Summer is upon us and with it brings pretty strong sunlight and lots of long days out in it. Nobody likes to stay cooped up inside if we don’t have to, and why should you? If it is nice out, go out and soak up some sun. If at the end of the day you realized that you have a bit of sunburn, it is always nice to find a good remedy for that. You do not always need to rely on store bought creams and gels to help you get through the worst of the pain, you can easily make your own lotion that is just as refreshing as the stuff you can buy in the store.
Using a cooling aloe and mint concoction will give you just the refreshing touch you need.
You will want to have beeswax, aloe vera, coconut oil, and peppermint essential oil. First you want to grate some of the beeswax that you have into a small bowl. You will need about a fourth of a cup. Then take a half a cup of coconut oil and place it in a saucepan over low heat. Here you will also add the beeswax into the pan. Heat these two things up until they are just melted and smooth. Remove this mix from the heat and whisk in the aloe vera that you have, you need a half a cup of room temperature aloe vera. Then whisk in the peppermint oil, about a eighth of a cup. Let this mix come to room temperature and then whisk it or blend it in a blender for thirty seconds or until it is fluffier.

This simple lotion is great for not only the sunburn you got, but also if you have been walking all day and your feet and legs are sore. It is cooling and refreshing and it helps to leave your skin feeling just that way.
