Now that the rain’s mostly gone, everyone’s been heading out and about and having fun under the sun. But with the heat amped up, some of us just cannot stand the summer blaze—redness, sunburn, extra oil and sweat being some of the things that we wish we could do without.
To remedy some of these, some ditch their usual skincare products during the day to lessen the layers that make their skin feel stuffy and oily. And while regular and proper sunscreen application is key, not all of us can avoid the sun’s power, leaving us with red and irritated skin that’s difficult to deal with.
With our skin in need of some saving, soothing gels may be the best product to make a comeback in your daily routine. Soothing gels are known for their lightweight and refreshing consistency while also relieving irritation and boosting moisture. But what’s great about it is that there are now a variety of different types and ingredients that make soothing gels a worthy replacement for some of your face—and body—products for the summer time. Scroll down to see 8 different soothing gels to help calm and enhance your skin this summer!
