  • Milk Baths

A classic trick, milk baths are the best way to soothe sunburns. Soaking in milk will help nourish and moisturize your skin after this harsh treatment. If you don’t have a tub, simply soak a towel in milk and compress it on the sore spots for relief.  It acts as a coolant and helps in reducing the pain and sensitivity around the area.

  • Vaseline

Use good ol’ Vaseline to soother sunburns. Refrigerate a tub of Vaseline and apply it on the areas affected by the sun. It helps your skin to regrow and stay hydrated improving the healing process.

  • Yogurt

Yogurt or dahi is a good way to keep cool since they contain good bacteria that help in healing your skin. Use it as an antibacterial cream to hydrate and provide coolness to the affected areas. It will also keep any infections from festering on your burnt skin.

  • Tea Bags

A quirky idea but very effective is to apply used tea bags to areas that are sunburnt. The healing properties in tea leaves help to reduce swelling and inflammation.  You can always make tea and soak a towel and compress it on the burn areas for relief.
