Skiing skin care & sunscreen guide

Skiing skin care & sunscreen guide

If you love skiing and snowboarding and need a natural skin care routine that comforts and protects your skin whilst you’re on the slopes, we can help! Read on to discover our skiing skin care and sunscreen suggestions.

Best sunscreen for skiing

Sunlight reflects off white, snowy surfaces and so a high-factor sun lotion should always be a skier’s skin care priority.

Green People’s Scent Free Facial Sun Cream SPF30 is our best skiing sunscreen and provides high-factor protection against UVA & UVB light.

It has a water-repellent formulation that helps to maintain UV protection and is made with Edelweiss, a plant that grows in Alpine regions at around 3,000 metres above sea level and where UV light is particularly strong.

Edelweiss helps to shield against the effects of harmful UV rays by offering powerful protection against free radical damage.

Our SPF30 sunscreen for skiing is also rich in replenishing ingredients that help comfort skin exposed to chafing winds and features hydrating Aloe Vera, softening Sunflower Oil and soothing Myrrh Oil.

Also available in a range of travel-friendly sizes which are stocked by certain luxury ski chalet companies, such Ski Verbier Exclusive, Green People sunscreens are not only great for slipping in your hand luggage but are also the perfect fit for your ski jacket pocket.

Make sure to apply before you hit the slopes and every 2 hours to maintain your protection.

Best skiing moisturiser

After a day on the slopes, you’ll naturally want to replenish your skin with a nourishing face cream and we think that the best skiing moisturiser is our Scent Free Anti-Ageing 24-Hour Cream.

This unisex face cream is rich in organic plant oils and essential nutrients that support natural skin health and features a moisture-retaining complex that hydrates and soothes dry skin.

If your skin is prone to redness after skiing, mix a few of our Age Defy+ Soothing Anti-Redness drops with your moisturiser before you apply it to the skin.

This features nourishing plant oils and emollients that seal moisture into the skin and is made using Apricot Plant Stem Cell technology that has been shown to help reduces redness.

 

The best men’s moisturiser for skiing is the Green People for Men No.3 Cooling Moisturiser. This cooling skin cream quickly hydrates dry male skin and features a high concentration of Aloe Vera. This soothes and hydrates the skin and contains Peppermint to cool skin that feels flushed after skiing.

Best barrier balm for skiing

If cold weather stings your lips, cheeks or nose, it is worthwhile packing a barrier balm for your ski trip.

One Balm is a skiing skin care essential which is easy to carry in your skin jacket pocket features nourishing natural actives that will soothe and comfort the skin.

An ideal skin care product for when you’re packing light, this multipurpose product can be applied to dry skin or any areas of chafing.

It can also be used to calm and nourish the skin before and after skiing and can even be used to tame eyebrows or to add a little sheen to your lips before you visit the après ski bar.

Best massage oil for skiers

Skiing is an intense workout and a soak in the bath back at your ski chalet will help to soothe your weary muscles. Mix a few drops of our Time to Ease Muscle Relax Body Oil with an unscented shower gel to create the perfect post-ski bath routine.

Time to Ease was created to help ease muscular tension and provides warming heat relief through soothing Ginger and Black Pepper while Peppermint and Eucalyptus soothe and calm. A relaxing, herbal body oil, it combines the phyto active CB2-Skin™ Biofunctional with pure plant actives with pain-relieving properties.

You can also use Time to Ease as a massage oil or muscle rub and we suggest working a little onto weary knees before you hit the slopes each morning, and again at night.
