Soothe skin with an oatmeal facemaskiStock/Heike Rau
Oats have been used as a soothing skin treatment for centuries. Try this DIY mask: Combine 1/2 cup hot water and 1/3 cup oatmeal. Allow them to settle for two to three minutes. Mix in two tablespoons plain yogurt, two tablespoons honey, and one egg white. Apply a thin layer of the mask to your face, and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Gently wipe the mask away with a soft washcloth. The cloth will exfoliate your skin and remove any flakes that have already begun to peel off. Find more homemade facial mask recipes here.
Moisturize with aloeiStock/utah778
Aloe works wonders on sunburns. Apply a generous amount to your sunburn and layer a gentle moisturizer (with SPF!) on top of it. The combination will offer relief and moisturize your skin without leaving a greasy residue. Avoid petroleum-based moisturizers (such as Vaseline) and body butters. Both can intensify burns by sealing heat into your skin. Try these tricks to banish dry skin.
