After a day spent basking in the sun, you can usually expect to leave your hotel room (or wherever you spent time outdoors) with red, itchy skin and an uncomfortable burning sensation. Your first instinct may be to reach for your trusty bottle of aloe vera gel, but if you spend much time in the sun during the summer, you'll probably want something that's going to go above and beyond—something like an after-sun lotion. If you aren't already aware of what after-sun creams are, they're products that will help assuage those unpleasant sensations from exposure to too much sunlight.

Once exposed to the naked sun, even without sunburns, the skin barrier gets disrupted and inflamed by heat, UV radiation, visible light, and infrared. For this reason, you must pay special attention to the kind of after-sun lotion you buy. The best after-sun lotion should repair and restore the skin barrier and replenish the lost moisture.

Going for skin-care options with moisturizing and hydrating ingredients such as sunflower seed oil, shea butter, and glycerine is a great strategy because they help with repairing the skin barrier, the best after-sun lotions, such as Heinrich Barth After-Sun Moisturizing cream combination of natural ingredients that restore the natural balance of your skin. It's essential to select after-sun lotions with antioxidants since they help neutralize free radicals that cause the formation of lines and wrinkles, cause hyperpigmentation and accelerate skin aging. Aloe is the number one ingredient you wouldn't want to miss in your after-sun lotion, its effectiveness in giving your skin that soothing and incredibly calming feel after a hot day in the sun is guaranteed.

While going for heavy after-sun lotions may be the most intuitive thing, lightweight cream is a way to go because you want your skin to release the heat rather than hold it in.

A great time to apply the best after-sun lotion would be right after you shower when your skin is still damp, and this is because the skin is much more permeable, allowing the ingredients to penetrate easily. If you spend lots of hours in the sun, having a routine of applying your after-sun lotion at least twice a day will have your skin looking turned up and not burnt.
