Head for Heights: Best Skincare Products for Skiing

Tip 1: Moisturise

In winter, there’s a risk of your skin drying out and when you’re faced with high altitudes, sub-zero temperatures and blazing sun while skiing, this risk is even higher. Therefore, it is vital that you keep skin hydrated in the bitter cold weather; our HYDRA-ÉCLAT DAILY CARE is perfect for boosting skin’s moisture, enriched with pastel rose cells that provide intense hydration. If fierce winds have caused your complexion to lose its natural lustre, this moisturiser is ideal because it contains black rose, which works to replenish dull skin and restore luminosity. To keep skin hydrated throughout the day and avoid it from flaking, we also recommend putting a few drops of HYDRA-ÉCLAT SERUM into your foundation.

Tip 2: Sun Protection

While Kim Kardashian may have caused the thankfully short-lived craze for fake ski tan lines a few years back, the majority of us do not want to sport goggle tan lines on our ski trip. So, to avoid them, make sure to put on plenty of sunscreen before hitting the slopes. On top of this, wear an SPF foundation, such as our COVER-EXPERT SPF15, which not only offers great coverage, but also protection from the sun’s harsh rays.

Tip 3: Après-Ski Pampering

After a gruelling day skiing, your aching muscles are no doubt in need of some TLC and the same goes for your skin. Massage our luxurious BAUME DE ROSE body cream all over and wake up to silky smooth, intensely nourished skin. Apply BAUME DE ROSE hand cream every morning and evening to ensure hands stay supple and protected inside your ski gloves.

Tip 4: Have a facial

For an evening of pampering, why not treat yourself to a facial using our HYDRA-ÉCLAT MASK? It rescues and revives even the most dry and tired skin and gives complexions an instant, radiant boost.

Tip 5: Don’t forget lips

Don’t run the risk of cracked, dry lips on the piste. Our award-winning BAUME DE ROSE lip care will protect lips from nature’s strong forces with its unique blend of rose flower essential wax and pastel oil, conditioning shea butter, antioxidant vitamin E, and SPF 15. For a hint of tint, cloak lips with our pigmented BAUME DE ROSE NUTRI-COULEUR, which comes in six irresistible shades.

Tip 6: Go for Glow

There’s little point covering yourself in a face full of makeup before a day of skiing as you will inevitably find that by the end of it, it has come off. More to the point, wearing makeup while exercising is quite simply bad for your skin. In order to keep yourself looking alpine fresh throughout the day, we recommend our CELLULAROSE BRIGHTENING CC SERUM. The perfect makeup and skincare hybrid, our bestselling serum contains vitamin E to blur imperfections, and brighten and moisturise skin, while light-reflecting prisms give complexions a radiant glow. Opt for shade No.4 Sunny Flash for a natural bronzed effect that will make your complexion the envy of the slopes.
