Arm & Hammer Baking Soda can help treat skin irritations like sunburn (as well as other summer-related issues like bug bites). Here's the recipe for relief: Dissolve 1 to 2 cupfuls in a tub of warm water. Soak for 10 to 30 minutes as needed or as directed by a doctor. Pat dry (do not rub) to keep a thin layer on the skin. Or, to treat smaller areas (like if you missed the top of your feet when putting on sunscreen), create a paste by adding water slowly, and apply directly to the affected area.
