I think we can all agree that it’s pretty important to protect your skin from excessive UV exposure. As much as I enjoy soaking up the sunshine on a nice summer day, I would also like to avoid developing skin cancer after all. And considering the fact that there’s mounting evidence that most store bought sunscreens contain some pretty harmful ingredients, I’ve recently started to look into more natural options such as this DIY mask. The secret to this mask is to use a carefully selected mixture of ingredients such as almond oil, zinc oxide, carrot seed oil, shea butter, and bee wax flakes. All of these ingredients work in tandem to protect your skin from harmful UV exposure without all of the potentially harmful side effects. Now that’s what I call a win-win for your skin.
