Sun on the Slopes: products and events to consider

While we snowgrrls love to play and look great in the snow, we also take precautions to ensure that our skin stays healthy and wrinkle-free.  We don’t need to tell you how damaging the sun’s effects can be, or how strong the rays are at the high altitudes of mountain resorts (do we?).  However, snowgrrl recently tested several products that provide powerful protection, and was thrilled to learn of an upcoming event to raise awareness of skin issues.

Sunlight Mountain will host free skin screenings on March 7, 2015 as part of Melanoma Awareness Day.  The event occurs in the lodge from 10:00am – 2:00pm; participants can enter a prize drawing featuring a Sunlight Season Pass and other prizes.  All proceeds are directed to the Melanoma Research Foundation.

At the SIA SnowShow, Snowgrrl received several products touting skin protection.  The first is Goddess Garden Organics’ Sunny Face Natural Sunscreen, which was tested on both sunny and snowy days at Vail.  We love that this is made of natural organic ingredients, made in Colorado, and features a special oil to promote skin repair.   On initial application, it appeared slightly white and felt sticky, but moments later, it absorbed clearly into the skin.  The Goddess Garden sunscreen is definitely going to become a makeup bag essential for snowgrrl.
