Oatmeal -

This might look like an out-of-the-box home remedy to restore skin after sunburn but is highly effective. To stop your sunburns from getting worse, make a thick paste of oats and milk and apply it to your skin. You can even fill your bathtub with lukewarm water/milk and oats. Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants that help your skin soothe pain and stiffness. Milk helps cool your skin and stay hydrated to prevent cracks and bleeds.  

Apple Cider Vinegar -

Although this might sound uncomfortable, vinegar contains acetic acid. This acidic nature is a perfect antiseptic solution for any skin issue. In general, infected sunburns are worse than usual sunburns. Apart from the skin becoming sensitive, it becomes highly prone to infections and dirt. Use cotton balls or a washcloth, dab apple cider vinegar, or white vinegar on your sunburns. Make sure it is diluted. Repeat it every hour and see the difference.
