The sun has been known to provide plenty of protection for us in times of need, but now, there’s a way to get those same benefits with our own homemade sun body ointments.
I’ve been looking for a sun body sunscreen to go with my own oil-soaked sunscreen since I was a kid, but until now, I’ve had to settle for the more expensive options from a makeup line that usually contain petroleum-based ingredients.
But after reading some reviews online, I decided to make my own.
This recipe for homemade sun sunscreen is so easy to make, you’ll need only a little time to make the oil-free sunscreen.
And you can make your own sunscreen too, just by swapping ingredients or substituting ingredients in your own recipes.
Let’s get started!
What you’ll Need Ingredients 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 tablespoon sunflower oil 1 cup water 1 tablespoon essential oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 tablespoon sea salt, or to taste Directions In a bowl, combine the olive oil, sunflower and water.
Add the essential oil and vanilla.
Blend for a minute or so until the mixture becomes thick and creamy.
Taste the mixture and adjust the amount of salt and baking soda you add if needed.
Spread the mixture onto your skin.
Cover with a towel and let it sit for at least 30 minutes before you apply sunscreen.
The oil-soluble ingredients in the sun body protect your skin from harmful UV rays, so you’ll want to be careful when applying sunscreen to your face.
Once you’ve applied sunscreen, wash your face with warm water and pat it off.
You’ll notice the sunscreen has absorbed the sun’s UV rays and protected your skin against UV damage.
This is great news for those of us with sunburns or oily skin, since it will protect your face and reduce inflammation.
If you have skin with pores, you might need to apply sunscreen at the beginning of the day instead of after a shower.
I’ve used this recipe to make homemade sunscreen before, but this time I’m going to show you how to make it yourself.
The recipe includes two ingredients: a baking soda and sea salt mix, and a vanilla extract.
The baking soda is the basic ingredient that makes this recipe easy to mix and store in the refrigerator.
You can also use a little extra baking soda to make a homemade sunscreen that’s more hydrating.
You could also add a little more baking soda, but I found it didn’t make a big difference in the consistency.
You might want to add more baking powder to help the sunscreen adhere better to your skin, and you could also substitute a small amount of sea salt for the baking soda.
If that’s what you’re after, you can substitute a bit of water to make your sunscreen even more hygroscopic.
How to Make Your Own Sunscreen Ingredients 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 tablespoons sunflower seed oil 1 tablespoons sunflowers oil 1/4 cup water, or a little less to taste Directions In a blender, blend the olive and sunflower oils together until very smooth.
Add in the water, essential oil, vanilla extract, baking soda (or sea salt) and salt.
Blend until very thick.
Pour the mixture into a container and store it in the fridge.
You should have about 1 tablespoon of sunscreen left after blending.
How To Use Sunscreen To prevent sunburn, the sun protects your skin by protecting your body from the harmful UV radiation, which can trigger skin cancer and even skin irritation.
To protect your body, sunblock is one of the best ways to protect your eyes, and the oil of the sun provides the best protection.
In fact, studies show that sunblock has helped save more than 1.5 million lives worldwide, and it can even reduce skin cancer rates by up to 20 percent.
But what about those times when you need to use sunscreen?
For that reason, you should be sure to use it before, during and after sun exposure.
Make sure to reapply sunscreen as needed to keep your skin protected.
This can be done by wearing sunscreen on your skin to your sunburn spots, and reapplying it as needed.
It’s also helpful to reapplying sunscreen when you go outside, since the sun will protect you from harmful particles and rays.
The sun oil can also be applied to your eyes to help protect them from harmful light pollution.
You just need to be aware that sunscreen contains a number of chemical ingredients, and as with any product, it’s best to get a skin doctor’s advice before using any of these ingredients.
Sunscreen is one part of your skin care routine that may benefit you or your family, so make sure you know how to use this product correctly.
