I posted about my skincare routine for my face, after I burned it baking under the sun (ha), and I figured I’d do one for my body since I badly burned it too. Other than drinking copious amounts of water to rehydrate, here’s what has been helping my poor skin recuperate.
I like to occasionally exfoliate my body, especially when my skin’s all dry and flaky from the beach. I don’t do it everyday, since my skin’s still a bit sensitive, but I just use a standard bath lily. Konjac sponges are perfect for this as they are extremely gentle, but I ran out, so bath lily it is! I’ve also been trying out the Cure Natural Aqua Gel* which also gets rid of dead, flaky skin.
I mainly use the Kracie Aroma Resort Body Milk in Shine Orange and Bergamot* as it smells amazing, is light enough to use for the day, but provides ample moisture at night. My feet are really perpetually dry (what’s up with that, body?), so I like slathering on this lotion or applying a heavier lotion/foot cream, and wearing cozy socks to bed. I still have calluses, but my skin doesn’t crack anymore.
Like I mentioned in my face post, I use the Kosé Suncut Water in UV Protect Essence SPF 50+ PA++++ for my body as well. It’s part of my Project Pan this year, and it’s such a light formula that doesn’t leave gross sunblock stickiness, so I actually really like using it.
And that’s it! I feel like I should be doing something more, so let me know if you think I’m forgetting something in this post-sunburn aftercare routine.
