Hide it with make-up...sunburn is unlikely to go away in two days...

can see your dermatologist and see whether a topical or oral steroid might be helpful...and maybe some cold compresses...and possibly the VBeam laser might help...and no matter what you do, avoid overheating your body...no hot showers, hot coffee or spicy Mexican or Chinese foods...these make the red worse...and try to remember that the sun does indeed cause problems...good luck
