4 Common Ski Season Problems, and Solutions
If you’d rather spend less time reading, and more time skiing, then here’s what you need to know if you’d rather skip sunburn, windburn, dry skin and a dull, drained look — get your hands on some Ski Balm before you hit the slopes. It prevents all four of those issues so you’ll look great atop those snowy mountains.
If you’re interested in why those pesky things happen when you spend all day skiing or snowboarding, keep reading.
The problem? Windburn
Windburn should be at the top of your list of concerns during an action-packed ski trip, yet it still slips many snow-lovers’ minds. Wind burn happens after being in the wind all day — who knew! And that wind isn’t a mild and sunny 75 degrees. It’s likely below freezing at times, puting your skin in some harsh conditions it isn’t used to.
Protect it all day long with Ski Balm.
The problem? Sunburn
When you’re in the mountains, skiing, having fun, you probably aren’t thinking about much sun you’re getting. It’s bright up there! And the rays bounce off the white snow. The only thing worse than excruciating windburn, is windburn and sunburn.
Protect your face from the sun with Ski Balm. (It has SPF 40 protection.)
The problem? Dry, dry skin
Spending prolonged amounts of time in areas with high altitude can take a toll on your skin. There is no moisture in the air. Like none. Your skin really struggles to retain and replenish moisture when you’re zipping up and down the mountain or chilling on a ski lift. But you can prevent overly dry skin by protecting it. (And loading up on your favorite moisturizer at the end of the day.)
Hydrate your face all day long with Ski Balm.
The problem? Dullness and low energy
Let’s revisit high altitudes and lack of moisture in the air. It causes your skin to be dry because you’re getting dehydrated. Dehydration is serious and dangerous and it is no joke — you need more water when you’re up in those ski resorts. So drink up. And then apply Ski balm.
