Filling a bathtub with oatmeal is something we commonly think of for relieving chicken pox, but it is also an effective remedy for sunburn. The soothing and anti-inflammatory nature of oatmeal when it is mixed with water can create a revitalizing film on your skin. Itching can be the worst part of a sunburn, and can lead to picking the burnt skin, which can lead to scars. Just as oatmeal removes the itchiness from chicken pox, it also eliminates the itchiness of sunburns, helping you control your scratching and speed healing.
