Aloe Alternatives for a Sunburn
Once you are through feeling guilty for over doing the sun or underdoing the SPF15sunscreen, hop in a cool shower or bath. Then, as an alternative to the ever-popular aloe, consider applying lavender oil over the burned area. As an alternative to lavender, some health practitioners recommend using the contents of Vitamin E gel caps, which you pierce with a needle and empty into a small container or large ladle or cooking spoon. Another option is to cut the end, to allow the gel to slide out. Be careful poking and cutting, so you don’t hurt your fingers. Often, the Vitamin E mixed into aloe creams is such a small does that it won’t be as helpful.
