How To Look Great On The Slopes
Achieving a perfect complexion is by no means an easy task, especially in colder climates or during certain activities. However there are things we can implement in to our routine to save our skin while on the slopes.
One venturing on a skiing holiday one must remember that the most crucial thing to do is to look after and maintain the skin. The intense cold can wreak havoc and you may find that your out of balance weeks after you return.
Make sure the skin is nourished with a good nourishing hydrating cream. Opt for added anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients to keep the redness and dryness at bay. Green tea, Oat meal and chamomile are a great and will keep the skin calm and also nourished.
While you may not be in a hot climate you still need to use a good SPF for maximum protection as you’re just as much at risk as if you were sun bathing. UV rays are reflected off of the snow and can increase your chances of getting sunburned; you’re already contending with the elements, extra redness isn’t good. Look for maximum protection SPF 30 or higher, ideally a 50 with the added extras of being a full shield product.
Though the cold may drain colour from the skin you can still look glamorous and a beckon of vibrancy on the slopes. Mattes and nude lips are a no no. instead ops for a bright, hydrating and nourishing lip stick. Oh and always you make sure to slather your lips in lots of balm as often as you can, always before bed.
If you need to go the extra makeup mile use a very hydrating foundation or tinted/ BB cream to add gentle colour to the face, be sure to set lightly with powder to ensure the bases longevity.
Lastly and most importantly enjoy yourself and have fun! Nothing gives more of a glow then the release of endorphins. ;)
