I wanted to share some DIYs for healthy sunscreen and bug repellant.
Personally, I get my sun while I’m swimming in the lakes of Michigan. I like to create shade on the beach so that I don’t get burned. When I’m on my motorcycle, I really only carry a sheet and a small jar of my homemade sunscreen. I like to gather sticks and rocks on the shore and “create my shade”!
I use sunscreen when I ride, it also keeps my face moisturized from the drying winds.
See below for a healthy sunscreen recipe and bug spray.
Summer blasts by before you know it. Take care of yourself and enjoy your ride!
