Going on a weekend getaway this winter? Here's everything you'll need. 

The snow is no excuse not to be protecting your skin. This lightweight, oil-free sunscreen is infused with hydrating honeysuckle and antioxidant filled white tea to lock in moisture, perfect for protecting skin on the slopes or at the pool!

Olay Fresh Effects Moisture Lotion With SPF, $14.99, Walgreens.com

Our lips often bear the brunt of winter suffering. Protect against dry, chapped, wind and sunburned lips, and reapply every few hours. 

Nivea Kiss of Milk & Honey, $2.99, Drugstore.com


No matter where your travels take you, packing light is never an easy feat. The new Drunk Elephant Marula Oil is TSA approved and can handle a ridiculous amount of your winter getaway needs in one place. Use it to hydrate and heal your skin and hands, and also on hair to tame and smooth strands.

Virgin Marula Facial Oil, $72, drunkelephant.com

A great total body moisturizer is super important, especially on ski trips that involve high-altitude areas. This means low humidity and bitter chill outside, and dry heat from forced hot air inside. 

Bliss Body Butter, $29, Blissworld.com

After escaping the cold, your need to protect your skin has not ended. A really intense night cream can be everything to restore hydration. B-leve's natural grape extract technology helps revitalize skin cells that have been damaged by UV-induced stresses.

B-Leve Anti-Aging Night Cream, $18.99, b-leve.com

Pale may be the new tan, but it doesn't have to be. If your skin is showing the sad signs of being covered up for way too long, give it the faux touch of color and glow it craves without going to the tanning salon.  

Tantasia Self Tanner and Bronzer, $36, JaneIredale.com

Those ski lessons can be mighty stressful - and that's before we try to climb out of all that gear we have to wear! Stress sweat comes from a different gland, causing more bacteria and more odor, meaning you'll be smelling all sorts of unfresh by apres ski. Secret's new Clinical Strength collection is the first to be offered in a clear gel or invisible solid, which is a must for a weekend where you'll be sweating. 

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant, $8.99, CVS.com

Grandma always knew best. Ponds may be over a century old, but it's still an amazing option for moisturizing dry skin. Never make the mistake of using a drying cleanser when in windy winter chills. 

Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser, $4.49, Drugstore.com
