Ski season has begun! If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off to wherever you might be jetting off to (even if that’s just to one of our recommended winter pop-ups in London that offer wonderfully realistic apres-ski experiences without any of the exercise), enlist the essentials from our handy guide below and have the best ski trip ever.

Ski Season: What to Pack

Skincare

patchology

Patchology’s products are made for those whose skin needs serious hydrating and rejuvenating. Their skiing saviours include Rejuvenating Eye Gels that work wonders after a particularly late or heavy apres-ski session, Hydrating Lip Gels which are rich masks for your lips, ideal for those who find themselves regularly face-planting the snow, and a Soothe Flashmasque made with Aloe Vera to soothe burnt skin. Shop via patchology.co.uk, Harvey Nichols or Space NK.

Don’t let the cold fool you – it’s incredibly easy to burn whilst skiing. This brush by Colorescience UK is powered by EnviroScreen Technology which means your skin is protected from UVA and UVB with a simple application. It’s water resistant for up to 80 minutes and is SPF 50. Sunforgettable Total Protection™ Brush On Shield SPF 50, £46.50
