Easy to Make Homemade Sunburn Recipes

No doubt Vitamin D produced by sun-rays is necessary for healthy bones, but the worst thing we could do for our skin is to expose it to the sun. The sun's reaction on the skin is similar to that of age. It dehydrates the skin leaving it thick, leathery, wrinkled, patchy and dry. It is advised to drink three to four glasses of lime water before going out in the sun. There are several easy-to-make Sun-tan lotions and creams to face ultra-violet rays. Here are a few easy to make, home-made Sunburn Recipes for you.

Oil and Vinegar Sunburn Lotion:
Mix together the following ingredients in a bottle:
1 cup olive oil (or sesame oil)
1/2 cup vinegar
1 teaspoon iodine
a few drops of perfume (lavender)

Oil and Tea Sun Burn Cream:
4 tablespoons lanolin
3 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons almond oil
1/2 cup strong tea

Make strong tea, remove from the heat and strain it. Now melt oils in an enamel bowl over a water bath. Now slowly add the tea and beat continuously with a wooden spoon. Add perfume when it is cool. Lanolin and almond oil keep the skin moist, sesame oil has the properties to absorb ultra-violet rays. The tannin available in tea also absorbs the sun's burning rays.

Sesame Seed Sun Burn Lotion:
Grind 4 tablespoons sesame seeds to powder and mix it to one cup of rose water in a bottle. Keep it for 24 hours, shaking as often as possible. Strain and add 4 tablespoons Vodka or surgical spirit to preserve it.
