5 After-Sun Care Products To Save Your Skin This Summer
Sunscreen, shades and swimwear are essentials everyone remembers to pack for a day at the beach. But we’d like to make a strong case for adding another item to your checklist: an after-suncare product.
Most of the time, after-sun care products, which comes in sprays, creams, gels, lotions and milks, are neglected when you pack our beach essentials. Sure, protecting your skin before sun exposure is important, but, you should also take note that post-sun treatment is a very important part of the summer skincare process. It avoids post-swim dryness, stops ugly peeling, and prolongs your tan; but most of all, it soothes and heals the skin that got a little too much sun.
Good for both kids and adults, after-sun products are best applied after a bath or shower (once you’ve rinsed off the sun screen and salt water). For a lowdown of the best after-sun care products in the market, here's a list that we've put together for your next shopping trip! You're welcome!
