Put a cool rag on the sunburned area.
this a few times a day will take some of the heat out of your skin which will
make you feel much more comfortable. Cool baths and showers will help, too.
Apply lotion or moisturizer...
That contains Aloe vera or soy. Both contain natural cooling agents that will decrease any discomfort to your skin.
Drink a lot of water
Sunburn soaks up all the moisture from your
skin, so drinking H2O will help you avoid dehydration. Get yourself a reusable
water bottle (if you don’t already have one) fill it, drink and repeat. Bonus:
drinking lots of water is awesome for your complexion.

Talk to your parents
Ask your ’rents about taking ibuprofen to reduce any swelling, discomfort or redness you might have. If you feel weak, dizzy or nauseated, ask your parents to take you to the doctor. It could mean that the sunburn is making you sick, and that’s not good.
