No matter how diligent we are with sunscreen and wide brim hats, sunburns still do happen. When they do, we're reminded just how awful they are — and how hard it can be to get any relief. Unless it's an extremely bad burn, it's not the type of ailment you'd take to the doctor's office, but you don't necessarily have to suffer through with no options for relief. These natural remedies for sunburns that you can do at home should help you feel better more quickly.
There are a lot of ingredients in your fridge or pantry that can help you soothe your sunburn, from cucumbers to oatmeal or apple cider vinegar. Each of these remedies most of us find at home or you can easily pick up from a health food store, meaning you don't even have to venture far or try to order some incredibly exotic ingredient online. And there's no reason you can't try every single one of them, alternating until the sunburn eventually heals.
And while there are many natural remedies to try, let your sunburn serve as a reminder to pack sunscreen wherever you go and perhaps to invest in a UPF shirt because we can all agree: sunburns are a summer bummer.
