GREEN UP YOUR GAFF

SEEDS FOR SUNBURN

30th May 2018

Words by Jessica Peace

Forgot the factor 30 on your shoulders… knees and toes - time to call on Agony Plant and get that mossy first aid box open.

ROLLING IN ALOE

Keep this spiky beast on your window sill, ready to crack off a leaf and smooth that soothing gel on your shoulders. Oooh, that’s the ticket.

STUFF YOUR FACE WITH SEEDS

Scientists have proven that vitamin E reduces the pain of sunburn. You want to be chewing on sunflower seeds and raw nuts they’re full of it.

KNOW YOUR ONION JUICE

We’ve all experienced those cold shivers after a few beers on the grass - if you’ve got sunstroke onion juice is what you need. Press it, hold back the tears and whack it behind your ears, wrists and feet - I’d try anything in that state.
