During the winter months, our skin can become a little dehydrated and lose all its lustre, leaving you looking rather dry and pasty which is not a great combination, especially when you want to hit the slopes! To keep you feeling and looking your Ski Bunny best, I have suggested a few hints and tips and have recommended some products that I consider to be winter ‘essentials’ to take away with you.
It’s not always sunny on the slopes but don’t let that lead you into a false sense of security on the sunscreen front. It is absolutely vital, no matter what the weather may be doing outside, that you slap on the sunscreen and stay safe. Harmful UV rays can cause some serious sunburn so always be sure to pack an SPF 50 such as Clarins UV Plus Anti Pollution SPF 50 Day Cream It’s lightweight and perfect for everyday skiing
2. BB Cream
Radiance is key when out on the slopes so a heavy foundation just won’t do. Instead opt for a BB cream which will give you a light coverage, as well as a radiant glow. It will also even out your skin tone and keep your skin moisturised all day. I love Bobbi Brown’s BB cream. It offers both UVA and UVB protection with an SPF 35.
3. Waterproof Mascara
I don’t know many women who would forgo their mascara even when sporting the most amazing ski mask on the piste. Right now I’m loving Max Factor False Lash Effect waterproof mascara; it makes lashes look full and almost fake which is a godsend when you stop for a quick tipple on the way back down the mountain.
4. Tinted Lip Balm
Keeping lips well moisturised is essential for a hard day’s skiing, especially if you’re meeting peers for a bit of après ski after the slopes. I’m currently loving Bobbi Brown’s Extra Lip Tint. It’s lightweight, sheer and ultra-moisturising. It smoothes, softens and comforts lips instantly, promising fewer fine lines, fuller lips and zero flakes.
5. Hand Cream
It’s cold out there! Even though you’re wearing gloves most of the day, it pays to keep your hands soft and soothed. Keep some L’Occitane Sheer Butter Hand cream in your pocket and apply throughout the day whether you are lunching or on the ski lift.
6. Hair Mask
Keeping hair hydrated is a must if you want to avoid the frizz factor. Be sure to pack a deep conditioning hair mask such as Nutri-Thermique mask by Kerastase which deeply conditions and hydrates the hair from root to tip for super sexy Ski Bunny Locks.
