There’s the varying altitude, harsh wind and perhaps snow and rain. To protect your skin, extremities, and even hair from damage, continue reading for everything you need to put in your beauty bag.
Screen That Sun
It is unthinkable that one could get sunburned in the winter but it happens. Those beautiful sun rays reflect off of that perfect white snow, thus exposing you to harmful UVA/UVB rays. So, when preparing to glide down those slopes, put on your sunscreen and don’t forget to pay close attention to your nose and lips. Remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours. You don’t want to ruin your winter ski trip with icky sunburn.
