Olympic Skin Care Tips

>> Put sunscreen on 15 minutes before going outdoors.

>> When selecting a sunscreen, choose a product that has an SPF of 30 or greater with broad-spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection.

>> Make sunscreen a part of your ski-gear bag so you always have it with you.

>> Don’t forget your nose. I always protect my nose and wear zinc oxide to protect against sunburn.

>> Reapply sunscreen every couple of hours when you are on the slopes. I reapply every time I go into the lodge.

>> Wear goggles or sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection to protect your eyes.
