As much as we do our best to always protect our skin with sunscreen (reapplication throughout the day is a must!), sometimes the rays get the better of us when we lose track of time and a nasty burn gets left behind. To make sure you are prepared if such a summer sun dilemma occurs, we rounded up five our favourite products that help soothe our painful sunburnt skin.
Vichy Ideal-Soleil Double Usage After-Sun Care ($30, available at Shoppers Drug Mart) offers up after-sun hydration in an innovative way. This spray oil can be used both in the shower on wet skin or immediately after sun exposure on dry skin so you can keep your tan intact once the redness fades. You can thank the shea and apricot kernel oils, coriander and blackcurrant seeds and fatty acid-rich ingredients for your instantly soothed skin.
