Vacation Solutions: Healing Miracle to Treat Windburned Skin | bluemercury

Marla Beck Barry Beck Bluemercury Aspen Spring Break

Last week I went out to Aspen skiing with Barry and the kids for spring break. I always bring a ton of products for the cold, dry weather and this time I packed almost a whole suitcaseful – who knows what I would need in my toolkit.


For the first two days I used the basics – SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 on me (I like the tint to even out my skin tone), and SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 on the kids and Barry.  Everyone was also armed with either Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 or Fresh Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment zipped into their ski jackets for chapped lips (it works on hands and noses too, by the way).

By day three it was windy and we all came back with windburned, red cheeks and noses. It was worse than a sunburn! Digging through my cosmetics first aid toolkit, I went back to old faithful: La Mer's Crème de la Mer, the original. Created by Max Huber, an aerospace physicist on a mission to heal a burn he experienced in his laboratory, this cream is IT.  It was the only thing the whole family used on our faces post-skiing. A miracle cream for sure.


We also all switched to La Mer's The Reparative Face Sun Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Although it provides less coverage, it has the same Miracle Broth super-healer in the cream – and we all needed that daily. Many of you know I love La Mer creams and serums. This past week, the whole family loved La Mer!!!
