Make Your Own Sunscreen

Most of the sunscreen you buy in the store is really not healthy for you.  Someone said you should not put something on your skin you would not put in your mouth.  I have even giving up wearing foundation make-up on my face & just use Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil.  I also use it all over on my skin when not using Apricot Oil.  Coconut Oil is the basis for this natural sunscreen oil.

Natural Sunscreen

3 T shea butter

6 T  coconut oil

2 T zinc oxide.

Mix together & apply a small amount before spending time in the sun.  It’s really good for your skin.  I get the coconut oil at Nutiva—GREAT for cooking, also.  I get the shea butter and zinc oxide (a powder) at Amazon.
