Aftersun Skincare

Updated: Jun 18

Although summertime brings many bright moments and pleasant memories, it also brings with it some challenges for our skin. Exposure to intense sunlight, heat, wind and salt water can have a significant impact on the structure and condition of the skin.


How does summer heat affect the skin?

Solar radiation includes ultraviolet rays that can penetrate deep into the skin and damage cells. This process is called photoaging, and it can lead to the destruction of collagen and elastin - important components responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Also, solar radiation stimulates the production of melanin, which can cause the appearance of age spots.

IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION: speaking about facial care after summer, we mean the active effect of the sun on the skin. Given the fact that it is possible to bask in the sun in winter in different parts of the world, the recommendations will be useful for beach lovers at any time of the year.


After sunburn, the skin may lose its uniform tone and become less elastic. Dryness, peeling and even small cracks may appear. Pigmented spots may appear on exposed areas of the skin, such as the face, hands and decollete.

If you notice that the skin on your face has become less even, perhaps this is due to the uneven distribution of melanin after long days on the beach.


Tan, as a protective reaction of the skin to ultraviolet radiation, can seem attractive and even healthy. However, prolonged and intense exposure to the sun can lead to more serious consequences. Sunburn, DNA damage, and accelerated aging are just some of the negative effects of excessive tanning.

After a vacation at the sea or ocean, you may notice that redness has appeared on your shoulders and back, which indicate superficial sunburn. Having turned into a cute ruddy tan, sunburn, although it may seem beautiful, there is no benefit from it.

After the end of the summer season, when the skin needs intensive restoration, certain cosmetic procedures can be especially useful.

Recommended procedures after intensive tanning


Chemical peeling

This procedure allows you to actively restore skin cells and improve its texture due to the effects of acids, which stimulates natural regeneration processes.

Mesotherapy with vitamins

The introduction of vitamins and antioxidants directly into the skin will nourish it from the inside and improve the overall condition.

Biorevitalization with hyaluronic acid

After the summer period, when the skin often experiences dehydration, hydration becomes a priority. Biorevitalization with hyaluronic acid can deeply moisturize the skin and restore its vitality.

If you notice that the skin has become less elastic and has lost its natural radiance, cosmetic procedures will help improve microcirculation and stimulate cell renewal, returning the skin to a healthy appearance.

When to go to the cosmetologist?

The optimal time to visit a cosmetologist is the period 2-3 weeks after intensive tanning. The skin, which has experienced the load from solar radiation and other factors, begins to recover and loses part of the tan, which allows the cosmetologist to more accurately assess the condition and needs of the skin. The skin is an incredibly unique and valuable organ that requires care and attention. Procedures after the summer will help you restore its health and natural radiance, and regular care and protection from solar radiation will help to preserve this result for many years.

And what you can do in the meantime?

Of course, in late August-early September, when the summer season is in full swing, there are several important steps that you can take to care for your skin and minimize the negative effects of sun exposure.

Intensive hydration

After prolonged exposure to the sun, the skin may lose a lot of moisture. Use moisturizers and serums containing hyaluronic acid, aloe vera or other moisturizing ingredients. This will help restore the level of hydration and make the skin softer and firmer.

Sun protection

Despite the fact that summer is coming to an end, the sun's rays can still be intense. Do not forget to use sunscreens with a high SPF (sun protection factor), especially if you spend a lot of time outside.


Include in your care products with antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E. They will help protect the skin from free radicals caused by solar radiation and promote cell renewal. Also, these preparations can be taken orally and in the form of droppers.

Pigmentation Care

If you have pigmented spots or uneven skin tone, you can use products with exfoliating ingredients such as alpha and beta hydroxy acids. They will help to even out the skin tone and reduce pigmentation.

Do not forget to take care of the skin around the eyes, as it is especially thin and sensitive. Use moisturizing and nourishing products specially designed for this area.

Nutrition and Hydration

Proper nutrition and drinking enough water is also important for skin health. Increase your intake of fruits, vegetables and antioxidant-rich foods.

Protect your skin from overheating

When going outside in the hot time of the day, wear a hat, sunglasses and clothes covering exposed areas of the skin.

Nourishing masks and compresses

Use moisturizing and nourishing face masks to restore vitality to the skin. You can also use compresses with soothing ingredients, for example, with cucumber extract or green tea.

Moderate physical activity

Moderate physical activity promotes better blood circulation and renewal of skin cells. Regular exercise will help to maintain skin health.

Body Care

Don't forget about body skin care. After showering, use moisturizing lotions or oils to prevent dryness and peeling. Remember that skin care is a process that requires regularity and attention. Even in the middle of August, you can take many steps to restore and improve the condition of your skin after the summer period.
