If you plan a ski trip this winter make sure to protect your skin on the slopes! Skiers are at a higher risk for skin cancer because sunlight is stronger at higher elevations and rays reflect off the snow. Here are some tips to stay sun safe while skiing: Make sunscreen a part of your ski gear bag so you always have sunscreen. Choose a moisturizing sunscreen to help prevent dry skin. Don’t forget your lips! Keep a moisturizing lip balm with SPF in your pocket for easy reapplying. Find a time while you are on the slopes to reapply sunscreen every couple of hours because sunscreen wears off. Wear goggles or sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection to protect your eyes. Wear a hat. Put on a hat to protect your face when you take your helmet off. For extra protection add Heliocare into your morning routine. This daily antioxidant supplement helps to protect against the aging effects of free radicals from the sun’s radiation.  Some of our favorite products for the slopes include:
