Home remedies for Sunburn

Posted by Lesley Carpenter on

  • Place a cool compress on sunburned skin for immediate sunburn pain relief.
  • Take a cool shower or bath to cool your skin.
  • Some natural bath therapies to soothe pain and other symptoms include:
    • Add one cup of apple cider vinegar to a bath to help balance the pH of sunburned skin, this also helps to promote healing.
    • Soak in an oatmeal bath. This is especially helpful for itchy, damaged skin.
    • Add some lavender or chamomile essential oil to the bath to help relieve some of the stinging and pain.
    • Add 2 cups of baking soda to the bath to help ease irritation and redness from sunburn.
    • Do not add soap or perfumes to the bath water as these can be drying on already dry and burned skin.
