how to heal a sunburn overnight | natural remedies

I’m ashamed to admit that this summer has been the summer of sunburns for me.

I shudder just typing that sentence…because I am such a freak about sunscreen and not being in the sun too long, and I am most definitely anti-cancer. (I think it’s safe to say we all are?)

But even with all the caution I usually apply, somehow I have still managed to get burned several times just in the last few months. Not cute. Not cute at all.

Thankfully though, some good always comes from the bad moments in my life, and this time it is that I have found a way to heal a sunburn overnight …Literally…and now I get to share this discovery with all of you. So I guess my pain is your gain.

What I go through to help others….

I’m not exaggerating when I say that within just minutes of applying this concoction, the pain and sting were gone, and it completely stopped hurting. I was still pretty red for another 24 hours or so, but never ended up peeling. And then thankfully it turned into a nice little tan a couple days later.

Okay, so here’s what you need:

  • Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar (anti-inflammatory)
  • Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil (this is a gift from Jesus)
  • Lavender Essential Oil (soothes, regenerates, and smells amazing)
  • Peppermint Essential Oil (soothes and cools)
  • Washcloth & water (application & dilution)

And here’s what I did…

If you guys try this, let me know how it works for you…although, I would just suggest not to get burned in the first place.

And make sure if you have your own natural remedies that have also worked wonders, to definitely share them in the comments below!
