This simple home-remedy for sunburn happens to be a bit messy, but it is extremely effective. Not only does it lighten your sun burnt skin, but also sweeps off dirty, dead skin cells, thus exfoliating your skin.
2 tsp. Vegetable oil
5 tsp. Besan (gram-flour)
a few drops of rose water
a few drops of glycerin
Before getting ready for your bath, add 2 spoonfuls of any ordinary cooking oil to 5 tsp of besan. Add a few drops of rose-water (gulab-jal) and glycerin and whisk all the ingredients well to form a smooth paste. Apply this paste, on your face, hands, and wherever your skin is sun burnt. Leave it for about 3 minutes, and then gently wetting your hands, begin to scrub off the paste. The effect of this paste begins to show almost immediately.
You could also try applying vinegar for sunburn. Another effective remedy is the use of tomato juice and butter-milk. Check it out here. Applying a slice of papaya or fresh aloe-vera gel all over your skin without rubbing too hard could also help.
