    What do you guys do for an all over sunburn?

    Advertisements
    I am burnt on my legs, arms, tummy and middle back (strangely not on my face, chest, or shoulders).

    I don't think I've ever burned on my legs, arms, or stomach.

    Is there anything special you guys do for sunburns? I am sad and freaked out I might peel on my legs... ewwwwww.

    Aloe vera, painted on thick until my body absorbs it, then cool shower, and then paint on lotion. Repeat morning and night. I've been doing it the last few days too. I feel your pain!

    If you take advil within an hour of coming in from the sun, it will cut down on burn. Otherwise, ALOE ALOE ALOE!!! (And, Advil). Don't lay out again until the burn is completely gone! XO and hope you feel better.

    Aloe vera, lotion, and exfoliate every time you're in the shower. Helps minimize the nasty peeling.

    I keep my aloe in the fridge. It makes it feel extra good when I put it on. As long as you hydrate (drink lots of water!!!), take some ibuprofen, and slather on the aloe you should be good.

    Yeah it's not fun.
    I got some aloe and have been putting it on thick... It's helping with the pain. Hopefully I can go to sleep soon.

    Thanks to all you ladies for helping me out

    On a sad note: I have an especially scary looking burn on the side of my butt, but only on the one side...
