Soothe Sunburns with Calendula Oil

Soothing your sunburn with calendula oil -- a marigold flower extract -- can quickly ease the pain and speed healing, according to research at Connecticut’s University of Bridgeport. According to researchers, the credit goes to calendula’s saponins and flavonoids -- anti-inflammatories that calm pain, boost blood flow to damaged skin, shield connective tissue from UV attack and kick-start healing of damaged skin cells.


Try it: Look for calendula ointments and creams in your health food store or pharmacy under brand names like Boiron and Weleda. Store the ointment in the fridge so you can get instant cooling relief when you rub it on.
