If I were to pack my toiletry bag for a ski holiday, or a winter getaway to the Scandinavian country side, there are 5 particular skincare products on top of my list.

The skin on your face is put to the test when you’re enjoying your holiday amongst snow-capped mountain peaks. The skin has naturally occurring oils which form a protective barrier on the surface, making it almost 100% waterproof and protective against the environment around you. But the wind, cold air and low humidity we experience in winter weather can weaken the effect of the barrier. It allows moisture to evaporate from the skin – leaving it dehydrated, stressed and susceptible to frostnip.


My TOP 5 skin saviors before, during and après-ski… or the ice cold walk.

Face oil

Use face oil as protection, that goes for oily skin, too. Face oils have a softening, moisturising and protective effect that help make the skin more resistant to the multiple drying elements of cold weather. The precious oils preserve the skin’s natural barrier, prevent dehydration and frotnip and protect the outer blood vessels.

CALM BALM

In extreme weather, such as a cold headwind when you’re out for a walk or on a skiing holiday, we recommend all skin types to supplement the basic skincare with face oils and balms to prevent dryness and irritation. Karmameju’s CALM balm is the ideal barrier cream/cold cream/lipid balm to apply to your own and your children’s cheeks in the winter.

The Karmameju balms contain 100% plant oils and butters that protect against the cold, weather and wind.

Comes in a 20 ml pocket size – perfect for travelling.

SUN BB cream SPF 30

The warm sun in your face, blue skies and the beautiful snow-covered landscapes can make you forget time - a wonderful break for the mind but not for the skin. Protect your skin from the sun above but also the reflections of the sun in the white snow. Look glowy and great in the mountains, the alps and by the Danish coast, with BB cream spf 30. Choose between our scale of 3 colours.

MUSE cleansing balm

The skin can get dehydrated and is more likely to become irritated in cold weather, so it’s a good idea to support the skin barrier by changing from a foaming, astringent cleansing gel to a softer, gentle cleanser – MUSE is not just that, it’s also an enchanting aromatherapeutic experience.

MUSE is my favourite cleansing product and the best cleansing balm I’ve ever tried.

 

HERO pH solution

Just as we have gut flora that needs good care, the skin has skin flora that needs our understanding and attention. Along with the skin’s natural oils, sweat, and bacteria, the skin flora is a fantastic barrier that protects against dehydration, irritation and infection. Try to avoid the warm water on your face when showering, and use HERO to stabilise the skin’s pH and barrier after showering.

Comes in a travel-friendly 50 ml size, perfect for the toiletry bag.
