What is the best cure for a sunburn?

I got an incredibly bad sunburn yesterday, I can’t move enough to go to the store and by aloe. What is a good home remedy for a sunburn?

Aloe is the best, IMHO, but an oatmeal bath will work as well as the other suggestions mentioned.

White Vinegar!

Aloe is unbeatable the day after. But if you get home from the beach and find yourself sunburnt, cut some slices of a tomato and put it on your skin, this has a very soothing effect.

I always soak in tepid water with Baking Soda. Stings but makes is heal much faster. Jason’s organic 80 percent aloe lotion is awesome to apply 3 times a day also. And there are some creams that relieve pain but I have not used them.

The best cure is prevention. Next time sunscreen and cover up.
