You need: aloe vera plant (refrigerate to use another time)
- Snip off one of the stems of the aloe vera plant.
- Squeeze off the gel from the leaf and apply on your sunburnt skin.
The healing and antibacterial properties of aloe vera is because of aloectin B, which stimulates the immune system. Aloe vera gel which can also be found in health food stores are used in hospitals for burn victims.
But for better protection I prefer for prevention than cure, so I just apply Herbalife Soothing Gel on my face and neck area before exposing my skin to sunlight in order to prevent sunburn.
