Sun Protection with DIY After Sun Lotion



Summer is almost here. Like everyone else, I will also be planning to go on a holiday. And this holiday will be all about sun, sea and beach.


I want to have that amazing bronze skin. But while doing that, I don’t want to use those commercial products. Instead, I will use an amazing DIY after sun lotion for this summer.

Those sun lotions on the market have harmful ingredients for our skin. When we try to have that health sunburn, we might experience other problems if we use those products. So, like I did in many other cases, I decided to try making my own after sun lotion.

This amazing gel will sooth your skin. So, as we learned the benefits, let’s start making our DIY after sun lotion.

DIY After Sun Lotion Preparation


  • 1 tablespoon of Cocoa Butter
  • 1 tablespoon of raw Coconut Oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Aloe Vera Gel
  • ½ teas spoon of Vitamin E Oil – or you can use one Vitamin E capsule
  • 5 drops of essential lavender oil


  1. First, you need to heat cocoa butter and coconut oil in a small pot. This way, you will melt these two oils.
  2. Wait for couple of minutes until the mixture is cool.
  3. Add aloe vera, vitamin E oil and essential lavender oil into this mixture. Combine all ingredients.
  4. When you mix everything, your DIY after sun lotion is ready. Transfer it into a pump bottle. You can either buy a new empty pump bottle or use one of the old bottles that is empty.

How to Use DIY After Sun Lotion

When you want to use this sun lotion, all you need to do is spray it to your body. You can use this amazing DIY after sun lotion on your shoulders, body and even on your face.

But you need to be careful if you want to use it on your face. Try to avoid your eyes and around your mouth. This lotion is ideal for after sun. Ingredients in this amazing recipe will sooth your skin after sun.

This sun lotion will give you that perfect bronze skin in the summer. But always use a sun lotion with SPF if you will spend the entire day outside. Also, never forget to use hat and sunglasses to avoid sun burn.
