How to Soothe a Sunburn Frugally: Cucumber Lemon Tonic

I have had more than my fair share of sunburns in my life.  I am very fair and still use 50SPF Sunscreen when spending much time outdoors in the summer.   I know how uncomfortable and even painful having a sunburn can be.   

Here is a great frugal recipe that can help soothe your sunburn and you may already have the ingredients on hand.

This tightens pores and can be used as an astringents, it soothes sunburn, and can also be used as a natural deodorant.
1 C. witch hazel
Juice of 1 lemon
3 T. coarsely chopped cucumber
Mix in a clean glass bottle, then let set for 2 days. Remove cucumber. Keep
lotion in a cool place or the refrigerator to use as a splash.
