We hate to be the ones to make you take off your sun-soaked sunglasses, but spring break doesn’t last forever. Aside from the memories, once you complete your return trip the only remnants of all the fun you had in paradise are the toll your good time has taken on your skin and hair. Luckily, common spring break beauty mishaps can be fixed. We’ve compiled a helpful lineup of products to heal any skin and hair slip-ups that may have made their way home with you.
1. Korres Yoghurt Cooling Gel
Skin is the number one casualty of a spring break beach trip. If you’ve managed to return home with q red, inflamed, and flaking complexion as your only souvenir, keeping your skin moisturized—along with aspirin or ibuprofen—is the major key to quickly healing a sunburn. Slather on Korres’ rich cream, which not only hydrates, but cools skin to relieve and soothe heat and stinging from getting too much sun.

2. Shiseido Sun Protection Lip Treatment SPF 36
Protecting your lips from potent UV rays is just as important as the rest of your body. If you neglected to give your pout some TLC while you were sipping cocktails on the beach, you’re probably paying for it now with dehydrated, peeling lips. Regularly apply a moisturizing lip balm with SPF infused in its formula throughout the day, to nourish them back to health and prevent further damage.
Shiseido | $22
3. Ouai Clean Shampoo
Chlorine is a blonde’s greatest nemesis. Too much time in the pools that have the chemical disinfectant in its water can leave flaxen hair with a green tinge and generally strip hair of its natural oils. To get rid of the chemical build up and residue, wash hair with a detoxifyng shampoo and conditioner to refresh your mane’s color and texture.
Available at Ouai | $28
4. Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Defense SPF 30
Applying sunscreen daily is important on or off the resort. Once you’re back to the daily grind, maintain the routine of using SPF regularly to protect your skin from current and future UV damage. If you returned from your vacation sunburned, opt for a gentle, natural formula like Drunk Elephant’s that won’t further irritate inflamed skin.
