Well we may have seen the back of summer in the UK but just in case you are planning a quick trip abroad to somewhere hot we have put together a guide to after sun care. Sun protection doesn’t just start and end with sunscreen. The sun can create more issues for our skin besides blistering sunburns. It can also dry out your complexion and irritate it. If you’ve been out in the sun all day, you need to be considering what you’re applying when you get in doors. You need to replenish the moisture that was lost during the day and soothe any irritated parts of your skin. These 10 after-sun products will help restore your skin.
