Summer Heat.. Make Your Own Sunscreen!

I’ll be lounging off to a beach this week during this “Holy Week” holiday and I know the summer heat can be burning to the skin. Better to be prepared in advance. I do understand that the sun is a great source of Vitamin D but a sunburn is as uncomfortable as it can be. I shall say, I’m already  boosting my own SPF with proper supplementation such as Vitamin C, Coco Oil and other anti-oxidants such as Glutathione with Green Tea Extract and Grapeseed Extract.

You can opt to buy a ready-made natural suncreen on a healthy natural shop or create your own. Check out these links:

Ingredients that Naturally Protect Us from the Sun

There are natural ingredients, some may be found in our kitchens, that work to protect us from over exposure to the sun. Many are oils that contain SPF properties such as:

  • Raspberry Seed Oil. The highest of all natural ingredients, contains an estimated SPF of 30-50.
  • Shea Butter. An excellent skin protectant with an SPF of approximately 6-10.
  • Carrot Seed Oil. Carrot seed oil is an essential oil and has been estimated to contain SPF levels of 30.
  • Wheat Germ Oil. While super nourishing for the skin, it too possesses a natural SPF of 20.
  • Sesame oil, Coconut Oil, Hemp oil, Avocado oil, Soybean, and Peanut Oil. All contain SPF levels between 4-10.

I’m happy with my daily application of Coconut Oil!

Go ahead and enjoy the sun!
