With all the fun at the beach you forgot to reapply the SPF lotion?

Here is a quick and helpful way to soothe your tender skin. The peppermint oil (a natural coolant), witch hazel and baking soda (two well-known sunburn soothers) in this recipe will bring you some relief.

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

Directions: Mix 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 leave to dry. Reapply as and when needed. You may also want to rinse your skin after the lotion absorbs and works its magic because it leaves a sheen as it dries (in case you decide to venture out to show off the tan lines!).
