After Sun Skin Care Tips

After Sun Skin Care Tips to help your skin recover and regain health!

  • Use a gentle facial wash, not bar soap or gel soap to cleanse your skin. Use it twice if you have a build up of sunscreen, makeup or oil on the skin.
  • Skip the toner. Using alcohol based products could really dry you out even more than you already are, so unless it’s a rosewater or soothing alcohol free toner, just don’t use it while your skin is recovering from sun exposure.
  • Wait until your skin is no longer pink to use exfoliants or scrubs. Then after skin has normalized, use a gentle scrub to slough off dead, dull skin before it clogs your pores and causes breakouts.
  • Use a hydrating gel sheet mask or light cream mask to boost skin’s hydration level!
  • Use a hyaluronic acid serum to hydrate at the cellular level. (I have 2 options to choose from)
  • Layer on a lotion or cream to lock in moisture and help skin recover from the dehydrating effects of sun exposure.
  • Protect skin with SPF every morning. Using a SPF lotion as your daily moisturizer ensures you never miss this important step. I have about 8 different SPF’s available to help you find the perfect fit.
