After Sun Skin Care

One of the most important elements in looking your best in your favorite bikini is healthy, glowing skin.  Healthy skin starts with good genes but proper care can turn average skin gorgeous.  After a long period in the sun, when you were of course wearing sunscreen, cleansing your skin will help rid it of the oil, sweat and dirt of the day.  Be sure to use a gentle exfoliating scrub or sponge to remove dead skin cells that can make skin appear dull.

Following cleansing, it is important to use two different lotions; one for the body and a separate one for the face.  A good facial lotion will not leave behind an oily residue which helps keep pores clear and clean.  And don’t forget something on the lips!  They were exposed to sun all day, too.  The tender skin on the lips needs as much attention as the rest of the face.  A good body lotion containing aloe and vitamin e will help replenish the moisture lost during a day of sun exposure.  Apply evenly and allow it to completely soak into your skin.  If you spend a lot of time with your hands in water, don’t forget to reapply hand lotion over the course of the day.  Hands are known to be one of the first places on a woman’s body to show age.  Using these skincare tips not just after sun exposure but every day will help keep your skin smooth and healthy all year round.
