Grandma's remedies to soothe the painful sensation
In addition to having several beauty benefits (whitening teeth, cleaning the skin and so on), baking soda can also be used to relieve sunburn. It is enough to dilute a tablespoon of it in a glass of water and to soak in this preparation of the compresses. These are then applied to the burnt skin. Repeat until the painful sensation subsides.
White vinegar as well as apple cider vinegar are among your trusted allies for sunburn relief. In fact, there is nothing easier than to prepare a cure based on express vinegar. Just pour a small amount of the liquid on a clean cloth and dab this on the burnt body parts.

The most popular recipe is to mix the flour obtained from 1/2 cup of oatmeal with ¼ cup of milk and a few tablespoons of honey. The preparation is applied to the burnt skin for 20 minutes.
What steps can you take to treat burnt skin?
In addition to having health benefits, teas (green, gray and black) are recommended to relieve sunburn. You should steep a few tea bags and soak a gauze pad to apply to the painful skin until it calms down.
Coconut oil is among the natural remedies that are used to heal sunburned skin. This excellent moisturizer penetrates deep into the skin while nourishing and revitalizing it. Just apply a little coconut oil to the affected areas with light circular motions until the skin absorbs the product.
If you've been sunburned, putting a few slices of tomato on the skin will help soothe the hot and burning sensation. Better yet: studies have shown that eating tomatoes helps protect against UV rays.
Tips to relieve pain and cool the skin
It is not without reason that cucumbers are a staple in SPA procedures. Slices of fresh cucumber applied directly to the affected area can relieve pain and cool damaged skin. Recommended 2 to 3 times a day.
Sour cream, skimmed milk or plain yogurt
Our last grandma's tip for treating sunburn is some dairy products. In fact, the lactic acid bacteria that sour cream, skimmed milk and yogurt contain, act as an anti-inflammatory remedy for sunburn. To relieve burned skin, it is enough to make a preparation based on skimmed milk, water and ice cubes in equal parts. Then, you have to soak a compress to apply to the burnt skin for about fifteen minutes. You can renew the compress every 3 hours. Another tip is to apply sour cream or plain yogurt directly to the irritated skin.
