Apply a milk based moisturiser of F30 or higher. It is important that you have protection from UVA and UVB.
Gradually reintroduce your usual skin products. Remember that the new skin is delicate and may be sensitive to some ingredients. Mineral based makeup will allow the skin to breath.

Mid Day

Reapply your sunscreen moisturiser if the day is hot or you have been sweating.

Before Bed

Apply hydrocortisone cream if itchy the previous night or the redness is still a problem. Do not use hydrocortisone cream for more than four weeks unless advised differently.
