5 Post Beach Skin Care Must Haves

Right now we are in the middle of a pretty hot heat wave here in the Midwest (a little early I might add!).  I'm spending a lot of time at the pool and at several area lakes kayaking with friends, so I need a few post beach skin care items in my arsenal this time of year.  

This year I am thrilled because it seems the products just keep getting better, meaning the products I choose really work better than some I used to carry with me years ago.  And of course there are always one or two must have post beach skin care products that I make myself. (see recipe below) .  Here are a few I can't live without.

DIY After Sun Spray Recipe

What You'll Need:

1 cup organic aloe vera juice – (refrigerate after opening)
20 drops lavender or Bird of the Soul essential oil
1 oz. mix of calendula/arnica/St. John's wort extracts (optional)
small spray bottle

How to make it: 

Using a funnel, pour aloe vera juice and healing oil blend into a small spray bottle. Cap and shake well. Add in 20 drops of lavender or Bird of the Soul essential oil. Cap and shake again. Spray for sunburn relief as often as you need. Aloe sunburn spray can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
