Natural Sunburn Relief

Fortunately, there are lots of natural sunburn remedies you can find in your kitchen. Follow these tips to get relief-
Edible Coconut Oil:  This versatile oil is loaded with skin nourishing fatty acids that makes it a gentle moisturizer.
Cool milk: Mix a cup of milk with four cups of water and a few ice cubes. Dip a washcloth in the milk and apply it to your skin.

Yogurt: Apply plain yogurt directly to your sunburn, then rinse it off in a cool shower.

Cucumber: Blend cucumber to make a paste, and apply the paste to your skin.

Tea bags: For sunburned eyes, just steep and cool the tea bags, then place them on your eyelids.

Corn Starch and Water: Make a paste and spread it on your skin. Rinse it off with cool water.

Lettuce: Boil lettuce leaves in water, then take the leaves out and cool the liquid. Use the lettuce water on a washcloth for a cool compress.

Oatmeal: Wrap dry oatmeal in cheesecloth and run water over it into a bowl. Use a washcloth to soak up some water and apply the compress to your sunburn.

A Cool Bath: A cool bath can help draw out the heat and ease the pain and inflammation of sunburn. Skip the soap as that will only irritate your skin and make things worse. Instead, you may want to add either apple cider vinegar or baking soda (Don’t add too much, just a little will do). Both have natural properties that help combat sunburn pain which is due to lowered pH level of skin. Alternately, you also can try an oatmeal bath, which is especially helpful when the sunburn starts to itch.

Aloe Vera: It the standard over-the-counter sunburn remedies. The natural gel from an aloe plant contains both anti-inflammatory properties and nutrients that aid in skin growth and repair. You can either buy one from the drug store or pluck one from the plant directly and apply the gel to the sunburn areas.

Drink enough water: Last but not least. Sunburn draws fluid to the skin surface and away from the rest of the body. It's important to replenish those fluids as quickly as possible.
