February is one of the most popular times of year to go skiing.
The snow is soft and powdery, the slopes are less crowded than they were at Christmas, the sun is out for longer, and let’s face it, we all need a little après-ski at the end of a long, dark winter.
As well as packing thermal layers, soft socks, the latest jacket and goggles, it is also vital to ensure you have your beauty regime sorted.
While it is totally exhilarating to spend hours on the slopes, it is all too easy to pay more attention to your speed than your skin, something you might regret when you return home.
A quick shop at Pure-Beauty will keep your skin protected from cold winds, UV exposure and prevent redness and irritation when you have been out longer than planned. Our Dermalogica products are perfect for the harsh elements and we think you will so impressed with the results, you will stick with them on your return.
It is highly likely that a full on day skiing will leave your skin feeling drier, redder and a little more sensitive than usual. To deal with the elements we suggest taking the Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution away with you. This amazingly rich, creamy cleanser nourishes chapped, dry skin while clearing away the impurities from a day on the slopes. Using morning and night while away will leave your skin feeling refreshed, clean, soft and supple. We told you it was good!
