After Sun Spray

Yesterday, Bryan came in from working outside and had a pretty intense tank top outline on his body and his shoulders were bright red.  I hope that at this point, he knows that sunblock is routine but, dudes are dudes and don't take the same precautions that women do to protect their skin.  I decided that since this isn't our first time nursing burnt skin and I know it will happen again, I should make something to apply in case anyone in our family forgets to apply before going outside.  I made this easy after-sun-spray with some ingredients I had on-hand.  It's going in my beach bag along with my favorite sunscreen to soothe our summer skin this season.
