In the last post of this series, *click*, I covered everything concerning sun protection, and now I want to talk about what to do with your skin after a day in the sun.
Now, the really important thing is that you really take care of your skin. Some people think, it's summer, it's warm, and therefore you don't need to moisturize, or not as much as in the winter. Wrong! Your skin always needs care and moisture. That is really really important! You want to have pretty skin after all, especially when you wear shorter clothes in summer.
After you've spend a day in the sun, you should always apply lotion to your full body, and there are some made especially for that, the so-called Après-Lotions. Après is french and means after. These products are sometimes also called After-sun-lotions.They're made for the needs of your skin after you've been out in the sun all day. What you want to do is put a lot of moisture back into your skin, and that's what these products do. Some also have a cooling effect, so in case you got sunburned it'll help you. It's gonna calm your skin. Another positive part of these lotions is that they have a super light gel-like formula most of the time. That way it's not sticky and you also won't sweat more because you're not wearing any heavy creme!
I always use these après-lotions after I've been in the sun, and this year I got the ones from Rossmann's brand SunOzon. One is a after sun fluid especially for the more sensitive face skin, and the other one is a regular lotion for my body.
The rule to keep in mind is to give your body some attention and to take care of it! Hydration is key!
What do you like to use after a day in the sun?
