Sunny days ahead!

Ooh I don’t know about you, but I just can’t wait to head to the beach and stick my toes in the sand.

But nothing ruins a great beach day like sunburn (except maybe that family sitting near you that’s feeding the seagulls… why!?).

Sunburn isn’t just uncomfortable — it produces free radicals in the skin, which damage DNA, promote premature aging, and increase the risk of skin cancer.

This DIY All-Natural Soothing Antioxidant After-Sun Spray helps soothe and hydrate skin, plus neutralize free radical damage.

The antioxidants in green tea combat free radical damage while witch hazel, aloe, and lavender soothe skin. As a humectant, vegetable glycerine draws moisture to the skin, keeping it well-hydrated and preventing any flakiness.

DIY All-Natural Soothing Antioxidant After-Sun Spray:

Ingredients

Makes 4 oz

*Note: Aloe gel isn’t naturally bright green! This specific gel that I link to and personally use is 99.75% aloe with just a few natural preservatives.

Directions

First we need to infuse the witch hazel with the green tea by combining the two and allowing them to sit for 1-2 hours. After 1-2 hours, strain the leaves from the witch hazel and squeeze the leaves to remove as much of the witch hazel as possible. Discard the leaves.

Combine the green-tea-infused witch hazel with the aloe gel, vegetable glycerine, and lavender essential oil in a 4 oz glass spray bottle.

Shake to combine everything and you’re good to go!

Spray generously on skin after sun exposure.
