Brew 1/2 cup of green tea (leaves or bags) in 1 quart of boiling water for at least 10 minutes. Strain the leaves and set aside. Cool the liquid and refrigerate. If you used tea bags you may cool them as well and place them on your sunburn for about ten minutes before discarding them. This solution will keep in the refrigerator for approximately 10 days.
In order to use your green tea solution take a piece of cotton cloth that’s been soaked in the cold tea and apply to the sunburned area. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, or until the burned areas begins to cool. You can repeat this treatment up to four times a day.
Now go and enjoy your summer! I know I will.
