If you spent a little bit too much time out in the sun at a 4th of July BBQ yesterday, try this simple cooling peppermint sunburn lotion recipe from Bath and Body Recipes to help soothe your skin.
2 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. witch hazel
1/2 cup baking soda
1-2 drops peppermint oil
Mix all ingredients together to form a thin, milky mixture. Shake well. Makes 3 1/2 oz.
To use: gently apply to sunburned skin and allow to dry. Re-apply, if necessary.
