BEACH WEEK: Sees Has Sunburn

BEACH WEEK 2010: So you got a little too much sun, eh? It happens to the best of us. You're out of aloe vera? No fear. Grab some black tea bags and you're good to go. It really works! Read on:

"You'll need a bathtub, pitcher, water, rag, and three bags of black tea. Fill the pitcher with warm water and soak the tea bags in it until the water is almost pitch black.

After stripping down and exposing the affected area, soak the rag into the water and apply it on your skin without wiping it off. It's recommended to do this treatment as soon as possible, or before going to bed so your body can heal itself more effectively. A combination of the cool water and components of the tea (like tannin) help soothe the skin and speed recovery."

Let me know if you try it! What're your best burn tips? Minus the obvs of no sun!


  1. Interesting! I never knew this home remedy... I really try hard not to get sunburned bc I have fair skin...and being a red tomato doesn't really look good on me! haha

  2. Great tip!
    I've heard cold plain yogurt helps.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. ; )

  3. That is a very good tip! Thanks sweetie...I usually use those cooling gels:)
    Kisses and have a great day:)

  4. I've never used tea bags before to cure sunburns. I'll def try it out next time. As for my trick, though, I use Aloe Vera gel to help heal any unwanted burns. So soothing, but very very sticky.



  5. my mom always used to tea on our burns and I never had a blister! I love this tip...it has done 28 years of good for me;)

  6. Nice tip! I got a sunburn the day before I was supposed to be in a wedding, I used the cooling spray with aloe in it and slept with cold washcloths on my arms and it was much less noticeable the next day. Also avoid putting any lotion or Vaseline product on a sunburn; it coats the skin trapping in the heat causing the skin to keep cookin'.

  7. NICE!!! I am going to try this next time!! Thanks!

  8. Awesome!!!! Thank you so much!! I'm going to try this tonight! :)

  9. i'm SO sunburned right now-totally needed this tip! thanks!
