After Sun Cream

Even though I sat under our umbrella and applied sunscreen several times yesterday, I still came home looking like a lobster. Fortunately, the kids and Anthony look and feel great! But my skin is really sensitive to the sun. (Lucky me, huh?) Anthony looked up what to do in my reference guide this morning and applied this amazing combination to my skin before he left for work. (#marriedakingThis lotion is a favorite of mine all on its own but when it is boosted with additional essential oils, it is extra fantastic! The peppermint helps with the burn and makes it feel nice and cool. The lavender helps with the sting and speeds up the healing. If I keep it on every few hours, I feel good! It is definitely a great blend to remember for the summer time. 

After Sun Cream

1/4 cup Lavender Hand & Body Lotion
6 drops Peppermint
8 drops Lavender

Mix well and apply as needed. (Be sure to avoid your eyes when applying.)

Note - You absolutely could use whipped coconut oil in place of the lotion! Although, this lotion really helps with the itching because it is just so creamy and soothing. It really feels like a luxurious treatment.
