Product Hype: Clarins Soothing After Sun Balm

Let’s be honest. Right now, we’re all spending much less time outside than we normally would. In fact it’s our new normal. And while we know that when you are heading to the park for a walk with the dog or skateboarding the isolation blues away, you’ve applied your daily dose of sunscreen. Yet, because your skin is only sporadically seeing the sun, despite your best sunscreening efforts, getting a burn can actually be quite easy and painful.

We know mom used to slather a multitude of different products on your burned skin when you were a kid, but balms tend to work best thanks to their deeply hydrating and restorative properties. Options, like Clarins Soothing After Sun Balm do exactly as the name suggests, they soothe your red and irritated skin by giving it much needed relief from over exposure to the sun and any damage that may have occurred as a result.

Replete with ingredients such as sunflower, safflower, aloe vera, watermelon and shea, the balm’s creamy formula glides on and absorbs easily while soothing burns, enhancing your tan, hydrating, reviving, softening, refreshing, comforting and nourishing your epidermis. Your skin will also stay soft and moisturized for at least two days after you apply it, which will help reduce any peeling. And there’s the added advantage of being able to use it just as safely on your body as you can your face, so you only need one product.
