After-sun care for a longer-lasting tan

After-sun products are your closest allies in the war against ageing skin. Available in the form of creams, lotions and gels, they deeply nourish your skin and help prolong your tan.

PLAN ON CATCHING SOME RAYS?

  • Avoid the sun between noon and 4 P.M.
  • Opt for sunscreen with a high SPF (30 and up).
  • Thirty minutes before heading outdoors, moisturize your entire face and body.
  • Reapply sunscreen every time you get out of the water.
  • Remember to protect yourself every day of your vacation—even if it’s just hazy out, or you’re walking by the water, or taking a nap on the beach! 

After-sun care: tremendous benefits

Softer to the touch

After-sun products contain lipids (like vegetable oils, ceramides and essential fatty acids) that complement the action of hydrating agents like hyaluronic acid and glycerine. To stay light on skin, these products usually come in emulsified oils (translation: water in oil), milks or gels.

Soothed skin

When you apply an after-sun product to skin that’s been exposed to UV rays, you’ll notice a cooling sensation. Oftentimes, this refreshed feeling can be attributed to menthol.

Extra protection

Antioxidants, like flavonoids and Vitamins C and E, are often blended into after-sun products to equip your skin with extra defenses against UV rays.

Goodbye, burns!

After-sun care is an excellent tool for accelerating the healing process after nasty sunburns. Aloe Vera, with its long proven track record, fights against redness and pain (note that the plant contains anti-inflammatory agents). Vitamin B5 and Centella Asiatica (tiger herb) are other key ingredients that also help skin repair faster.

Improved appearance

With their intoxicating and refreshing fragrances, pearlescent finish and self-tanning ingredients, a whole host of after-sun products really put the fun in function. And it’s not just because they’ve got the “after-sun” label that you have to use them post-sundown! Actually, after-sun care can be used in the morning during the summer months to keep that radiant golden tan aglow for weeks on end. Certain brands also act as powerful anti-aging products.
