With the sun coming out to play and the temperatures rising, sun protection is an absolute necessity. However, we are bound to forget on occasion and have to deal with tender sunburns as a result. We have curated three skincare beauty techniques to use when the sun gets the best of you this season!
BABOR’s After Sun Ampoules
The sun can cause some serious havoc on your skin during the dry, summer months. The sun’s rays are harsh, and no matter how hard we try to protect ourselves, sunscreen just doesn’t always cut it. This can leave us with a painful burn that can lead to permanent cell damage. Fortunately, with BABOR’s NEW After Sun Ampoules, you can treat the burn and get your skin back to its glowing state in no time. The After Sun Ampoules reduce unpleasant sensations of tightness and irritation brought on by excessive UVA and UVB exposure and leaves our skin looking calm and relaxed.
- Active Ingredients
After Sun Ampoules are formulated with two powerful complexes that help calm and relax the skin. These combinations instantly reduce unpleasant tightness and irritation, strengthen the skin’s defense against free radicals, and promote skin regeneration.
- A complex of Phragmites Communis and Poria Cocos Extract instantly reduces skin’s redness, supports the skin’s barrier functions, and protects the skin from external stressors.
- A complex of Ethyl Ferulate, Rosemary Extract, Sugar Cane and Sugar Root help protect and repair our cells and DNA, creating a long-lasting and cooling effect. This complex also helps strengthen and reinforce the skin barrier.
When we get sunburns, our skin is literally hot to the touch. Instead of giving our full attention to the meeting we are in or conversation we are having, we fantasize rubbing ice across our necks to soothe our pain. This lack of attention can take away from the everyday things we need to get done. If you are not in an acceptable environment to carry a water spritzer or ice cubes with you, we recommend investing in a few ice packs. Make sure to put some sort of layer in between the pack and your skin, as to avoid irritating the burn even further. This is a practical way to not only make yourself feel better, but to aid in the healing process. When you finally get a moment out of the public eye and away from the judging eyes of those around you, fill your bathtub with cold water and a cup of baking soda. The alkaline and antiseptic properties you will immerse yourself in will aid in ridding yourself of itchy sensations.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, WATER IS GOOD FOR YOU! This miracle combination of Hydrogen and Oxygen fills our body with the nourishment it craves. Water helps to replenish our skin, which is a must after we’ve been in the sun for too long. Whether you are prone to instantly burn or always seem to achieve the perfect glow, it is necessary that you protect your body, and that starts with hydration.
TIP: When you’re craving something a little more fulfilling, try adding watermelon to your diet! It’s no coincidence that the word “water” is in the word watermelon — this perfect summer treat also makes for the perfect hydrator! Your skin will thank you, we promise.
