Summer Skincare Sin #1 - Overexposure to the sun Welcome back to the Botáni Blog for 2014! We are very excited to be back and to be able to share more useful skincare tips with you over the year...so let's get right into it! This month we're going to be helping you out with starting to repair your skin from all of the summer skincare sins that you may have put it through, starting this week with one of the biggest - sunburn! It's the classic Aussie way over the holidays - whether it's at the beach, the cricket, a backyard barbie or at the park, I'm sure like me that you have enjoyed some time in the sun this summer. Chances are you may have also forgot your hat or didn't remember to re-apply your sunscreen every few hours and ended up looking like a lobster? It's happened to all of us, and I'm sure that the red, itchy, stinging warmth of sunburn annoys us all. So how can you soothe it? Well of course, as in most cases, prevention is better than cure. So if you're planning on spending some time in the sun always remember to wear light weight clothing that covers your skin, a hat, some sunnies and to regularly re-apply a sunscreen with at least a SPF 30+ rating. But hindsight is a wonderful thing and if you're already feeling the effects of sunburn you'll be desperate for some relief. Look no further than Botáni's Soothing Facial Mist. Not only is the Mist fantastic at providing immediate cooling and refreshment to the skin, but it also provides your skin with many herbal benefits to help repair and re-hydrate the damaged skin. Including Rose Damascena, Aloe Vera & Chamomile, even the most agitated of skin will be calmed. My tip to experience the ultimate relief from the discomfort of sunburn? Keep your Soothing Facial Mist in the fridge so that it is cool upon application for ultimate refreshment (this is great in summer to refresh non-burnt skin too!) Also, to avoid peeling once the burning has subsided, make sure you apply Botáni's Olive Repair Cream to re-hydrate damaged skin, and to keep new skin healthy. Did you get burnt over summer?
