Naturally Soothe a Sunburn

I know it’s a little late for a sunburn tip, but there’s still sunny weather in some parts of the world plus there’s always those tropical vacations! Next time you catch a few too many rays, try this natural remedy – apply a washcloth soaked in cold black tea to the sunburned areas. The tannic acid from the tea will calm the inflammation and some studies say it even helps prevent cancerous cells from forming. After applying the tea compress, cover the tender spots in an all natural aloe vera gel (it shouldn’t be neon green) or even better, break off the leaf of a live plant.
