Natural protection without sunscreen
While we usually suggest letting your skin get good sunlight to provide your body with lots of vitamin D, we don’t forgive the sunset until you burn. In the past, people knew how to avoid too much sunlight by following a few simple bright day guidelines:
- Avoid being outside in the middle of the day when the sun is the hottest
- Look for shade under trees, umbrellas, etc., if you are outside during sunset needed
- Wear a big-braughing hat
- Wear light, loose clothes to cover open skin
However, we understand there are times when you won’t be able to cover or get out of the sun and may need to use sunscreen. But the commercial sunscreen has become a hot topic lately, guilty of containing harsh chemicals and becomes counterproductive in maintaining healthy skin.
Natural sun protection material
Vitamin E oil – Maintain and moisturize the skin, and help maintain a natural homemade sunscreen
Zinc oxide (non-nano) – bleak venom of a non-toxic spectrum, usually not annoying. The particles of their particles sit in the outermost layer of your skin, scattering and absorbing UVA and UVB rays, protect the skin below.
Zinc oxide (ZnO), provides a true broad spectrum protection against UVA wavelengths> 360 nm. 
Be sure to use non-nano zinc oxide to produce a natural homemade sunscreen. We buy
Nano or zinc oxide micronization has been treated to reduce the size of its particles, create ultrafine powder. When added to sunscreen, it did not leave the white film on the skin, making it a popular choice in many commercial sunscreens. The problem with this is that the particles are very small so they can enter the body through the skin, cause potential health problems.
Choose your homemade SPF Surcreen
The number of different zinc oxides is needed depending on the SPF what you want from your DIY sunscreen. After you choose SPF, a little math is involved. Zinc Oxide must be a certain percentage of the weight of your ingredients (before adding zinc oxide). For this reason, it is easiest to use the kitchen scale when making your sunscreens. For example, if you have 2 ounces of lotion and you want to make SPF 10 sunscreen, according to the values below you need to add .2 Os oxide zinc into the lotion. Use the recommendation of zinc oxide below.
• 2-5 SPF: Use 5% zinc oxide
• 6-11 SPF: Use 10% zinc oxide
• 12-19 SPF: Use 15% zinc oxide
•> 20 SPF: Use 20% zinc oxide
