Milk Compress

Stayed out in the sun, at the beach or by the pool, for too long? You can treat your sunburn with a cold milk compress!

According to dermatologists, a cold milk compress is more effective in speeding up the healing of sunburnt skin. Simply soak a washcloth in cold milk and apply to the sunburn. The milk pulls heat away from the skin; the lactic acid helps exfoliate the damaged cells; and vitamins A and D facilitate faster healing. Plain yogurt works similarly, too!
