Elizabeth Arden – Eight Hour Cream 

To me, this is miracle cream all year round but I always have some Eight Hour Cream to hand when skiing. The wind, moisture and freezing temperatures take their told on your lips and any exposed skin. If you are lucky enough to have blue skies and sun during a ski trip it will still take its toll on your skin even if you wear sun cream but luckily this magic cream can heal and sooth over night.

Its best to massage this cream into your skin or pile it on is extreme problem areas before going to bed and in the morning you will see an improvement. I also carry round a small tin of this magic cream while on the slopes to make sure dry skin or sore lips isn’t going to ruin my day.

Eight Hour cream comes in many forms and even comes as a lipstick, both natural and colours so if you really cannot go any where with out your lippy a coloured version will be perfect to look glam while sipping a hot chocolate during amid morning ski break or at Apres Ski!

Sanex Hydrate 24h Body Lotion 

Even though you have on several layers the the cold, moisture and constant change in your body temperature will dry out your skin. In addition to this ski clothes aren’t made of the kindest material  to your skin. The worst mistake you can make is applying a moisturiser which is heavily fragranced to sore,dry skin after skiing. It REALLY stings! For me the best thing to use is Sanex Hydratre 24h Body Lotion, it is fast acting, rich but fast drying and most importantly, it doesn’t sting dry damaged skin!

Samex Hydrate 24h Body Lotion 250ml  – £6 – 7

Maybelline Lash Sensation Waterproof Mascara 

Not to be vain but Mascara is something I feel transforms my eyes, I can go from haggard to glam with a coat of a good mascara so it is something I always wear. I recently travelled to the Ice Hotel in Sweden where I was told by the Travel Company Rep the – 20 and lower temperatures meant mascara was a no go unless you wanted to look like a panda. Obviously I set out to prove her wrong!

My Mabelline Lash Sensation mascara lasts whether I am building fires and making pine needle tea in -30, racing on a snow mobile or whizzing down the slopes, even in the rain and snow.

Although this is a great mascara the trick is to apply it not too heavy and mainly to the ends of the lash, this means even if your eyes water  from the cold of wind you wont end up with black smudges under your eyes.

Maybelline Lash Sensation Waterproof Mascara – £7.99

Andrew Barton SOS Hair Repair Treatment

My hair regularly gets damp or freezes on a snow filled trip, also always wearing helmets or hats can make you feel like you need a good hair pamper. I tried this out after coming back from my last ski trip  and I am so pleased I have found it.

Hair treatments can be expensive and not always worth the high price tag, this SOS hair mask is cheap and really works. The treatment uses Argan Oil, Soy Protein and Shea Butter to give your hair a Vitamin E boost leaving it  feeling nourished and shiny.

The treatment works in just 3 minutes but I left it on for around 10 minutes to really bring my hair back to life after my Ski Trip. You can purchase this treatment in a 250ml tub or a travel sachet and can also get the full range of SOS treatments for under £4 each.

Andrew Barton SOS Hair Repair Treatment 250ml – £3.60

Quick and Easy Make Up Looks Using Urban Decay Naked 2 – Perfect for Packing Light

urban-decay-naked-2

 

I love make up and spending a good hour with my many lotions and potions is like heaven to me but being a make up lover and travelling isn’t easy. It’s always hard to pack all the make up you need for a trip with out ending up going over your hold baggage weight or ramming it all in those plastic zip lock bags hoping that no one notices you have more liquid than the whole of duty free. If you are like me you plan looks, have pigments, powders and liners galore but realistically when it comes to it you are either having too much of a good time or are so relaxed you can’t be bothered to spend ages on your make up. The best solution is to just pack an eye pallet and a few lippy’s and hope for the best.

 

There are hundred’s of pallets out there but I don’t think you can get better value for money than an Urban Decay Naked pallet (£38.50). Recently I tried only packing my Urban Decay Naked 2, some mascara, base, highlight/bronze, 2 blushers (pink tone and coral tone) and a few lipsticks. My make up bag wasn’t bulging and for once I didn’t go over my weight limit. I also only allowed myself 15 – 20 minutes for make up every evening so I could make the most of my trip! These looks are simple, quick and perfect for packing light.
