Ouch, you burned! Now what? Forget about running to the store to buy those pricey formulated lotions. Instead, ease the pain with Mother Nature's little helpers, most of which you already have at home.
 
Aloe Vera
Use the gel that's inside leaves to soothe burns and tighten pores. Apply a little to your face after cleansing.

Milk
Add a cup of milk to a cool bath and soak in it for 10 minutes to calm inflamed skin. 

Vinegar
Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar solution (1 tsp vinegar plus 1 cup water) and dab on.

Oatmeal
Add ½ to 1 cup of finely ground oats to a tepid bath and soak in it for 15 to 20 minutes to alleviate stinging skin.

Honey
Apply a thin layer of natural honey on the burn to speed up healing and minimize pain.
