    I was outside all day doing nail art at an event for my job. It was sunny and I was burnt badly.

    Anyone have any tips on getting rid of a sunburn?

    Aloe!!!!

    If you are too burned to rub it on you can get liquified Aloe and spray it on. If you start using it early enough and often you won't even peel.

    I saw this on Pinterest a few weeks ago. Sure wish I had known about it in years past. Haven't tried it (but most of the reviews said it did work). If you give it a shot, post back here and let me know if it works.

    Yep that's what I always did. taking a tepid bath with vinegar added to the water is good. Aloe is great.

    I burnt my back really badly the year that I turned 13 and the only thing that helped me was calamine lotion. I never felt so better in my life because that burn HURT!!!

    God bless you always!!! :) :) :)
