How to Make Your Own Sunscreen

Using sunscreen may not be a bad idea, but some commercial sunscreens contain ingredients that actually increase the risk of skin cancer.  You can avoid that risk by making your own, says Alex Du Toit.
Many commercial sunscreens contain toxic ingredients that actually raise the risk of skin cancer. However, natural sunscreen can get very pricey, especially if you have a large family. Here is a sunscreen that you can make at home and is nontoxic and all natural. While you are blocking the harmful rays of the sun, your skin is getting nourished with all of the wonderful natural ingredients. Your skin will look and feel better than before you started using it. It is important to allow vitamin D to be produced by the sun and your skin for overall physical and mental well-being. So when you know that you are going in the sun for a long time, lather this all-natural sunscreen all over your body! Also, you can add essential oils to this recipe that will protect against insects. Remember to lather after spending time in water! This sunscreen has not been tested for SPF, but it is about 24-30.
