Ways to Soothe a Sunburn

 

Aside from the common “apply aloe vera gel” to soothe a painful sunburn, here are a couple more useful and very helpful remedies that you should keep in mind when you are looking for sunburn relief!  (And better yet, most of the stuff you probably already have in your kitchen!)

  • Add 1 tsp. baking soda into a quart of cool water and apply the mixture with a washcloth to the sunburned areas
  • Apply aloe from an aloe plant
  • Apply grated potatoes to sunburned skin  (The starch from the potatoes helps to soothe and cool)
  • Add black or green tea to bathwater (or apply tea bags to affected area)
  • Apply egg whites for an instant cooling sensation
  • Apply vinegar to prevent peeling
