This is a guest post by Jen Fitch of A Sip of Bliss.

Summer is definitely in full swing, and in Austin it is HOT! I have been spending a lot of time by the pool lately and with all of the sun exposure, my skin has been needing a refresher. I decided to whip up a DIY after sun spray with the amazing skin benefits of green tea. Green tea is wonderful for your skin, both when you drink it or apply it topically.

The spray gets extra healing properties with witch hazel and aloe vera. Read more…
