In brief: SImple means
Sunburn is response of the tissues to injury from solar radiation.
It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to the area to promote healing. Do not use ice as this can injure already injured skin. Gentle cleansing and anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen) help. Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring . Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps.

In brief: Time
There's no way to make a sunburn go away faster other than letting you body heal itself on it's own schedule.
