A sunburn is more than just uncomfortable – a bad sunburn ups your chances of getting skin cancer, and treating burned skin within the first eight hours helps mitigate that damage significantly.
There are plenty of store-bought sunburn remedies, but those over-the-counter solutions often contain mystery ingredients and come in single use plastic packaging. Boo on that! Check out these DIY solutions for treating a sunburn instead!
