After a beautiful stay at Hotel Le Coucou Méribel in the French Alps, we're back to share all our slopeside secrets for protecting and (and nourishing) your skin during a winter getaway. Alpine air is even drier and colder, and when you pair that with intense sun, snow, and wind, your skin can be left compromised and dry before you’ve even hit the slopes! That’s why, when we packed our bags, we brought along the heavy hitters to intensely moisturize and nourish our winter skin. Below, discover our ultimate ski getaway products to keep your skin super soft and hydrated — both on and off the slopes!
When packing for a ski holiday, these are your in-flight and on-the-road essentials for strengthening the skin's barrier and locking in moisture to get you ready for all the action.
To start, before a long day in the mountains, prep your skin with a gentle cleanse to remove buildup and soothe redness. Our Refreshing Cleanser is a milky cleansing treatment that gently hydrates and exfoliates, leaving your skin radiant and healthy.
Once your skin is freshly cleansed, reach for our two winter non-negotiables: Crème Riche and our bestselling Rejuvenating Serum. This duo is a must-have for intense hydration, nourishment, and protection for winter skin. Before hitting the slopes, layer these two multi-tasking formulas for powerful results:
First, apply our Rejuvenating Serum to feed your skin with micro and macro algae and neuropeptides that energize and tighten skin, as well as smooth the look of wrinkles and restore a youthfully bright appearance. Next, layer on Crème Riche, our richest, most velvety moisturizer, which is packed with fatty acids and vitamin F for super soft, youthful-looking skin.
For your essential last step, lock in hydration and nourishment with our multi-vitamin Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil. This is your best defense to soothe any irritation and support the skin's natural barrier.
Ready to hit the slopes? Don't forget these must-haves for on-the-go hydration throughout your day.
To prepare for the intensified weather (wind, sun, snow), apply a generous amount of Boosted Contouring Eye Balm around your eyes and lips to lock in moisture and nourish winter skin. (Keep in your coat pocket and re-apply to eyes and lips as necessary in between runs!) Finish your look with Be True, our hydrating lip balm, and seal in all of that moisture with our Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil (it’s like a multivitamin for your skin).
Tata’s Tip: Be sure to finish your routine with an SPF like Soleo Organics to protect skin from intensified sun exposure throughout the day.
Post ski day, these are your winter rescue non-negotiables to help your fight off dullness, dry patches, and redness.
Focus on replenishing lost moisture and soothing your skin with our Hydration Power Couple: the Hydrating Floral Mask and Hydrating Floral Essence. These powerful products are formulated with 1,000 different sizes of hyaluronic acid and skin-rejuvenating floral blends to provide extreme hydration and nourishment. We like to describe Hydrating Floral Mask as a tall glass of water for parched, dehydrated skin. And not only does it provide hyper-hydration, but it’s also been clinically proven to reduce redness!
To apply, use our green beauty brush and layer our Hydrating Floral Mask all over your face and neck. Leave on for twenty minutes (this is the perfect time to relax in a warm bath or sauna!). Next, remove the mask by generously misting our Hydrating Floral Essence all over your face and neck. Once skin and mask are saturated, gently towel off the resulting milk using our super soft Green Beauty Towelette, leaving a little mask left in your skin for a dewy finish.
From your shoulders down, take care of your skin with exfoliation and hydration. First, gently buff dry winter skin with our Regenerating Cleanser — apply to dry skin after a long day on the slopes, and then rinse off. After showering, apply our Revitalizing Body Oil to lock in moisture from head to toe.
