My Skiing Skin Care

Morning & Night

I oversimplified my beauty routine for skiing (and the city). I wasn’t in a beautysta mood and wanted to travel light too. For several months, I am not siciplined for food, sports and beauty.

And it is regularity that makes difference! Conclusion fewer products and less beauty tests (and less discoveries too), but a more selective vanity box. Don’t worry I feel that with the rise of spring, my beautista will wake up soon …

Let’s start with the make-up removal and cleansing. 1. The Karité Brume Confort of L’Occitane (L’Occitane Comfort Shea Mist) without alchool. I use it all times and especially when I feel my skin skirmish. My first step in the morning to moisturize my skin dried by the heating. 

2. The Uriage Thermal Micellar Water is a very good travel product that softly cleans and removes very well. When I am at home, I use it alternates with oils and milks (I have a very sensitive skin).

3. My favorite: Weleda Refining Toner. This natural cosmetic with witch hazel and rose hip soothes and invigorates the skin. At first as I was afraid of a reaction to the essential oils, I only applied it at night. But I have made no reaction. Excellent product that leaves the skin smooth.

Serums & Cream

My other favorite is Nuxe Nuxellence – Youth & Radiance Revealing Fluid (2) : my “looks good” face cream with Passiflora flower. When I don’t use it, my complexion is duller. I love the cream texture and very discret perfume. When traveling, I use it morning and night.

I’ve also taken to the ski the Evocure Anti Age EGF Serum and Evocure Eye Care Serum(1) : with “composition of advanced active principles encapsulated in hyaluronic acid allows it to penetrate deeply in the skin to stimulate natural synthesis of collagen and cell repair” (Evocure).

Forgetting The Beautiful Curls

I have frizzy hair (2). The dry air of mountains can be an ally. But with the helmet (to ski), beanie and heating, I have to attach my hair all the time. And use more super moisturizing care, because they are drier and more brittle than in town.

I complete my hydration with the Nectar d’Huiles Végétales HydraR’Force of Farida b (1).  I alternate with two other creams of the HydraR’Force range (4) : the Crème Fluide Hydratante de Jour (not effective on my hair) and excellent Baume Végétal Nourrissant. I heat its grainy texture in the hands before applying it to the hair.

A stick to nourish lips and kleenex. D. My ski pass! E. A mini notebook and pen: who knows if I have a great idea while skiing? (LOL)! And F. A hypster beanie, not so useful under the helmet!

Fragrances & Nail Polish  

I love fragrances! Fidele to Estée Lauder: I really fell for her Modern Muse Le Rouge (1), based on roses and fruits. I find it both light, fresh, heady, modern and really feminine.

2. Hermès Le Jardin de Monsieur Li : this shower gel has a subtle classy fragrance and leaves the skin very soft! 3. The pleasure of bathing in an outdoor swimming pool in a snowy setting at Le Tremplin Méribel. 4. Some red red: the Hema Long Lasting Rouge.
