The Holidays are here! That means festive parties, excessive amounts of food and hopefully the opportunity to travel to see friends and family or just to get away. Don't let the lines and increased security get in your way! Follow these tips to pack your Dopp Kit and always be ready.
1. Keep Under 3 Oz. (If Carry On)
This should be nothing new. The frequent traveller has adapted to this policy over the last few years, but it is just important to remember when throwing everything into your bag last second. No one wants to have to throw out their daily care essentials before you have even embarked to your final destination. Keep it under 3 Oz. and breeze through the airport.
2. Pack Game Day's Moisturizer: Hydrator + SPF30+
You never know what the day will throw at you, especially when you are away from home. Our Moisturizer: Hydrator + SPF30+ is the perfect way to protect you from the elements no matter if you are on the ski slopes or relaxing on the beach. Keeping your skin hydrated and protected with SPF is essential while traveling.
3. First-Aid Essentials
We've all been there. You get to your destination, go out and the next day lose half your vacation hungover in bed. Make sure you have everything you will need to get through the trip packed before you leave and save time. Keeping some Advil, Tums, bandages, anti-biotics, etc. These little additions to your Dopp Kit can be a lifesaver.
Is Lip Balm really that important? Remember, even though your lips may only be chapped in the winter does not mean that your lips are not exposed, or effected by the elements. Your lips are some of the thinnest skin on your body, and they are always exposed. Make sure you protect your lips TODAY and keep them soft, moist and healthy while also protected from harmful UV rays.
Make sure you choose a Lip Balm that is SPF boosted. This is essential as sun-damage leads to premature aging and potentially skin cancer and other skin disease. Make sure to apply regularly throughout the day to keep your skin protected. No matter if you are on the ski mountain, beach, hike or sitting in the office, making sure your lips are protected from UV damage can make that much more of a difference years down the road.
Lip Balm also hydrates the skin. This is essential to keep skin strong and healthy. It will also help your lips appear more full, healthier and younger. Keeping your skin hydrated will also allow it to heal quicker if it was to get chapped or cracked. Choose one that is formulated with natural beeswax as it will naturally help heal and hydrate the lips. Taking care of your lips is easy, but necessary. Start now, make it a habit, and your lips will be strong and healthy for years to come.
Your thirties are an exciting time! You and your friends are starting to settle down, start a family and enjoy some of the hard work you have put in since you graduated college. Your body is still young but your mind is begging to get wise. Your thirties are a great time to set good skincare habits to help combat the aging process that there just is not escaping. Follow these steps and no one will believe that you aren't still in your twenties.
1. Watch the Eyes
The first place where signs of aging will begin to show will be the eyes. Make sure to keep this area moisturized in both the AM and PM. Look for signs of crows feet and wrinkles around the eyes. The wear and tear of time on your body will begin to diminish the skin's ability to hold moisture and this will lead to wrinkles and bags under the eyes. Keep it moisturized and keep the wrinkles away.
2. Address your Forehead
This is the second place where you will start to see signs of aging. You want to address the signs as soon as possible. If you start to see extra wrinkles on your forehead, put a bit of extra effort into keeping the area hydrated and protected. Even a dab of our Moisturizer: Hydrator + SPF30+ will go a long way to keep the years at bay.
3. Keep an Active Lifestyle
There is no better way to stay looking young than to keep an active lifestyle. Make sure you train your body to have balance, as loss of balance is one of the first areas where the body will start to break down. You may not have as much flexibility as when you were young, but keeping your body in shape will keep it engaged and healthy. An unhealthy lifestyle will cause premature aging and no one wants that.
Winter is upon us, and that means harsh conditions leading to dry and chapped skin. Skiers and mountain climbers have long understood the importance of proper winter skincare in order to stay healthy, comfortable and at top performance. As the seasons change, so does your skin’s needs. By taking proper care of your skin and acting before there is a problem, you can save yourself a lot of discomfort later on. Follow these simple skin care tips and you will be well on your way to proper winter skin protection.
Don’t think that just because you are not on a beach in the 80-degree sun that your skin is safe. You still must cover up with at least an SPF 30 sun-screen or SPF moisturizer. Make sure to cover your entire face and ears. You also must use an SPF boosted Lip Balm. Your lips will be the most exposed and also have some of the thinnest skin on your body, so making sure they are protected is essential. There is just no other way to protect you skin from the sun. Keep in mind that over eighty percent of the sun’s rays can even get through the clouds on a cloudy and snow actually reflects the UV rays, making them even more abundant. Cover up before you are outside and you will be well on your way to protecting yourself from the rigors of winter.
Protect Against Windburn
With winter comes much harsher winds that can take a toll on the body. Not only are the winds typically stronger and of colder air, but they can also carry snow and ice that cuts and freezes the face. Make sure to protect against windburn with a moisturizer and a scarf or some other form of facial coverage. If you are skiing, shoveling snow, etc. look for a facemask or balaclava that will stay on easily as you move and not interfere with your movements. For work choose a scarf for versatility and a more professional look. When choosing a moisturizer look for one that has no alcohol in it and is made to hydrate the skin. You would be shocked at how many moisturizers have alcohol which in itself dries the skin and will only make the situation worse. Find one with oatmeal or pear cactus extract which hydrate the skin and lock in moisture.
You will need to moisturize more whether you are inside or out. The cold air just sucks the moisture out of your skin. Your face, your hands your body. There is no avoiding it. Make sure to moisturize extra in the winter. Pay special attention to moisturize your entire body after a shower. This will help lock in moisture and you won’t forget to do it. Carry a hand and facial moisturizer around in your car, backpack or briefcase and use it often. The more proactive you are, the less likely you are to end up with completely dry and cracked skin.
Take a Warm Shower
While a hot shower might be relaxing and a nice way to get out of the cold, it is not the best thing for your skin in the winter. Take a warm shower instead of an intense hot shower and you will be taking steps to keep moisture in your skin. Hot showers break down your skin’s lipid barrier, which is helps lock in the moisture.
Make sure you exfoliate to scrub away dead skin. The Game Day Pre-Shave Invigorating Scrub is a great choice to not only eliminate dead skin cells, but it also helps to lift the hairs on your face before your shave. Not only is exfoliating beneficial to your appearance, but also to your health. By gently scrubbing away the dry, dead skin you remove imperfections and promote fresh, healthy skin. Additionally exfoliating will help your moisturizer absorb into your skin and lock in more moisture. Win win situation for winter. Exfoliate your face, hands and body, taking special care anywhere you have dry skin. Make sure you moisturize after for maximum benefit.
