Soothe the Ache of Sunburn
On a bright, sunny day, you can develop a sunburn quickly and not realize you have until later when that aching feeling sets in and your skin becomes bright red. Those symptoms are caused by inflammation due to the effects of ultraviolet energy, and there are products available to help calm the irritation and give you relief.
Products with aloe vera are frequently recommended by doctors for sunburn relief, as the botanical extract helps to ease inflammation. You can find aloe vera in gels that become rapidly absorbed by the skin and in lotions that contain added moisturizers to hydrate sunburned tissue.
If the pain from a sunburn is making it difficult for you to move or rest comfortably, you can apply a product with a topical anesthetic like lidocaine to temporarily numb your skin. These products often come in spray form, making them easy to apply.
Refresh and Nourish Skin Post Sun
Even if your skin isn't sunburned, it still needs some tender loving care after a day in the sun. The heat produced by the sun causes moisture to evaporate from the skin at a rapid pace, leaving it parched. After sun lotions and moisturizers address the problem by replenishing your skin's supply of moisture. These products can help to soften dry skin and ease feelings of tightness that may have developed due to moisture loss.
After Sun Solutions for the Whole Family
Everyone's skin needs attention after sun exposure, so many brands offer solutions for people of all ages. Extra gentle children's after sun products are available to help little ones feel better when sunburn strikes or when their skin feels itchy or dry due to the sun.
For adults, there are products offered with scents that are appealing to both men and women.
If you have sensitive skin, you can choose an after sun product that is hypoallergenic or opt for a natural formula that is less likely to contain synthetic ingredients to which you may be allergic. back to top »
