When it comes to packing for a holiday, one of the first things we think of in the beauty department is sun cream, right? In fact, everyone seems to be pretty clued up on the stuff today with many taking an interest in SPF factors and debating whether or not 30 is the new 50. However, if we put as much time into investigating after sun products as we did our beloved sun creams, maybe we’d be coming back from our travels with skin that is a lot less flaky and a lot more moisturised. With that said, we’ve rounded up some of the dreamiest after sun care products out there right now – all available to shop on our FD Beauty site.
First up is the Garnier Ambre Solaire Aftersun Tissue Mask that will help to recharge your skin with a surge of hydration after lying around in the sun all day. It’s an ultra-thin tissue mask that is infused with witch hazel and hyaluronic acid that will leave your skin feeling soothed, revitalised and nourished. Just imagine coming back from your sunbathing sesh to freshen up for the evening and you have one of these beauties stashed away for an instant pamper – amazing!
Another incredible facial product is the Guinot Longue Vie Soleil Youth Face Cream which is actually a before and after sun treatment. It works in two ways to support the sun cream of your choice as well as soothing the skin after you’ve been exposed to the sun. If your skin is slightly more on the drier side too, this is a great product to use morning and night to top up that moisture.
Moving on to lotions, we have another fabulous product from the same brand, it’s the Guinot Youth Lotion After Sun for the body. This one is a moisturising treatment that works to re-hydrate your skin and enhance your tan. It’s incredibly calming with its reparative quantities and will help you to maintain a youthful, nourished look to your skin too.
If you prefer a gel formula that sinks in a little bit quicker, why not try the Ultrasun After Sun which is a favourite of many. What makes this one different from the others is its super lightweight formula that is perfect for cooling and soothing all over. Made in Switzerland, it has an ingredient called liposomal sodium ascorbate which activates the skin’s biological repair system. It also has an airless pump dispenser to prevent any contamination so it’s also a great product for sensitive skin too.
Finally, we have the Piz Buin After Sun Instant Relief Mist Spray which is perfect for a no-fuss application. It’s a gentle spray that provides instant 48-hour hydration while working to restore the natural moisture balance of the skin. If you’re a fan of a product that sinks in quickly too, this non-greasy, non-sticky formula will win you over in no time.
Treating yourself to great after sun products like these is always worth it because you’ll finally be able to wave goodbye to that dreaded peeling stage when you get back home. Instead, you can prepare for receiving tons of compliments on how lovely your tan is from head to toe!
