WHILE we all love getting that golden glow on holiday, coming home red as a lobster is never a good look.
Whether it’s your skin or your hair, sunburn is not only painful but can cause long term damage so we’ve rounded up the best after sun summer saviours.
After spending all day in the sun, sea or swimming pool, your hair will probably be feeling dry and coarse. Treat it to a deep conditioning mask to restore it back to its former crowning glory.

HOT AND STICKY
There’s nothing worse than feeling hot and sticky after sunbathing all day or doing some serious sight-seeing. Using an abrasive scrub can irritate skin so use a cooling body wash to help soothe any redness.

A rich and nourishing body butter ensures that your holiday glow lasts so invest in one with an infusion of oils which will help to nourish and hydrate the skin all day long.

While we top up the sunscreen on our bodies, it’s unlikely we do the same on our face which can mean we don’t notice the sunburn until it’s too late. An aloe vera-based moisturiser post tanning is like a glass of water for your face to soothe any tightness or redness.

It’s a common fact that most people will forget to apply SPF to their lips when in the sun and even more so once they are back indoors. Similar to the skin on our bodies, lips are susceptible to sunburn so give them a boost of hydration all day long.
