We’re confident you share the importance of sun protection with all your staff, clients, and really anyone within earshot. Protecting skin before and during sun exposure or any outdoor time is a non-negotiable. However, it’s equally important to care for skin and hair properly after time in the sun. Here are a few tips to revive skin after the sun goes down:
- If you get sunburn, immediately apply an aloe gel, which includes actual aloe in the top of the ingredient list and not water and glycerin.
- Do not use an exfoliating agent on the face after spending too much time in the sun. Use a gentle facial cleanser to remove the dirt, sweat, and grime from the day and apply a rich moisturizer immediately after.
- Apply an ultra hydrating facemask the day after tanning; the skin will drink up the hydration. Bonus points if it’s an overnight mask. Face and body lotions with vitamin E will help skin heal itself from the time in the sun.
- Hair can’t get sunburned per se, but saltwater, chlorine from the pool, and sun exposure can create a great deal of damage to hair causing it to become brittle and rough. While out in the sun the best protection for the hair is a hat. It that’s too cumbersome, use an ultraviolet guard hairspray before leaving the house.
- To prevent further hair damage rinse hair under a fresh water shower in between dips in the water. Bring a leave-in conditioner to apply to hair after rinsing. Immediate hydration is what hair begs for.
- Once home after a day at the beach, it’s best to use a shampoo and conditioner that is specifically for after-sun use. Apply a hair mask as well to restore damaged hair.
