If you ignored the hype and got a burn, follow up with skin-saving products for a quick recover—and try not to let it happen again. “The lactic acid in plain yogurts impact the skin with calming and soothing benefits," says cosmetician Ole Henriksen, who works with Charlize Theron and Renee Zellweger. Leave it on for 30 minutes as a mask before taking a cool shower and patting dry. The Korres Yoghurt Instant Soothing Gel ($38; korresusa.com) is a good alternative if real yogurt makes you squeamish. Dosing skin with healing aloe vera gel three to four times a day will help you heal fast too! Check out our gallery for more sun damage prevention and repair tips.
