I am so sunburned and need help! I’m in Mexico and I was sunbathing when I fell asleep with my huge Prada
butterfly sunglasses on and now look at me! I’m going to have to hide from cameras for days. I usually never get red, I
always get dark. It hurts! Do u guys have any remedies I can
try to help ease the pain and get rid of the redness?

Everyone here is making fun of me! Look at Reggie’s teammate and friend Bobby starting with the jokes. My whole body is burned but my face looks the worst because of the glasses. I will never wear sunglasses when sunbathing again!

    Try using cold tea bags. The tea totally takes the sting away.

    Kim, OMG I can totally relate to the sunburn. You need to use both Aloe Vera Gel as well as Aloe Vera Lotion. Once you have taken a cool shower apply the gel and once that has soaked in use the lotion and continue to apply every few hours. Hope this helps!

    Hey Kim! Same thing happened to me last year in Mexico (but I should have known better because I have fair skin). Anyway! Try PLAIN YOGURT to sooth/cool your skin and moisturize like crazy because it will get very dry.
    Hope ya feel better!

    Kim! OMG! OK first, WEAR SUNSCREEN! You don’t want to burn anymore than you already have. Second, use cooling aloe vera to help make the burn more bearable. It is also very important that you don’t let your skin dry out to prevent peeling.

    Banana Boat makes a great aloe spray that does a good job at calming the burn!(its a green can) it feels so good to spray it on! also cold showers, milk,& be sure to moisturize ur skin a lot or it`ll start to peel & that is even worse than a burn! gd luck!

    From Web MD
    Sunburn – Home Treatment
    Home treatment measures may provide some relief from a mild sunburn.

    Use cool cloths on sunburned areas.
    Take frequent cool showers or baths.
    Apply soothing lotions that contain aloe vera to sunburned areas. Topical steroids (such as 1% hydrocortisone cream) may also help with sunburn pain and swelling. Note: Do not use the cream on children younger than age 2 unless your doctor tells you to. Do not use in the rectal or vaginal area in children younger than age 12 unless your doctor tells you to.
    A sunburn can cause a mild fever and a headache. Lie down in a cool, quiet room to relieve the headache. A headache may be caused by dehydration, so drinking fluids may help. For more information, see the topic Dehydration.

    There is little you can do to stop skin from peeling after a sunburn-it is part of the healing process. Lotion may help relieve the itching.

    Other home treatment measures, such as chamomile, may help relieve your sunburn symptoms.

    I know this sounds weird but Milk also helps. If you dip a washcloth in some milk and place it on the affected area, it should help. It’s a bit messy tho. Def take some asprin.
