Turn Your Sunburn Into A Beautiful Bronze Glow Overnight

A Stinky, All-Natural Sunburn Cure For When You Forgot The SPF

***** I DO NOT RECOMMEND GETTING A SUNBURN TO GET A TAN. BE SUN SMART, PLEASE! *****

Ah, long weekends — the perfect opportunity to kick back, relax and enjoy some fun in the sun! But, no matter how careful you are... sunburns can and do happen. I accidentally got a sunburn on Saturday after spending more than seven hours on the beach, and the forecast for Sunday was hot and sunny.
