time it can really damage your skin
Since summer is fun in the sun time, don't make the skin suffer by overdoing it in the sun. Sunburn is painful and over time it can really damage your skin. If you have suffered a small sunburn on your body, you might consider using lavender or tea tree oils neat from the bottle on the burn. If your body is pretty much crispy fried, you might consider using an unscented lotion with a few drops of lavender, chamomile or tea tree and gently dab it on the burned area. Later, use calendula oil with a few drops of rose or chamomile, neroli or lavender to help the burn to heal.
If making your own concoctions sounds too difficult, just take a few drops of your favorite scent and put it in your bath water. Make sure it is one of the relaxing oils if you are taking a bath before you go to bed. For relaxation use: lavender, clary sage, marjoram sweet, rose otto, neroli, palmarosa, patchouli, rose, vanilla, ylang ylang, vetiver, jasmine, bergamot or any of the camomiles. If you want to wake up before you go to work, use one of the stimulating scents: basil, cypress, juniper berry, lemon, lemongrass, myrrh, orange, peppermint, rosemary, tea tree, geranium, ginger, fennel, grapefruit, lime, thyme. If you want to fall asleep to your favorite scent, put a few drops on a cloth and place it by your pillow. Don't put it on the pillowcase itself because it might stain. Lavender is especially good for sleeping. If you choose to try scents for relaxing or for stimulation, make sure you buy the real deal. Read labels carefully because many companies have tried to get on the alternative, natural bandwagon and list their products as "all Natural" when they really aren't. Make sure the essential oils you are buying are 100% pure extract of the plant. Synthetic products have little to no effect on your senses and you won't achieve the desired results.
Aging is inevitable, but a healthy lifestyle combined with some fragrances can help you slow the signs of time from your skin.
