“FOLLOW MY SIMPLE, AFTER-SUN SKIN CARE TIPS.”
With summer now upon us, who doesn’t love a little fun in the sun? When the beach beckons and the pool pulls you in, stay smart and protected with all the right practices for a safe time in the sun. The sun can have damaging effects on your skin, which is why we need to do our best to protect it. That being said, despite our best efforts, sometimes we can still get sunburnt. To help replenish and repair sunburnt skin, follow my simple aftersun tips.
1. DRINK UP!
When it comes to your body, Mother Nature knows best! It may sound simple but drink plenty of water, both during your time out in the sun and later on in the evening. It’s not only good for your health but super important when re-hydrating your skin. Give boring tap water a flavor boost to ensure you get your recommended ounces per day. I like to boil fresh mint leaves in the evening and let it cool down overnight in the fridge. It´s so tasty and refreshing on a hot summer’s day and makes me drink more water.
2. COOL OFF
Keep a face mist in your purse so you can mist your face and body while on the beach, pool side or, whilst running around in the city. Visalix Doux gently moisturizes, cools and keeps sun exposed skin calm and relaxed. Redness and irritations are evened out and further prevented. Spray mist several times a day if your skin is in need of hydration.
3. MOISTURIZE ASAP
Salt, chlorine and sun can all dry out your skin, so it needs to be rehydrated as soon as possible. Your skin may have also experienced some natural exfoliation from the sand, especially if it was a windy day. La Capsule Hydratante is hydro-power from the sea, with a specific purpose to reduce inflammatory reactions. Skin immediately feels and looks silky smooth, calm and has a lasting cell protection against free radicals.
4. SMOOTH BODY SKIN
Despite having the best intentions, it’s very easy to miss a spot when applying sunscreen. Tricky places to watch out for include tops of your ears and behind your knees. Innovative specific ingredients from papaya and alage extract in Traitement Corps, regenerates the skin on a cellular level and supplies the body with intensive and long-lasting moisture which therefore, improves the body´s protection against stress factors. The creamy emulsion makes the skin appear firmer, smoother, more even and calm.
Although my skin care tips will help to keep your skin healthy and hydrated throughout summer, it is obviously important to note prevention is always the best care method.
Until next time, Anna!
