Beauty and wellness advice for the slopes
Tips and tricks to help you prioritise the beauty essentials to leave you feeling relaxed, revitalised and rejuvenated on the slopes.
From thermals and sunglasses to gloves and goggles, there are plenty of necessities needed for alpine trips. With sub-zero temperatures and high-altitude resorts, it is very easy for your body to become dehydrated and overworked so packing products to prep your body is vital.
But don't worry, help is at hand as Charlie McCorry, COO at mobile beauty company Ruuby, shares her tips and tricks to help you prioritise the beauty essentials to leave you feeling relaxed, revitalised and rejuvenated on the slopes.
For the ultimate luxury and reward for your body, take a 24-hour on-demand beauty and wellness therapist to the mountains with you and have unlimited access to customised massages, facials, manicures and blow-dries, all delivered in the comfort of your own chalet. To book, please call Leo Trippi and speak to a member of the team.
TIP: Tie long hair in a small bun and secure it with an invisible hair net for extra support. When the time comes for lunch or après, your hair will appear unscathed and without any sign of that large fall!
