Counter Aspen's rugged environment with these hydrating skincare regimens.
Packed with vitamins and organic extracts, this trinity of top-of-the-line products revives, revitalizes, and hydrates the moneymakers of Aspen’s always-out-of-doors crowd.
Skin not so soft? Aspen’s extremely dry climate—coupled with an altitude that puts the damaging effects of the sun that much closer to your skin—means that normal beauty routines often aren’t enough. Enter these new products, designed with our harsh conditions in mind, to leave skin repaired, refreshed, and hydrated.
Tata Harper, which grows and manufactures all of its 100-percent nontoxic products at its Vermont farm and laboratory, created this cleanser to combat the daily wear and tear of environmental exposure by clearing pores of excess oil, dead skin, and buildup—while maintaining the skin’s moisture balance. Cos Bar Aspen, 309 S. Galena St., 970-925-6249
The entire Intraceuticals line is built on the fact that dehydration is one of the major causes of skin aging. This gel for the oft-neglected eye area successfully minimizes the appearance of fine lines and helps to soothe the appearance of tired and overworked eyes. The Spa at Viceroy Snowmass, 130 Wood Road, Snowmass, 970- 923-8000
Dry and cracked lips are one of the first effects of a high-altitude climate. This lip repair uses organic mānuka honey, myrrh extract, and healing lanolin to soothe and heal lips in just one day. Osmia Organics, 2607 Dolores Way, Carbondale, 970-510-6610
