When you spend too long lounging in the sun and you end up with a sunburn, you probably reach for a bottle of aloe vera gel to take the sting away. Aloe vera is great for soothing sunburned skin, but black tea does exactly the same thing and you’ll probably already have some in your pantry.

Soak a tea bag in water and then let it cool in the fridge. Then rub the tea cold and the tea bag all over your red skin. The tannins in the tea will help soothe the pain and prevent your skin from peeling.
