DIY Beauty Products from The Sarah Johnson

DIY Lavender Sunscreen

The Sarah Johnson

I’m quirky about my daily products’ ingredients–especially if they contain chemicals. I check everything I use at EWG’S Skin Deep Guide to Cosmetics, a site that rates safety of 80,000 personal care products. I try to keep it natural for the most part. And I try to use as few products as possible. I’m drawn to earthy/botanical-based products, or I DIY as many products as I can–because then I really know what ingredients I’m working with. (Did you see my DIY de-puffing caffeine eye cream post?)

Enter zinc oxide, the miracle main ingredient for DIY sunscreen.  It’s is a fine white powder with astringent properties that physically (not chemically!!) works to provide 28 times the skin’s natural protections against harmful UVA & UVB rays. It’s the sunscreen of sunscreens people. Don’t believe me? Check out the reviews.

Say what? So are you ready for this DIY or what?
