An aloe vera gel is your best bet for soothing a pink nose or shoulders – and PraNaturals' offering has dozens of five-star reviews on Amazon.

According to its description, the gel's "naturally hydrating texture" and the fact it includes "dozens of healthy substances" is what makes it so effective.

The ingredient list also reveals it contains more aloe vera than water.

As this isn't standard practice, it should feel more soothing on your skin than other products.

It's 100 per cent certified by the Vegan Society, and is "produced using carefully selected, organically grown mature leaves".

As well as sunburn, it's said to help with stretch marks, itchy or irritated skin, bug bites, cuts, rashes, scalp itchiness and dandruff, cellulite and calming the skin after shaving.

And if the reviews are anything to go by, it's definitely worth a shot if you've been left looking a bit red.

One person commented: "I very stupidly got sunburnt on a windy day and used this on my burnt skin. It instantly soothes and in 2 days all the redness and soreness had gone and I didn't peel."

Another said: "The best thing for sunburn! I had quite bad sunburn on my shoulders and I used this for 2 nights and it helped so much (took away the stinging sensation and stopped me peeling)."

Sun safety tips for hot weather

  1. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before sun exposure to allow the ingredients to fully bind to the skin. Reapply the same amount every two hours.
  2. Shut windows and pull down the shades when it is hotter outside. You can open the windows for ventilation when it is cooler.
  3. If you're vulnerable to the effects of heat, avoid the sun during the hottest part of the day (11am and 3pm).
  4. Keep rooms cool by using shades or reflective material outside the windows. If this isn't possible, use light-coloured curtains and keep them closed (metallic blinds and dark curtains can make the room hotter).
  5. Have cool baths or showers, and splash yourself with cool water.
  6. Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol – water, lower-fat milks and tea and coffee are good options.
  7. Listen to alerts on the radio, TV and social media about keeping cool.
  8. Plan ahead to make sure you have enough supplies, such as food, water and any medications you need.
  9. Identify the coolest room in the house so you know where to go to keep cool.
  10. Wear loose, cool clothing, and a hat and sunglasses if you go outdoors.
  11. Check up on friends, relatives and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves.

One particularly impressed shopper praised: "I don't normally rave about a product or even write reviews on products I buy, only cause I buy so many it's hard to keep up.

"But I can honestly say hand on my heart this stuff is a godsend from heaven."

Still not convinced? At just £5.99, it won't break the bank.

Just make sure you buy a bottle of factor 50 while you're at it.
