Highland Neps actually receive more UV rays than their lowland counterparts. And that is what gives you sunburn.

Next time make sure you use a good sunblock and apply after a few hours, prevention is better than cure. Sunburn on lips can happen too, it hurts and inflamed by lips (like Angelina Jole, but I'm a guy so made me looks worse). So use sunblock lipbalm if you will be on or near water surface a long time. I got the burn from sailing for 3 days nonstop.

I'm dark skinned so I really seldom get sunburned, but I still use a high SPF sunblock anyway, coz my wife and family doesn't want me to be invisible at night

I have used Aloe vera for sunburn and other burns. A friend who is a nurse think Aloe works better than most of the 'mainstream' treatment. If used straight away it will reduce the level of the burn.
Better still don't get burnt, it lead to increase chance of skin cancer, something Australians know too well.
