For those "fun in the sun" days that didn't include as much shade as they should have, Baxt suggests starting with a cool bath or shower for 10 to 20 minutes and avoid all soap and bath oils. Gently apply aloe vera to the sunburned areas of the face, taking care not to rub it in thoroughly. "Leave it a bit goopy on top of the burn, which helps prevent the skin from drying out and becoming more irritated," says Baxt. Repeat as necessary. Also, drink plenty of water to rehydrate your skin (at least 8 glasses daily) and generously apply an unscented moisturizer to the sunburn over the next few days or even weeks to minimize peeling.
