• 8-29-2017 Get vitamin C crystals. You can use crushed pills, but they don't work as well as pure crystals. Mix with water and spray the burned area as often as you want to.
  • Home remedies for sunburn: • Add baking soda in cold water and take a bath. • Apply some Cool Aloevera gel to affected area directly. • Try Cold Compress. • Apply yogurt. • Apply honey. • Lemon juice, rose water, and cucumber pack. You have to take care of your skin. Apply a good sunscreen over SPF50 for preventing sunburn.
  • Ohhh I feel for you. I am as light skinned as can be and have sunburned terribly at times (when younger) although I am "wiser" now and avoid the sun or use block. Not much you can do. aloe, a cool bath and aspirin.
  • you'll probably have to wait it out
  • You still have a summer? Blast it. It's getting cold in UK, so bask in the glory of your sunburnt skin, for winter is edging forward.
  • Since this question is over 10 years old I imagine the situation has resolved itslef. My sunburns usually turn darker after a day or two then peel. But the key is to wear sunscreen and stay out of direct sunlight. Sunburns are dangerous and there is no such thing as a 'healthy tan'! Its a burn scar, and it causes premature wrinkling and can lead to cancer, as does smoking. After the fact, if you want to disguise it, you do what is done for all skin imperfections, cover it with a good foundation. A good foundation can cover a black eye, it can certainly cover a sunburn!
