Essential Cosmetics for a Mountain Vacation

Mountain vacations present a wonderful opportunity to rejuvenate and take in some fresh air. It's crucial not to overpack your backpack, but still bring along a few essential beauty and care products. Discover here the must-haves to take with you on a hike or winter sports.

Sunscreen protection.

The higher we ascend in altitude, the "closer" we get to the sun, and the more harmful UV rays become. Additionally, on snowy ski slopes, the reflection of light is intense, posing an additional risk to the skin. Sunburns are indeed common during mountain stays.

As a reminder, prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to an increased risk of photoaging, photodermatoses, pigment spotsand skin cancers. Therefore, it is imperative to protect your skin from the sun's UV rays.As a reminder,There are four levels of SPF:

  • From 6 to 15 for a low protection ;

  • From15 to 30for amedium protection;

  • From 30 to 50 for a high protection ;

  • Of 50+ for a very high protection.

Each index represents a percentage of UVB rays blocked. The choice of your sun protection level depends on your needs and your skin type.Darker skin tones can opt for an SPF30 while fair skin should prioritize an SPF50+.

Note: Even though sunscreens protect against UV rays, it is recommended to limit sun exposure. For prolonged exposure to the sun, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours.

Moisturizing skincare.

The mountain air is cooler and drier than the air at lower altitudes. This can have detrimental effects on the skin. Indeed, the cold can dry it out and cause it to feel tight, leading to sensations of discomfort.

Choose a natural moisturizing cream that aligns with your skin type.If you have sensitive, dry, normal, or combination skin, ourmoisturizing creamwith 9 ingredients is suitable. If you have oily skin, you should lean towards thepurifying cream Zinc PCA 4% + bamboo extract. Enriched with sebum-regulating and antibacterial active ingredients, it purifies the skin and combats skin imperfections.

For the body, prioritize the moisturizing cream with 10 ingredients, which hydrates all skin types, even sensitive ones. This treatment is enriched with organic coconut oil , a vegetable oil rich in saturated fatty acids that nourishes and prevents skin dehydration. It also contains vegetable glycerin derived from rapeseed and sunflower seed that captures the moisture from the air and allows for superficial hydration of the skin.

The lip balm.

The effects of cold and wind on the lips are well known. Without protection, unsightly and sometimes painful chapping often occurs. This is due to the fact that the skin of the lips has certain characteristics, which make it more sensitive to its environment. Indeed, it is 5 times thinner than that of the face and lacks sebaceous and sweat glands. Therefore, there is no greasy film covering them to prevent drying. In addition, the skin of the lips is devoid of melanin, which explains their vulnerability to UV rays.

Therefore, applying a protective balm to limit dehydration is essential, especially in the mountains. Don't hesitate, carry in your backpack our 9-ingredient lip balm. This minimalist, fragrance-free formula is suitable for sensitive skin. The balm nourishes the lips and reduces feelings of tightness and dryness.

Not forgetting the hand cream.

The skin on our hands is particularly sensitive to low temperatures and can quickly become damaged. Pay special attention to moisturizing and protecting your hands during your ski vacations, even if you are constantly wearing gloves. The hand balm with 10 ingredients from Typology is ideal. Its minimalist formula, free of fragrance, is perfect for sensitive skin. It contains essential ingredients for skin hydration, such as hyaluronic acid and coconut oil. In the mountains, apply it whenever you feel the need.
