You had a long day outdoors with the sun beating down on your skin most of the day. Does your skin feel tight, stinging, or even burned? Your first thought might be to reach for that after-sun product in hopes to soothe your red skin. But what you may be overlooking is how some after-sun products are actually doing your skin more harm than good. Let’s delve into some of the reasons why natural lotion is better than after-sun care products.
What’s Wrong With After-Sun Products?
Many after-sun products promise to ease any pain or inflammation that you may experience after being out in the sun for prolonged periods of time. Promises of “cooling and soothing” or “refreshing and gentle” are all too familiar in this field. The ingredient label can say otherwise, with many of these after-sun products containing chemicals and synthetic fragrances that may further irritate and damage the skin. Anything containing alcohol, salicylic acid, or other drying components can be harsh on your sensitive burnt skin.
Making The Switch To A Natural Lotion
When choosing a natural lotion to switch to from an after-sun product, you want to look for a thick, creamy formula, as these are going to hydrate your dry skin the best. Try and find a natural lotion that is packed with vitamins. Some of the best vitamins for your skin after being in the sun are Vitamin C and Antioxidants, which can fight against signs of aging caused by UV damage.
