Win a swish winter sports protection pack
Hit the slopes with the sun mousse and Oakley
Monday 31 January 2011
If there’s one good thing about winter it’s escaping the grey British sky for the slopes of Europe and North America. Not only is it a chance to get some high octane skiing action abroad; but also means a much-needed dose of winter sun.
However after months of sunless rainy days in the UK, that pasty skin you’ve been hiding away is sure to find it a bit of a shock when you step onto the glare of the mountain. And that means without adequate sun protection you’re likely to return home looking like a beetroot.
It’s vital that you choose the correct type of sun protection that can stand up to the rigours of a day on the mountain. The sun's UV rays become much more intense at altitude even in foggy conditions and are 80 per cent more intense when reflected by snow and ice. Unlike many winter sport sunscreens that create a heavy greasy film on the surface of the skin, sun mousse is rapidly absorbed into the skin, where high performance sun filters work to provide immediate and effective UVA and UVB protection. What’s more, because the sun filters are rapidly absorbed into the skin, they are much less likely to be washed away through snow or even the sweat caused by skiing.
And if you plan to go straight from the slopes to bar, then sun mousse is for you as it is designed to be gentle and non greasy so it won’t clog the skin’s pores and won’t leave you looking like a sweaty mess after a day on the slopes. Sun mousse is suitable for all skin types, even delicate or sensitive skin and is perfect for all the family as it is also available in a special kids’ formulation.
The sun mousse is giving you the chance to win a winter skiing protection pack worth more than £160 - including top of the line Oakley O FRAME® snow goggles, plus sun mousse SPF 20, 30, and Kids 30. There are also two runners'-up prizes of three bottles of sun mousse. For your chance to win, simply answer the following question:
The competition ends on Monday 28 February.
