11 Home Remedies for Sunburn

During summer, everyone wants to be soaked up on the sun, while having the best times of their lives. But with those long, fun hours spent outdoors when summer finally arrives, there is always one inevitable concern — sunburn.

Fortunately, there is an excellent slew of household items you can take advantage of for providing relief from itching, burning and peeling as a result of long-term exposure to the sun.

Here is a comprehensive list of how to make use of your household items to help soothe and heal your skin.

Oatmeal and Baking Soda

Put a few baking soda tablespoons into your bathtub filled with cold water. Next, soak yourself into the bath solution for 15 — 20 minutes to help lessen the damages done by the sun. Also, including a cup of oats to a cooled water-filled bathtub can help assuage skin irritation and improve your skin ability to retain more natural moisture for satiny skin.

Whatever you do, do not rub the skin, either after you are out or in the bathtub. Just dab your skin dry with the aid of a towel — don’t scrub. [1]
