The 5 Best At-Home Remedies To Treat Sunburn

June 16, 2016 by Keren Leshem

After growing up with my mom constantly nagging me, “did you put on sunscreen?!” it’s hard to believe that I still manage to get burnt during the summer. No matter how hard we try, sometimes the sun is just too strong, and we can’t avoid getting a little too much color.

We can all agree that we’d prefer sun-kissed skin rather than looking like a lobster. Here are some ways to soothe a sunburn with things you might already have at home OR can buy at the drugstore!

Body Lotion. Find your favorite body lotion and lather up! If your lotion happens to have aloe vera in it, even better–the infusion of aloe will ease any stinging, and is also very helpful for peeling skin.

Take a Bath. Adding certain elements to your bath can help soothe and eliminate the discomfort of your sunburn. Try adding apple cider vinegar to even out the pH balance of your skin, baking soda to eliminate irritation and redness, or some essential oils to relieve general pain. Hop in, and relax!

Drink Water. When you’re sunburnt, your skin is dry and dehydrated, so you need to replenish your body’s water supply! Load up on water, juice or your favorite sports drink to rehydrate.

Tea Bags. Apply freshly brewed tea to your sunburnt areas using a wash cloth. Black tea reportedly draws heat from sunburnt skin and also helps restore your skin’s pH balance. Add some mint to your mixture for a cooling effect, and you’ve got yourself a soothing at-home fix.

Cucumbers. Try using one of our favorite veggies for your sunburn. Mash up some cucumbers in a blender to make a paste, and apply to your burnt areas–including your face! Relax with a nice cucumber mask, and let your sunburn heal.
