The Ultimate 5-Step After Sun Skincare Routine
By now, you know how crucial it is to apply SPF every day, especially before prolonged sun exposure. But wearing sunscreen is only half of a great defense – the other half comes after you’ve been exposed to the sun. Always give your skin post-exposure TLC so it can stay luscious and beautiful. Here’s how you can experience flawless after-sun skin in just five steps.
Step 1. Cleanse away the sweat, the oil, and the grime
When you get home from the beach or the pool, don’t make your skin wait – immediately cleanse away all the sweat, the oil produced by your skin, the layers of sunscreen, and the dirt with a powerful cleanser. But powerful doesn’t mean harsh – the last thing you want is chemicals that strip your skin of its natural glow. Pick a clean and safe formula with soothing and calming ingredients.
Seacret Deep Cleansing Facial Wash is a great choice, especially in the summer, as it removes impurities without drying your skin. It’s gentle on the skin and leaves it fresh and purified.
Step 2. Moisturize
Sun exposure can be extremely drying for the skin – any type of skin. Right after cleansing, while your skin is still damp, apply your preferred moisturizer. No matter what you do, do not skip this step.
Seacret Age Defying Refresh Vitamin Rich Moisturizer is the perfect after-sun moisturizer. The ultra-nourishing formula contains vitamin capsules for long-lasting replenishment and hydration for healthy-looking skin. Infuse your skin with the optimum level of actives and vitamins once more as part of your evening beauty routine with the night cream of the same series: Seacret Age Defying Rehydrate Vitamin Rich Night Cream.
Step 3. Relieve a sunburn
If your skin looks red, feels tight or sensitive, or if you have a sunburn, reach for a cream with aloe Vera. Aloe vera not only helps to deeply hydrate the skin but also provides an incredibly refreshing feeling. It acts as a cooling shield.
With generous amounts of aloe vera, cucumber, and chamomile, Seacret Essential Moisture Face Cream delivers soothing relief for your after-sun skin.
Step 4. Apply a Cica sheet mask
Give your skin its luminosity back with cica. Short for centella asiatica, cica is a pure gift of nature. Also known as tiger grass, it’s a centuries-old ingredient that helps to repair and soothe the skin, especially after prolonged sun exposure.
Seacret Cica Calm Cooling Mask is infused with generous amounts of cica. In ten-fifteen minutes, this intensive mask lowers your skin’s temperature and gives your skin a replenished, calm look and feel.
Step 5. Pamper your lips
It isn’t just your facial skin that gets dry and damaged from the sun. The skin on and around your lips is very thin and sensitive. After spending time in the sun, you may find that your lips feel uncomfortable, dry or chapped. If that’s the case, you should start your post-sun lip care routine with exfoliation. Use a gentle exfoliator to get rid of dead cells. Next, apply a hydrating lip balm to protect and soothe your lips.
