Most products for sun protection are harmful to our health. Even though these creams should protect us from the harmful UV radiation, the chemical that is contained in most of them affects our endocrine composition, encourages the creation of free radicals and contains carcinogenic properties.
What is concerning is the fact that the more you use sunscreen the risk of skin cancer is greater.
Applying sunscreen with high protecting factor blocks the creation of vitamin D and without this vitamin human organism weakens.
This is why, in this article we are about to present a recipe for a natural sunscreen or lotion with SPF 20 that smells wonderful and naturally moistens the skin.
– ½ a cup of organism almond or olive oil (cca 1 dl)
– ¼ of a cup of organic coconut oil, which naturally possesses protective factor 3 (cca half a dl)
– ¼ of a cup of beeswax (cca 1 tablespoon) – if you cannot get this ingredient, you can left it our because it is needed only for density
– 2 tablespoons of zinc oxide (contains natural SPF 20 +, depending on how much you will put in the recipe, has anti inflammatory properties and antifungal properties as well)
Method of preparation:
Add al abovementioned ingredients in a glass jar, except the zinc oxide and the essential oil. The more beeswax you add, the thicker the resulting mixture will be.
Put water in a midsized bowl and put it on low fire. Cover the jar with ingredients and place it in the warmed bowl of water. Soon enough, the ingredients in the jar should start melting. Once they are melted get the jar out of the water and very carefully add the zinc oxide. Mix everything well and finally put the essential oil in the mixture.
Mix several times until the mixture completely cools in order to make sure the zinc oxide is completely dissolved in the mixture.
This sunscreen is not waterproof, which means you will need to apply it once again after you get out of the water.
Keep the sunscreen in a dry and cool place or in the refrigerator. If you want greater protective factor all you need to do is add more zinc oxide.
