any treatment for pre-sunburn?

You've just been out in hot direct midday unclouded sun somewhere with a stupid high UV index and stupidly forgot sunscreen. You were out long enough to suspect you might have given yourself some sunburn, but you don't know for sure - yet. Is there anything doable immediately post-exposure (but prior to observing an actual sign of burn) that might help the skin fight the burn in any way that is not just pain-alleviating?

I suspect the treatment is the same as after knowing for sure you have the burn, but I'm still curious.
