Coola ER+ Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion
This natural after-sun face and body lotion from Coola moisturizes skin with organic agave and aloe vera while replenishing it with antioxidants and vitamin-intensives (rosemary extract, cedar wood, and lavender, sunflower, sweet orange, and mandarin peel oils). The results: soothed skin, no more peeling, and cooling relief. In the words of one reviewer, it's a "miracle balm."
EiR NYC Sunset Oil
If you'd rather nourish your skin with a body oil than a lotion (it'll glide on easier for really bad burns), opt for EiR NYC's Sunset Oil. The Brooklyn-made product is infused with aloe and arnica—an herb known for its anti-inflammatory properties—along with essential oils and vitamins that restore smoothness, seal in moisture, boost collagen production, and promote cell growth.
TIGI Bed Head Totally Beachin' Mellow After-Sun Conditioner
While treating burnt skin may be your first priority, you'll want to take a moment for your hair, too. Chances are, if you were under the sun long enough to turn pink, it means your locks probably received their fair share of damage. This after-sun hair conditioner uses aloe, a UV complex, and vitamin E to take strands from dried-out to mermaid-soft.
CV Skinlabs Rescue + Relief Spray
Need advanced therapy? CV Skinlabs' Rescue + Relief Spray was designed to treat skin inflamed from chemical peels, radiation treatments, rashes, and more—so rest assured it'll get to work cooling and hydrating your lobster-red limbs.
Kypris Beauty Cerulean Soothing Hydration Recovery Mask
Give your sun-soaked face some extra TLC with a luxurious recovery mask from Kypris Beauty. The Cerulean treatment uses a blend of 36 organic, botanical active ingredients to revitalize skin and restore luminosity after it's been dehydrated, weather-worn, and overexposed to UV rays.
Korres After Sun Greek Yoghurt Cooling Gel for Face and Body
Suitable for both face and body, Korres' cooling after-sun gel is made from real Greek Yoghurt—a cherished ingredient used for centuries in Greece—to reduce redness, prolong your tan, and relieve heat and stinging. Pop it in the fridge before use for even cooler relief.
Maui Babe After Browning Lotion Tan Enhancer and Healer
If you tan rather than burn, Maui Babe is the after-sun brand for you. This body lotion moisturizes skin with natural ingredients (macadamia nut oil and aloe) to enhance and seal in your tan while preventing peeling.
Sun Bum Cool Down Hydrating After Sun Lotion
Sun Bum's after-sun lotion gets major points for its yummy beach smell and light, non-greasy formula that leaves skin smooth. We love the intense hydration from the combo of cocoa butter, aloe, and vitamin E.
Sachajuan Hair After The Sun
Not only does Sachajuan's Hair After the Sun make a great conditioner, it also works as a leave-in product for an even deeper replenishment. You can credit its effectiveness to "Ocean Silk Technology," the brand's original algae-based complex of proteins and minerals that hydrate and restore shine.
SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Masque
It seems cult-favorite brand SkinCeuticals can do no wrong, and based on all its five-star reviews, this Phyto Corrective Masque is no exception. The facial mask, which can be rinsed off after 15 minutes or worn overnight, cools skin on contact and has been clinically tested to reduce redness, irritation, and discomfort, with the help of pure botanical ingredients (cucumber, thyme, and olive extracts), hyaluronic acid, and dipeptides.
Herbivore After Sun Soothing Aloe Mist
Looking for a quick and easy way to feel a little better? A mist it is! Herbivore's spray relieves skin with aloe, lavender, and mint. It also comes in a cute 2-oz. travel size—perfect for taking on the plane or keeping in your purse—for an on-the-go hydration boost.
Leaders Daily Wonders Too Much Fun In The Sun Mask
Sheet mask fanatics, this one's for you. Leaders' Too Much Fun in the Sun is packed with cactus and butterfly bush extracts, which provide a soothing sensation for extra-parched skin. Pro tip: use the excess essence on your neck, upper body, or wherever else you're feeling the burn.
Amara Beauty Organic Cold Pressed Aloe Gel
Plain doesn't have to mean bad—in the case of Amara Beauty's organic cold-pressed aloe, it means absolutely perfect just the way it is. The thin, liquid-like aloe vera gel absorbs into skin to moisturize and heal, with zero added colors, fragrances, or alcohols and no sticky residue left behind.
