Well, this certainly would be easier than bathing in a tub of milkā€¦or pickle juice like Aaron uses

“According to new research, Vitamin D may be the cure for all the pains that come with a bad burn. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine found that folks who took large doses of Vitamin D within an hour of getting their sunburn saw significant reductions in redness, swelling and inflammation.

The study gave 20 subjects a burn using a lamp, and they were then given either a placebo or Vitamin D in varying doses. Those who got the strongest doses saw their skin irritation decrease within 48 hours, and also saw less skin redness. It is believed an anti-inflammatory enzyme in the skin is increased with the Vitamin D, which also triggers anti-inflammatory proteins and promotes tissue repair.” -USA Today
