    I have a debilitating sunburn on my shoulders from the yard sale. I suppose sitting in direct sunlight for 8 hours straight, two days in a row, will do that to you!

    I had heard of this home remedy. Tons of bags of black tea in a little bit of water.

    (Sam, I hope you don't mind that I used all of your black tea.)

      Thank you everyone. It is too soon to tell if it has worked! My shoulders are nice and orange and sticky now, though. The plus side is that the apartment smells wonderful. Mmmm chai.

      Sam, I am kind of considering it. It smells really good. Haha.

      this one might sound odd, but when i was little i got severe sunburns all the time and the way my gran would treat them was to spray vinegar on the burns. plain old white vinegar will do. it immediately takes the pain out of your sunburn. the smell goes away after a little while, it's best to let the vinegar dry on your skin to let it do the best work. then you can shower it right off after a couple hours.

      hope you feel better.

      Thank you, dear. Believe it or not, I already did the vinegar thing too! Haha. I've tried about four different remedies at this point.

      wait.... im kinda slow... do you put the tea on your sunburn, or drink it? im having trouble telling what you mean...
      but its a pretty picture any hoo!
      vinegar usually works for me, like louveciennes said but everybodys skin is different so it might work on me and not you.
