Heathly Reminder: Protect Yourself From the Winter Sun

A sun-kissed glow after a beach vacation is something to smile about, but the raccoon eyes so many people get from a snow-filled trip will only make you cringe. The sun's damaging effects are just as dangerous when it's Winter, so unless you're just planning on hiding out in the cozy lodge, throw some sunscreen in your suitcase beside your layering socks. You'll no doubt want to get on the slopes as soon as possible, but taking an extra five minutes to properly apply sunscreen will prevent you from getting burned from day one.

This ski season, I am loving K2 Sunblock. This ski maker knows how to protect your skin on the slopes.

Although I'm well aware that sunscreen is important when skiing, what worries me more is when people go without putting on sunglasses. Snowblindness is dangerous but it's not really something you talk about when preparing for a skiing day.

And remember to apply sun screen to your lips as well. Yesterday I had a precancerous lesion removed from my lower lip. Believe me, I will be much more diligent than I have been in the past!
