Desitin as a sunscreen

As I was laying at the beach today I couldn’t help but over hear some news about sunscreen.  The lifeguards on the OBX beaches use Desitin Diaper Rash Cream.  It is zinc, which is the same ingredient in expensive sun block lotions!  Soooo, that got me wondering about it.  I have found several home made recipes for suntan lotions, but the best and quickest is to get your favorite lotion and add a few tablespoons of desitin to it.  Shake it up and you have a lotions with sunscreen.   I love this idea!!

Don’t forget the sunblock!
