Summertime is still in full swing! For anyone else who also is obsessed with soaking up all the sunshine all the time, I highly recommend this easy tanning oil option! Natural occurring SPF is in there allowing it to be a safe alternative instead of what’s in other tanning oils horrible for your skin.
Just melt coconut oil (about 2 cups), V-6 oil from YL (20 pumps), a little jojoba oil, some vitamin E and 10 drops of carrot seed essential oil!
What’s cool is that coconut oil is naturally 8 SPF, & carrot seed oil is naturally 40 SPF and jojoba is naturally 4 SPF. They are all super moisturizing for your skin, PLUS, your skin is still protected but also gives you that summer glow I love so much!
Happy sun bathing —(safely)!
Another summer fave!
What's cool is that witch hazel helps reduce inflammation and also can prevent peeling and itching. Aloe is also anti-inflammatory and has over 75 different yummy nutrients. It’s moisturizing, and acts to protect skin, accelerating the healing of burns when they may come up.
Throw this together for the perfect cooling spray that you can easily make from home!
+ 1/4 cup witch hazel
+ 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
+ 10 drops lavender essential oil
+ 5 drops peppermint essential oil
+ add all ingredients to spray bottle
+ screw on lid and shake well
+ spray on skin as needed for cooling moisture (let dry, don’t wipe off)
+ keep extra cool by storing in the fridge!
…happy staying bronze AND cool this summer : )
