Cold water doesn't exactly get rid of a sunburn, but it helps a lot in reducing the pain on the affected area. The cold water is more efficient when it is mixed with one pound of baking soda or oatmeal. The cold water also helps reduce the swelling.

I had a sunburn on my face a couple weeks ago this worked fast for me first day (or even the second if you really want I guess) apply 100% aloe Vera generously. On the second day apply eurcerin body creame lotion. It comes in a tub lol. Don't get the facial moisturizer try the Eurcerin original cream in the jar/tub first. Hydrates and heals skin wonderfully. it will also prevent minimum pealing my skin was peeling horribly and the creame really helped

Yep... White vinegar... let it dry, then shower normal. Helps you retain color, and helps take some of the sting out too.

1. Aloe Vera
In pharmacies or other drug stores, you can find aloe vera gel to relieve pain from sunburn due to the antioxidant content and anti-inflammation.

Even if you can get fresh gel from the plant, the efficacy is much better than the products sold over the counter,

While these drugs can alleviate, most scientific evidence does not show that aloe vera can speed healing sunburn, says Dr. Jonette Keri, MD, professor of dermatology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

"But it feels good and makes skin feel cool," added Keri.

2. Shave Cream
Although that sounds weird, but shaving cream often appeared as a reliever sunburn which can be found in the house (although technically, this cream does not contain natural ingredients).

3. Vitamin E and C
Some natural health website recommends applying vitamin E oil on exposed skin sunburn so that pain is gone and help moisturize the skin.

Many scientists agree that vitamin E and C are able to work as a means of preventing the occurrence of burns caused by sunburn, experts said. That's because both vitamins act as antioxidants to heal burns affecting oxidative damage to skin cells.
