DIY bug bite and sunburn remedies for summer

 
 

Sunburns

A cool bath often is the best way to relieve sunburned skin. Many believe in the addition of oatmeal, baking soda, or vinegar as a soothing agent. After a soak, try one of these home remedies:

  • Aloe (best straight from the plant, but pre-made lotions are helpful)
  • Shaving cream
  • Milk or yogurt
  • Potatoes (pulverized to a liquid, dried on the skin, and showered off)
  • Cornstarch (dusted on non-blistered areas irritated by clothing straps or bands)
