Reviving your sun-drenched skin

Reading time: 4 minutes

If you’re planning a late holiday or you’re back and want your skin to recover from its bout in the sun, Janey Lee Grace offers a few vital skin savers, plus some other products to help you gently unwind.

Protect from sunburn—naturally

Arbonne, FunSun Mineral Sunscreen Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30, $38.00/£32.00 (5 fl oz/148 mL)

This zinc oxide formula uses the latest skincare technology to help protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Now you can enjoy your time in the sun or water without burning or aging your skin. It’s free of chemical UV filters as well as surprisingly light and absorbs quickly so there’s no chalkiness or “opaque nose”!


Revitalize by glowing skin from within?

Rejuvenated, Collagen Shots, $57.50/£44.95 (30 servings)

Studies have shown that supplementing collagen levels by ingesting collagen can improve skin elasticity and promote the glowing radiance we want.

Rejuvenated collagen shots enhance your beauty from the inside out. Each dose contains 10,000 mg of marine extract hydrolyzed collagen, açai berry for antioxidants, zinc, vitamins B and C, and hyaluronic acid.

It’s all in just one daily drink! Simply add the powder to water to make a pleasant natural berry-flavored drink.


Relax and unwind

Unleash Your Sexy, Self-Love Votive Candles Gift Set, £19.50

At the end of a busy day, how about boosting your mood with a relaxing self-love candle set? Unleash Your Sexy is a brand founded to help women balance self-care with the demands of daily life.

Relax for up to 90 hours with these hand-poured, scented candles. 

The set includes Melt Down, with essential oil fragrance of geranium, lavender, sweet orange, lavandin, and ylang ylang; Love Affair, featuring spicy pink pepper, lime, lemon, cardamom, armoise and thyme, with undertones of lily, plum and musk to soothe and calm you; and the company’s signature S.E.X.Y. candle with notes of rum, grapefruit, lime, clove and amber for a unique, energizing and empowering scent.


Repair sensitive skin

Spa Marine Skincare, Intensive Recovery, £41.40 (30 mL)

This intensive anti-aging moisturizer is excellent for skin that is damaged, sensitive, acne-prone or dry. Its mixture of aromatic essence oils with liquid oxygen fights dryness and aids skin repair, recovery and hydration even if your skin is oily or you struggle with acne. 

It has some wonderful ingredients, including rosemary, sunflower and squalane oils, and one that caught my eye: laminaria algae. This algae is loaded with iodine, copper, zinc and other trace elements that stimulate new growth. Antioxidant polyphenols, vitamin E and C, beta-carotenes, lutein and lycopene defend cellular DNA. Then there are magnesium and potassium to promote cellular integrity and reduce inflammation.

All told, it’s a bit of a powerhouse! It’s buttery and absorbs well without leaving an oily feeling on the skin so you can feel silky smooth and luminous.


Refresh your aching feet 

Organic CBD Foot & Muscle Reviver, Beyond Organic Skincare, $54.38/£45.00

After a hard day, this foot and muscle balm is perfect for those looking for relief from aches and sore muscles or to ease a variety of skin conditions. All that and it’s a 100 percent organic, natural formula with 800 mg organic CBD (certified COSMOS Organic by the UK’s Soil Association). 

The benefits of CBD can be delivered where you need them most with shea and macadamia to moisturize, regenerate and soothe skin, and refreshing spearmint and rosemary extracts to stimulate blood circulation while relaxing nerve and muscle spasms.

Massage into the feet using small, firm circular motions, or, better yet, get someone to do it for you!


Raise a cuppa

Exmoor Tea Company, Groovy Green, £4.50 (box of 12 pyramids)

Exmoor Tea is totally committed to ethical and environmentally responsible production, right through from the growers it works with to its recyclable packaging and fully compostable and plastic-free tea pyramids (made from cornstarch).

The founder Rachel grows her own herbs for tisanes and forages for healing herbs, and each tea has been expertly blended and packaged in West Somerset.

This green tea with immune-boosting antioxidants is layered with jasmine flower buds that open overnight, releasing their scent into the tea. Come morning the buds are removed and the process is repeated several times—a true labor of love.


And go to bed

Silk’n, SonicYou Toothbrush, £129

Of course we want to clean teeth properly on vacation, but it’s such a pain to have to charge up electric toothbrushes. One charge of this newly launched electric toothbrush lasts 300 days—so no need to waste luggage space packing your toothbrush charger! It uses sonic vibration technology to remove plaque better than a manual toothbrush can.

Best of all, it’s lightweight and compact enough to be packed in your hand luggage.


Spritz away

AEOS, Refreshing Hydrating Mist, $65.01/£55.00 (3.4 fl oz/100 mL)

AEOS (Active Energised Organic Skincare) is known for its formulations that harness the power of plants while amplifying their living energy, along with cutting-edge technologies to create award-winning, superior skincare.

AEOS is a true alchemy of beauty using ancient techniques, spagyric tinctures of crystals and gems, and super-hydrating ingredients.

This highly concentrated rehydrating mist with active fruit and flower hydrosols is the answer to a dull complexion. As you close your eyes and spritz it on, it envelops you with fragrant hydration, illuminating your skin and lifting your spirits.
