Looking good on the slopes is a must. Even if you’re a terrible skier, you should always look fabulous.The cold weather and high altitude can leave skin flaky and dry, hair brittle and lips cracked.
Here are a few of my must have picks to be a beautiful ski bum this winter.
JF Aesthetic Smooth Shade
You need sun protection in the sizzling summer heat as well as in the freezing cold. Just because you may not experience the redness of a sunburn, doesn’t mean the rays aren’t aging your skin.
Before hitting the slopes this winter, make sure to protect your skin with
JF Aesthetic Smooth Shade, ($75). Created by board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of Chicago’s Few Institute, Julius Few, MD, this sunscreen provides a broad-spectrum of sun protection with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Smooth Shade also acts as a primer, prepping skin for flawless makeup application and gives a slight tint to even out skin tone and texture, while also helping restore elasticity and radiance.
OK, so this isn’t a beauty product but it sure is beautiful. Make sure to hit the slopes with these stylish Taylor headphones by Frends, ($199). They’re made from leather and created to mimic jewelry and come in sliver, gold or rose gold. The sound is amazing and the leather will help keep ears warm while your skiing or snowboarding. The best part is you can also take phone calls with them all by a click of a button.
Illume Eternal Nomad
Even though you will be in a wonderland of snow, you can still smell like an exotic island. Illume Eternal Nomad Mediterranean body butter, ($16) is thick, creamy and helps add softness to dry wintery skin. It’s made from cocoa butter, illipe, and includes vitamins A, D, and E. The smell is so intoxicating and has been my favorite moisturizer this winter.
Natura Bisse Ceutical Lip Recovery Balm
Natura Bisse Ceutical Lip Recovery Balm ($65), is a rich creamy balm that instantly melts on your lips. It provides them with a soothing sensation while restoring their youthful, plump and healthy appearance. This is a great barrier against cold winds before going skiing.
Natura Bissé’s Rose Mosqueta Oil
Get your dry hair, dry cuticles and dry anything in shape with Natura Bissé’s Rose Mosqueta Oil, ($55). This multipurpose regenerating oil intensely hydrates anything from split ends to dry skin. Use before and after playing in the cold snowy weather.
