How to Achieve That Après Ski Glow


I confess to not really getting skiing – so repetitive, so much effort. The après-ski glow, though, I aspire to. Strategically placed cool blush is the easiest way – try Nars’ icy pink Loves Me Not. Something like Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Moisture Balm in Golden Glow brightens the skin instantly, even if it’s dulled by winter excesses. You could also have a blast of cryotherapy (ice facials – all the chill, none of the thermals). If you are actually heading to the slopes, however, start your skin protection right now: Biologique Recherche’s Préparation UV prepares skin for sun exposure in advance. For a properly weathered, post-slope glow without any skin damage (see Anna Sui SS20, above, for a guide), buff on Amanda Harrington face tan (at Harvey Nichols), or a face-warming bronzer. Lots of lip balm is essential for the ski vibe, real or imagined: grab a pot of Pommade Divine, a heavy-duty favourite, or Arden’s trusty Eight Hour Cream. For show-offs, it has to be Buly’s all-natural lip balm personalised with your initials on (vegetable) leather. It’s worth knowing, too, that Charlotte Tilbury has extended her endlessly flattering cult nude-pink Pillow Talk shade to include everything from eyeliner to Lip Lustre (from January 30).
