DIY After Sun Spray + Skin Care Tips

With the sun still shining brightly in our neck of the woods, we find it an ongoing necessity to keep our sun drenched skin super hydrated and well taken care of. We love to reach for natural products and ingredients to keep our summer bodies happy on the outside as well as the inside. Read on to learn how to make our easy DIY after sun spray and some of our favorite after sun tips from our Amuse team!

DIY After Sun Spray

This simple concoction is made up of just 4 natural ingredients. We believe in the power and benefit of essential oils and love using lavender and peppermint for this skin repairing spray.

After sun

  • 1/2 Cup Witch Hazel
  • 2 Tablespoons Pure Aloe Vera
  • 10 Drops Pure Lavender Essential Oil
  • 2-10 Drops of Pure Peppermint Essential Oil (depending on how sensitive your skin is)

Mix all ingredients together and add to an 8oz spray bottle, or two 4oz spray bottles. A funnel can be used for an easy pour. Avoid using spray around the eye area, so the peppermint doesn't get ya! Spray evenly on body after a day in the sun and relax!

After Sun Tips

"The Oribe Gold Lust Transformative Masque is legit! Great for repairing after summer hair." - Jade

"The Blue Lotus and White Tea Treatment Sheet Mask from Pur-Lisse is great to use post sun." - Andrea

"Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. My favorite is Epicuren Kukui Coconut After Bath Moisturizer. It leaves skin silky and smelling like vacations past :) I always bring the Epicuren Handbag Essential Trio Kit while on vacation. It comes with the moisturizer, face toner, and anti-aging lip balm with SPF - gotta protect your lips from the sun as well!" - Maria

"Having fair skin, I don't spend too much time in the sun but I do use Vitamin E Oil, or Epicuren Aloe Vera Calming Gel. And of course, SPF 70 before and during sun :)" - Angela

"I'm all about coconut oil by itself. I just rub it all over! Sometimes I use the Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Lotion because I love the way it smells." - Crystal

"For my pre-beach prep, I use Sun Bum Salt Spray on my hair to protect color and prevent damage. It smells so good! I also use Sun Bum Clear Zinc on areas that tend to burn/get damaged easily like my shoulders, chest, and nose. I try to pack hydrating snacks like cucumber and watermelon to help skin from the inside out. After the sun, I rinse and then lather up with pure coconut oil." - Sarah

"Prevention is better than correction, so I load up on Sugar's Sport Treatment Sunscreen with SPF 30. It's the best balm I've tried and doesn't melt under the scorching sun. Also, I put a bit of Ouai hair oil before and after I take a dip. It smells amazing too." - Kelly

"After a swim in the ocean, just a tiny bit of Ava's paraben-free hair conditioner makes your hair manageable and silky smooth. You can even spray on before heading into the pool and it protects your hair from chlorine damage." - Mandy

Saturdazed

For the second year in a row, we partnered with Ron Herman (and for the first time, our friends at Vissla!), for our annual event, aptly named “SATURDAZED,” in celebration of the launch of our newest collection. We took over the entire Ron Herman/Fred Segal parking lot, in addition to the Amuse Society section of Ron Herman, for an afternoon filled with good tunes and good times.

Guests lined up at the MYO (Make Your Own) Moët Mimosa Bar to individually garnish their champs, while others hit the other bar, the Top Knot Hair Bar to get their tresses ready for Saturday night. Society babe Brydie Mack (aka @wolfcubwolfcub) had her work on display along with prints from Herewith magazine. Of course it wouldn’t be an Amuse event without our signature custom cookies, this time with our “West Coast Wild Child” graphic imprinted on them. All of this was going down while LA It-band, The Blank Tapes, performed outside the store. Guests left with limited edition West Coast Wild Child totes that were screened on site.

Check out pics from the party and keep an eye out for this new collection, hitting our site next week!
