Are you leaving soon to stay in the mountains and want to slip into your vanity the essential care to protect your skin as well as that of your whole family in a safe and optimal way? You’re in the right place! In winter stay in the mountains, two major enemies threaten the skin: the cold and the sun. Discover all our tips on how to protect your skin optimally while enjoying your holiday in the snow.
Protect your skin from the cold
Winter is the most formidable season for the skin. Indeed, as soon as the cold arrives, the skin of the face, the lips and the hands is directly exposed to the external aggressions. So it tends to dry out faster. This is the sign that the care usually provided to the skin is no longer enough. (Day cream, milk for the body…) It is important to use appropriate care to protect your skin effectively.
How to protect your skin effectively despite the cold?
When the cold settles, the skin is inevitably attacked. In question: The heating of our houses, the dry air from the outside, the icy wind that accompanies it, the rubbing of the skin with the clothes, the abrupt passage from the hot to the cold. All this causes damage to the skin. It dehydrates, Dries, Reddens, irritates, gerce and even goes as far as to form crevices... It is out of the question to find yourself on the ski slopes chapped lips that burn or fingertips filled with crevices! It is known that hydration is essential to the proper functioning of the organism, it is just as essential to protect its skin. Water, herbal teas, broth everything is good to take. Alcohol, meanwhile, tends to dehydrate the organism and thus, by repercussion, the skin. So it is to be consumed in moderation;). That says hydration, also says nutrition. In order to nourish the skin from the inside, foods rich in fatty acids and omega-3 are chosen which help to preserve the skin lipid balance: fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, etc.), but also avocado and oilseeds (nuts, almonds, Hazelnuts, etc.). Did you know that a well-nourished skin limits the loss of water and thus the dehydration of the skin? To give a little boost to our skin and because eating properly is not always enough to preserve it from all these aggressions, it needs appropriate care. Our coup de coeur:

Protecting your skin from the sun
Whether you are on the ski slopes, hiking or on the terraces of a café, the sun is present and the cold tends to make us forget… In conclusion, one does not necessarily think to protect his skin from the sun with a sunscreen, a serious mistake! For all those who thought that the rays of the sun would be less violent in the mountains, well, think again… In fact, the higher you ascend, the higher the UV index increases. Did you know that at an altitude of 3000 m, UV radiation is 40% higher than that of sea level? This is due to the reverb of the sun on the snow. Indeed, UV radiation is intensified to 90% in snow versus 20% on sand and 4% on a lawn. You will have understood it to avoid the irreversible damage of the sun on the skin, protecting its skin from UV rays is paramount! You can’t do without sunscreen during your stay! Apply a generous layer to your face in the morning as well as a diaper every two hours. And remember, it’s not because the sun is not present that you have to do without sunscreen! UV rays also pass through the clouds.
