Bedbugs, five days of rain, lost luggage — these are just a few vacation-ruiners, but nothing quite compares to the damaged caused by a gnarly sunburn. It's a blow to both your skin and your ego when your sunscreen due diligence goes out the window after a few beers on beach and you're left with a painful and embarrassing burn across your chest.
We all mess up sometimes, and in the grand scheme of life, forgetting to slather on the SPF 50 everywhere when laying out in the sun is a pretty common faux pas. We're not here to judge, because a bad sunburn can happen to even the most careful. Instead, we're dishing out some helpful remedies in the form of aloe vera-loaded skin-care products — and they're so cheap, you can buy 'em all in bulk.
From 5-star cooling lotions and gooey green gel, to calming face cleansers and a $4 restorative lip balm, we have all the aloe products you should stock up on before your next beach trip.
There is a lot of product out there — some would say too much. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.
