Summer Beauty: Aftersun Care

 So now I’ve covered SPF for the face and body, let’s talk about what to
use after exposure to the sun, in other words, this is known as after
sun care, simples. For me, having a nice, long shower after a long day
in the heat is the best part, it also makes me happy when I start seeing
that golden glow I’ve developed along the way.

Nivea In-Shower Refreshing After Sun Lotion £8.00 (*)

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense via Click Fragrance £29.60 (*)

Dermalogica After-Sun Repair £29.90 (*)


There’s no better way to cool off and soothe your skin, than a lovely, creamy lotion. This one from Nivea follows on from it’s famous in-shower conditioner, but with a refreshing and cooling effect. It is applied on wet skin straight after the shower and absorbs instantly leaving no residue on towels or clothing. Your skin is soothed and hydrated with a subtle scent. 


If you have burnt yourself *naughty, naughty* then you may want opt for the Dermalogica After-Sun Repair. It is a soothing treatment balm that repairs damage caused by exposure to UV rays helping to soothe sunburnt skin and reduce discomfort. Free from fragrance and colour means it’s extremely gentle and cooling on the skin.


Not forgetting the face, Clinique‘s Moisture Surge Intense will restore hydration and keep your skin plumped for up to twenty-four hours. Thanks to it’s cream-gel formula, even the most oiliest of skins can benefit from this moisturiser as it gives a lovely, matte finish whilst still locking in moisture.
