Sunburn Remedy

Sunburn Remedy

Avant toute chose, essayez d’éviter les coups de soleil.

Mais s’il vous arrive de repartir de la plage/la piscine/du lac avec la peau cramoisie, vous pouvez essayer ce bon vieux remède : du vinaigre de cidre non-filtré et de l’huile de noix de coco non-raffinée.

Ariane, notre stagiaire au Studio, ne jure que par ça. Voilà comment elle procède :

D’abord, à l’aide d’un nettoyant très doux sans savon, on retire les résidus de crème solaire.

Ensuite, on imprègne un linge propre d’eau fraîche. On verse une cuillerée de vinaigre de cidre dessus et on tamponne doucement le coup de soleil. La sensation de brûlure devrait se calmer.
Le vinaigre de cidre est l’un des remèdes les plus efficaces et rapides : avec ses vertus astringentes, il calme l’inflammation causée par le coup de soleil.

Une fois que la peau a séché, on prend une généreuse noix d’huile de noix de coco qu’on fait chauffer entre ses mains. On applique sur la peau brûlée, et voilà !

Ça a marché sur Ariane, donc on voulait vous donner sa recette. Et vous, vous avez des remèdes maison contre les coups de soleil ? Bien sûr, il n’y a rien de mieux qu’un peu d’aloe vera qu’on extrait directement de la plante…

  • My Ukrainian grandmother’s recipe: put full fat sour cream on your sunburn. Cheap, calms the skin down and prevents peeling. Works like a charm!

  • Institute Estederm’s After Sun is the best in the class !

  • Eeep! While coconut oil may be helpful for after a sunburn has already started to heal, it is not recommended to put any kind of oil or lotion onto a sunburn as it will create a barrier on the skin thus trapping the heat inside – not good! xx

  • Plain yogurt. Slather it on, let it dry and then rinse off with a cloth. You may have to put it on a few times. Burning sensation and pain goes away, and the next day you no longer look like a lobster. A little messy, but it works 100 times better then aloe.

  • Applying aloe vera directly gives me this burning sensation sometimes. I use coconut oil for hair more often since it’s quite heavy for my skin. But natural oils in general are so soothing for skin, especially argan oil (bought mine in Morocco and it’s such a valuable beauty product!)

  • I do the exact same thing for sunburn and it always works. I keep reapplying coconut oil religiously. Almost grossly. But keeping the skin moisturized helps so much!

  • Tip from my mother: Cucumber. Cools and calms the skin and feels fresh.

    I usually use yoghourt. Korres uses edible yoghourt in its after sun cream, which you put in the fridge for a few hours and then apply. It feels extremely soothing. (

    It isn`t homemade but with a severe sunburn helps ALOE VERA GEL(99% or 98% in every pharmacy)and put it 2 to 3 times a day on the burnt skin till it isn`t red anymore.
    You can put also plain yoghurt or quark or everything with lactic acid on your skin.It helps ,but not the same than aloe vera.

  • Can you use the apple cider vinegar on your face or only body?

    Clinique after sun rescue balm or Decleor prolenge gel always helped me.

  • Le gel d’Aloe vera, c’est magique et si vous ajoutez un peu de macérat de Millepertuis et un peu d’huile d’argan, alors c’est encore plus magique!

  • Sour cream / kefir / natural yoghurt – they all do miracles!!
    Alternatively, I’m well stocked with BIAFINE :)

  • Redhead from Hawaii here! 100% shea butter always makes it heal quickly. And I do like that medicated aloe to help relieve pain.

  • You should never put oil on a sunburn!!!Butters and oils seal in the heat of sunburn so the skin cannot heal and sun damage increases. It’s really really bad to put oil on a sunburn!

  • I swear by buckthorn seeds oil – it’s great for sunburn, chafing, damaged nails, brittle hair – pretty much everything :)

  • In Romania we use yoghurt packaging, it’s a traditional way to treat sunburns. I usually use aloe vera straight from the plant, I drink tons of water/green tea and use baby oil to calm and hydrate my skin. Now, it depends on the sunburn… If it’s very serious, you should go to the pharmacy and get some sprays for fire burns…


  • We use Biafine at home.

  • I’ve always been told oils make sunburns worse as they heat up and keep the skin burning.. HOWEVER I got really badly burnt once and I used oodles of rosehip oil on it (Kora Organics has a body rosehip oil) and it worked wonders!!
