With Hong Kong’s sun-drenched summer still in full swing, it’s no surprise that quite a few of us are sporting some angry red marks or peeling patches on our skin – hello, sunburn.
If you’re in need of some rapid relief from spending too long catching the rays, here are five of the best soothing, nourishing, moisturising and refreshing after-sun treatments available in Hong Kong, leaving you free to continue enjoying the last stretch of our long, hot summer.
Quench your sun-parched skin with a soothing spritz from cult favourite Herbivore Botanicals. This all-natural wonder features healing aloe vera, cooling peppermint essential oil and redness-reducing lavender essential oil to create a deliciously refreshing mist that your dry, irritated skin will practically drink up.
This after-sun balm from Clarins features an ultra-nourishing blend of sunflower, aloe vera, watermelon and shea butter extracts, which promise to deliver an intensive 48-hour hit of hydration to sun-damaged skin. This antioxidant-loaded balm protects against free-radical damage, rejuvenating and softening skin – and even helps your tan last longer, too.
Don’t forget to give your hair some after-sun TLC too. This deep conditioning treatment from Swedish haircare brand Sachajuan is enriched with “ocean silk technology” – a strength-building mix of sea algae, proteins and minerals that restores shine and moisture to stressed-out, sun-damaged tresses – and can either be rinsed out or left in to work its magic.
Enriched with hydrating aloe vera, calming grape water and nourishing coconut oil, this lightweight, luxurious lotion is a saviour for sun-damaged skin – comforting, moisturising and repairing in equal measures. This divinely scented multitasker also helps boost your tan’s lifespan, ensuring you’ll enjoy that summer glow for even longer.
No stranger to a sun-soaked climate, you can trust Greek skincare brand Korres to know a thing or two about how to heal sunburnt skin. Based on a traditional yoghurt treatment that Greek grannies have been using to soothe sun damage for centuries, this probiotic-packed cooling gel is an insider’s favourite for providing long-lasting relief to irritated skin – leaving skin feeling instantly softer, smoother and rejuvenated.
