I don’t know about you, but I am a bit fair skinned. I also spend a lot of time out in the sun playing tennis or taking the kids to different sports activities. Even on vacation going to the pool or the beach can lead to a lot of unintended sun if you are not careful. I have found this all natural after sun relief really helps me soothe the skin. It’s also super easy to make. After you finish reading, check out these other items you can make with essential oils.
There are so many different ways to get relief from a little too much time in the sun. I don’t know of anything that will just make it go away, but when I am feeling the burn, I like to give this little concoction a try.
Here is what I use:
- Epsom Salt
- Roman Chamomile
The thought process for using the Epsom salts is because when I was younger, it’s what my mom would make me soak in. I have always loved how clean and refreshed my skin felt after a long soak in Epsom salts. It’s just so soothing.
Roman Chamomile can be soothing to all types of skin, and can even be used with massage oil to soothe tired post workout muscle discomfort. (It’s also great to use with restless children!)
Lavender is one of my favorites! I use it all of the time, and it’s soothing effects are perfect to help soothe my skin, or even to help wind down before bed time.
All Natural After Sun Relief
Epsom salt alone is probably good, but I like to add a little Lavender and Roman Chamomile to the salts before placing them in the water. I add about 15 drops of each (Roman Chamomile and Lavender) to two cups of Epsom Salt.
Add the Epsom salts to the bath with the while running the water. Once you get in, soak for twenty minutes to allow the soothing to commence.
