Home made: Sunburn Remedy!

Home made: Sunburn Remedy!

 O1Tea bags aren’t very big, so you can’t cover a lot of sunburned skin with individual bags. Take 8-12 BLACK TEA bags, cut the strings in the middle + tie them all together.

O2. Soak them in black tea concentrate. (Concentrate: add 6-8 tea bags in 1 cup of boiling hot water and let steep for 3-5 minutes. Pour this concentrate into a jar and let it cool to about lukewarm and then add your tied tea bags to the jar. Let those sit for another 2-3 minutes.)

O3. Fan the tea bags out on your shoulders, face, back, wherever it stings the most. Personally, I prefer that the tea bags not be hot or cold but room temp to lukewarm.

O4. If you’re skin is extra sensitive from the burn, put the tea bags in a soft t-shirt that you’re willing to ruin. Dip the t-shirt in the concentrate.

O5. Leave the tea bags/t-shirt on the skin until you feel it has soaked up the majority of the moisture from the bags/t-shirt. Do these compresses over and over until the pain dissipates (typically 5-10 compresses will do the trick) and take an aspirin to keep inflammation down.
