If you forgot to put on sunscreen (smh) and fell asleep poolside, we’ll forgive you this once. Just remember to do proper damage control and apply an after-sun lotion ASAP. “Excessive sun exposure can be very drying or dehydrating to the skin,” says Leslie Iddison, Clarins regional training manager. “A good-quality after-sun product is going to rehydrate and soothe irritation and prevent your skin from peeling.” Here are 15 products to try this summer.
