A popular traditional remedy for sunburn consists of boiling lettuce leaves and then straining the resultant water. You can dip a cloth into this nutrient-infused mixture and apply directly to the sunburn areas of your skin. This works as an effective anti-inflammatory agent and soothes redness quickly. Possessing potassium, biotin, vitamin B1, vitamin C, and many other important nutrients, boiled lettuce leaf water can quickly remedy most of the symptoms of sunburn, and improve the healing process following a burn.
