Too Much Sun?

If you end up with a sunburn this summer, soothing remedies can be grown right in your own garden.

The gel in aloe plants, for instance, lubricates and heals the skin. Cucumbers cool the skin and reduce swelling. Shred one to make a poultice for affected areas, or place slices of chilled cucumber on closed eyelids for 20 minutes to reduce puffiness.

The bright orange flower calendula (also called pot marigold) is anti-inflammatory and can help reduce the pain of sunburn. It is best applied up to three times a day, as a cream or an ointment. You can find calendula and other garden products at most health food stores or by doing a simple search online.
