it's that time of year again-SUNBURN season

hello, i'm am an avid receiver of sunburn, i have red hair and really fair skin, in fact i do not tan. i was wondering if anyone had good ideas of treating a sunburn? Most of the times I try preventing them, sunblock, long sleeved shirts, pants, but there's only so much I can do in 70 + weather! I also usually put aloe vera on my sunburn, but we have none at the time, is there anything else i can put on it because even though i have gotten used to sunburn, it doesn't lessen the pain each time. any help would be wonderful! thanks!

I think anything that moisturizes should be good for your skin. What SPF do you wear? I hope you wear at least 45 and a good hat, or the sunburns are going to probably cause you to get sunspots that you wouldn't get normally. I'm 25 and pretty fair, and I already wish I would have watched my skin in the sun because I have sun damage now on my face.

well the reason why I got this bad sunburn was because I didn't have any sunscreen on, I know stupid, but again lesson learned. I usually wear SPF 60 and that usually does it. What I have right now is blisters on my shoulders which hurt really bad and sunburn on my neck.
