Sun Repair Formula for Skin

Sun Repair Formula for Skin

If you want to repair the damage done to your skin by the sun–or help to protect it from further damage–this formula may do the trick. Sun exposure has been linked to sunburn, dry skin, flaky skin and premature aging, but this oil-and-botanical recipe can nourish your skin and keep it soft, moist and young-looking.

See the simple formula for soothed, soft skin here:

The nutrients in each oil feed the skin externally and internally. Use equal amounts of all the ingredients, shake well and store in a cool place.

Apricot Kernel Oil is nutrient rich and nourishes the skin in depth without leaving an oily feeling. It contains essential fatty acids, mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and Vitamin E. The combination is very effective to keep your skin moist and supple.

Carrot Seed Oil has many properties. In this particular recipe the vitamin A will help keep the skin tan and firm.

Jojoba Oil has a composition very close to the sebum of the skin. It is an excellent external moisturizer, helps prevent dryness, and rejuvenates the skin through new cell growth.

Calendula Flowers infused in Jojoba oil will help to prevent sunburn, and are healing while being gentle to the skin. (To infuse the flowers, add them to jojoba oil in a crock pot and heat on low heat for eight hours, then strain and use the oil.)
