Home Remedies for Sunburn
A sunburn, according to Wikipedia, is a burn to living tissue such as skin produced by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, commonly from the sun's rays. This condition can affect any part of the body like your scalp, earlobes, lips, and even your eyes, which can become painful and gritty. Generally, a sunburn emerges a couple of hours after being exposed to the sun. Looking for home remedies to relieve the pain of sunburn, as well as speed up the healing of your skin? Maybe you can consider the following suggestions:

Aloe Vera: For soothing relief, apply the gel from the leaves of the aloe vera plant to sunburn when needed.

Damp Towel: Dampen a towel with cool tap water and apply to sunburned skin.

Baby Wipes: Baby wipes sure come in handy when you're fighting sunburn. Pat affected areas for a temporary cooling effect.

Mayonnaise: Treat dry, sunburned skin by applying mayonnaise to affected body parts. Not only will you enjoy pain relief, but also moisturized skin.

Drink Water: Drinking plenty of fluids can help prevent dehydrated skin.

Yogurt: Treat mild sunburn with cold, plain yogurt.

Vegetables: Try applying thinly sliced pieces of raw cucumber, potato, or apple. The coolness helps soothe and lessen inflammation of the skin.

I know this sounds completely crazy but vapor rub is not just for colds anymore!! It is the greatest relief for sunburn I know of. I work with teenage girls, who are absolutely impossible when they get burned!! We use the vapor rub on their burnt skin and it takes out the itching, burning and stiffness.

Try it.... what have you got to loose?
