Natural Remedies to Soothe a Sunburn
There are four staples in your kitchen right now that are great for soothing summer sunburns. Here’s how each one can help. COLD WATER It’s not the most exciting or exotic choice, but applying cold water to your burn several times per day, for about 10 to 15 minutes, is very effective. Dip a washcloth or rag in the water and lay it against your skin to reduce irritation and relieve inflammation. OATMEAL To best use your oats, grind up a cup of oatmeal, pour it into a bathtub filled with water, and soak yourself in the tub so that your burn is submerged. Or try wrapping dry oatmeal in an absorbent material like gauze and running cool 4 • We’re listening to you.
water through it into a container. Soak a small cloth in the solution and apply it to your burn every few hours. YOGURT Yogurt is excellent at absorbing the burning sensation of a sunburn, and eventually, after four or five applications, yogurt can eliminate the redness too. Another positive effect: The lactic acid in yogurt dissolves dead skin cells, which prevents peeling. Pat your skin dry after you’ve rinsed off the yogurt, and remember, if you take the yogurt route, make sure it’s plain yogurt — not vanilla — and contains live cultures. BAKING SODA You should approach baking soda a little bit differently than the other choices. All you have to do is sprinkle some baking
soda into a lukewarm bath, like you would with the ground-up oatmeal. Go ahead and soak in the water, but when you’re done, don’t dry your skin. This nontoxic solution will soothe the pain long after you’re done soaking, as long as you let it.
