  • 8 NATURAL HOMEMADE SUNSCREEN | Do you know that most over the counter sunscreen can do more harm to our bodies than the sun itself?

  • Formulating a good sunscreen requires some serious know chemistry, but we know that nature has some good alternatives to offer. If you are not going to the beach to spend the entire day there, you don’t need ultra-strong protection.

  • You might as well make your own sunscreen, using all natural ingredients that are good for your skin and for your body.

Mix all ingredients in a container with a tap (use a mask when adding the zinc oxide, to avoid inhaling it). Shake the mixture for a few minutes, in order to homogenize it well.

  • Since determining the SPF of a product is not done by summing up the SPF of all individual ingredients used in the formulation, it would be wrong if I told you this lotion will have, let's say, SPF 35 . Apart from that, the SPF natural oils have can vary,  (example: Carrot Seed Oil’s SPF is 35-40).

  • Though vitamin E doesn’t have SPF, it is a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin E improves skin’s elasticity + firmness + supports new cell growth. Last but not least, it acts as natural preservative i.e. your lotion will be good for use for at least 4 months.
