Skin care on snow demands some switching in your daily skin care routine. Instead of a face tonic use an essence and a cleansing milk is more nourishing on the skin than a cleaning foam. But even more important nourish, feed and protect your skin and skin preparation is key.
ROYAL FERN PHYTOACTIVE SKIN PERFECTING ESSENCE
This essence is my new toner, especially during cold winter months when the skin needs lots of extra ingredients like fern extract, fruit acid and gluconolactone. I splash it onto my skin and press the gel like essence with my fingertips into the skin. This sustainable aware ritual (no cotton balls needed) is especially effective as the warmth of my finger pressing helps that the product penetrates nicely into the skin and prepares it perfectly for the Royal Fern Phytoactive Anti- Oxidative serum to get even more effective.
ROYAL FERN PHYTOACTIVE ANTI -OXIDATIVE AMPOULES by Dr. Timm Golüke
I use these illuminating Ampoules as a cure right after the essence by Dr. Timm Golüke. Their high ingredients of fern extract, Chlorophyll and Vitamin C is almost sufficient for a night-time skin care. Tap the serum into your skin by massaging your skin bone structure and pressing lightly with your fingertips. Also perfect for travelling as you take only one ampoule per day.
TEAM DR JOSEPH DAILY CLEANSING MILK
Use a cleansing milk instead of a foam cleanser when it`s cold outside and use a fair amount to massage into your skin in the morning to prepare the skin for additional skin care and at night to cleanse and to revitalize your skin.
If you skin feels very dry at night leave the milk on your face for ten minutes and use it as a mask, before taking it off with a warm damp piece of linen cloth.
NARS PURE RADIANT TINTED MOISTURIZER
On the slopes I hardly wear any make up, just pure skin care and protection and I love to use a tinted moisturizer with a SPF 30 by Nars. It evens the skin texture and when used on the eyelids it can also work as an eyeshadow.
BYREDO BLANCHE HANDCREAM
This travel size hand cream fits perfectly into my ski jacket and I use it whenever I take off my gloves. The beautiful smell takes me for my perception into a French garden and the minimalist package design into a tec ski mood, a perfect mix.
Also use it richly on your nails to nourish them for an extra protection.
ACQUA DI PARMA LIP BALM
One more product I cannot resist during cold weather is a rich lip balm. I like the Bergamot infused Aqua di Parma Lip balm which stays on long enough and smells of Calabrian Bergamotte. You can use it also on your elbows and fingernails, to hydrate and to give your nails an extra shine.
AUGUSTINUS BADER, THE RICH CREAM
Comes in a new, smaller travelling size container which even fits into your ski jacket. I use it normally only in the morning after an ampoule or a serum but during a day on skis it helps to press an extra hub around the eye and upper lip area to protect your skin and use it as a cold cream. If you want to travel light without to many products use a thick amount around the eyes as an eye care.
