Recent sunburn (last weekend) it's still red, peeling, but but it's light brown now. I'm using aloe and cream. Is this normal?

In brief: Absolutely.

Skin pigment changes are expected after UV exposure, even if excessive exposure causes some initial inflammation, "burn".
Best to avoid the burn, with is more likely to be associated with subsequent skin cancer than the pigment changes of a more gradual exposure.
