Natural and delicious smelling summer skin care post-travel: Burt's Bees

See also

After your summer journeys, no doubt you'll notice that your skin has taken a beating. Between sun, sand, air travel, drying A/C, cheap hotel detergents and a lack of time to care for yourself, you'll want some help pronto. Burt's Bees to the rescue! I was glad to be hosted to experience it.

This is the perfect time of year to try Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub. It's rich and nourishing, but not greasy -- which is something you want to avoid come Summer. Not only does it have the richness of shea, but also ground almonds and soothing aloe. Use it after a day in the sun and certainly before using self-tanner. Try it to enhance manicures and pedicures.

Baby Bee Nourishing Baby Oil is so lightly but deliciously scented, I once tried to get an herbalist to recreate it to incorporate in many beauty products. Impossible! Use this oil in many ways: to nourish dry skin on its own or mixed with your favorite lotion, as a cuticle treatment for fingers and toes, a touch on dry hair ends, as a bath oil, to enhance your tan, etc. With the addition of this light oil in your life, your skin will get healthy looking very quickly.

When you've messed up and gotten too much sun exposure, you'll be glad to have their Aloe & Linden Flower After Sun Soother on hand. It's got a fresh, clean scent and is a nice, thin texture. You want that! You don't want some heavy cream that needs to be rubbed and rubbed and rubbed. It has coconut oil to help re-moisturize your skin.
