Soothing products for stressed or sensitive skin 

If you've got a sunburn, slather yourself in coconut oil. "Coconut oil is the single most beneficial product you can put on your body," according to Karen Adjmi, co-owner of Earthsavers (Lakeside Shopping Center Annex, 3301 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 504-835-0225; 3414 Hwy. 190, Mandeville, 985-674-1133; 5501 Magazine St., 504-899-8555; www.earthsaversonline.com). "You can use it head to toe, as a hair conditioner. ... It's antibacterial and antiviral. We produce our version ourselves because it was hard for me to find any as pure as this one." Organic virgin coconut oil, $26.95 for 8 ounces.
Rich in Vitamin E and aloe vera, Barrier Gel is ideal for people undergoing peels or microdermabrasion — anything that disrupts the skin's barrier function. "This heals your skin quickly," Adjmi says. Barrier Gel, $52.95 at Earthsavers.
Calendula Essential Hydrating cream has aloe vera and calendula, an herb used for healing wounds, making it appropriate for very dry or sensitive skin, $58 at Woodhouse Day Spa (4030 Canal St., 504-482-6652; www.neworleans.woodhouse-spas.com).
