14 Hacks For Treating A Terrible Sunburn
14 Hacks For Treating And Curing A Terrible Summer Sunburn.

Let’s face it; you’re probably going to get a sunburn this summer. Hell, it’s the 4th of July. There’s a good chance you’re getting a sunburn right now. If you do, don’t worry. Here are 14 clever hacks that will help treat and cure your sunburn quickly.

1. Aloe Vera Ice Cubes

That looks so soothing. Also fun. I’m not a toddler, but I want to do it anyway.

2. DIY Epsom Salt Spray

Epsom salt is the sort of thing everyone’s grandma had around the house, but none of us know what it is for. Apparently, among other things, it’s an effective sunburn cure. Who knew?

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

Of course, apple cider vinegar cures sunburns. It does everything else. And if apple cider vinegar is around, coconut oil cannot be far behind.

4. Coconut Oil and Lavender

Here’s some coconut oil! Combined with soothing lavender, it appears to have taken this sunburn from lobster to perfect tan. God, that “before” photo looks painful. I hope she didn’t get that on purpose just to illustrate this tutorial. Ouch.

5. Over-the-Counter Relief

If you don’t want to mess with all-natural, DIY solutions, you can just buy this stuff. It contains Lidocaine, and you rub it right into your skin. Suck it, aloe.

6. Noxzema

Minty, cooling Noxzema is a popular choice for treating sunburns. That company should really be advertising this benefit during this time of year.

7. Preventive Treatment

Huh. That’s good to try.

8. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a good, all-purpose skin soother. To avoid clogging your bathtub with it, make a little bag out of cheesecloth or the foot of some pantyhose or something and tie the oatmeal in there.

9. Earl Grey Tea

This makes a very pretty picture, but you could also just soak a towel in the strong tea and apply it to the sunburn. (Use an old or very dark towel because tea dyes fabric forever.)

10. Apple Cider Vinegar and Coconut Oil

If you mix ACV and coconut oil together, I’m pretty sure you could win a nuclear war. At the very least, you can heal a sunburn.

11. After-Sun Spray

This cooling spray includes lavender and peppermint essential oils and aloe vera gel. It sounds delightful, and you’ll smell awesome.

12. Oatmeal Bath

Ha! This is another excellent way to get an oatmeal bath without clogging your drain with disgusting oatmeal.

13. Banana Mash Mask

This will soothe your skin after you’ve done something terrible to it. Also, everyone will want to eat your face.

14. Baking Soda

Baking soda even helps cure sunburns. If you don’t have any other DIY ingredients in the house, you probably at least have a box of baking soda at the back of the fridge.
