 EVERYBODY KNOWS THE SKI PATROL; NOW, MEET THE SKIN PATROL
 TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- WARNING: Prolonged exposure to sunlight is harmful and may cause skin cancer. The Ski Patrol has been a common sight warning to skiers about the hazards of the slopes. Now, meet the Body Glove Skin Patrol, a team of young, active, sports enthusiasts that will take to the slopes to advise skiers on how to take care of their skin and hair during winter.
 The Skin Patrol will be providing people with tips and introducing the Body Glove Professional Sports Formula Skin and Hair Care line. These products were specially formulated for active individuals who need moisturizing and protection against the sun, snow and wind.
 Heather Barry, one of the models that will be skiing at such slopes as Mammoth and Squaw Valley, says the most important things to remember when you're on the slopes is: "To always wear a sunblock of at least an SPF 8, even if it's overcast. The sun is still out even if there is a cloud cover. Since snow reflects sunlight, this intensifies the risk of sun damage to the skin, hair and lips."
 "One of the new inventions we will be introducing this season is the Sports Tie," said Barry. "The Sports Tie contains a 1 oz. bottle of the Waterproof Sunblock SPF 25, Waterproof Lip Balm, and a card which provides skin care tips. The clear plastic pouch can be worn around the neck and can also hold keys, money and credit cards."
 Additional tips for the winter weather include: proper moisturizing -- it is necessary to replenish what the skin loses from dry air, wind or excessive water contact. It is important to use products that protect as well as moisturize. The Body Glove Moisturizing Lotion is excellent because it is made from 17 natural plant amino acids which bond together to replicate collagen (what skin is made of) and help protect the skin.
 The hair and scalp are also vulnerable to the weather conditions. The Sun Reflective Leave-In Conditioner contains sunscreens that protect the hair and scalp from sun and wind burn. This product has been a popular request from people with thinning hair.
 "The lips are very susceptible to the weather," said Dr. Jeffrey Lauber, medical director of the Advance Skin Surgery Center in Orange County. "It is important to use products that moisturize and condition the lips so they won't crack and burn."
 The Body Glove Professional Sports Formula Skin and Hair Care products were formulated by a world renowned cosmetic chemist, tested and recommended by dermatologists and athletes. A Complete Year-Round Skin and Hair Care Solution made from natural plant amino acids and green tea, the products moisturize as they protect. The products are biodegradable, recyclable and not tested on animals.
 The Body Glove Professional Sports Formula Skin and Hair Care line is available at grocery, drug and retail stores nationwide. For the store nearest you, call the toll-free number 800-336-9135.
