8 Soothing Treatments for Sunburn and Sun-Damaged Skin
We know, you didn’t mean to get sunburned. You lost track of time, nodded off, or your forgot to reapply and before you actually even realized it, you scored a nasty sunburn. While it can take several hours for full damage to show its effect, it’s important to act fact. Sometimes though, (and we’re all guilty of it) we go without acting as fast as we should. Our skin may score some nasty peeling and signs of sun-damage, but year after year, summer after summer, we ignore all these signs.
While the easiest way to treat sunburn or sun-damaged skin is by healing it the moment it happens, sometimes that’s not always possible (or feasible). Luckily, there’s plenty of products and treatments on the market that can help improve both the short-term and long-term effects of sunburn and sun-damage.
...and we’ve got some great ones for you!
We’ve narrowed down a list of the top 8 treatments and solutions, all filled with powerful nutrients and antioxidants that can help revive and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin.
1. Advanced Skin Care Day Spa’s Oxygen Blast Treatment
When attempting to treat sunburn, the best thing you can do for your skin is to cool it down..fast.
And there’s no better way to achieve relief than with our Oxygen Blast Treatment.
Why? Because it literally blasts nutrients directly into the skin, while simultaneously cooling down the skin's temperature.
The result? Amazing glowing skin that’s packed with the nutrients needed to speed up the healing and recovery process of your skin.
However, if you’re looking for a more “take-home” approach to treating your skin, we recommend using two of our favorite products:
