DIY Sunscreen That’s Actually Safer
Summer is around the corner, we all know what that means! Getting that perfect summer body. But what’s the use of it when the scorching sun is going to give you your worst burns? Plus, sunscreens you pick off the store aren’t exactly effective. Sometimes pharmaceutical companies do some pretty shady stuff. But fear not! For we have the solution to it all. Say hello to a 100% safe DIY sunscreen recipe that actually costs less and works more.
1 Gather your ingredients
You’ll find some of it in your kitchen cupboards while for others; you simply need to visit your nearest store. What you’ll need is beeswax, olive and coconut oils, essential oils, vanilla extract, and powdered zinc oxide.
2 Mix up the ingredients
Firstly, place a medium-sized saucepan on the heat and fill it with water. Take a jar with a lid, and mix all your ingredients except for zinc oxide in it and shut the lid lightly. Add to the water in the saucepan and keep stirring after every little while to make sure that all the ingredients melt properly.
3 Add the zinc oxide
Once all the ingredients have melted, add zinc oxide to the jar slowly and keep stirring well to avoid any lumps.
4 Pour out
Once it’s done, add the mixture to whatever containers you wish to store it in.
5 Store it!
You need to store this DIY sunscreen at room temperature to be able to use whenever needed.
