This time of year I hear the same things over and over again. “Forgot the sunscreen and now I’m a lobster.” “Spent the entire day at the beach and I’m completely sunburned.” “Ow, this sunburn hurts!”
I’m the type of person that burns easily. No matter what sunscreen I use, I burn. And it hurts. I’ve tried many remedies and soothers over time and only one has worked every single time I use it, Burt’s Bees After Sun Soother. It contains not only aloe, but linden flower as a key ingredient as well.
We all know the healing properties of aloe. Aloe has been used for years to relieve pain of burns, insect bites, wounds and other ailments. My Grandma always had an aloe plant around and the minute you mentioned a bug bite, she was breaking off a piece and handing it to you. Like her, I have an aloe plant growing in the kitchen. I’m starting to think I might need to grow another one!
What makes Burt’s Bees After Sun Soother really work is the Linden Flower. Linden Flowers come from the Linden tree. The active ingredients in the flowers include flavonoids, which act as antioxidants, and mucilaginous constituents, which soothe and reduce inflammation. This is exactly what your inflamed and irritated skin needs in order to heal.
With these two key ingredients, the skin heals quickly, the pain is bearable and the skin peeling is minimal. Next time you plan to hit the beach or amusement park, or spend the day outside, pick up some After Sun Soother before you head out. Use it after a cool shower and reapply throughout the night. By morning, you’ll feel like you weren’t burned at all.
