If after sun exposure the usual after-sun products don't help, it's time to get the "cosmetic artillery" with panthenol! For recovery from sunburn, this component is indispensable, and it is better to always keep it close at hand on vacation.
1. Foam "Bepantol", Bayer
One of the most popular lines with a panthenol derivative is dexpanthenol. Bayer has creams, gels, emulsions and ointments under the same name, but we chose the foam. A lightweight texture with a cooling effect - ideal for a beach holiday when hot and irritated skin does not want to be overloaded with heavy and oily products. "Bepantol" copes well not only with sunburn, but also with any kind of irritation, including insect bites and abrasions. It is applied to the damaged area of the skin from a distance of 5 cm, absorbs quickly and also acts quickly.
2. Cream "Panthenol Forte 9%", Libre Derm
Cream with panthenol in the highest concentration - 9%! In other cosmetic and even pharmaceutical products, it reaches a maximum of 7%, and more often 5%. Helps in the most difficult cases: severe sun and normal burns, abrasions, cuts, cracks and skin irritations. Relieves inflammation and redness, accelerates the processes of tissue repair and regeneration. It should be applied locally to damaged areas. Suitable for use on the body, face and even nipples if you are a nursing mother! It contains no dyes, fragrances and other harmful chemicals.
3. Milk universal for the body "Panthenol 5%", Vailayn
Panetnol at a concentration of 5% is the "golden mean", when after sunburn the skin turns slightly red, but it has not yet come to a serious sunburn. The product also contains vitamin F and allantoin - a component with wound healing and regenerating effects. The texture of the milk is light, absorbed quickly without leaving a greasy film and a sticky feeling.
4. Body milk "Panthenol EVO", EVO Laboratories
This light moisturizing milk contains panthenol at a concentration of 2%. For the treatment and recovery of sunburn this is not enough, but in the format of daily care for sensitive and irritation-prone skin, it is 100% suitable! Helps maintain the required level of moisture in the epidermis and reduces the reaction to chlorinated and sea water, as well as chapping.
5. Sunscreen milk for babies SPF 50, Sanosan Baby
A must-have tool if you are going on vacation with your child. In addition to a powerful sunscreen filter of 50 units, the milk contains regenerating and moisturizing ingredients - aloe vera, panthenol and vitamin E. If a child has sensitive and dry skin, this is the best option! It is absorbed quickly, does not wash off after swimming in the sea and, like all baby products, does not contain dyes or preservatives.
6. Body cream SOS, Nivea
If you are looking for a cream for the driest and most dehydrated skin of the body, then it is in front of you! It contains a powerful complex of moisturizing and nourishing ingredients, including panthenol. It absorbs well, but does not have a waterproof effect, therefore, in a beach holiday, it is best applied at night. And, in order not to overload the skin, we advise you to do this locally only on the driest parts of the body that need emergency nutrition.
7. Gel-foam for washing Kora Phytocosmetics
With this product, even hard tap water is not scary for you - after washing, the feeling of tightness and dryness will not arise. In its composition, you guessed it, all the same panthenol, which accelerates regeneration. Ideal for cleansing your face if you've been tanning all day, or if you just have sensitive skin prone to irritation. The foam gel foams well and gently removes any kind of dirt, leaving the pores clean.
8. Mask for restoring damaged hair Visible Repair, Londa Professional
Panthenol is effective not only in face and body care products, but also in hair lines. The principle of action is the same - restoration and hydration! Mask with panthenol Visible Repair restores dull and dry strands, making them smoother, more manageable and elastic. Suitable for both natural and colored hair.
