Sunburn-

Of course, the best treatment for sunburn is prevention. Use sunscreen, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun especially in the middle of the day, and wear a hat.

Repeated sunburns are associated with an increased risk of skin cancer, especially in fair skinned people. Also, long term exposure to the sun will contribute to wrinkles.

Aloe vera- The gel from the inside of the leaves is very cooling and helps to speed healing of sunburns. Apply aloe vera gel to the area immediately and 3-4 times a day.

St. John's Wort- the oil made from this plant is very helpful for speeding the healing of sunburns. Apply to the affected areas several times a day.
