Despite the message being loud and clear that we should always wear UV protection, there are times you inevitably get caught out. As we all know, sunburn is intensely sore, but this cooling spray will help soothe tender areas and speed up the healing process.

A recipe from Clean Beauty Co, founded by Elsie Rutterford and Dominika Minarovic, all the ingredients are natural for a non-toxic and harmless result. Aloe is age-old skin healer due to its powerful antioxidant qualities and its ability to calm inflamed and angry skin. Combined with peppermint hydrosol, for an instant cooling fix, as well as chamomile hydrosol to reduce redness, you’ll be feeling the relief in no time. Finally, the addition of glycerine injects some much-needed moisture.
