Warmer weekends mean that we’re all digging deep in to our drawers to pull out the bikinis and board shorts that have been in hibernation. But with the season of beach visits and barbeques soon upon us, we also have to keep in mind that the Aussie sun is growing stronger.
Let’s face it, even the most diligent sun safety devotees among us have been guilty of getting a little too much sun at times. And then paid the price with a wallop of sunburn! But luckily there’s a natural way to relieve the burn and improve skin healing should you overstay your welcome in the sun!
Aloe vera products are everywhere – in sprays, gels, and creams – but in my opinion nothing beats fresh aloe. However, it can even be improved upon with the addition of a few key herbs. I make these healing ice blocks up in advance and keep them in the freezer. That way I have them handy if someone needs something soothing and cooling to apply to their skin after an extra-long arvo on the sand!
