Burt’s Bees After Sun Soother
This product has been a lifesaver this week. My poor little girl has been burnt to a crisp and this lotion has taken the sting and pain out of the sunburn. It is made with Aloe and Linden Flower. It takes a little work to rub it in, especially if you are rubbing it in gently to a 5 year old's burned arms but it does absorb and leaves the skin a lot cooler. Aloe is the number one agent to reach for when dealing with burns and the Linden extract is a natural antioxidant. When the skin is burned, it is damaged and free radicals are destroying the integrity of the skin. Antioxidants combat the free radicals, hopefully eliminating further damage. The lotion also contains Coconut oil to further moisturize the skin. So all good stuff to heal burned skin. Burt’s Bees is just a wonderful company. Paraban and Phthalate free, 99.5% natural, you can’t go wrong with this stuff. Great to have in the beach bag on vacation.
