I got a lot of sun this weekend while out camping, unfortunately I missed a few spots while applying sunblock and got a little burnt on my back.
Any suggestions of what to use for healing this? I guess I'm more interested in food/eating since I can't really reach the places that are red to apply anything to the skin. Although I do have an Aloe plant in the garden and might apply some of that to the few red parts I can reach.

I would think fennel and lemon. Both are good for healing the skin.

Beta Carotene rich foods..cantaloupe, mangoes, peaches, kale.........
And aloe helps a lot, I use it all the time and it`s so soothing.

I also think aloe vera should work to heal your sunburn.
It hurts doesn't it?
I hope you find a good remedy for it.

Vinegar also works great for soothing a sunburn.
