After-Sun Skincare Tips for Beach Season3 min read
Wherever you kicking back poolside this summer, be sure not to slack on your skincare routine. After hours of natural sunlight, during which you have lathered on copious amounts of sunscreen (right? right!), plus chlorine or salt – or, both!) you’ll need a gentle exfoliant and super-hydrating after-sun products to refreshing and smooth your skin. We’ve got you covered.
Apply Coconut & Sugar Nourishing Sugar Scrub all over your body, paying special attention to your knees and elbows. The gentle formula sloughs away dead skin cells with crushed sugar and shell particles. Grapeseed and sunflower oils help to pamper the skin afterwards.
Hit the shower with a lukewarm water temp so as not to inflame over-sunned skin.
Looking for something even gentler? Try our Yuzu & Ginger Gentle Exfoliating Wash, made with yuzu extract, ginger root extract and jojoba pearls. The little gold pearls burst on contact with skin and super refreshing and delightful. Banish excess sun cream and delicate skin with ease.
Our ultra-lightweight hand cream is a great non-greasy option to apply on hands (and legs and arms as some of us do daily). We’d suggest the brilliantly bright Cucumber & Lotus hand cream for post-beach evenings. Toss it in your bag and enjoy its lush hydrating formula, packed with essential oils and nourishing vitamins to soothe parched skin.
And whatever you do, do not forget your lips. Since the sun can be extremely harsh and drying, apply a rich lip balm, like Scentbird’s Pink Champagne, infused with grapeseed oil, beta-carotene, and essential fatty acids. After a day in the sun, we often skip color products and just embrace that lightly sunkissed glow.
