When you’re off on holiday, it’s always a bit too easy to leave the sunscreen until you get there. I’m guilty of doing a day one haul at the nearest chemist every time I go away (those lotions and potions are heavy, and luggage allowances are not what they used to be). So, even if you’re not planning on lugging a shelf worth of SPF with you, a neat little tube you should be packing is undoubtedly Insitut Esthederm’s After Sun Repair.
This neat little tube slots into the most minimalist of suitcases and is just the thing for sun-ravaged skin. Since I live in Scotland (boo hoo) my skin is admittedly quite fair, it can be susceptible to burning, and even though I try my best to keep it out of the sun, mistakes do happen, and that’s where the After Sun Repair comes in handy.
Using the After Sun Repair couldn’t be easier – after cleansing, simply massage a few drops of the moisturiser in, as you would a normal face cream. It’s wonderfully cooling and nourishing to apply – you can positively feel any burns calming right down as you slap it on. As it delivers a good dose of moisture to the skin, the formula also activates the pigmentation process whilst restructures the skin deep down to prevent wrinkles.
Insitut Esthederm – After Sun Repair is priced at £36 and is available here
