Looking for a face wash for sun tanned, burned and dehydrated skin? Is your skin feeling dry, dehydrated, and sensitive, and looking burned or tanned due to frequent sun exposure? Does the skin feel overheated / warm with a dull and lusterless look?
Skin that has frequent sun exposure, especially between 9 am – 3 pm, tends to accumulate a high amount of solar energy. This aggravates Pitta locally in the skin and also dehydrates the top layers of skin which lose skin moisture due to the drying effects of the Sun. Usually, Pitta dominant skin is oily. But due to the localized drying effect of the sun, in sun tanned skin we see high heat and dryness. So skin feels flaky, looks dull, feels rough, and is also sensitized and tanned or burned.
Suntanned dehydrated skin has to be treated with care. We must work on bringing down the aggravated heat in the skin. We must also balance localized dryness in the skin and then work on restoring the skin’s even tone and complexion. The face wash that we use must be mild and should not strip tanned skin further of its protective oils. Yet it should be effective and ensure that the Srotas are unclogged and thermal exchange is done properly.
If sun tanned skin is not taken care of, it tends to age prematurely and also develop a high degree of sensitivity resulting in quicker reactions and mild inflammations. Regular Face washes sold for tanned and sun burned skin are full of clogging synthetics and do not address the specific needs of skin correctly.
The Krya After Sun Face wash – for tanned, sunburned, dehydrated skin
The Krya After Sun face wash is a carefully formulated Ayurvedic choornam (herbal powder). We make this from a chosen selection of 26 Ayurvedic herbs, grains, and clays. Each herb is carefully chosen, individually processed, and then blended together with the other herbs.
For tanned, dehydrated, and burned facial skin we choose Pitta balancing, varnya (lustre and complexion improving), and soothing Ayurvedic herbs for our face wash. These herbs include Rose Petal, Indian sarsaparilla, Manjishta, Shatavari, Lodhra, Shirisha bark, and Udumbura. We list 100% of what goes into our formulation – no other chemicals, extracts, fillers, preservatives, or fragrances go into our product apart from these herbs.
The Krya After Sun face wash is extremely cooling, gentle, and soothing on tanned, sunburned and dehydrated skin. It cleanses the skin very gently, leaving dry, tanned, sunburned skin feeling better and more soothed. With regular use of this product and other After sun products, users report that skin feels more nourished, the complexion is even and skin sensitivity and redness are controlled.
