Enjoying some sun is all part of the fun when you go on holiday, but your skin needs some quality aftercare if you want to avoid dry, flaking, and itchy patches.

After sun products soothe and cool overheated skin after a fun day spent baking on the beach or by the pool. After sun gels, lotions, and sprays restore the skin’s natural moisture levels and protect you from UV damage. If you have sunburn, a good quality after sun product will reduce the redness and soothe sore skin. Using after sun after exposure to the sun will also help to prolong your suntan.

Look for products that are non-greasy and easily absorbed. Some also contain insect repellent. And if you want extra protection, buy a handy travel pack containing extra sun protection oil or cream.
