Ski Skin Care Tip #1: Don’t Forget the Sunblock. The manifestations of UV skin damage include dark age spots, the early appearance of wrinkles, and skin cancer. Be sure to wear proper protective clothing and hats and apply a broad spectrum, water resistant, sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection with a minimum SPF 30 value. If you’re going to be on the slopes all day, reapply the sunscreen to exposed areas every few hours and apply a lip balm with SPF 30 as well. Remember, when you’re on the slopes, you’re getting extra sun exposure from the direct and reflected rays of the sun.
Ski Skin Care Tip #2: Don’t Forget Your Lips. Lips are especially sensitive to drying and sun damage. Frequently apply a lip balm with SPF 30 protection.
Ski Skin Care Tip #3: Gently Cleanse and Moisturize to Undo Environmental Damage. Hot showers and low humidity play havoc on your skin; causing chapping, redness, and dry patches. Use a fragrance free cleanser gentle cleanser and moisturize immediately after your shower or bath with a cream or oil.
