This home remedy for sunburn can be found in your kitchen
Summer has officially ended. And though most have had their fun in the sun, there are still those who are making their last minute get away from the city and rain to find a nice beach where sun’s still shining bright.
A frolic in the beach sure is fun but it has its price. Stay too long under the sun you’ll get burned – sunburned.
Fortunately, Portsmouth has some home remedy for mild burns.
You can use white vinegar on your cupboard as a quick remedy for sunburn. Just soak paper towels in it, apply to the sunburnt area and leave it until it dries.
According to Portsmouth, vinegar contains acetic acid, which is also in aspirin, and can help relieve the inflammation of the skin.
If you find the smell of vinegar off, evaporated milk can also do the job. Just pour some onto a clean cloth and then apply it to the sunburnt areas and it will provide a layer of protein that will lock moisture in and help to heal the skin.
Teabags can be used to ease the skin inflammation because of the tannins it contains. Just soak it in a lukewarm cup of water, put it on the affected area and leave on for a few minutes.
Yogurt can also be used to soothe the pain caused by sunburn. Just apply plain unflavored yogurt to the burnt areas and leave it for at least five minutes until the pain begins to subside and then gently wash it off with cool water.
If you happen to have a Baking lying around, you can toss a handful of it into a cold bath and then soak yourself for 20 minutes – bicarbonate of soda is said to soothe skin inflammation and reduce itching.
