Looking Like a Lobster? Ease Your Summer Sunburn with these 9 Sunburn Relief Lotions.

Don’t let a stinging sunburn ruin a great day at the beach (or the week after). Keep an after-sun remedy handy for those times you find yourself overexposed. Slathering on a soothing cream or gel will cool down your skin, prevent peeling, and speed up the healing process. Remember, you can get burnt in as little as 15 minutes, so imagine how much damage two to six hours of unprotected fun in the sun can cause. Always check the UV Index before heading out. And if you tend to burn, avoid sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun is strongest. When your sunscreen fails you, these sunburn relief lotions and potions will ease the pain.
