If you're burnt as bad as I am to start seeking the internet for remedies you know you've already heard of before... save yourself some trouble next time and invest a few bucks in a bottle of water babies 55 proof sun block and you won't get burned! I went to Destin, FL one year and I rubbed myself down about 30 minutes before going out, and then reapplied a 2nd time before stepping out into the sun. This is key in preventing a burn, you have to let the lotion absorb into your skin before exposure if you want it to work. I stayed in the sun ALL DAY, over 8 hours. Of course with a few reapplications and some spray sun block as well. But I didn't get so much as a little pink! The next day before we left the beach I decided I wanted at least a little sun and went out, for only half an hour in mid-day summer sun, with no sun protection at all and got burnt, and more than just a little bit! Just to show how bad it would and could have been the day before!
