Cold dry climate and the sun in high altitude are two factors that require maximum protection whatever your skin type (or skin colour). The UV intensity increases on average by 30% because of the sun’s reflection on the snow, the skin is therefore particularly exposed in the mountains.
Protect: protection must be optimal, skin and eyes suffer real attacks, sometimes with tragic consequences. There are also protective creams that create an artificial lipid film and protect against cold and wind.
Moisturise before and after: use of moisturising creams and masks.
Repair: continue to moisturise the skin on a regular basis at least 15 days after your return.
Your skin is not prepared and it faces a totally different climate. Long flights are also an important factor in dehydration. Prepare the skin before departure: exfoliation and deep moisturiser.
Moisturise during the trip, protect skin during your stay: avoid times when sun is strongest. Rehydrate after exposure to the sun.
