The Fourth of July holiday often includes spending time outside. But for those who burn easily, you might want to check this out: A Texas mom posted her family's sunburn remedy to Facebook.
That post has since been shared hundreds of thousands of times, gaining nearly 50,000 comments. But does it really work?
Cindie Allen-Stewart, a Texas mom of two young girls, posted a family remedy for sunburn onto Facebook last week, thinking she was just helping out some friends.
More than 200,000 shares and nearly 50,000 comments later, many are heeding—and some criticizing—her advice.
It almost seems too simple: just lather on some menthol shaving cream, keep on for 30 minutes, then rinse and repeat the same method one time the next day if needed, and then the next, until no longer needed.
Allen-Stewart says menthol shaving cream is her chiller of choice when relieving that burning red.
But is it the best remedy out there?
