  • Sunburn Remedies

    Anyone here have any good homemade sunburn remedies?
    There's gotta be something other than just aloe vera.
    It just isn't doing the trick.
    I heard something that vinegar works.

    I feel like someone rubbed a very course piece of sandpaper all over my skin for about 2 hours.

    do you keep an aloe plant?

    a real plant....not a packaged product.

            me and my Dad burn really bad. Vinegar works better than aloe in my opinion. I can blister and I don't if I put vinegar on.

              So do you just dab it on with cloth or something?

                  Vinegar is very effective in taking the sting out. I'm not sure what else it does, but it has helped me in the past. On the other hand aloe has also helped, but I also heard the real stuff is better.

                  Keeping hydrated is very overlooked by some people also. Keep the fluids flowing.

                  Now for some preaching...don't let the sun get to you!!!!!!

                      Watch for all the crap that has alcohol in it.. itll dry you up for sure in a bad way :) The real deal aloe plants help! Im gonna try the vinegar, I buy so much of it, and use it for everything else.. lol..I swear, growing up I tanned like crazy. Now I get so darned sunburned... Ill blister really badly. I know my mom used to use Noxema on me as a kid.. have not used it in a while, but Im guessing, its not the best.. think it has a ton of crap in it... I know an old friend used to use old tea bags, let them soak and take the remains and rub them on her skin.. again, old wives tale? Im not sure.. good luck, and stay outta the sun!
                      If the zombies chase us, Im tripping you!!!

                        Oatmeal baths work also plain old tea bag tea will work. I have made a big pitcher of tea then you put it in the fridge and then dab it on or use a face cloth. The cold tea cools the skin and stops the burning and it hydrates the skin.

                          Since it's a home remedy for both "pulling" the yuck from a boil or drying up a weeping rash, believe that tea is astringent, suspect it wouldn't hydrate the skin. It does have a good reputation for helping the hurting skin in MINOR burns.

                            I too have had good results with vinegar. Using mud on your skin is a good way to prevent it in the first place.

                              I think the tea works because you are soaking a face cloth in it which is mostly water so it hydrates because you have to keep putting it on and then the tea helps with the burn not hurting and itching.
