Rubbing a potato on your sunburn may sound like an odd solution, but potatoes are packed with starchy compounds that can effectively eliminate inflammation. You can cut a potato into slice and rub the raw potato directly on the sunburn, or you can make a poultice of more finely cut potatoes and apply it to the burn for an extended time. If you want to relieve the pain and inflammation of a sunburn, you probably want to do it quickly, and potatoes are easy to find – you might already have some in your pantry.
