Picture this scenario: It’s a couple days into your vacation, and you’re relaxing on the beach or by the pool. The sun is out in full force. The day is fabulous and so is your mood. You’ve earned this.
You’re decked out in a new bathing suit and sun hat, maybe some amazing shades. All is going well, until you set out to get ready for a scrumptious dinner. And that’s when you notice it.
Unsightly little red bumps are covering your body. They sting, prickle, and itch by turns, ruining your mood as well as your look.
Have you ever experienced this? Getting a heat rash, also known as prickly heat, can put a serious damper on your holiday or summertime escapades.
That’s why it’s important to take action to prevent this uncomfortable and ugly rash from the beginning of your sun exposure. And Natural Tone Organic Skincare can help.
Our natural sunscreens with organic ingredients provide superior protection without the harsh chemicals of other products. What’s more, they allow skin to breathe, so that you can enjoy the sun without succumbing to prickly heat rash.
Let’s take a look at what makes natural sunscreen such a great ally in the fight against this scourge, plus a few tips on keeping your skin bump-free during your fun in the sun.
First, think about the name: prickly heat rash. What’s at the root of this disagreeable phenomenon? You guessed it — heat. When skin gets overheated, it perspires, and it can react with itchy red blotches and bumps.
Waterproof and sweat-proof sun products and other “sunblocks” may have a petroleum base that smothers this skin. Thick, dense oils, such as mineral oil, also can clog the pores and block the skin. These heavy products don’t allow the skin to breathe.
The result? Your skin can overheat all too quickly.
Natural sunscreens, on the other hand, don’t contain these waxy, smothering ingredients. They allow your skin to function naturally, helping it to maintain its balance and remain below that critical damaging temperature.
Opting for a natural sunscreen from Natural Tone Organic Skincare is kind to the planet —our biodegradable formula is reef-safe, cruelty-free, and vegan. And it’s also kind to your skin. Our non-nano zinc oxide mineral sunscreen is paraben-free and specially formulated to be gentle on your body.
So that your skin can do what it’s made to do and regulate your temperature, while you enjoy the sunshine and develop a naturally beautiful tan without worrying about prickly heat rash. Because we’re committed to supporting a toxin-free lifestyle and helping you live in your healthiest, most beautiful skin possible.
Note that this unpleasant rash can take a few days to show up, so taking precautions from the beginning – even before any signs of inflammation develop – is crucial.
And never fear: Our natural sunscreens offer water-resistant, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, so you can safeguard your skin without smothering it.
In addition to using a natural sunscreen, there are some other steps you can take to help your skin maintain a healthy temperature and avoid a rash:
Take frequent shade breaks to give your skin a chance to recover. This is especially important during the hottest times of day and when the sun is strongest. Use the break to reapply your sunscreen and hydrate.
Cool down in the water often. Just be sure to reapply your sunscreen after each swim!
Once you’re out of the sun and your skin is cooled and dried, follow up with a natural aloe moisturizer to help your skin heal and re-moisturize after the sun exposure.

I discovered this product many years ago when it was little known. I arrived at my holiday in Spain…….we were covered in sunscreen (but the water-resistant type). We popped down to the pool. We only just began to step into the lovely chlorine/cool water…..Immediately my legs started to be painful/went bright red & blotchy! I was so upset & the pain was almost burning me! My husband was ok, but it’s known men have stronger/thicker skin than us females………A rep for this company was in the sunbathing area advertising their blog about this product! My husband & I were definitely interested – by this time he was getting uncomfortable too…..It All made sooo much sense! Chemicals v Sun Rays & Chlorine?! Really what were we thinking! That was it – we are now Sold! We use Nothing else – don’t worry about waterproof – just reapply – your sun drying out skin will welcome the moisture & the kind protection! We have Never Burnt & we Both are true sun seekers!
After suffering prickly heat for years I discovered these products & they are truly amazing. I never use anything else. I’ve used them for a number of years & can’t recommend them highly enough.
I’ve been using Natural Tone products for many years however one year I decided to use another well known brand and I came out in the most awful prickly heat which necessitated going to the pharmacy for medication so I vowed from then on that I’d never use any other product as I’ve never had any issues when doing so.
Whilst I’ve not been abroad for a couple of years, I use the products in the UK and especially love the tan enhancing oil for my legs. The Aloe Vera After Sun is so soothing and light.
I always suffered from prickly heat – then my daughter told me about Suncare Central and since then I have used it and have never had prickly heat since. I now use all the range, from the body wash, shampoo & conditioner, and the Suncream, Aloe After Sun, and the cooling gel when needed. It’s the best suncare range out there – but particularly for children and sun sensitive people like myself. Bonus is the most deep, long-lasting tan – when used as directed.
I have had prickly heat and it was the most awful thing. It ruined my holiday. Luckily while on holiday in Cyprus a few years a lady recommend Natural Tone products. I haven’t looked back. The Recovery Gel worked well for the nights and the moisturiser helped my skin.
It’s been a few years and I love your products and your sun tan lotions. I know I can rely on them and so far haven’t had prickly heat since. Infact many of my family members have also been converted as they have suffered from heat rash. Thank you for your amazing natural products.
I suffered years of miserable holidays due to prickly heat until a rep in majorca pointed me to your products. Wow never an itchy spot since, its amazing sunscreen. Thankyou
I was a sufferer for many years and came across SunCare Central while holidaying in Lanzarote. Since then, I have been using suncare central products for years and can testify these products really helped to significantly reduce if not clear my horrid heat rash. Once I have a good base tan which I build slowly, I am able to increase the amount of time I can spend in the sun, however I never sit out in mid day sun and am careful when when very hot. I also find that sea water and avoiding certain foods helps.
