The warmth of the sun can feel great when it’s shining down onto our skin, but too much can cause painful sunburns, dryness, and peeling which can lead to premature aging and even skin cancer. While we all know the importance of sunscreen, if you’re outdoors all day, you can still get burned even if you’re diligently applying your SPF. To protect and pamper your skin after a long day in the sun, we’ve got a roundup of some of the best post-sun products to help heal and rejuvenate your skin.

Pro-Derm Hydrogel

Calming and lightly moisturizing, Hydrogel rapidly soothes sensitive, sun-damaged skin. It relieves itchiness and soothes any heat or irritation after sunburn. Made of plant and marine extracts, it’s naturally anti-inflammatory.

Pro-Derm Regenerating Cream

This cream has been formulated to moisturize, regenerate, soothe sensitive skin and protect against the elements. After skin has been damaged from the sun, the Regenerating Cream accelerates and improves the skin’s repair process.

Osmosis Quench

Quench is a potent lightweight moisturizer, containing high amounts of hyaluronic acid, organic shea butter, and jojoba seed oil. The ingredients restore damaged skin cells and help build the proteins in the skin. Non-greasy and lightweight, it provides maximum hydration for parched skin.

Osmosis Immerse

An intense boost of moisture, Immerse is used to calm and soothe very dry skin. Containing powerful antioxidant oils from blueberries, raspberries and calendula, this product helps to moisturize and replenish dry skin.

Osmosis Englighten

If you gained a few sunspots over the summer or experienced another form of pigmentation from the sun, Enlighten is for you. It lightens and brightens the skin, while simultaneously hydrating and calming the skin. It’s also a preventative treatment, as it offers protection from UV rays.
Even though we’re well through September, we are exposed to the sun all year round; therefore, sun protection is essential no matter what season you are in.

Summertime means sun, shorts, and sandals. But with that beach hair and bronzed skin also comes sun damage. While prevention is the first line of defense, no one (and no sunscreen) is perfect. We’ve listed our top treatments for after-sun care to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Microdermabrasion:
Exposure to sun, chlorine and salt water can dry out your skin, causing it to peel and flake. The buildup of dead skin can make skin appear dull, blotchy and uneven. Exfoliation is crucial to help remove sun damage and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it softer and brighter.
Our microdermabrasion treatments gently rejuvenate the skin with non-invasive exfoliation. By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion leaves the skin feeling smoother and dare we say, younger. We use the Pristine Precision Diamond Peel System because we love how the densely packed diamonds gently remove top layers of the epidermis, stimulating collagen and elastin production and improving blood flow. Microdermabrasion treatments are recommended for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Photorejuventaion:
The main cause of sunspots is prolonged exposure to UV rays from the sun. While increased sun exposure can cause fair-skinned faces to freckle, darker complexions are also vulnerable to uneven pigmentation. In fact, many of us may have a veil of pigment on our skin that we don’t even know is there.

To counteract this, we highly recommend Photorejuventation. Whether on your face, hands, neck, chest or back, Photorejuvenation can make you look like you’ve turned back time. This treatment pulses light into the skin, heating it to target and remove the unwanted brown and red marks from the sun to deliver a more even skin tone and overall glow. It uses light (in a good way!) to repair and revive your skin in an effective and non-invasive system. These treatments are done in a timely matter and can even be done over your lunch hour.
