Soothing the pain of being outside in the Texas sun for a long four-day 4th of July weekend will leave a mark. Many of my coworkers came back to the job with some gnarly sunburns.

Did you leave your cell phone on your arm, while falling asleep during your time at the beach? That makes for an unusual sunburn, so you might want to turn that into an opportunity to try some unconventional remedies.

You could go with a commercial after-sun lotion. It works, but that also means a trip to the store if you don't already have some. Extra points if you do have some, and you keep it in the refrigerator.

Skip The Chemicals and Aspirin - Try These Unconventional Sunburn Remedies 

Take some time and consider what you already have around you and improvise. Here are some great ideas to get you started.

  • Potatoes
    • Slice them up and put them on your skin. The starch does the work.
  • Oatmeal
    • Take some Quaker Oats into the bathroom and get to soaking. Delicious.
  • Yogurt
    • Use just plain yogurt and slather it on the affected areas

The Texas sun just burns brighter, and if you weren't super on top of the sunblock application you might be hurting right now. If you are worried about peeling and how that will look, just imagine photos of you with all of these interesting Texas home remedies slathered all over your body on social media.
