Too much sun can happen to even the most devoted sunscreen user. What seems like 10 minutes in the sun can actually be 60 – it’s hard to keep track when we’re having fun, so applying sunscreen isn’t always done in a timely manner. When the sun goes down and your skin feels a little crispy, try using a body hydrator that’s meant to get your skin back to feeling comfortable and calm.
Skin Drink from Elemental Herbology is a body hydrator that’s heavy on hydration but light in weight. It smells like a dream because of the watermelon seed, cucumber, and grapefruit extracts which repair damaged skin that’s thirsty from too much sun. It’s also meant to be used to extend the life of a tan.
I just used the Repairing After-Sun Balm from Decleor on my husband’s burned-to-the-point-of-blistering shoulders. It took away the itching and calmed the peeling and blistering way down within hours using 100% pure essential oils of rose, lavender, and chamomile (just to name a few) to give the ultimate in skin repair.
La Roche Posay’s Posthelios is what they call a melt-in gel designed for ultra dry skin that’s been beaten up by the sun. Shea Butter, Bisabolol, and Thermal Spring Water all work together to provide healing and bring down inflammation.
Cocooning Body Lotion from LifeNK harnesses the healing power of Allantoin to take away the sting and irritation of a burn. It’s vanilla, musk, and patchouli are blended into a rich vegetable base of shea butter and almond oil to cocoon your skin in absolute moisture.
