The 6 best creams for after sunbathing in 2022
After an intense day outdoors, the best plan is a relaxing shower and a good dose of 'after sun'. Discover all the novelties in this article!
Once we have already learned the lesson of using sunscreen every time we are exposed to the outdoors, it is time to move on to the next level. And it is that after hours of sun our skin needs an extra dose of nutrition to reach optimal levels of hydration and avoid annoying itching, calm redness, if it has happened and also prevent peeling of the dermis. Moisturizing lotions to use after the sun, also commonly called aftersun, are specially formulated to meet the aforementioned objectives.

Although signs of sun-damaged skin are revealed within 24 hours of exposure, in some cases they can escalate, peaking at 72 hours. This uncomfortable sensation is produced by UV radiation, which can penetrate deep layers of the skin, causing irreversible damage, as we already know. Specifically, UVB rays remain in the most superficial layers of the skin and are the ones that cause sunburn, while UVA rays are the ones that cause aging.
Many of these creams incorporate ingredients that ensure the prolongation of the tan, so there you will have another incentive not to skip its application after each sun exposure. When the skin is hydrated, the tan is embellished and all its nuances can be appreciated on a juicy, young and healthy dermis.

The aftersun application can minimize some of these effects and can also become a relaxing moment of self-care. And it is that after spending the day outside in the open air under the influence of the sun, there is no feeling comparable to that of taking a shower and moisturizing the skin. In addition, the current market offer allows us to choose the product that best suits our preferences and needs. You can find creamier creams that provide deep hydration to the skin or light mists that refresh while treating it. The mousse format is one of the most innovative, it is a light texture that melts with the skin on contact, facilitating its absorption.
