As it has been said many times, aloe vera is a fine aid. But a few things most do not consider are also nutrition and colloidal silver. In extreme situations, they use a colloidal silver creme for burn victims. Colloidal silver kills and prevents micro-organism growth (think bacteria and virus) and accelerates healing and tissue growth. I could practically write a book on nutrition, that is kind of an open ended topic. Some say vitamin E is excellent for the skin, you may look into whole foods that contain it.
I suggest rubbing lotion on your sunburn because it will definitely help you relax. You will have to wait for it it heal, eventually, though. I hate getting sunburns; they are really uncomfortable :( Hope I helped, and good luck :)
Aloe Vera Gel is good. There are also Aloe Vera Gel products mixed with ingredients that help numb the skin. I can't remember the name of the product I used but the gel was blue. Look in the store where they sell the sunblock lotions.

I use ORGANIC Apple Cider Vinegar...helps TAKE THE STING OUT . But make sure it` s ORGANIC..( you can tell cause it`s cloudy in appearance. ) Cold shower first, then Vinegar and leave it on, helps heal the skin and balance the PH Sleeping in moist sheets is more comfortable. Aloe and colloidal silver help the skin heal, too...so does vitamin E especially in combonation with aloe...helps reduce scarring too.
Like every one else has said Aloe Vera, probably the best way. I have been told though on many occasions, a hot shower will take the sting out, and vinegar.. Its a bit smelly, but it works. Also cold tea! It soothes sunburn, and its not smelly like vinegar lol good luck
Something that ALWAYS helps me is putting Aloe Vera on the sunburn. Then dab it dry with a damp hot cloth and massage non-scented, oil free moisturizer into the sunburnt area. If you do this the night you get the sunburn, it should be gone the next day! ENJOY!
