Tomatoes are naturally cooling and feel good to the skin. Rubbing tomato on a sunburn area can help soothe the burn. Try this remedy. It is easy and you can also get tomatoes easily in the market.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Sunburn cannot be removed immediately but it will fade in time. Make sure you keep it well-moisturized and use something like aloe vera to help with discomfort.

If the burns are very bad, see a doctor. In future, use a good sunscreen and keep your hands out of the sun as much as possible. Sunburn is very bad for the skin and can contribute to skin cancer.
