cucumber aloe cooling sunburn pack

 This is a great sunburn remedy. I use it regularly when my family gets to much sun. Use it immediately the same day you get sunburned.

200 mg aspirin, crushed
1 cucumber, peeled and mashed
1/4 cup pure aloe vera gel

Crush aspirin with the back of a spoon until fine and put into a small container that has a lid. Take a small fresh cucumber cut into small pieces and put in a food processor and mash until you get a "paste". Combine cucumber, aspirin and Aloe in container and mix well. Put on lid and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Wash and dry the affected area and apply this cooling pack for 30 minutes, minimum. Use this pack twice a day for a few days or until you feel cooling from your sunburn. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
