All but the most vigilant of us has been there. You didn’t think you’d be out in the sun for very long, or you forgot to reapply, or you missed a spot…we’ve likely all experienced sunburn of one degree or another. After chastising yourself to do better next time, it’s time to take care of that damaged skin!
Step one is to hydrate your skin as much as possible. And remember, for your skin to “drink in” the maximum amount of moisture, it has to be clean. So, cleanse first-but be gentle! Your skin has already been traumatized; it needs to be pampered now. Rhonda Allison’s Milk Plus Cleanser, with natural milk, foaming peptides and yogurt extract, is a good choice to clean your aching skin.
Next, a moisturizer with aloe will help the healing process begin. Aloe’s superior healing qualities, including its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial action, as well as its ability to promote cell growth, make it ideal for after-sun care.
Finally, once the aloe has done its work and your skin is getting back to normal, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about a deep hydrating facial and/or back treatment. Sun damage is the prime cause of premature aging and you’ll want to attack the damage below the surface to make sure that your skin stays soft and fresh.
