It goes without saying that the excruciating pain that comes with a sunburn isn’t worth the hours spent in the sun trying to “get some color.” Oh well, what’s done is done. I know firsthand how nasty and unpleasant sunburn (especially the first one of the season, yikes) can be, which is why I devised the perfect sunburn soother when you need to ease your suffering ASAP. It’s simple, cooling, and will relieve your sunburn right away. Here’s what you need:
– Plain Greek Yogurt
– Aloe Vera
That plain Greek yogurt you’ve been chilling in the fridge for work on Monday? You’ll need to buy another one, because you’re going to use it to cure your sunburn. Yogurt that has live cultures work wonders on a sunburn because of the probiotics that help to heal our skin… and the fact that it is super cold from the fridge will definitely feel good, too. That might be all you need, but take it a step further and add a scoop of aloe vera and mix it in with the yogurt. Apply as much as you need, and after you’ve let it sit, gently rinse off with cool water. All those hot spots on your skin will feel cool in no time.
