Don't be fooled by changing weather. Winter skincare matters just as much as the sunnier seasons. Snow can reflect up to 90% of UV rays, which means that you can be exposed to a skin-damaging dose of UV despite not “feeling it” like you do on the beach. Whether you're hitting the slopes on your snowboard or indulging in après-ski fireside festivities at the lodge, taking proper care of your winter skin is a must.
Here's the truth: colder temps outside, warmer temps inside and dry air everywhere can disrupt your skin’s barrier. You know the feeling...dry, itchy, sometimes even flaky skin (no thanks). It's important to drench your skin in moisture-locking, UV-blocking protection all season long to maintain happy + healthy skin.
Enter our fav ingredients for surviving your winter playground...adaptogens, Monoi de Tahiti + plumping peptides. Found in our NEW Snow Bunny Sunscreen Set, these ingredients are an alpine luxe dream for winter skin. Here's why:
For the Slopes | Time Traveler's Certified Tahitian Monoi + Adaptogens + Peptides
Slope time calls for Time Traveler's rich creme-style formula! In addition to water + sweat resistant SPF 30, Time Traveler delivers intense moisture and visibly plumps + revives dry skin. Time Traveler's PlantDFNS™ formula contains the ultimate healing hydrator + rejuvenator...Certified Tahitian Monoi. This skin saver is clinically proven to moisturize up to two hours after exposure (AKA the key post-slope repair hours). With a barrier defensive combo of adaptogens, ceramides and shea, Time Traveler also helps prevent windburn so no more tight skin moments!
Après-Ski | Guardian Angel's Plumping Peptides + Adaptogenic Triphala
If après-ski is more your vibe, you need Guardian Angel in your winter routine. This daily-wear, oil-free sunscreen milk makes the perfect protective primer for a day spent sippin' champagne slopeside. Guardian Angel's formula contains a powerful mix of biocompatible actives including Super Proteins (a 5 amino acid pentapeptide that helps plump fine lines + stimulates collagen and elastin production) and Adaptogenic Triphala (three Ayurvedic + adaptogenic superfruits that helps address oxidative stress, rebuild structural proteins and stimulate selective youth genes.) No lackluster, parched winter skin here!
On + Off the Slopes | Pout Protector's Double Tripeptide Blend
ProTip: the lips are just as sensitive as the skin (if not more!) and they shouldn't be forgotten in your wintertime skincare routine. Pack a tube of Pout Protector Moisturizing Lip Serum in your pocket and take it with you from the ski lift to the spa. Her non-irritating, peptide blend softly plumps while helping stimulate collagen growth while Certified Tahitian Monoi helps nourish + repair delicate lippies.
Don't let playing in the snow cause premature wrinkles...your skin barrier will thank you this winter season!
