It’s a natural remedy, and great for me because I happen to be allergic to Aloe.

The tannic acid in Black Tea helps relieve the pain, as well as the tea itself  helping to soothe and cool the skin. You can apply it, and let it dry and soak  into your skin and you should see results in the morning. Reapply as needed.

To prepare, pour four cups boiling water over two cups of fresh mint leaves and three or four tea bags. Cover, let stand 10 minutes, then strain. Let cool, and transfer to a glass jar. Apply to sunburned skin with a washcloth or cotton balls. The infusion keeps for a few weeks in the refrigerator.
