5 At-Home Sunburn Remedies


It’s that time of the year. 

You don’t have to be in Florida or California or somewhere near the equator to get sunburn. I’m living proof of that.

I went to a Yankee game a few weeks back and fried in the sun. In fact, I’m still peeling. I doused myself in plain old aloe, but there are several ways to relieve sunburn.

  • Noxzema and other menthol products help your burn. The menthol will cool the skin. And camphor in Noxzema is a minor pain reliever.
  • Yogurt and cooled-down oatmeal contain helpful anti-inflammatory agents. Turns out veggies aren’t just good for your nutrition, either.
  • Honey. Apply some to your sunburn. It encourages the growth of new skin cells and has lots of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties
  • Strawberries are plump and tasty, and like tea, they contain lots of tannic acid, which helps take the sting out of a sunburn. Mash up a few ripe ones and smear the pulp over your sunburn. Rinse off after a few minutes.
  • Shaving cream is packed with menthol and other chemicals that double as natural cooling agents. It evaporates quickly and will remove some of the heat that radiates from sunburn, so slather it on your red spots.
