Skincare Saviours for Sun Parched Skin

I think 80% of the country is sunburnt after this weekend’s heat wave. We have all been guilty of overdoing it in the sun. Unfortunately, sun damage can cause premature ageing and permanent damage to the skin so it’s best to apply plenty of SPF before you get burnt.

If you are one of those suffering from parched and sensitive skin, I have some products which help bring your skin back to life. Of course, after sun is a no brainer, put it in the fridge to cool the skin.
When you come out of the sun indoors, try a spritz to instantly add moisture to the skin. The Evian Facial Spray* is just water in an atomised spray, but it does wonders when you are overheated.

If you’d like something with some added skincare benefits, I would recommend the Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist or the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour All-Over Miracle Oil*. The Pixi Mist has hydrating ingredients and has an amazing fine spray so you don’t end up soaked. The Elizabeth Arden Oil is a multi-use product and can be used in the hair, on the body or face.

Hyaluronic Acid is the best ingredient when your skin is dehydrated. I have recently reviewed The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 5% + B5, which I use as a serum. I then apply the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream*, this is a staple in my collection. It’s so nourishing and sinks in quickly.

Clarins and Origins have fantastic overnight masks, which replenish the skin while you sleep. The Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask has a lovely fruity scent. I think it's a miracle worker when it comes to plumping the skin up. Similarly is the Clarins HydraQuench Mask*, this is intended to be wiped off after 10 minutes but I often leave it on overnight if my skin is parched. Both aren't like traditional masks as the formulas are more like a colourless thick cream.

Hopefully, these hydrating and moisturising products will help soothe the skin and repair some of the damage from the sun.

I have a post on my favourite SPF’s so you won’t get sunburned again.
