Heading for the slopes? Think Skis, Sunglasses, Sunscreen!

Heading for the slopes? Think Skis, Sunglasses, Sunscreen! If a snow-covered mountain top is your perfect holiday destination, then a skiing holiday will no doubt be high on your agenda at the moment.  With the ski season in full swing, and popular destinations such as France, Austria and Switzerland enjoying excellent skiing conditions, thousands of British snow fans are heading for the slopes.
Packing for any skiing holiday is always a bit of a challenge, with bulky snowsuits and warm clothes taking up lots of space in the suitcase.  When youíre trying to fit base layers, beanies, ski gloves, goggles and thermals in your case, itís easy to forget the basic essentials, such as sunscreen.
Many people donít even give sun protection a second thought when heading up a mountain and itís not surprising really.  We often donít associate a winter holiday with the need to protect our skin.  However, as any experienced skier will tell you, the sun can get very hot despite the sub-zero temperatures.
A bad case of sunburn can be extremely painful and definitely ruin a weekend or holiday in the snow. Even though temperatures may be extremely cold, the potential for sunburn can be very high.
The risk of sunburn is much greater in alpine regions than at sea level because the atmosphere is thinner and less pollution is present to filter out ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Snow can reflect almost 90% of UV radiation so UV rays are much more likely to burn areas such as your chin and nose.  And if you strip off layers at lunchtime to enjoy a bit of sunshine, youíll definitely need to think about sun protection.

Why Choose Techniblock Aerosol Sunscreen?
