You don’t need us to tell you that your skin plays a crucial role in protecting your body. It is our job to encourage healthy skin, not just on your face, but your whole body! While it may seem cumbersome or time consuming, skincare does not have to be laborious, and similar to brushing your teeth, taking care of your skin should become second nature.

There are several ways to maintain healthy and hydrated skin, even after tanning. These tips will assist you in keeping your skin healthy and beautiful, whether you are in the sun or not. 

Consider Using An After Sun Product with Natural Ingredients

While the term “natural” is extremely broad, it’s important to use products that contain conscious ingredients that are designed to rehydrate your skin after the sun.

Over Exposed soothes sunburn using a neuropeptide designed specifically to deeply penetrate your red, damaged skin. Tasmanian pepper extract helps Over Exposed to soothe sun-ravaged skin by rapidly reducing (in just 30 minutes) the redness caused by UV exposure. One application will keep working for up to 24 hours. Loading up on powerful antioxidants, like those found in seaberry seed and fruit oil, help support your skin’s repair functions. This nourishes and rehydrates your skin while providing the nutrients it needs to repair itself.

Using a Sunscreen

One of the ways you can keep your skin healthy after sun exposure is to ensure that it remains protected from the sun's harsh rays. While moisturizers make your skin look younger, sun damage does the complete opposite so a sunscreen-infused moisturizer should be your go-to! This will help your skin to stay hydrated and will help to prevent sun damage.

Our Smart Screen, water-resistant,  broad-spectrum, mineral SPF 20 is a high-performing superstar loaded with skin-loving antioxidants that helps to prevent sunburn while boosting your tan, thanks to our unique tyrosine-based active.

Use a Cleanser That Won’t Strip Your Skin

The key to healthy and hydrated skin starts in the shower, by using mild body care products that do not contain ingredients that will strip your skin of its natural moisture barrier. 

Instead, choose body cleansers that contain natural moisturizers such as coconut oil. Not only is coconut oil a great moisturizer, but it’s also an antioxidant that helps protect the skin from environmental stressors. Coconut oil fights free radical damage, and its natural antioxidant properties keep your skin looking plump and youthful. Looking for a great oil-based body wash, that will rehydrate your skin? Try Washed Up All In One Shower Oil, which combines powerful Algae Extract, Coconut Oil, and Polynesian Monoï Oil, to cleanse, firm, tone & hydrate. 

Moisturize When Your Skin Is Still Wet

Did you know that wet skin absorbs moisture better than when it’s dry?

Our High Tide In Shower Moisturizer uses skin-refining passionfruit oil, to work with the water on your skin, providing lasting moisture without leaving you feeling greasy. Inulin extract keeps your skin soft and hydrated well after your shower time escape has ended. Apply before drying off and lock in that tropical hydration for the entire day.

Remember, when it comes to treating dry, sun-ravished skin, it's critical to show extra love to places that tend to get the dries, like hands, feet, elbows, and knees.
