Hmm, maybe Elisha Cuthebert could have used this regimen on her burnt skin! This pricey kit, the Kinerase PhotoFacials Sun Damage Reversal System ($100, sephora.com) is a three-step kit that’s loved by celebs like Taylor Swift and Brad Pitt. Use this for long-term skin care.  It includes a daily exfoliating cleanser with fruit enzymes and jojoba beads for smoother and brighter skin; a daily moisturizer with SPF 50, kinetin and peptides to soften fine lines, and lactic and kojic acids to improve skin tone; and a night moisturizer with skin-lightening agents to reduce sun spots along with kinetin and peptides to smooth wrinkles.

Coffee is good for much more than just perking you up each morning. The Alba Hawaiian Kona coffee after-sun lotion ($11.95, albabotanica.com) contains natural acids found in coffee, which soften skin and boost circulation. Vitamin E, shea butter, and tropical emollients including kukui oil moisturize and protect the skin.

  1. I use the spray solarcaine with aloe – it really numbs the burning and itching and helps prevent pealing because of the aloe. Plus it spays on so your not getting messy. And you can reach hard to get spots on your back in case you don’t have an aloe partner waiting around to slather you with aloes and lotions.

    I should write the advertisements for these people – but for real, it’s the best. I’m a redhead that burns and gets sun poisoning even when I where sunscreen and reapply every hour or so. So I’ve used just about everything you can think of to relieve my burns and blisters. (But whatever you do, don’t buy the BananaBoat Solarsooth spray, it burns like a mthr fcker for like 2 minutes before it starts to cool and that’s just counterproductive if you ask me).
