The most effective way to protect your skin against sunburn is using sunscreen. Sometimes, you can’t avoid sunburn and excessive sun exposure causes sunburn of the skin. If you suffer from sunburn of the face or body, using aftersun can give relief. But what is aftersun?
Aftersun is a special product you use when excessive sun exposure leads to sunburn. The best aftersun is similar to a high quality bodylotion that can be applied to the body as well as the face. This is because good aftersun doesn’t contain any ingredients that can damage skin with sunburn, like parfum, menthol or drying alcohol. Those are not suitable for sunburned skin.
Good aftersun for the face
A good aftersun contains ingredients that repair the damaged barrier function of the skin, antioxidants to combat oxidative stress, and soothing ingredients that diminish irritation and redness of the skin. Examples of this include hyaluronic acid, panthenol, green tea and aloe vera. These help to soothe and repair skin that is damaged from excessive sun exposure.
It is very important to soothe and cool off skin that shows sunburn. That is why aftersun usually has a light, hydrating texture that ensures that the skin releases the heat caused by sun damage. Textures of regular moisturizers or bodylotions may be too rich and greasy for skin showing sunburn. That’s why they aren’t always suitable to be used as aftersun. But a very hydrating bodylotion that is free of irritating perfume or alcohol can be used as an aftersun product. Just make sure it feels right for your skin.
