Homemade Sunburn Remedies
A few weeks ago, The Peaceful Housewife posted about Homemade Sun Care Remedies and a few of our readers have been e-mailing us with even more. I also found this article from Associate Content about Sunburn Relief. I say all of this as my back is burning from being out in the sun way too long.
Here are a few of my favorite remedies:
1. Peppermint Oil: I love this mainly because it smells good. I saw my husband's cousin put some of this on her son's sunburn and he loved the way it felt and I love the way it made the whole room smell good. Pick up some peppermint essential oil and rub it on the burn.
2. Aloe Vera: This was what we used growing up, straight from the plant. But, you can also buy it pretty cheap at your local store.
3. Milk: You can actually dab this on the burn with a cotton ball. Rub a little Oreo on there to make it even better...ok, just kidding. I thought it was funny.
4. Cold Bath: The shower hurts when you have a sunburn, soak in a cold bath. I've even heard some folks put baking soda in there but the article I read above suggests oatmeal.
