It’s that time of year again!  We’re all donning our newly purchased swimsuits after shedding those 5 pounds and are working on our base tans; hooray!  Although I am of a complexion that earns me tan lines when walking from the office to the train station across the street, I do get a little pink around my cheeks and on the tops of my breasts, but there are those for whom there is not enough aloe vera in the world!

When perusing good ol’ Instructables.com I just so happened to find a sunburn relief regimen that sounds like it might work!  Steep black tea bags in a pitcher and dab the burned area with a soft towel soaked in the tea.  Do NOT use hot water and do not rub!  Remember that this is a burn and be gentle!  Read the full instructable here and stock up on sunscreen!!!
