Tampa Bay’s Top Sunburn Remedies. I’ve never seen anything like the surfers and paddlers in the bay area when it comes to slathering on the sun block, and covering up with long sleeves and hats when we can. This includes face and neck  masks. Because it works! We don’t need to preach the importance of sun block to you, do we? You already know that the more sunburns you get over time, the more likely you are to have skin cancer one day … and the more likely you are to spend your precious summer months in pain. Here are a few little-known sunburn remedies that’ll help you take the sting out of the burn if aloe isn’t cutting it.
