Going on a ski holiday is perhaps the most exciting and glamorous event on our calendar, but it’s also a time when our faces and hair are exposed to some extremely extreme conditions. You can often look like a yeti swept away by the wind rather than the James Bond ski girl you’ve been thinking of. In this post, I’ve compiled a list of my top winter beauty tips for looking great on the slopes.
1. Hair treatment before the holiday
The high-altitude, cold air is drier than in summer, so it’s a good idea to inject some moisture into your hair – especially before a trip to the mountains. Applying a moisturizing mask once a week before your trip will keep your hair from becoming dry and brittle. The Kérastase Nutritive Mask works wonders, but you can also find similar, cheaper options. Central heating (always placed overhead in ski resorts) can also dry out your scalp, leaving it flaky and irritated. I recommend trying a gentle anti-dandruff shampoo like Redken Scalp Relief which works wonderfully to soothe the skin.
2. Hide it
If you keep your hair long and you’ve skied in the past, you’ll be familiar with the pain of combing your hair after a skiing session. You’ll also know about ‘helmet hair’ – squashed, even if it’s protected from the elements. One idea is to tie your hair into a small bun at the nape and secure it with an invisible hair net for extra support. When it’s lunch time or after you’ve finished the bun and your beautiful, flawless hair will be revealed (and no one will know you’ve fallen headfirst off the mountain). If you’re a ski bunny and care about style on the slopes, why not opt for the invisible clip-on ponytail? Invest in one of Hershesons’ beautiful hairstyles and let it face the elements while your hair is securely tucked in.
3. Anti-snow makeup
Yes, some people might consider ski makeup a ridiculous idea, but a few simple products will turn you into the ultimate ski girl. Waterproof (and sweat-proof depending on how serious you are when skiing) and looking natural are key. Choose a solid foundation no matter how much snow you throw at it. I highly recommend Bobbi Brown Foundation Sticks; they are grease based so they have great hold and give a very natural, dewy finish. They are easy to apply and great for lunchtime contact sessions. To complete the look, simply add a good waterproof mascara. You don’t want to look too fresh and natural. The cold air will do the rest – giving you rosy cheeks and bright eyes.
4. Avoid Goggle Tan
There’s something incredibly intriguing about getting knots — people will be able to guess where you just went by the time you get back to the office on Monday morning. However, darkening your skin and burning your skin is not a wise idea. Fresh snow is a good reflector of the sun’s rays and almost doubles a person’s exposure to harmful UV radiation. Since ski resorts are often located at high altitude, the atmosphere is thinner, and therefore, ultraviolet rays can be even stronger in these places. Using a sun screen with an SPF of at least 30 (or SPF 50 even better in spring) is extremely important to protect your skin from premature aging and skin cancer. Having a melasma face also has the potential to ruin your vacation. Two good protection creams in handy sizes are Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 and Clarins Ecran Multi-Protection SPF 50. Taking care of your lips is also important. Apply a high SPF lip sunscreen throughout the day, especially after eating and drinking. Avoid regular lip balms as they act as an oil to fry your lips. Unhappy.
5. If you can’t fix – camouflage

I’m not a fan of big furry headbands, but she sure has a point. Going straight from the slopes for lunch or dinner is one of the best things about a ski vacation, but many of us dread when our helmets pop out and what’s hidden underneath. disclosure. A quick spray of dry shampoo will cover some of the sweat, and the rest can be hidden with a headband. Quick and easy.
6. The Last Resort
Sometimes you can’t keep the goddess inside while skiing, so it’s important to have a backup plan. Invest in a stylish hip flask and just enjoy yourself.
The Face Bar offers ‘room service’ for make-up and blow-drying, and gives those who are hard at work on their ski holiday the chance to unwind after a day on the slopes.
