This Sunburn/Shaving Cream Hack Apparently Works!

Let me start by saying that, as a red headed white Irish boy, sunburns are NOT fun.  I'm always looking for that quick and easy tip for helping with sunburns.  This is right up there, and makes sense to me.

Facebook user Cindi Allen-Stewart recently shared her DIY sunburn hack in a post with friends. But it didn’t just help a few of her friends, her post blew up, with almost 50,000 comments and more than 220,000 shares. 

She says to soothe a sunburn,  slather on some menthol shaving cream. 

She posted pictures of what she did and her advice is to leave the shaving cream on for 30 minutes and then wash it off in a lukewarm shower. If the burn is still sore the next day, do it again.

"It may seem like it's a strange shaving ritual, but trust me! Don't rub it in, just let it sit on your skin,” Allen-Stewart writes. “It will start bringing all that heat out (you'll be able to feel it). You may feel like you are itchy too, but that's a good thing! Itching means healing.”
