DIY Waterproof Sunscreen!!!

posted in Skin & Body
  • Ingredients: 
    1/2 cup coconut oil — contains a natural SPF of 10
    1/4 cup sweet almond oil — great for skin elasticity 
    1/4 cup beeswax
    2 Tbsp Shea Butter 
    1 tsp Vitamin E — keeps your lotion from going rancid and is good for your skin 
    2 Tbsp Zinc Oxide powder  — contains a natural SPF of 20 

  • Directions:
    1. In a double boiler, combine everything except the zinc powder
    2. Warm over medium heat until everything is melted, but don’t let it get too hot or the next step will be painful!
    3. Pour into a glass jar, add in the zinc
    4. Put a tight lid on the jar and shake really well (the reason for this step is so you avoid breathing in the zinc powder). Be careful, it can be hot. I wrap a towel around the jar when I shake it!

  • Directions continued: 
    5. Pour into desired containers. I use cute jelly jars, or for at the beach I use refillable silicon tubes
    6. Allow to cool completely before using
    7. Use when out in the sun for prolonged periods of time, reapply as necessary. This stuff lasts, even in the water! Gotta love DIY waterproof sunscreen!
    8. It makes about 1 cup and lasts for quite a while — I have not had it go bad yet. I also store it in the fridge in the winter to keep the oils from going rancid
