Cucumber is packed with analgesic and antioxidant properties, making it one of the excellent home remedies for sunburn. Containing 96% of water, it helps in repairing damaged skin and reduces inflammation quickly.

  • Take a fresh and chilled cucumber. Cut it into thick slices and place them on the affected areas. Leave them on for thirty to forty-five minutes to get relief.
  • Alternatively, you can blend some cucumbers to make a paste. Apply this paste on the skin and let it sit for twenty minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water. Repeat this treatment three or more times a day. You can also mix it with aloe vera gel for additional effects.
  • Another option is to extract the juice from a blended cucumber. Put it in the fridge for fifteen minutes. Soak a clean cloth in this juice for two minutes and apply it to the affected areas. You can leave it for as long as you want. Repeat the application as necessary for immediate relief.
