF on, because you we’re too focused on tanning, partying, and chowing down on hot dogs and hamburgers. Are we right? You can admit it, we’re guilty too. So, now that you’re painfully burnt and lookin’ like a lobster, what’s a girl to do?

While we would never recommend getting sunburnt, since it is so dangerous, sometimes it’s just hard to avoid. It can happen to anyone, even if you are being super careful. It’s hot out there for heaven’s sake, so there is no need to be ashamed if you forgot your sunscreen…this time. Everyone makes mistakes.

But since you might be a little embarrassed if you’re currently squirmming around at your desk because you’re in so much pain, or you’re constantly scratching your back because you’re already shedding a new skin, we put together some hacks. Our sunburn secrets will relieve your pain and help with your nasty peeling issues. If you’re sunburnt, we suggest you check out the hacks in our slideshow. You (and everyone around you) will be glad you did.

Oh, and since lookin’ like a tomato is NOT cute, please put on some sunscreen next time. Your skin will thank you.
