London, Aug 23 — If you can follow pre-holiday skin care regime religiously, why not post-holiday too? Outdoor activities are fun, but they also leave behind sun tan and take away the glow. Let your tan stay, but don't compromise on the skin radiance.

Here are a few tips to help repair skin and get your glow back, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

- Scrub your body: Sunscreen protects skin from harmful sun rays, but can make the skin look dull. A gentle scrub can help in regaining the shine.

"The build up of sunscreen on our skin over the summer can lead to dull, lackluster skin and blocked pores," says Jill Zander, Founder of Jill Zander Skin Rejuvenation Clinic.

"Using a gentle body exfoliator that contains alpha-hydroxy acids or fruit enzymes will help purge product build-up and remove dead skin cells to pep-up bronzed limbs. Moisturise daily as this will help keep skin soft, smooth and glowing. A tan extender will also help boost glow," adds Zander.

- For radiant face: Sun exposure and long travelling hours can take away the good side of your skin. Use a refining serum on face to fresh it up.

"For sun parched, post-holiday skin, I recommend Rationale's Catalyst Skin refining serum for the face as it contains botanically derived alpha-hydroxy acids that get to work on the superficial and deeper layers of the skin without causing inflammation," Paul Banwell, Consultant Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, said.

"This helps freshen up the skin leaving it immediately resurfaced smooth and luminous," he added.

- Solve sun spots on face, body: Sun spots are common sight after a holiday. A laser treatment is the solution.

"The stimulating effect of the sun on melanin production can result in pigmentation and sun spots," Michaela Barker, Britain General Manager of Syneron-Candela, global aesthetic device company, said.

"Unwanted sun spots and pigmentation marks can permanently and comfortably be dissolved with Vbeam Perfecta laser treatment. The gentle targeted micro-pulse technology gently heats vessels for effective and consistent results," added Barker.

- Restore moisture: A facial can do the job well.

"Invest in a good facial mask as these are a great way to restore lost moisture back into the skin. Although the effects are temporary, the benefits are accumulative. Choose a mask that delivers a surge of moisture to plump and hydrate the skin," Zander said.
