Got a sunburn? Use milk!

posted by Tammy Oakland -

I don't know about you, but I spend some time outdoors this weekend...and got a wicked sunburn to show for it!  OUCH!!!!   Yes...I know.... use sunscreen.  :)

Here's the deal if you forget sunscreen, like I did, and you DO get a burn....use milk!   Got this from Delish.   Apparently using milk instead of water can take some of the pain away and speed up the healing process.

It helps cool your skin down.  The Vitamin A and Vitamin D help you heal and the lactic acid acts like an exfoliant and gets rid of all the dead skin.    

You can either soak a washcloth in milk and put it directly on your skin.  or you can use yogurt and spread it on like lotion.....  (ok the yogurt sounds a little gross, but might be worth a shot)
