Best Bet: Sun Saver


After the on-again, off-again bouts of rain, we admit we’ve been a little overzealous about soaking up sun when a rare clear, blue-sky weekend comes along. Unfortunately, long afternoons spent lounging on the roof or in the park have left us with a Monday burn more than once. Beekman 1802’s After-the-Sun soap soothes scorched skin with natural healing ingredients like goat’s milk, green-tea extract, olive oil, lavender, and aloe vera. They’re free of chemicals and artificial fragrances, which can irritate and dry out your already-tender skin. And each box comes packed with ten mini-bars, so it’s easy to throw one in your beach tote or travel bag for sunny weekends away.

$14.95 for ten bars at Green Depot or online.
