Nothing has ever really worked for me...some people say pure aloe, but that just left me feeling sticky and yucky. Vinegar baths do not just end up smelling. You just have to let your skin heal on it's own.

But do put vitamin E cream on, it helps prevent permanent damage to the skin.

I'd hug you, but that would hurt

aha, i see that you have been laying out on the beach checking out the hot Aussie surfers! lol

anyway, i don't think there is anything you can do to get rid of it other than to let your skin heal itself. keep applying the aloe and vitamin E to take care of your skin.

good luck!

aloe vera gel doesn't really make the sunburn go away, but it helps soothe the stinging feeling and helps when your skin starts to dry out and peel...I always use aloe vera.

Take Vitamin C--natural anti-inflammatory. Also, aloe vera gel works wonderfully--drains the heat right out of the sunburn.

This is how I always get rid of mine, and it works wonderfully for me.

Vaseline Intensive Care w/Aloe Vera works great.

Vitamin C orally. I've also cut open Vitamin E gel caps and applied directly to the affected area. Any form of Vitamin E on the skin will help.

Hope you feel better.

Vitamin E is good or if you have pain there use Aloe with lidocane in it. Lidocane is a local pain releif that will help with the burn. Or you can soak some towns in ice water and place over the burn. That is if you are just sitting around.

I heard that going back out in the sun for a long long time reverses the sunburn

Be careful with lidocane. It's a known allergen, and can cause significant surface allergic reactions.

Aloe Vera is good.
