There is nothing worse than coming back from a beautiful day at the beach with an ungodly sunburn, though it is often unavoidable. Instead of running to the store and buying gallons of aloe vera, these household items will give you sunburn relief on the spot and naturally.

Baking Soda or Cornstarch

Forget bath bombs and reach for baking soda or cornstarch instead to relieve your aching sunburned body. Both of these ingredients will help relieve inflammation on your skin as well as aid in any itching that you might be experiencing.

Ground Oatmeal

Using ground oatmeal in a bath is another relieving way to heal a sunburn. This is because when ground and mixed with water it has anti-inflammatory properties.


Honey is a sacred and ancient food that has too many health and healing properties to count. One of them though is antibacterial properties, which helps to heal skin quickly and keep it moisturized. Using raw honey is best if you have it for this treatment.

Cool Cloth

Although it seems obvious, because your skin is so hot from the burn, putting a cold compress where it’s most inflamed can help heal you faster and keep you comfortable.
