Today marks the first day of summer, also known as the Summer Solstice. Historically, the day is used to celebrate the sun and warmth. While we all love basking in the summer sun, this can also lead to harmful UV damage and sunburn. In honor of the Summer Solstice, here are a few quick and easy remedies for sunburns:

Aloe Vera Plant – Cut off a leaf, squeeze out the goo, and apply directly onto the burn.

Frozen Peas – Another quick remedy for burns is to apply a cool ice pack onto the injured skin. A package of frozen peas straight from the freezer works great!

Vinegar – Diluted vinegar compresses dabbed onto burned skin also helps to relieve burn pain.
