Hey, we don't blame you for relaxing oceanside in the sand, but if you laid out sans UVA and UVB protection, then your skin is suffering at the helms of the sun's rays — which is almost sure to leave a mark. To help ease the burn, dermatologist Dr. Amy Wechsler advocates one surprisingly natural ingredient to treat the body. "Whole milk contains proteins and is a super-soother for sunburn and other skin irritations," she advises. For all-over body care, Kate Somerville's Goat Milk Body Lotion ($32) is up for the job.
Because facial skin is more prone to breakouts, it's better to remedy burns with a product targeted specifically for upper-neck use. For this, Wechsler supports another refrigerator-stocked ingredient. "Cucumbers contain Vitamin C and Caffeic Acid, two antioxidants," she says, "that when applied to the skin, help sun damage." Pure + Simple's Calming Cucumber Mask ($21.46) is sure to do the trick.
