An Easy Way to Instantly Soothe Sunburn Tonight
There's nothing like waking up on Sunday morning knowing you still have two full days of the long weekend left. This probably means that between today and your day off tomorrow, you'll sepnd as many sun-drunk hours outside as possible to soak up what's left of summer. And though we're sure (hint, hint) that you're using plenty of sunscreen while you're out there, even the most diligent of sunscreen wearers will inevitably miss a patch or two of skin—or (oops) just forget to reapply.
So to soothe sunburnt areas tonight, stock up on L'Occitane's latest cooling gel cream. The Frisson Verbana Gel is made with a combo of ingredients that instantly refresh and relieve tired and sensitive skin from over-exposure to the sun. The round metal applicator makes it easy to smooth over your body and feels especially good if you leave it in the fridge for a few minutes before using it. It's meant for legs and feet, but I found that it practically works anywhere. Plus, it smells like fresh verbana leaves from Provence, which isn't too shabby of a place to daydream about as you're winding down for the night.
