Protecting skin from the sun is a daily effort, especially outdoors in the summertime. Despite our best intentions, it's easy to wind up with a burn. There are plenty of sprays and ointments at the drugstore, but you can also soothe the pain and start the healing using more natural remedies. See a doctor if you come down with a fever or chills, feel nauseous, are covered in blisters or haven't shown signs of healing after two days.
Otherwise, we have 21 healing agents to help ease your discomfort, starting with wrapping an ice pack (or a bag of frozen peas) in a damp washcloth and applying it to the burned areas. This allows some of the heat from your skin to be absorbed. (Just don't apply the ice directly to the burn.)
