what natural things can you use to relieve sunburn?

Recommended Posts

Hey I am getting sun burnt pretty easily lately and today I got a bad one on my face because I am taking Doxy and it makes me mad prone to the sun. Can I continue to wash my sun burnt face with my Purpose wash and apply my retin-a .01%, or should I apply something else to my skin? Please let me know? Also keep in mind that the retin-a is the lowest strength and doesn't even make my skin the least bit dry. And I also use a clyndamicyn/BP gel in the mornings too. I prefer suggestions of natural products? And please don't mention pure 100% aloe vera straight from the leaf cuz I used to use it and it made me break out like crazy. Thanks.

You MIGHT want to try 1 drop of peppermint oil in a cup or two cups of water. Mix it well and then drip it over the burn. It should have a cooling sensation that lasts for hours. I use it every time I have a headache and it always works.
