Sunburn Have a shower

At the end of your day, take a shower and slowly turn the cold water off until the hot water takes the sting away the sting from your skin. Then (this is not pretty, but it works), put Preperation H on the sun burned areas.... When you wake up in the morning, you will not feel burnt at all. As well, if you really overdid it, this will help to stop your skin from swelling and peeling.
