Skiing in winter
At high altitude, you will find that the air is thinner. In the thin air, the Ultraviolet light is stronger. Hence it is easy to overdo sun exposure. Simple techniques to protect your face and neck when skiing in winter:
- Wear a Balaclava / Chube/ Buff / Airtube or Air hood. They are the trendiest way of protecting against snow, wind and sun.
- Under all acrylic neck and face protection still wear a factor 50 or greater SPF
- Protect your eyes with good ski goggles such as those by Anon and Oakley, even when there is no sun
- Make sure that you protect your nose, cheeks and sides of the face from sun and wind
