If should go without saying that sun-related skin care protection – before, during and after sun exposure – is not only important to the health of your skin and your body, but also has a direct effect on the youthfulness of your appearance. Unprotected sun exposure can not only produce an uncomfortable and unsightly sunburn, but it’s also extremely dangerous. Overexposed skin cells become dehydrated, damaging the skin cell walls as well as the cell’s DNA, which can lead to skin cancer. But let’s face it, no matter how careful we are about applying sunscreen, every once in a while we forget to apply or reapply and we get burned. Try one of these soothing, moisturizing after-sun products to restore hydration and counteract the drying effects of the sun and other environmental exposure. Choose from gels, lotions, body milks and sprays designed to reduce redness, eliminate irritation and prevent inflammation and premature aging while nourishing, restoring balance and repairing the skin. An effective after-sun treatment is essential to have on-hand—just in case!
