Why aftersun skincare is so essential, plus the products to soothe skin
After a day outdoors it's essential that you apply post-sun skincare, regardless of whether you caught the sun or not
We’ve all been there; You lie out in the sun for a little too long (probably because you dozed off), or didn’t apply enough sun protection and wake up to find you’ve gone slightly pink. Enter, aftersun.
Redness is not a great look but, more importantly, it’sdefinitelynot great for your skin.
Don’t panic; fortunately there are various lotions, mousses, creams and gels out there to soothe the burn, prevent peeling and rehydrate your skin if you forgot to take your best sun cream out with you.
Aftersun formulas are packed with hydrating ingredients like aloe vera, vitamin E, shea butter, almond oil and Omegas 3 and 6 to boost skin’s moisture levels, while some contain subtle enhancers to enrich your tan.
Keep in mind that speed is the key to cooling the skin – don’t wait until you start to feel itchy or overheated. Instead, apply your aftersun as soon as you’re back indoors or in the shade.
