After last week’s post on summer skincare tips, I decided it might be helpful to share one of my favorite natural skin soothing sunburn relief recipes just in case you have a little too much fun in the sun this summer.

Sunburn Soother

  • spritz bottle or small mouth glass jar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lavender or rose water
  • 1/4 cup aloe vera
  • 10-15 drops Lavender Essential Oil (optional)

Mix ingredients thoroughly and pour into spray bottle or jar. Keep in the fridge and apply liberally to sunburned skin. Stays good for about 2-3 weeks if kept in the fridge. Apple cider vinegar naturally calms burned skin (all types of burns, not just sunburns) and helps relieve some of the pain. Add the anti-inflammatory and soothing properties of aloe and lavender and you’ve got a skin-saving power team. Easy, natural sunburn relief!

A few more tips:

  • Apply a moisture-rich soothing lotion (lavender is always a good choice) to burned skin after applying sunburn soother.
  • Take lukewarm or cool showers to reduce exacerbating the burned skin.

Keep that skin healthy!

These are most certainly unprecedented times, but with a bit of a routine and perhaps help from others, we can ensure that our families remain successful during this time.

As we continually adjust to a “new” normal found in quarantine, the conversation has ought to shift towards how we can cultivate healthy habits for our minds. Having personal time and space away from those in your home to center yourself may be difficult to find now. I want to share a way I have been practicing mindfulness and “checking in” with myself, even for just ten minutes a day.

There comes a time when things are up for debate, such as if pineapple belongs on pizza or if the center of a brownie is better than its edges.
