Ski Resort Christmas by Emma Smith, ELLE and ELLEuk.com Beauty DirectorUnder the no-nonsense regulations stipulated by my husband-to-be, a ski holiday is not a time for too much relaxation, in fact it’s breakfast on first lifts and non-stop skiing until the very last. So any grooming I decide to undertake has to be effective and long-lasting, especially if I plan to work my streamlined Chanel jacket and Salopettes, cosy cashmere Vince and Joseph jumpers (always in black so that said other half can spot me easily down the piste). A study SPF that will protect me from the UV rays, a thick moisturiser to stop the harsh winds from drying out and a slick of waterproof mascara are the order of the day. In the evenings I love a soft warm bronzer to highlight my cheekbones.
Heady and warm, this scent almost heats you up as you sniff it through your cashmere. It’s also super romantic for cosy nights in, in front of the fire.
