Last wednesday I went to the water park with my grandchildren. I could not reach all of my back to apply sunscreen. The temps last week in DFW were way over 100 and I came home with a really bad sunburn on my back. Not the light pink or red, but dark red.
SO applied coconut oil (Nature's Way) on my back every day. After one week, there was never any blisters or peeling of any kind !! I am over 60 and this was a bad burn.
Coconut oil came through and saved my skin !!

Thanks for replying. After applying the coconut oil, I put on an old tee shirt. I have also done the same thing with my feet.
Thank You Peas for bringing this miracle stuff to my attention !

I've put coconut oil and a sunburn too and it helped. I've found that it helps just about any skin condition.

I did the same thing last weekend. I can't use it on my face (it stings) but worked wonders on my burnt shoulders.

FYI...this is why I love the spray sunscreens. I actually prefer using a lotion, because I will usually put a lotion on first thing as I get up to let it soak in a bit before going out, but I cannot reach my back.
The spray sunscreens let me do just that. I always am now able to get my back area if no one is around to do it for me. I just spray from all directions, sides, top and bottom of back and done.

I used it on a mild sunburn last month. No peeling whatsoever. Love coconut oil!
