You’re probably programmed to reach for skin-soothing ingredients like aloe vera and menthol, but mixing those popular sunburn remedies with super-hydrating rose oil will help further alleviate your painful burn. Picking up a bottle of Mario Badescu’s After Sun Cooling Gel (a non-greasy gel made with rosemary oil, aloe vera, and rose hip extract) will help your skin forgive you after spending too much time under the sun.
