7 Products For Sunburn Relief & Reducing Redness If You Had A Little Too Much Fun In The Sun

We've all been there. Well, at least I have. You've been sun-starved for months, and so you're desperate for some vitamin D, to feel some warmth on your skin and to build up some all important tan. You head to the beach, to the park, to a barbecue, and yet, before you know it, you've turned a less than fetching shade of red. But before you start to panic, fear not. While burning is definitely not desirable, nor advisable, there are some products to help it along. Here are the best products for sunburn relief and reducing redness that are available on the British high street.

Burning, of course, is a horrible experience. Maybe you've used sun screen and missed places, maybe you haven't been liberal enough with your application, maybe you decided (foolishly, as I know from experience) to forgo suncream entirely. You come inside at the end of a wonderful day only to find yourself a bright, livid, and uneven red. You get in the bath, and you feel as though you've been scalded. You get into bed, and the sheets rub uncomfortably against you, causing you to feel itchy all over. But because I feel your pain (literally) I've done the homework. All you need to do is buy the below (and wear an SPF to start with, of course.)

So there you have it: the seven best products to turn you from red to glowing, from itchy to smooth, from pained to happy. Remember, though, sunburn is dangerous, so despite these briliant post-burn options, the aim here really is prevention not the cure. You'll have a happier summer for it.
