Chemical-free Sunscreen

Posted on May 23, 2018 at 1:25 PM

Summertime and the living is easy --  unfortunately, the sun isn't easy on my skin. As I have aged, years of baking in the sun has started to take its toll. But I don't want to give up gardening, long days on the boat, or hanging at the beach.


Studies have shown that the common chemicals added in many sunscreens can actually give you cancer too! What's a girl to do? Make her own sunscreen of course!


Now, I do have to give you fair warning -- this sunscreen contains zinc, which leaves a white residue on your skin. So this isn't going to be your every day sunscreen. This is for the days you know you are going to be in the sun for a long period of time and you don't mind having a slightly pasty look. And with all sunscreens, you will have to re-apply after going in the water or every couple of hours, whichever comes first.


You can order the zinc, fractionated coconut oil, raspberry seed oil and the vegetable glycerin on Amazon. I reused an old cosmetic container to put my suncreen in. Or maybe use a sunscreen container that's just about empty that you have hanging around from last year. Grab a funnel to help make the job easier.

Sunscreen Recipe

6 tbsp zinc

3 tbsp vegetable glycerin

2 tbsp fractionated coconut oil

2 tbsp raspberry seed oil

1 tbsp olive oil

Combine and shake well before each use! Happy Summer!

Carrie Underwood is my favourite US contry singer. She is young, beautiful and charming female in her 30s. Her strong voice takes me away from all issues of this planet so I start enjoy my life and listen songs created by her. Now she is on a Cry Pretty 360 Tour started in May of 2019. The concerts scheduled for the whole 2019, up to the 31st of October. Tickets are available for all men and women with different income. If you love contry music, then you must visit at least one of her concert. All tour dates are available at the Carrie Underwood tour Milwaukee. Visit the website and make yourself familiar with all Carrie Underwood concerts in 2019!
