The end of August is upon us, and the summer is coming to a close, which either means you've already got your winter coat and boots on, or you're going on holidays to get your last dose of sun before the cold and wet Irish winter months properly start.
We are all so very diligent when it comes to applying SPF as part of our daily routine, but when the summer sun beckons, something happens. How many of you have ended up the colour of the red bikini you carefully chose in Miss Guided for your long awaited and much needed holiday abroad?
I know it's not just me.
However, when you're in a sunburn bind, there is a solution - and you can find it in your fridge? Yes, it's milk. Skimmed, to be exact.
The protein in milk coats the skin, unlike water which evaporates, and skimmed milk has a higher amount of protein (as the fat has been removed). All you need to do is pour the milk into a bowl, add some ice cubes, and dip in and wring out a clean facecloth. Then just apply the cold compress onto your burn.
It works wonders.
Have you planned a last minute holiday away?
