When you get a little too much sun, your burnt skin can be relieved with this natural ingredient: aloe vera. The gel contains natural hormones that are healing and anti-inflammatory and help soothe scorched skin. While aloe vera gel is readily available at the store and can be applied at room temperature to the skin, take relief a step further and freeze it. Squeeze the gel into ice cube trays and let them freeze. When you've sunned too long, pop out a cube and rub it on the skin; you'll get aloe vera's healing properties and the cooling sensation at the same time.
