Groomed for the Slopes

Published on 15th February 2017

Heading off to the slopes this year? Before you jet off don’t forget in all the excitement that it pays to put a little thought into the grooming essentials you are going to pack!

However with ski gear not being the most compact of holiday clothing what grooming products should make their way into our suitcases to make sure we remain protected and looking fresh whilst whizzing down the slopes?

To make things simple we have listed our 3 essentials below:


Sun protection

With snow acting as a perfect surface for sun reflection, making sure your skin is well protected from harmful UV rays is a must. Any sun cream is better than none but if possible pick up one that specifically designed for the snow and low temperatures. Garnier Ambre Solaire UV Sun Cream is a great example which has been specifically created for high altitude conditions where the sun is intensified and the cold and wind dry out the skin.


After a long day on the slopes (or après-ski) you are going to want to replenish the mousier that will be drawn from your skin from the harsh cool air of the high altitudes. Jack Black double duty face moisturiser is one of our favourites!


Lets face it, everyone likes to smell good especially on holiday and a ski trip is no exception! Why not try Grhume No. 14, the slightly stronger version of the original that will keep you smelling fresh all day!
