Natural Remedies: Treating a Sunburn

Aloe Sunburn Treatment

aloe The polysaccharides in aloe sap can help your skin repair itself after a sunburn. Using aloe straight from the plant is best, but if you need to go store-bought, shy away from the artificially-colored, bright green variety and look for truly natural aloe instead.

Have you been wanting to grow aloe but were worried because you have a black thumb? Aloe plants are succulents, and they’re pretty hard to kill. They don’t need much water to grow, and they grow like gangbusters even indoors. They just need indirect sunlight, so stick your aloe plant by a window.
