Tip of the Week: A One-Ingredient Sunburn Cure

When you have a painful, inflamed sunburn—one that's constantly brushing up against your clothes, hurting more every second—you'll try just about anything to soothe it.

So hear us out on this one: Cold, plain yogurt might be your answer. The cool, creamy feeling will bring instant relief, and then the probiotics in the yogurt go to work—they actually help repair the top layer of your skin. Leave the yogurt on for five to 10 minutes, then rinse off in a cold shower (and be VERY gentle when you pat yourself dry!).
