It’s hard to believe that it is already that time of year again. Summer is slowly coming to an end and soon flip-flops and bikinis will give way to chunky sweaters and cute boots.
But wait, it’s not time to kiss those tan lines goodbye just yet. If your family is like mine, it seems someone (usually daddy) always has too much fun in the sun. If you’re finding yourself looking in the mirror at your tender, red skin (and kicking yourself for forgetting to apply that third and fourth application of sunscreen), have no fear.
I have a tried and true DIY after sun spray that will have your thirsty skin thanking you in no time.
This spray is super easy, works well, and you may already have the ingredients in your cupboards. Get ready for some post fun in the sun relief!
DIY After Sun Spray Recipe
- Boil the tea in 1/2 cup of water.
- When the tea has cooled, mix in the aloe and essential oils.
- Pour the mixture into a spray bottle for easy application and store in the fridge.
- Spritz on after a cool bath or shower.
Yes, it’s seriously that quick and easy!!
And the best part? It smells amaaaaaaazing!!
Following each application, don’t forget to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. This way you’re healing skin from the outside in and inside out.
