Keys to taking care of your skin after being in the sun

After a few tanning sessions and getting some vitamin D in the sun, your skin is often damaged and needs an extra boost of hydration as well as care. We all love to get a tan on vacation, but behind all that color is dehydrated skin, the primary cause of premature aging. In this post, I want to share some foolproof tricks to recovering some glow and extending that golden tone. 

Not taking care of your skin in the proper way can cause blemishes, freckles, wrinkles, and in the worst cases, skin cancer. That’s why, after a a day at the beach or pool, taking care of your skin is essential both to preserving your tan and preventing premature aging. Here are some tips on how to keep your skin radiant after exposing to the sun’s rays.

So, how to hydrate the skin after the sun? The best way is top use an aftersun cream since this calms, repairs, and rehydrates the skin and even protects it from further exposure. Many of these products are made from aloe vera, which contains natural polysaccharide. After applying the aftersun treatment, you can continue with your regular skincare routine.

Another great trick for glowing, healthy skin is to use a hyaluronic acid mask, which counteracts an aftersun effect. You can apply it to your face and leave it on overnight. This will combat free radicals in the skin. You can also replace your night cream with this type of mask. And, don’t forget to take care of your scalp. You can use an ampoules at the end of the day or leave-in hydrating treatments for an added boost. Use a thick bristle comb to distribute the product through your hair, and you’ll see the difference the morning after washing it.

To protect your tan and be able to show it off for a few more days after returning from vacation, hydration is key. A tan only exists in the upper layers of the skin, so to prolong it, you have to protect your skin from peeling and drying out. Use an aftersun treatment not only during your days at the beach, but also after returning home. Add a good moisturizer or oil to your routine, too. Choose products that contain ingredients like inositol and tyrosine. Enjoy your vacation while taking care of your skin and keeping it healthy and radiant.
