Sunburns are painful and not too hot for your health, either. Luckily, there are lots of natural sunburn remedies to soothe damaged skin!

So, maybe you forgot to re-apply your sunscreen after a dip in the ocean, and now you’re dealing with sunburned skin. 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!
