Although I would like to say that I never forget sunscreen, the truth is I often either forget or don’t reapply as I should, leaving our family with dry, burnt skin. Not only is our skin fair, but it is sensitive too, so I have to be careful what I put on to moisturize afterwards or I end up with a screaming Elijah telling me his skin is stinging. So a nice light product I use a lot in the summer is jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is very similar to the oil produced by our own skin, so it is very gentle and natural. You can use a few drops in your normal lotion/moisturizer (safe enough for skin on your face) or use it straight out of the bottle. It can also be used as a hair conditioner, shaving oil or make-up remover.
It can be sort of expensive to buy, especially if you want organic. The best price I have ever found it is from Acne.org, which is a site for those who suffer with acne, but sell products at wholesale prices. You can get 8 ounces of organic jojoba oil for only $14.75, which is really cheap in comparison to other products on the market.
If you are looking for a good moisturizer for that sun drenched skin and hair, think about giving jojoba oil a try.
