Thank Goodness for Aloe!

I’m naturally a tan person, so one day I thought, why am I even bothering with sunscreen? I never burn! That same day we went to the beach.

I decided not to go through the mess and hassle of wearing sunscreen. I paid for it dearly.

After falling asleep in the sun for a short hour, I woke up with the worst sunburn that I have ever seen, and certainly that I have ever felt.

Every part of my body that had been exposed was lobster red and painful to the touch.

All I could do was moan on the drive home, and crawl into bed when we finally got there.

Thankfully, we had a huge bottle of aloe vera, which I had never needed before but (thankfully) discovered that day.

It was such a nice feeling, like ice over the burns. It helped me heal, certainly, but more than that it soothed the pain. It is by far the best treatment for any sunburn.
