While sun protection is on the top of most people's lists, after-sun is sometimes overlooked. Applying this moisturising lotion can soothe sunburn and prevent peeling

Sunplay After Sun Aloe Vera Gel (HK$86.90/ 200g)

A thick layer of this natural remedy, made of aloe, soothes and cools parched arms and legs instantly and gently - and it's suitable for sensitive skin!

My Beauty Diary Aloe Vera Soothing Gel (HK$69/ 200ml)

This gel is a little bit sticky, but it really soothes the skin and feels cooling. It doesn't have a strong fragrance. And at this price, it's a real bargain.

Fueki Aloe Vera Hydrating Cream (HK$68/ 50g)

This is fragrance-free and really moisturises well - repairing sunburn without leaving any sticky feeling. It's also ideal for sensitive skin.

Clinique After Sun Rescue Balm (HK$190/ 150ml)

This takes the heat and sting out of my burns. The fact that it sinks in quickly and doesn't feel tacky on the skin makes it good to use on the face!

Palmer's Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel (HK$118/ 125g)

Instantly cooling, and instantly absorbed, leaving hot, tender skin relieved, calm and blessedly unsticky. Just what you'd hope for from the manufacturers of the world's best cocoa butter.
