How to Treat Sun Burned Skin?

I went to the beach 2 days ago and I got fried! I put on sunscreen but I guess it wasn't enough (I only applied it once during 4 hours at the beach). My skin is reddish and dry. I have no current acne but I want to heal my skin cause it hurts! What should I do? Use aloe vera?

Yeah, I think aloe vera is good for that. But don't ever use vaseline. I make that mistake. I thought it would soothe the skin, but actually your skin is trying to let off heat when it's burned and the vaseline traps the heat inside and makes you hot and painful and uncomfortable.

Aloe is very good, so is cold milk. What I do is that I take a paper tpwel and pour some milk on it, freeze it (that takes like 3 mins) and let it sit on my face until melted. Drink lots of water too.
