3 All-Natural Recipes for Skincare in the Sun

Here are 3 all-natural recipes for skincare in the sun that are easy DIY projects that I hope you’ll come to love as much as I do!

While avoiding the sun during the hottest times of day and wearing protective clothing, especially wide-brimmed hats, are the BEST ways to care for your skin during the heat of summer…these all-natural recipes will each help you and YOUR skin in different ways.

You can make SUN PUNCH to help the skin protect itself (it tastes great!) before and/or after you go out in the sun. There’s an all-natural SUNBURN SPRAY that I’ve been using for YEARS with my clients – it works like a charm for a sunburn! There’s also a soothing sunburn bath that can provide extra healing support, and help take the sting out of a sunburn and speed healing.

Every client at Take Care Therapeutic Skin & Body Care in Buckhead gets all-natural recommendations like these, custom-tailored to them. As a holistic esthetician, my lifelong love of herbalism has informed all the tips & tricks for skincare in the sun – let me know what you think if you try them out.

Enjoy the tips, and share with those you love!

Take care,



Sun punch is easy to make and full of antioxidants that help the skin protect itself.
1 qt. Pomegranate juice (sweet or unsweetened)
1 qt. Strong brewed green tea
Mix together and pour over ice.


Another super easy post-sun care for sunburn. Just take unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar and put some in a small spray bottle. Put the bottle in in refrigerator. Spray the sunburned skin with the cool apple cider vinegar. The spray helps calm the burn down. Then you can dub the burn with aloe gel which also calms the burn and also hydrates the burn and slows peeling. You want to slow the peeling to protect the tissue underneath.


This soothing sunburn bath will help take the sting out of your sunburn and speed healing.
1/3 cup each dried calendula (Calendula officinalis), plantain (Plantago spp.), raspberry leaf (Rubus idaeus) and green tea (Camellia sinensis)
1 quart boiling water
1/2 cup witch hazel extract
1 or 2 drops lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia)
1/2 cup aloe vera gel or juice

Place herbs in a large pot and cover with boiling water, turn down heat and steep for 30 minutes. Strain and save herbs if you like. Wrap the herbs in Muslin cloth or place in a small cotton cloth bag to use to squeeze the tea through the bag over the body. Set the steeped tea aside.

Fill the bathtub with tepid water and add herbal tea to the bath along with the remaining ingredients. Soak in the tea bath for at least 20min or longer using the herbs in the cloth the squeeze the tea over your body. Gently pat dry.
