Use a very rich moisturizer or lotion that contains Aloe Vera, vitamins, and water. Aloe Vera reduces inflammation, stimulates the production of collagen and also accelerates wound healing. Unfortunately once a sunburn occurs there is nothing you can do but let the healing process run its course. Do not peel the skin off especially when it is not ready to flake off naturally as this can cause permanent scarring. Use an exfoliator once a week to remove dead skin cells.
