This is incredible: brew enough tea bags to cover a considerable area of the sunburn and ice down to get the tea really cold. Place the cold, wet tea bags and/or a rag drenched in the tea over the affected area, keeping the bags and rags cold. If you can submurge the burned part of the body, do so into the tea. Do this for at least one hour as often as you can (3 or so times a day) until it fades. This works for second and third degree burns as well and will prohibit scarring! The tea works as an antioxidant and pulls the heat out of your body. It stops the pain temporarily also.

A third degree burn reaches the muscle and bone. If you receive a third degree burn, please go to the hospital instead of treating it at home.

I had a terrible blister burn on my face so I tried this. After just one day it is already so much better. I used green tea.

I only have a shower so I couldn't soak, but I brewed a few gallons of tea and sponged the tea over my back. WOOOOOW it worked quite well! Also, before I tried this, I rubbed shaving cream on the burn like lotion and it also helped me go to sleep, but the tea was far better!!! I recommend for everyone to try!

still love the sun!

I enjoyed the beach too many hours yesterday and am recovering from a severe sun burn. I brewed tea and used a t-shirt (that I didn't care about turning brown) as it covers a large area of my body...I am hoping it works well! As I am in MAJOR discomfort.
