Why are after-sun products important?
1. Exposure to the sun damages skin and speeds up aging
Sun is your best friend when it comes to achieving a tanned glow. Unfortunately, it can also be your skin's worst enemy. UV rays lead to dehydration and dry out your skin. They can also cause oxidative damage and speed up the signs of aging on the skin. As a result, it's crucial you take care when spending time in the sun, and use maximum protection when you head outdoors. Back home, take the time to pamper your sun-damaged skin. Sunscreen protects skin during exposure, and after-sun care is essential to limiting the damage caused by UV rays. Even once you head back inside, skin continues to suffer the harmful effects of the sun's rays. After-sun care rehydrates skin and helps repair it. It's also the best way of keeping your tan for as long as possible.
2. Clarins' after-sun care
All Clarins after-sun products are based on extracts of plants renowned for their soothing, hydrating and reparative properties. These products help skin heal after exposure to the sun, and keep your tan looking glowing for longer. When on vacation, as soon as you get in from the beach, gently cleanse your skin to remove salt, sand and chlorine. Carefully dry your skin and apply the SOOTHING AFTER SUN BALM or REFRESHING AFTER SUN GEL skin is left rehydrated, soothed and refreshed, with your tan perfected and primed to last as long as possible. Tip: Continue applying the Balm after your holidays to keep your tan lasting even longer.
