Uh-oh, someone got sunburned… I guess at this stage it’s a little too late to lecture you about the dangers of excessive UV exposure (think age spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and skin cancer – sorry, we couldn’t help a little wrap over the knuckles), so we may as well help you out with the best sunburn solutions…
Key-Sun Zinke After Sun Aloe Vera Gel – your stinging sunburned skin will need some serious soothing, and there’s nothing better than cooling aloe vera gel to help re-hydrate and ease the pain. Pop it in the fridge overnight and use it cold for extra relief.
Dermalogica UltraCalming Mist – ok, so technically this redness-reducing spritz isn’t for sunburn, but trust me when I say it works. It’s packed with ingredients that act as anti-inflammatories, and also helps to repair any damage caused to the skin.
Maybelline New York Coverstick Corrector Concealer in Green – yep, that’s right, we said green. The colour green actually works to counteract redness, so if your sunburn has left you looking a little more Rudolph than ravishing, then this baby will be your godsend!
Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Fresh Lotion with SPF15 – sorry, but we’ve gotta say it – prevention is better than a cure in this case! Luckily, this fabulous two-in-one covers the prevention side with its added SPF15, and the cure side too thanks to the nourishing aloe vera in the formula.
