20 Weird (But Effective!) DIY Home Remedies [PICS]

2. Earl Grey Tea Can Fix a Nasty Sunburn

DIY2

There are several health benefits associated with drinking tea, but have you ever rubbed it directly on your skin? As crazy as it might sound, this is exactly what you should do the next time you get a bad sunburn. Simply use three bags of Earl Grey to fill a pitcher and allow the tea to cool until it is lukewarm. Put a clean rag into the pitcher when the temperature is right. Next, rub the rag across the afflicted areas of your skin. Feel free to rub the tea on several times.

It is best to do this right before bed because you do not want to wipe or wash the tea off until the next morning. If you complete this process correctly, your sunburn will be dramatically better after a few hours. Please note that it is best to use this DIY trick as soon as possible after the burn occurs.
