Hydrate: Sunburned skin should be hydrated, and lotion is a good way to to keep the skin moisturized. You can also use aloe gel to cool the skin.

HC 1% cream: Hydrocortisone cream (hc 1% cream) is over-the-counter, and helps when used 2-3 times a day for 4-5 days on mild facial sunburns. If the skin is cracked up and oozing, one should see a primary care doctor or a dermatologist (skin doctor). Hydrocortisone cream is ok to use on sunburned lips, and aquaphor or plain vaseline can be used on the lips in between Hydrocortisone doses.

Why would you use: An astrigent if you already have a sunburn? Ouch, ouch, ouch. How about allowing the tissues to heal first. You can break off pieces of aloe vera plant ; apply sap to skin.
