While the heat has not really reached us here yet. Now thats not to say that we have not had some overly warm days. I know that the real heat of the summer is yet to come. At times no matter what we do over exposure to the sun in something that happens. I have recently located this new idea to help deal with it. Potato Paste, really potatoes? Yes, why not if they work and potatoes have long been known to help relieve pain and irritations such as soothing scratches, insect bites, and burns.
1. Potato paste
-A grater, blender, or knife
-Cotton balls, cotton pads, facial tissue, or gauze
Wash and scrub your potatoes thoroughly, and then either grate them over a bowl or cut them up and put them in a blender. There is no need to remove the peels. If you’re using a blender, give them a whirl until they’ve become quite liquid. If they seem too dry, you can add a small amount of water. Pour out the mixture, soak cotton balls thoroughly in it, and apply to sunburn. An easier perhaps more effective method would be to soak gauze and lay it over the burn.
If you’re using a grater, grate the potatoes over a bowl and apply the pulp, trying to get as much juice as possible. You can also try simply slicing the potatoes, and lying the slices directly on your burn.
