UV rays cause the skin to age and wrinkle prematurely. But hey, you can’t sit indoors all summer long. The warm sunshine beckons. A day or several days at the beach are what summers are all about. Sleeveless tops and sandals are the fashion statements of the season.
Unfortunately, all of these mean over-exposure to the sun.
Applying sunscreen before stepping out is one way to enjoy the benefits of sunlight while keeping your skin protected from its adverse effects.
Myrrh and helichrysum are two essential oils that provide natural sun protection; of those oils.
Combine these two skin-happy oils in a sunscreen blend that’s easy to toss together, smells fantastic, and provides your skin with the benefit of innumerable skin strengthening properties.
