How To Get Rid Of Sunburn Redness Overnight?

Dealing with sunburn can be a painful experience. Sunburn occurs when your skin is overexposed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The symptoms of sunburn include redness, blistering, and peeling. In this blog post, we will discuss some effective ways to get rid of sunburn redness overnight.

Cool Compresses

One of the most effective ways to reduce sunburn redness is by applying cool compresses. Cool compresses can help to reduce inflammation and soothe your skin. You can use a soft cloth or a towel soaked in cool water and apply it gently to the affected area. You can also use a bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a towel as a cool compress.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory and can help to soothe sunburned skin. It has been used for centuries to treat burns and other skin conditions. You can apply aloe vera gel directly to the affected area or use a lotion that contains aloe vera. It is best to use pure aloe vera gel instead of products that contain alcohol or other harsh chemicals.


Milk has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce sunburn redness. You can soak a soft cloth or towel in cold milk and apply it to the affected area. The fat in milk can help to soothe and moisturize your skin, reducing redness and peeling.


Drinking plenty of water is essential when dealing with sunburn. Sunburn can dehydrate your body, so it is important to stay hydrated by drinking lots of fluids. Water, coconut water, and sports drinks are good options. Avoid alcohol and caffeine, as they can dehydrate your body further.


Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe sunburned skin. You can make a paste by mixing oatmeal with water and applying it directly to the affected area. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off with cool water. You can also add oatmeal to your bathwater for a soothing soak.

Over-the-counter creams

There are many over-the-counter creams and lotions that can help to reduce sunburn redness. Look for products that contain hydrocortisone, which is a mild steroid that can reduce inflammation. You can also use products that contain lidocaine, which is a numbing agent that can help to reduce pain and itching.


Sunburn is a painful and uncomfortable condition, but it can be managed with the right treatment. Cool compresses, aloe vera, milk, hydration, oatmeal, and over-the-counter creams are all effective ways to reduce sunburn and redness overnight. Remember to stay out of the sun and wear protective clothing and sunscreen to prevent future sunburns. If your sunburn is severe or if you have other symptoms such as fever or chills, seek medical attention immediately.
