We asked The Setai Miami Beach’s Spa Director Laura Santiago for her 5 top tips on replenishing and restoring the skin after a wonderful summer of sunshine so that we can all keep our glows, come rain or shine this September
After Sun Moisturiser
Primarily, it supplies your skin with anti-oxidants to fight any free radicals that may have been induced by UV exposure. By using after sun you replace lost moisture from your skin’s surface. After-sun moisturiser will nourish all types of skin with all the nutrients it needs to recover from the effects of UV rays. We recommend the After-Sun Moisturiser by Hampton Sun, which makes the body feel clean, cool and fresh, with a rejuvenating pick-me-up scent. With a blend of natural ingredients, emblica fruit extract, aloe, almond oil, walnut oil, jojoba oil, cocoa butter, tea tree oil, green tea oil, and chamomile. This unique formula helps prolong a beautiful tan and can be used as a daily moisturiser.
Green Tea Body Oil
When skin endures a strong tan, freckles due to sun or heat exposure, dry and dark patches, acne breakouts; it can be corrected when green tea oil is used. The reason behind its potency is the anti-oxidant property of green tea oil. Green tea oil with its essential anti-oxidant properties helps in correcting the signs, aiding the skin to revert to a better and younger looking skin. Green tea gives a natural lift to the skin with an additional dose of radiance.
Cucumber Juice or Fresh Cucumber Slices to the skin
Cucumber has a cooling effect and the Vitamin C present in cucumber will also help to keep the skin moisturised.
Cocoa butter may actually possess qualities that go beyond aroma. It relieves dry skin after sun and wind exposure or even just when the central heating is cranked up and has also been shown to penetrate deep into the skin, allowing it to moisturise beyond just the top layer.
Almond oil has emollient properties, which gives it the ability to rejuvenate and soften the skin. Continuous application of almond oil helps to even out the skin tone, improve the complexion and slow down the skin’s aging process.
