Who doesn’t enjoy basking in the sun and soaking up those sweet rays? Unfortunately, it’s very easy to underestimate the sun’s strength (especially when it’s hidden by clouds), which often results in sunburnt skin. You may be familiar with the importance of following the appropriate sun care steps and making sure to not only apply SPF in the morning, but to continue reapplying at regular intervals throughout the day. Check out our range of sun creams and sunscreens here. That said, even after practising safe sun care, there is still a chance of sunburn, which can be extremely uncomfortable and sore. When UV light encounters your skin in excess, this can quickly result in sunburn; this is when after sun care comes to rescue you from further sun damage.
After sun creams don't just provide that much needed heat and sensitivity relief but can effectively help restore moisturise to your skin after being exposed to the sun all day. Some after sun lotions can even help extend your tan, resulting in you benefitting from that glow for longer. After sun lotions work by replenishing the lost moisture from your skin after being exposed to the sun and therefore helps aid against to prevent skin peeling.
As previously mentioned, to help avoid the negative effects caused by radiation from the sun, you should still always protect yourself with the correct SPF and make sure to always re-apply throughout the day. After sun creams should be applied every day after sun exposure, usually after a shower, to help lock in moisture more effectively. After sun comes in many forms including sprays, creams, gels and lotions.
A more natural answer to after sun care is aloe vera. Aloe vera after sun comes from the aloe vera plant (Aloe barbadensis miller), which is a fleshy succulent filled with cooling gel. This gel can be applied directly to the sunburnt area or mixed with lotions and gels, making it a more natural after sun care solution. Aloe vera is known for its soothing and calming properties on the skin. Shop our wide range of aloe vera after sun and after sun lotions today to keep that dreaded sunburn at bay.
