After spending the day basking in the sun, whether relaxing at the beach or swimming laps at the pool, your skin will be craving some tender loving care. While sunscreen is your best friend for protection during sun exposure, after sun body oil is the unsung hero for post-sun skin rejuvenation. But why is it so important you might be asking? We’re going to share a few of those reasons below as well as a DIY After-Sun Body Oil Recipe! Let's dive into the benefits and reasons you should make this nourishing oil a staple in your skincare routine.

  1. Soothe and Heal Sunburned Skin
    Sunburns can leave your skin red, irritated, and painful. This after-sun body oil is infused with ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Lavender, and Frankincense oil, known for their anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. Peppermint Oil will help cool things down. Applying an after-sun body oil helps to calm the skin, reducing redness and discomfort, and promotes faster healing of sunburned areas.
  1. Deep Hydration
    Sun exposure can deplete your skin’s moisture levels, leading to dryness and peeling. Since this DIY has Jojoba Oil in it, it will replenish lost hydration and lock in moisture. This not only helps to prevent peeling but also leaves your skin feeling soft, supple, and rejuvenated.
  1. Anti-Aging Benefits
    Prolonged exposure to the sun accelerates skin aging, causing fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots. This after-sun body oil contains ingredients that can help to repair damaged skin cells, prevent further premature aging, and improve skin elasticity. 
  1. Enhance Your Tan
    If you’re looking to maintain a beautiful, even tan, after-sun body oil can be your best ally. The hydrating properties of the oil help to keep your skin moisturized, ensuring that your tan fades evenly and lasts longer. Plus, Jojoba Oil will give your skin a radiant glow.

After-Sun Body Oil ensures your skin remains healthy, hydrated, and radiant after sun exposure, allowing you to enjoy the sun safely and beautifully. So, next time you head outdoors, don’t forget to pack your sunscreen and your after sun body oil – your skin will thank you for it!

  3. Once everything is well combined, carefully pour the mixture into your empty glass bottle and cap with the pump closure.
