The Top 10 Beauty Solutions For Skiing and Other Snowy Situations
Gallery >> Beauty solutions for snowy situations...
While there is nothing we love more than a skiing holiday, or in fact, any kind of snow (so fun/so pretty/always the chance a snow day from work etc.), there’s no denying this is a weather type which plays havoc with your beauty look. We'd be prepared to put money on there being a fair few among you who have a) forgotten to apply SPF pre a day’s skiing, b) been so stiff after a day’s skiing that you’ve doubted you will ever move again and c) l those of you that just get really sore, red chapped lips and hands whenever it’s nippy outside. But fear not. We Grazia beauty girls have rounded up the 10 ski (and just plain cold weather), saviours from SPF’s to skin saving balms that we just can’t live without. Take a look though our gallery above and click to get shopping beauties!
