I have to admit that I’ve had very few sunburns that needed treating in my life, but I’ve seen others cool a sunburn with this tea remedy and thought I’d pass it along to you.
1. Brew 3-4 bags of black tea such as Earl Grey. You want it VERY strong.
2. Allow tea to cool.
3. Using a cotton ball or a soft rag that you don’t mind staining, soak burn with tea, repeating several times as it dries into the skin. If possible, put on the last “coating” before bedtime and sleep in it. You can take a cool shower the next morning to remove tea.
This tea treatment seems to be a big help to most people. Just remember that tea does stain so be careful!
