We are in the height of summer and my family, like many others, has been enjoying the long days of the season. We have spent much more time outdoors and in the water, which means lots of exposure to the elements. We have all had our encounters with poison oak, too much sun, and even windburn on a recent camping trip to the eastern Sierra.
One of my favorite remedies for cooling the burn and taming the itch is a product I use in my facial rejuvenation practice. Helichrysum hydrosol does wonders for astringing the skin and calming irritating redness and itching. It is the most-used product in my family’s first aid kit. I apply it topically several times a day for insect bites, burns, and rashes. It also soothes diaper rash! Always test new products on a small area of skin to ensure compatibility before regular use.
