Step 1

Get the coolest container of plain yogurt available from inside your refrigerator. Check the label to make sure that the yogurt contains live cultures.

Step 2

Add a spoonful of pure, aloe gel to the yogurt. Incorporate the aloe gel into the yogurt with a spoon. The aloe adds an extra skin-soothing ingredient to the yogurt. Alternatively, you may make a mixture of half mashed strawberries and half yogurt.

Step 3

Spread the yogurt onto your skin using your fingers or a spoon. Add thick layers to the affected skin so that the yogurt covers the entire area of the sunburn.

Step 4

Wait 20 minutes while the yogurt soothes your skin, warms and dries.

Step 5

Wipe away the yogurt mixture as soon as it warms or dries on your skin.

Step 6

Reapply another layer of yogurt if the pain persists. Repeat the process until you have used the entire container of yogurt and the pain subsides.

Step 7

Rinse the last of the yogurt mixture off your skin in the shower. Use cool water to minimize pain.
