Marigold's can help with sunburn

With temperatures soaring in the Mediterranean, the one thing most people forget is the effects of  UV rays on the skin. Rather than purchasing expensive products full of artificial chemicals to soothe your skin, why not try some natural skin care made from pot marigold or calendula petals.

Marigolds have natural chemicals which can help repair cell damage from UV rays. To make your own marigold treatment harvest two cups of flowers and steep them in three cups of boiling water . Allow the mixture to thoroughly cool and strain the flowers. Keep the liquid in the fridge and dab it onto affected areas with a soft cloth or with a cotton ball.
