Soothe Your Sunburn with Vinegar and Other Home Remedies

If a careless weekend in the sun has you red-faced and uncomfortably squirming in your chair, weblog Wise Bread rounds up a handful of cheap home remedies for your poor, sunburned skin. From vinegar to a crushed aspirin-and-water concoction, you can throw together most of the remedies using items you've already got in your pantry. Of course, a better solution is a good defense against the sun, but if you spent your weekend under a 97-degree springtime sun like I did, these tips—which don't include our previous oatmeal sunburn soother—could be just what your suffering skin needs.

    I know this sounds completely crazy but vapor rub is not just for colds anymore!! It is the greatest relief for sunburn I know of. I work with teenage girls, who are absolutely impossible when they get burned!! We use the vapor rub on their burnt skin and it takes out the itching, burning and stiffness.

    Try it.... what have you got to loose?
