A woman in Texas recently posted photos of a shaving cream hack that can supposedly cure a sunburn.  The photos have been making the rounds on Facebook for the past week and the hack is pretty simple.

You just take menthol shaving cream, smear it on your sunburn and wait 30 minutes before rinsing it off.  That's it.  You just have to use menthol shaving cream and it supposedly helps your sunburn heal faster. 

A professor of dermatology at Wake Forest talked to Health.com and despite some of the claims we've seen online, it won't magically cure a sunburn but it might help with the pain, and help it heal a little faster.
