Tea Time, Anyone? Don’t throw out the tea bag when making a cup of tea. Black tea contains the antioxidant tannic acid, which helps heal your burned skin and decrease redness. Chill the bag before bringing it in contact with your sunburn and rub it on the skin. The antioxidants in tea should help skin recover
Cucumber Slices Cucumbers are for more than just your eyes at the spa. Applying some slices to your sunburn helps cool the skin, especially if the cucumber was chilled before being sliced. Anything cool or wet will provide that feeling of "ahhh" when applied to sunburned skin.
Milk Cold compresses can also be soaked in milk to help afflicted skin feel less painful or itchy. One home remedy is cold milk compresses: milk in a bowl with ice cubes, soak washcloth and lay it over [the] painful or itchy area of skin.
A Yogurt Balm Those little containers of fermented milk in the fridge can help skin. Yogurt is healing and soothing when applied cool to the skin. Regular or Greek doesn't matter here.
Potatoes, Grated or Sliced Applying potato to the skin is an old remedy to treat sunburn. A cold potato will draw heat from the skin, and the potato and peel itself are purported to help prevent infection if the skin is broken

Welcome to the ole Bio page! Thanks for listening and showing this much interest in me and the Show!!
Okay, a little about me and my family. I'm 52 and happily married to my wife of 23 years, Ressa, have three great kids, Luke, (30); Leah (27); and Zach, (26); and a terrific canine companion, Berta, our sassy Welsh-Pembroke Corgi (7). And Leah and Scott have given us two grandchildren, (Reece, 3), and Liam (2).
Ressa and I are empty-nesters. I'm a complete a sports junkie, and am also a sportscaster, actually (although not here in Columbus -- at this time, at least). I've done the NBA (San Antonio Spurs); and NCAA Division I basketball; (Creighton University) and I-AA football (Texas State); as well as Pro Beach volleyball. To quench my sports 'fix' I play Fantasy everything ... baseball, football and basketball ... and watch everything. Oh, and yes, I'm a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge Huskers fan!! LOVE my Huskers (but also am truly a big Buckeyes fan)!
I'm an avid biker. I own 2011 Harley-Davidson CVO Softail Convertible, and ride whenever I can. I've ridden to Sturgis twice, most recently last year - and yes I actually ride it!
And YES, I really do have the Alarm Force Home Security and Video Relay system in my home; did get my Lasik eye surgery at Bloomberg Eye Center (June of '08); bought three Mustangs from Germain Ford; got my HVAC system from Custom Air; have had roof work done by Tim Newman Roofing; have a Kinetico Water System; used Greene Solutions for my added insulation; am an AEP Energy customer; drink Tim Horton's coffee (everyday!); contribute to Habitat for Humanity; and my wife did get treatment at Columbus Laser Spa! You'd be amazed how many of you ask me about that stuff!
