Care for the skin after long days in the sun is just as important to maintain a healthy complexion and smooth, soft skin. Discover our edit of skin and body care to help nourish and repair the skin after a long day in the sun.

When it comes to skincare, prevention is key and SPF application is essential to protect from long-term damage from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays which penetrate the skin and accelerate the natural ageing process. We must do all we can to protect the skin from these harmful rays which contribute to skin cancers and skin precancers due to long-term unprotected exposure to the sun. Sunscreen is not just for long days at the beach; even on a cloudy day harsh UV rays can penetrate the skin (this is not a myth!) putting you at risk of burning and damaging the skin. 

You need as much protection indoors as well outdoors. UV rays can also penetrate through windows causing the skin to burn even when inside. Come rain or shine, always remember to wear SPF.

Our Body Protection Sunscreen SPF 25 uses a patented combination of cosmeceuticals and organic filters for UVA/UVB protection as well as ectoin, balloon vine and broccoli seed oil to counteract signs of pre-mature ageing for long-lasting protection. Be careful to avoid the harsh midday sun between the hours of 12 and 3pm.

Care for the skin after long days in the sun is just as important to maintain a healthy complexion for smooth, soft skin. Discover our edit of skin and body care to help nourish and repair the skin after a long day in the sun.

Face:

  • Once or twice a week apply our gentle Enzyme Exfoliator. Aloe vera has a cooling and soothing effect, perfect for skin that has had a little too much sun exposure. The peel works to deeply cleanse pores after a full day of SPF application and clarify the skin without causing irritation.

  • Double cleanse with our Purifying Cleansing Gel and Soothing Toner to lift any access grime from a day at the beach or by the pool.

  • Apply our Purifying Serum to help fight skin impurities without drying the skin. Apply before moisturising and SPF application.

  • Refresh the undereye area any time of the day with our Eye Rescue Serum, our must-have summer essential. Top tip: leave in the fridge overnight for an extra cooling effect.

  • Body:

  • To help cool and soothe the skin after a long day in the sun, apply our After Sun Gel Moisturising to help soothe the skin and regenerate while you sleep. Top tip: leave in the fridge overnight for an extra cooling effect to soothe sun burnt areas.

  • Frequently moisturising the skin will help maintain your tan all summer long. Try our hydrating Body Butter or Toning Body Cream to help soothe and firm the skin.

  • Apply our Detox Oil Scrub once a week to thoroughly cleanse and buff the skin after continual SPF application throughout the day to avoid any build up. Apply the scrub in a gentle stroking motion rather than rubbing your skin too hard to avoid aggravating the skin, especially when exposed to the sun.

  • Take an Alkali Salts bath: thoroughly wash off any dirt and grime from the pool or sea and help restore the skin’s pH level. Whey powder is great for sunburned and irritated skin. Top tip: use as a hair treatment before shampooing to thoroughly cleanse your hair/scalp and lift any built-up impurities from days lounging on the beach or relaxing by the pool.
