While most people are aware of the dangers of over-exposure to the sun, from time to time, you may find yourself in the situation of acquiring a most-dreaded sunburn. And with a sunburn comes the need for relief of redness and pain. Fortunately, with Noxzema, a household beauty product you may already have in your home, you can attain just that.

How to Relieve a Sunburn with Noxzema

Step 1

How to Treat Sunburn With Noxzema
Allow Noxzema to sit on your skin, don't rub it in. Photo Credit hidratar la piel image by caironbohemio from <a href='http://www.fotolia.com'>Fotolia.com</a>

Apply Noxzema to sunburned skin. It should remain white and rest on your burn to allow for slow absorption and maximum relief. According to ehow.com, you should not rub it into your skin; just gently apply and let it rest.

Step 2

Allow enough time for it to absorb into your skin and no longer appear white. During this time you will need to sit down gently or lie flat. Place a towel over the place you intend to rest so that the Noxzema does not rub off onto your furniture or carpet.

Step 3

Rinse off the Noxzema after is has been absorbed into your skin and is no longer white. Use cool or cold water. A shower with low water pressure or a soaking cool bath can help you to avoid any additional discomfort. Using your hand in lieu of a washcloth also helps to avoid unnecessary pain.

Step 4

Apply an additional application of Noxzema if you need further relief. Over the next several days, repeat the Noxzema treatment at least one time per day. Noxzema will help to relieve the pain and discomfort of your burn and also assist in keeping your skin moisturized as it begins to heal and peel.
