After Sun Care
After your skin has been exposed to the sun be it in a teeny bikini or in short shorts like Rihanna, bring calm to bothered skin with after sun care products from Phytoplage, Sun Bum and Clinique.
A Multi-Purpose Solution
Treat your skin to multi-purpose ‘Phytoplage’ Sublime After Sun Hair & Body Oil ($40, nordstrom.com) after a day of enjoying sunny rays. Phytoplage is a yummy blend of unique botanical blend of perilla, buriti, annatto and camellia oils that revitalizes, nourishes, hydrates and restores radiance to your hair and skin. I personally use this body oil on my body after I bathe… my skin feels moisturized and smells wonderful. However, if your someone who likes a less fragrant solution this oil may not be for you.
Calm Prickly Skin
To get rid of that prickly, burning sensation your skin feels once you’ve come in out of the sun, try 100% vegan Sun Bum Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Gel ($9.99, trustthebum.com), which quickly eases the pain because it’s enriched with Vitamin E, soothing Aloe Gel, and Tea Tree Oil, ingredients that help cool, rehydrate and help prevent peeling. For added cooling effect, store it in the fridge.
Also consider as part of your after sun care skin care regimen, oil-free Clinique After Sun Rescue Balm with Aloe ($23, clinique.com) to calm sun-baked skin. This post sun repair moisturizing balm, which is okay to apply to your face and body helps prevent visible signs of sun damage and minimizes peeling.
Whatever you do, remember that summer is more than just sunscreen, so include after sun care products in your summer skin care regimen to rejuvenate your skin’s natural moisture balance.
