Sunburn can strike any time of year even the most diligently lotioned sunblock enthusiast. An infusion of black tea and fresh mint makes a tincture that is both fragrant and soothing to a sunburn. The black tea contains tannic acid, a compound that draws heat from the burn and restores the skin’s acid balance. The mint soothes and cools the skin.
Pour four cups of boiling water over two cups of fresh mint leaves and three or four tea bags. Cover, let it stand for 10 minutes. Strain and let it cool. The infusion will keep in a glass jar in the refrigerator for a few weeks. Soak a washcloth or cotton balls with the infusion and pat onto the sunburned skin. If your eyelids got red as well you can apply the cooled wet teabags directly for 10-20 minutes.
For severe sunburn, especially when blisters start forming you should always consult your doctor.
