Best Way to Treat a Sunburn

It’s happened to the best of us. You start out your day with the best intentions to protect your skin. But then you forget to reapply sunscreen after the pool rinses it off, or you realize SPF 15 might not be enough, you get distracted by the attractive lifeguard (hey- to each their own!), or the worst- you forget your sunscreen at home. And the next thing you know you’re as red as a lobster! Lucky for you, we’ve discovered the best way to treat a sunburn on Pinterest!

Everyone knows that aloe is God’s gift to the sunburnt masses. The benefits of aloe vera make it any beach girl’s best friend in the summer time. It makes your skin feel better immediately because it is a natural coolant and antipruritic (relieves itching). Plus it has anti-inflammatory properties that speed up the healing process of burns and its high water content helps moisturize skin. But what’s even better than aloe vera? Frozen aloe vera!

Let us show you our new favorite way to treat sunburns!

Whenever you get a little too much sun you can pop one out to relieve your sunburn! These cubes have all the benefits of aloe treatment, plus they feel great on sunburnt skin. Our friend Jenn, below, had to use them when we all got a little too sun-kissed at Juno Beach!
