Sunburn Remedies For Your Spring Break Travels

Even though it’s only day two of Spring Break, if you’re like me, you already have sun burn. And it hurts. A LOT.


But don’t fret. I have some remedies that may help.

1. Sun screen

I know it’s too late for the sunburn you already have, but make sure you apply some when you go out next time. Sun burn doesn’t prevent you from getting more sun burn.

2. Aloe

Aloe has soothing, moisturizing, and healing properties. It’s a natural remedy for sunburn. This plant is considered the “burn plant.”

3. Olive oil

You’ve probably heard at some point that olive oil solves some type of skin problem. Well it helps with sun burn too! Similar to blueberries and raspberries, the fruit is protected by its pigment. It shields from the oxidative damage of the sun.

4. Oatmeal

If you have super bad sun burn, sitting in a tub of cool water with tup cups of oatmeal will help. You could also make an oatmeal paste out of raw egg white and oatmeal.

5. Lotion

Your skin is lacking moisture while you have a sunburn. You need to replenish it. It’ll sooth the burn and make it less stingy. 


6. Drink water

You lost a lot of moisture to the sun today. Drink water! This will keep the skin lubricated. Hydrate or die-drate.
