Ingredients Your Skin Will Love: Cucumber, Peppermint & Aloe Vera

Which We Are Feel Good Inc. products will I find Cucumber, Peppermint and Aloe Vera Juice in, you might ask? Our all new, After Sun Cooling Lotion, that’s where! 

Made for those of us who have had a little too much fun in the sun, our After Sun Cooling Lotion is the perfect post-sun lotion to cool and soothe your skin. 

It's lightweight and non-greasy, meaning it absorbs quickly and allows heat to escape while replenishing lost moisture after sun exposure. It's enriched with natural emollients from Coconut Oil and antioxidants from Aloe Vera to help repair sun damage and reduce skin irritation. Below we take a look at the other skin-loving ingredients that you'll find in this cooling cutie.

Cucumber

Not only is the humble Cucumber a refreshing (and delicious) part of a summer salad, it’s also just as refreshing when applied to the skin! Studies have shown that Cucumber provides a soothing effect against skin irritations and reduces swelling. 

“Cucumbers contain flavonoids and antioxidants that help reduce swelling, redness, irritation and shrink blood vessels to reduce the appearance of puffy eyes and the effects of too much sun,” commented Dr Scott McGregor. 

Because Cucumber's fragrant components rarely cause sensitising to the skin, Cucumber is the perfect addition to create a refreshing scent for our After Sun Cooling Lotion with minimal chance of reaction (*reminder, it's important to always patch test when trying new products).



Peppermint

As well as providing a blast of freshness, some studies have shown that Peppermint also contains antibacterial and antiviral properties. It has the ability to soothe itching and the menthol content provides a cooling effect which can assist in reducing redness, irritation and inflammation - perfect after a long day out in the sun!

“One of the greatest benefits of adding Peppermint to our After Sun is the cooling effect it provides, which can be extremely refreshing after being in the heat all day. Pop your After Sun Cooling Lotion in the fridge for the ultimate cooling effect.”

Aloe Vera Juice

Of course then there is Aloe Vera Juice. Used for centuries for it’s healing properties, Aloe Vera has potent anti-inflammatory action to help calm and soothe stressed skin.
