With a heatwave approaching and temperatures of 34°C expected across the UK over the next few days, you’ll want to make sure you’re got everything you need to see you through the hot weather. 
7 Cooling After Sun Products To Take The Sting Out Of Your Sunburn
We’ve got you covered with big sun hats for women, cool linen shirts for men, the best sustainable swimwear for everyone and some super stylish sunglasses. But you also need to be thinking about protection.
When it comes to suncream, we’ve honestly reviewed seven different SPF 30 creams. But sometimes, despite our best efforts, the biggest takeaway from a weekend of heat is sunburn.[Read More: You’re Spreading Sun Cream Too Thinly: Follow The Teaspoon Rule To Protect Your Skin]
Rather than endure the pain of inflamed skin that’s sensitive to the touch, you can soothe and relieve the sting with some after sun – and no, we’re not talking Sunday night reality telly, here.
Dr Anjali Mahto, consultant dermatologist and author of The Skincare Bible, tells HuffPost UK what to look out for in an effective after sun formula. “The go-to ingredients are the somewhat obvious – aloe vera and cucumber – but I also recommend rose water, calamine and lanolin balm,” she says.
“Aloe vera not only has a cooling effect on the skin but also acts as an anti-inflammatory.” And to avoid further irritating skin, be wary of creams containing petroleum, benzocaine or lidocaine, says Dr Mahto.
We’ve rounded up our favourite aftersun lotions, gels and creams to make managing the heatwave that little bit easier.BIODERMA Photoderm Après-Soleil Refreshing After-Sun Milk, Feel Unique, £11.80Not only does this after-sun milk soothe and hydrate over-exposed skin, it also promises to prolong your tan once the burn fades. The lightweight lotion means there’s no sticky feeling or time spent painstakingly rubbing it into limbs either. And it’s suitable for children, too.

Shop it now. Ultrasun After Sun, Superdrug, £12.79Immediately cooling, this gel gives an instant hit of moisture to parched skin and the texture is non-greasy so it won’t rub off onto bed sheets or pyjamas anytime soon.
