The 5 Best Natural Remedies for Sunburn, and 5 to Skip

Feeling the burn? Whether you just missed a few spots when applying sunscreen or you blanked on sun safety all together (yikes!), it happens. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, more than 1 in 3 Americans reports getting fried to a crisp each year.

And the side effects are no fun. In a May 2020 survey by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), 60 percent of people reported that their sunburn made their clothes feel uncomfortable, 43 percent had trouble sleeping and 21 percent were embarrassed by their skin’s appearance.

While the best solution, of course, is to avoid turning into a lobster in the first place by slathering on sunblock, staying in the shade and covering up exposed skin, there are ways to soothe the burn if you slipped up. These quick and easy natural remedies for sunburn will reduce redness and soothe painful, itchy skin overnight.
