DIY sunburn relief spray

I am so ready to be outside, playing in the garden, going to the park and heading to the beach. I’m ready for the sun. However, I am not ready to handle a sunburn.

While we generally don’t get sunburn, sometimes though time gets away and I spend a bit too much time in that glorious sun. Last Spring I was so anxious to spend time outside, I totally didn’t realize I got too much sun until my skin was a nice shade of red.

Since my episode last Spring, I spent some time combining some of my favorite ways to help get over the burn more quickly and put them in one great DIY sunburn relief spray.

It is so nice to have this around to spray and soothe the skin. Even when you really didn’t get a burn, this DIY sunburn relief spray will still feel good on slightly pink skin.

The nice thing about this spray is that you can use all the ingredients or just some. Each has their own purpose but all are soothing to the skin.
