Try These Tips to Keep Your Skin Protected

1. Moisturize Well Before Hitting the Slopes

The rain has finally started pouring, which means snow enthusiasts across the country can rejoice knowing there are snow-capped mountains waiting for them! It’s a wonderful way to make the most out of the winter season, but have you ever thought of how UV-reflective snow and cold, dry weather can affect your complexion?

No need to worry! We’ve got you covered with these expert-approved tips for a healthy, hydrated and glowing face as you frolic in the frost! Scroll on to learn more!

1. Moisturize well before hitting the slopes

It’s no surprise that one of the most notable effects of higher elevation, less moisture and cold winds is that it dries out your skin. To combat this, opt for a rich moisturizing formula to seal in hydration before you embark on your winter adventures. 

Our picks:

2. Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Sunscreen!

2. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!

The landscape may look ultra-dreamy all covered in white, but snow’s crystal milky color also makes it highly reflective, exposing your skin to more UV rays. Stay protected from damaging free radicals, premature photoaging and sunburn with a good broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF30, if not more, and remember to re-apply often.

Our picks:
