I grew up in Florida, I'm a natural redhead with fair skin, I'm now 58 years old and have always sworn by Aloe gel. If you don't have access to a natural plant just buy the 100% Aloe Gel in the pump bottle (clear, no additives)... cheap, cheap (usually under 2 bux) at WM. I've been sunburned more times than I care to remember, even to the point of being hospitalized for sun poisoning... I could go on with more gory details but I'll spare you. I also work with hot glass, as in glass blowing, and have also received many burns ( I sound like a french fry don't I?) I keep pump bottles of the stuff in my studio. Because of Aloe I've never had any skin cancer thus far nor do I have any scars from sunburns, torch burns, hot glass burns, etc. The tea bath works too, any kind of black tea, takes the burn out but doesn't really heal, just soaking in a tub of plain water will ease the discomfort as well. So does applied white vinegar but that makes you smell like a salad. But Aloe... I recommend it enough.
