Stay cool this summer:
Make the most of your trips to the beach, the pool or camping this summer! We’ve collected some innovative recipes for family fun in the sun.
Of course we’re going to start by telling everyone to apply sunscreen. Make sure you put it on 30 minutes before going into the sun. BUT if you don’t put on enough, if you go into the water and don’t reapply, or if you sweat it off and don’t reapply, here is a simple remedy for sunburn. (Also if you have a stubborn teen who thinks they are invincible). Get relief with aloe vera ice cubes. Freeze your aloe vera gel in an ice cube tray for at least an hour. Before you head out, pop the cubes into a ziploc bag and put them in your cooler. If you do happen to get a sunburn, take the aloe cubes out and slide them over your hot skin.
Freeze your juice pouches, add them to your cooler, and when it’s time to cool off, they’ll be defrosted just enough to be slushies. Cut off the top of the pouch and eat with a spoon. Refreshing!
One more soothing and cooling DIY tip for your skin: make a green tea mist in a spray bottle with cold water, a few ice cubes and green tea bags. Put all the ingredients into the bottle and use the potion to mist your skin whenever you get too hot. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties which will keep your skin hydrated and cool. Although it’s not a substitute for sunscreen!
