GET A BOTTLE OF SEA BREEZE SKIN ANISEPTIC, You will find it at most any drug store in the isle with witch hazel, noxema etc. DO NOT get the generic stuff it just does not work as good on sun burns as the real deal. As soon as you realize you have had too much sun take a cool shower and while i am still standing in the tub I splash or pat sea breeze every where i have a sunburn and you'll be amazed at the relief. It takes the heat out. just be careful not to let any of it get on any of the more sensitive areas of body if you can help it. P.S. its a bad idea to RUB any thing onto burned skin especially if its blistered only pat stuff on or spray rubbing it breaks blisters etc. (causing your skin to peel for sure)

This will sound crazy, but trust me. To turn sunburn to tan, use mayonnaise. It smells horrible, but it works. Put it on skin at bedtime, and sleep on extra sheet that will need to be washed in the morning. You will be amazed! I have heard vinegar soothes sunburn, maybe that has something to do with mayo working. The oil in mayo keeps the burn from drying out too.
i relieze that everyone has already put dont take a hot shower... what my mom makes me do is get distilled vinegar pour it in like a bucket and go take a shower cold.. then as you start to feel the cold trun the water up. once you get to hot you will not feel a thing! plus while your takeing the shower pour/use wascloths to put the vinegar on you. it helps with the sting(:
Everyone says cold shower but a Hawaii native told me to take the hottest shower I can stand-it draws the heat out. Then rub skin with vinegar and aloe. Make sure to drink a large glass of milk, it kills the acid in your body that the sun caused. That's why you feel sick to your stomach after long periods in the sun.
Aloe, lotion, cold shower sill feel nice. Put aloe on a damp wash cloth and just lay it on the red area after rubbing up your spot with it. I haven't tried it but it doesn't sound like too bad of an idea. Can't hurt...

Redness or sunburn or Rosacea is a chronic skin condition, which manifests on the face and neck. It involves inflammation across the cheeks, nose, forehead, chin and other facial surfaces, leading to an angry red appearance. Rosacea can be a very embarrassing condition to live with, especially since so few skin care and makeup products can help with the redness and inflammation. Skin affected with rosacea is dry, sensitive and often prone to negative reactions to skin care products. Pai skin care products have been gaining worldwide acclaim for their ability to provide quality skin care for a number of conditions, including sensitive and allergy-prone skin, eczema and dermatitis. Pai have also attracted attention for their rosacea care products. Since Pai's products are created with natural compounds and are free of harmful ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, chemicals and alcohol, they are soothing and calming to the skin. While many are not geared specifically to rosacea sufferers, these products are still pure and natural enough to provide rosacea relief. http://skinsoft.best-skincare-review.com

Hi there, I am a physician and for those that answered putting anything other than lotion, don't believe them. The last thing you wanna do is have a blister that pops and the toothpasteor apple cider vinegar that you put on it infects syour skin. The key to controlling pain and inflammation is an NASID...nonsteroidal antiinflammatory. Such as motrin or Advil, aleve, naprosyn. Take this for 3 to 5 days. Cool, not cold shower. Wear loose clothing(may have to avoid strap bras) Regardless of what you do to it...it should go away in 5 days. Good luck
Answer this question...Take a cool shower and then COVER the area with Aloe Vera Gel. Or you can get an Aloe olant to grow in your house. This is great b/c it will always be nearby when you need it. When you do, just break off a stalk and squeeze the inside juice into your skin...works wonders esp for severe sunburn! Gel up!
