Sunburn Soothing Lotion For The Summer.

We've all been there, right? The red hot scorched skin that hurts so much you can't move. We know better but we act like complete morons and somehow let it slip our mind to put on enough SPF.

Lucky for you I found a do-it-yourself sunburn soothing lotion on and will share it with you--just because I like you. :)

2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon witch hazel
1/4 cup baking soda
1-2 drops of peppermint oil

Directions: Mix together all ingredients in a container with a lid to form a thick, milky solution. Shake well before applying. To use: Gently apply to your sunburned skin and allow to dry. Reapply if necessary. You may also want to rinse your skin after the lotion absorbs and works its magic because it leaves film as it dries (you know, in case you decide to venture out -- tan lines and all).

You got it? Alright, now go have some summer fun.. and wear your sunscreen this time!


  1. Thanks. I could have used this last week. Haha. Maybe it'll come in handy should there ever be a next time (but I hope there isn't).

  2. I hope there isn't another time too Alicia, but just in you know what to do ;)


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I always make time to read each and every one. ♥
