When you think of sun care, what comes to mind? Preventative measures like sunscreen? Sunburn remedies like aloe vera, oatmeal baths, or sunburn lotions?
There’s a step in between that can be extremely beneficial for the overall health of your skin that doesn’t get nearly enough attention as it deserves...hydrating and moisturizing!
Sunburn or not, our skin can easily lose its natural oils after being exposed to UVA and UVB rays for long periods. However, things like excessively sweating, cooler temperatures, and the soaps or detergents we use can also contribute to skin drying out. The best way to replenish that dewy glow is by incorporating a daily moisturizer into your sun care routine.
You might be thinking, “aren’t hydrating and moisturizing the same thing?” Think of the two terms as teammates. A hydrating product increases the amount of water being absorbed into the skin, while a moisturizing product traps in hydration and leaves your skin silky smooth. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and aloe provide hydration and offer benefits like healing acne scars or wounds, brightening, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. On the other hand, jojoba oil, shea butter, and coconut oil offer moisture and have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, have high antioxidant levels, and can soothe irritated skin.
Now we don’t mean to toot our own horn or anything….toot toot…. but we’ve carefully curated those exact ingredients that simultaneously restore the balance of the skin in our after sun daily moisturizer. With the ingredients we mentioned above we were able to create a post-sun restoration cream that acts as both a body moisturizer as well as a face moisturizer. This post-sun cream is gentle enough to apply to your face but powerful enough to give the rest of your sun kissed skin the refresh it needs.
But don’t take our word for it, go try it out for yourself!
