So far we've covered, how to read a sunscreen product label and the reasons why you should use eco-friendly sunscreen. We hope you are enjoying this short, but informational series on skin protection. Now for the next part of our summer care series, we are going to discuss how to take care of your skin after intense sun exposure.
Apply Soothing Products
After a long day in the hot sun, sometimes we feel as if we're on fire! Using a cooling, yet hydrating product would help provide a relieving sensation for your skin. We recommend using products containing, you guessed it, aloe vera!
Aloe Vera is also perfect for irritation and aids in rapid skin recovery. Here is a BAZZAAL-approved product that you could use to give your skin the boost it needs.
Introducing this aloe dominant sun gel that is ideal for dry, sensitive, itchy skin aiming to keep any inflammation under control. Packed with over 80% Aloe and Propolis, as well as other naturally derived ingredients, you’re guaranteed a soothing and relieving effect to calm your irritated skin from being out in the sun all day! To use, pump 1-2 times and take the appropriate amount and rub evenly on your face, and then gently tab to enhance the absorption.
It's no secret that after a long day in the sun your skin is thirsting for extra hydration. While grabbing a glass of water, make sure you also pick up a moisturizer packed with hyaluronic acid, vitamin C or vitamin E, and/or collagen. These unique ingredients help with inflammation, reduce free radicals that cause us skin damage, and promote cell repair.
