Sun burnt skin can be really painful and it doesn’t take much exposure to the sun to feel tender, burnt and red. AfterBurn Sunburn Rescue Gel could be the answer.
AfterBurn Sunburn Rescue Gel claims to be clinically proven to treat and repair sun damaged skin unlike a tradition ‘aftersun’ product which simply moisturises.
The gel has an osmotic action that draws water from deep in the skin (the dermis) to the surface (the epidermis) helping to rehydrate and treat sun damaged skin.
An amazing 40% of us still use below the recommended minimum sun protection factor and 43% of us only use sun protection abroad. No wonder that 9 out of 10 people have been experienced painful sunburn by overexposure to UV rays.
The gel is odourless, non sticky, doesn’t stain and is rapidly absorbed and acts quickly on the skin. The product contains no alcohol, added preservatives or colourings.
It is available from pharmacies and leading retailers and costs £9.99 for 75g.
