Sun exposure can leave your skin looking dry, tight and distressed. While tanned skin can look beautiful, too much sun exposure can strip the skin of essential oils and moisture.

To remedy this, a homemade post-sun moisturizing mask can be a nourishing and soothing solution.

Using natural ingredients, you can create a hydrating mask that helps restore your skin's vitality and radiance.

In this article, we will explore the benefits of a homemade face mask and give you a simple recipe that you can try.

Recipe for a homemade mask for hydration after exposure to the sun


  • 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel: Known for its soothing and moisturizing properties, aloe vera helps heal sunburns and rejuvenate the skin.
  • 1 tablespoon of yogurt: Rich in lactic acid, yogurt gently exfoliates and nourishes dry skin.
  • 1 teaspoon honey: An excellent moisturizer, honey helps retain moisture and has antibacterial properties.
  • 1 teaspoon of cucumber juice: Cucumber cools and soothes the skin, adding a refreshing touch.

Instructions for use:

  • Mix the ingredients: Combine the aloe vera gel, yogurt, honey and cucumber juice in a small bowl. Blend until a smooth texture is obtained.
  • Cleanse your face: Before applying the mask, clean your face to remove any makeup or impurities.
  • Apply the mask: Using your fingers or a brush, spread the mask evenly over your face, avoiding the eye area.
  • Relax: Leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes, allowing the ingredients to penetrate and hydrate your skin.
  • Rinse off : Gently rinse off the mask with lukewarm water and then dry your face with a soft towel.
  • Moisturize : Follow up with your favorite moisturizer to lock in hydration.

In a few words

A homemade mask for hydration after exposure to the sun is not only a natural and economical solution but also a pleasant way to pamper yourself. Using ingredients like aloe vera, yogurt, honey, and cucumber, you can restore your skin's moisture and relieve discomfort from sun exposure.

Remember, while a homemade mask can provide nourishing after-sun care, prevention is always the best approach. Always wear sunscreen, stay in the shade during peak hours and wear protective clothing to minimize sun damage. But when you need that extra care, this homemade mask can be a soothing treatment for your skin.
