Summer is right around the corner and we all know that means taking extra special care when it comes to protecting our skin. But try as we might, the summer sun can sometimes end up getting the best of us, so it’s important to know how to protect our skin when that summer sun does kick in a little too hard. So if you’re looking to learn more about tips and tricks for after-sun skincare, stick around because this blog is here to help!
Take a Cool Shower
If you’re battling a sunburn a good first step to soothe your skin is running it under cool water. Cool showers help to tame the heat and inflammation that occurs post-sunburn.
Drink Plenty of Water
This may seem like a given, but many people forget how dehydrating the sun can be. Sunburns draw fluid to the skin’s surface and away from the rest of the body. Making sure to replenish your body’s liquids by drinking extra water or even sip on a sports drink to replenish those electrolytes after sun exposure.
Load Up on Antioxidants
When you’re spending time in the sun your skin is in full defense mode and once you move away your skin begins to enter repair mode. An excellent way to reduce inflammation and help your skin in the repair process is to load up on antioxidants. Taking a skin supplement is a great way to aid your skin from within – our Lilium hydration supplement is packed with a powerful blend of antioxidant-rich vitamins to help rejuvenate your skin after the sun.
Check Up on Your Scalp
Your scalp is one of the easiest targets for burns, so taking steps to hydrate it post-sun exposure is a must! Our Lotus scalp oil is the perfect way to hydrate and nourish your scalp.

Moisturize with Soothing Ingredients
We all know how important it is to moisturize your skin after a day in the sun, but it’s extra essential to find a moisturizer that incorporates soothing, natural ingredients to nourish your skin while avoiding further irritation. Some great natural soothers include aloe vera (the holy grail of after-sun skincare), chamomile extract, and avocado oil – all of which you can find in our Rosa gentle daily moisturizer!
