“After a long day in the sun, the first thing I like to do is take a cool and refreshing shower. After cleansing, I begin my skincare routine with a pH-balancing toner. You want to avoid anything too acidic, because it will further increase your skin’s irritability. My Joanna Czech Toner is my Holy Grail product all year round – it’s both hydrating and anti-inflammatory, which will help relieve stressed and burnt skin. My Soothing Serum is an incredible after-sun treatment, as it includes an anti-inflammatory pepperberry extract and a bio-ceramide complex to calm red, stressed skin. I also love to cool my face down with a refrigerated sheet mask to help rehydrate and soothe the skin. To finish my routine, I use The Balm, which includes shea butter from Africa and vitamin E to seal in the moisture and prevent water loss overnight.
“It’s equally important to treat your body as it is your face, especially after a long day in the sun. I like to mix Nécessaire’s The Body Lotion with Costa Brazil’s Kaya Jungle Firming Body Oil to hydrate and nourish the skin. Always apply these products when both your face and body are damp, because your skin will be more permeable and receptive to moisture.
“Finally, when you’re in the sun, remember to drink lots of water, because sunburn will draw fluids away from the skin’s surface and cause dehydration.”
