I was on the beach during my long week-end and since my skin is really white I got burned like every year
I was really annoyed so I was on the hunt for the best after-sun...
I had at home the Solarcaine Burn Relief Spray
SOLARCAINE is a pain relieving spray with lidocaine that cools instantly, it restores moisture to sunburned skin.
It cools the burn fast for instant pain relief. This gentle no-rub spray with lidocaine and aloe vera draws heat away from the skin to instantly cool and soothe sunburn while moisturizing to help reduce dryness. Also provides instant pain and itch relief from minor: burns, cuts, scrapes and insect bites. Continuous, one touch spray for quick and easy application. Fragrance free, alcohol free, non-stinging and non-irritating. Leaves no sticky residue. Dermatologist tested.
I kept on spraying it, but I didn't feel it was relieving me a lot, because I was really really red, so I searched for something more powerful.
I remembered that I used to use BIAFINE
BIAFINE is a water-based emulsion formulated for the dressing and management of superficial wounds, minor abrasions, dermal ulcers, donor sites, 1st and 2nd degree burns, including sunburns, and radiation dermatitis. When applied properly to a wound, BIAFINE provides an optimum moist environment for the healing process and isolates the wound from harmful germs and other external contamination.
Since my skin was so hot, the cream was disappearing right away. It relieved me, but I was insisting on having another pharmacist opinion.
The second pharmacist showed me this magical after sun moisturizing milk that soothes and prolongs the tan by BIODERMA
Photoderm After-sun intensely rehydrates skin dried out by the sun, prepares it for further exposure and thereby optimises its natural anti-UV protection.
Its exclusive patented Cellular BIOprotection® complex provides optimum protection for the skin cells and prevents premature cutaneous ageing.
Enriched with emollient and soothing active ingredients, Photoderm After-sun decongests the skin after exposure and helps prolong the tan by curbing desquamation.
Photoderm After-sun’s light texture makes it easy to spread and leaves the skin feeling refreshed.
I really liked its soft texture, that is easy to spread and the smell reminded me of green tea, which is really relaxing. It's the product that suited my case the best, after one day my skin is relieved but still tanned
Stay Safe under the Sun everyone!
