Winter Skincare Tips for Skiers and Riders

Let The Spa at Topnotch Help Your Find Simple Solutions


Skiers should take extra care of their skin because it is exposed to harsh environmental conditions, including cold temperatures, dry air, and UV radiation. Here are some skincare tips for skiers:


Use a moisturizer

Cold temperatures and dry air can strip the skin of moisture, so it is important to keep your skin hydrated. Use a moisturizer regularly to help maintain the skin's natural barrier and prevent dryness. We recommend the Water-Lock Moisturizer by Tata Harper.


Protect your skin from the sun

 UV radiation is stronger at higher altitudes, so it is important to wear sunscreen with a high SPF. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, or more frequently if you are sweating or if you are in the water. The Physical Fusion UV Defense Sunscreen by Skinceuticals is our go to.


Wear protective clothing

Cover your skin with clothing to help protect it from the sun and cold. Wear a hat, sunglasses, and a scarf to cover your face and neck. 


Use lip balm

Lips can become dry and chapped in the cold, so be sure to use a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips from the sun and keep them moisturized. Pick up the Lip Conditioner by Caudalie.


Cleanse and exfoliate your skin

After a day on the slopes, be sure to cleanse your skin to remove dirt, sweat, and makeup. Exfoliating your skin can help remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Tata Harper's Refreshing Cleanser is the Creamy Enzyme Treatment we rely on.


Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of water to help keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. And for hydration from the outside in, try the Tata Harper Moisture Boosting Facial. This 50-minute spa treatment has a calming and therapeutic effect for the skin and overall wellbeing. It is designed to give the skin a soft, suple and lifted looks after a long day on the slopes. This complex service encompasses relaxing and therapeutic techniques like a scalp and hand massage and  a Jade Roller facial massage, with the best from skincare: double-cleanse, double-mask, deeply hydrating serum and moisturizer.
