After-sun care can be just as crucial as applying sunscreen before sun exposure, and using the right ingredients is key. Aloe is oft-touted for its anti-inflammatory, anti-peeling, and ultra-moisturizing properties, which is why it is the superstar of after-sun care. Eforea Spa at Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino (Noord) features this miracle plant at its DIY Aloe Scrub Bar, where guests are able to use Aruban aloe to create custom scrubs with guidance from the resort’s aloe concierge. “It's truly an interactive experience and provides knowledge that the guests get to bring home,” says Marielle Smeets, senior director of resort experience at Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino. “Guests love it because they continue doing it at home and it becomes their secret to having soft hands. It's a hidden gem of our spa and brings the spa experience outside of the spa walls."
