Protect from the cold: what to take with you to winter sports?

The best care from the cold to slip into your toiletry bag during your ski holiday.

Faced with cold, dry air and temperature changes found at high altitudes, the whole body needs more than usual to be pampered with many soothing treatments. On the one hand, the skin becomes dry, tight and more sensitive to redness and other irritations. On the other hand, the hair fiber becomes brittle, causing frizz and static electricity. Therefore, it is important to adapt your skin care routine to minimize these concerns.
