AFTERSUN

Of course, sun is responsible for the natural production of vitamin D, but remember that its damage is irreversible. If it is important to use the sun to protect yourself, immediately after the key word is to moisturize and decongest to restore the health of the skin barrier. But did you know that sometimes sun may not be the skin’s only dangerous enemy? 

SUN AND CHLORINE. WHEN THE MENACE COMES BY WATER.

The desire to cool off from the heat hides other pitfalls like chlorine and salt. Chlorine is a corrosive chemical. While it keeps the water in the pool free of bacteria, it also seriously dries the skin. And the most sensitive profiles may feel that annoying sensation in the skin, which is immediately after washing it out of chlorine. But the pool isn’t the only trap. Although it’s not as chemical as chlorine, seawater makes the skin dry and cloudy. The best remedy? A cleansing and moisturizing combo. Start with double cleansing and then off with serums, creams and lots of masks and patches.
