The Exact Products to Use for Glowing Skin After You've Been in the Sun

The Exact Products to Use for Glowing Skin After You've Been in the Sun


When legendary oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau is your grandfather, you're in the water a lot: "I could swim before I could walk!" says Alexandra Cousteau, who spends much of the year circling the globe for her water-conservation nonprofit, Blue Legacy International[1]. "I went on my first ocean expedition with my dad when I was five months old, and my grandfather taught me to scuba dive at seven." A filmmaker, she's often shooting off the Pacific Coast or exploring the Sea of Cortez; as a result, her wind-battered skin needs serious moisture, along with protective anti-aging measures (sunscreen is an always). "I am careful about my face, arms, hands—basically all the places that make you look old!" she says.

Her ocean-friendly moisturizer: Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil, $53,

Her heavy-duty nourishing duo: "If I've been out too much in the sun, I love the Fresh Creme Ancienne eye cream [$110] and moisturizer [$140 for 1 oz.,[2]]—afterward I don't feel dry at all."

Her best imported moisturizer: "The women in Tahiti use a flower-derived monoi oil for everything—stretch marks, hair, body. If I'm diving, I coat my skin with it. It really sinks in and protects. It's also organic, so it's not going to kill the reef."

Her skin softener: Revitalizing Intensive Seed Oil Capsules ($98,[3])

Her morning antioxidants: "When my skin isn't quite as dry, I'll use a lightweight moisturizer like pomegranate-seed rose oil.Then I put on Skin Ceuticals C E Ferulic serum [$162,[4]] under SPF; vitamin C fights free radicals and minimizes freckling."
