A few reasons why we should give our skin some extra love and attention while living in Colorado. As a native, I’ve observed firsthand just how much our dry, sunny, high-altitude climate affects the skin. Don’t worry, high altitude skincare can be easy with just a few tricks and LOTS of moisture.
Did you know…
for every 1000-foot increase in elevation, UV levels raise between 10-20%
reflection from the snow increases UV intensity by 85%
skin begins to lose moisture when the humidity drops below 60% (average humidity in Denver is under 45!)
the body becomes more dehydrated in colder weather as it tries to keep itself warm
