Avoid sunburnt skin on the ski slopes with aloe vera
Getting ready to hit the slopes this winter? Don’t forget to pack some essential natural beauty products along with your salopettes to avoid sunburn and painful wind burn on your face.
Kimberley Carter of the British Association of Dermatologists pointed out that skiers risk soaking up as many dangerous ultraviolet rays as sun worshippers relaxing on the beach, which is something that is often not picked up on.
"Many people forget that skiing and snowboarding also carry a high risk of sunburn – just think of the panda-eyes tan marks that betray every novice skier," she said.
"UV radiation is actually more severe in alpine regions than at sea level - the amount of UV rays that reach the earth’s surface increases by up to five per cent for every 1,000 feet above sea level you are. So for example, a mountain at 10,000 feet receives 50 per cent more UV exposure than an area at sea level."
Water and snow are also very efficient at reflecting UV radiation, which can result in sore, red noses and chins for winter sports fans.
"Don’t forget to pack a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 30 and reapply it regularly to all exposed areas of skin if you are hitting the slopes," Ms Carter added.
However, if you do get burnt while showing off your snowplough, there are organic beauty products you can apply to your skin to take out the sting.
Aloe vera, for example, is renowned for soothing sunburnt skin and can also be used as a moisturiser to help avoid flaky skin in the cold weather.
As well as being great for skin conditions, aloe vera juice can also be used as a drink to promote digestive cleansing and to stimulate the digestive process, as well as to help tackle dental problems when used as a mouthwash.
