Forget the sunscreen, not apply enough or nix it all-together thinking you wouldn’t get burned? It happens to the best of us! Yep! Even Sicilian, sun-bathing beauties like me! I know, gasp!
If you’re on a need-to-know basis with anti-aging products, one thing you need to know… is that sun damage is cumulative + irreversible! Meaning, it happens over a long period of time – not just one day of fun in the sun! There’s no need to live like a vampire, but it’s important to use skincare products that are made up of nutrient-rich ingredients that will promote healing, + nourish your skin, before, during + after exposure. Sun damage is the number one cause of premature aging in women, + it’s the one of the only causes of aging that we can control.
Aside from soothing sunburn, many of these products are also good natural first-aid remedies, as well as for relief after Radiation Treatments for Cancer.

* You may notice that I’ve allowed an ingredient or two that I would usually try to avoid. In this case, I feel that these products have better ingredients, with more benefits overall than other comparable natural + non-natural products on the market.
What do you use for natural sunburn relief?

Hello, I lost my mother to breast cancer when she was 46 years old.
I became acutely aware of not only what I was feeding my body but what I was putting on my body. When I had my own kids I decided to make a moisturizing cream pure and natural with very few clean organic ingredients! Siglarr Viking Naturals….only 4 ingredients! ( less than Egyptian Magic). If you are ever interested in reviewing or trying my product please let me know and I would be very happy to send you some samples.
Thank you for your wonderful blog:)
