December is the perfect time to book your annual ski trip, complete with cozy evenings by the fire, hot cocoa and spending time with some of your favorite people. To help you pack for your weekend on the slopes, we put together a list of some necessary beauty products that will help remedy any dryness that occurs as a result of those brutally cold temps. From makeup to skin care and hair care, these picks are sure to keep you looking great and fully protected after a day of double diamonds or, ahem, the bunny hills — don’t worry, we don’t judge. 

What to Pack for Your Ski Trip: Lancôme UV Expert Aquagel Defense 50 Sunscreen
If you religiously follow a skin-care routine (which you should), you know that sunscreen is important all year-round. But considering you’re going to be spending most of your time outside on the slopes, it’s necessary to keep your skin protected with the Lancôme UV Expert Aquagel Sunscreen. It’s a double-duty oil-free primer and moisturizer with SPF 50 that gives lasting hydration and helps protect skin from sun damage.

What to Pack for Your Ski Trip: NYX Professional Makeup Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil
Opt for a low-effort but put-together makeup look during your trip. We love the NYX Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil because it’s a lightweight formula that evens out your skin tone and adds a thin but hydrating layer of coverage. 

What to Pack for Your Ski Trip: L'Oréal Paris Waterproof Bambi Eye Mascara
Adding a coat of mascara is a great way to complete your effortless vacay makeup look — but you’ll want to make sure that the formula is waterproof (cue aprés-ski sweat!). We love the new L'Oréal Paris Waterproof Bambi Eye Mascara because it instantly curls and volumizes your lashes, offering that cute doe-eyed effect. Plus, it won’t budge no matter how many slopes you hit.

What to Pack for Your Ski Trip: Glossier Balm Dot Com
Finish off your ski bunny makeup look with a hydrating tinted lip balm. The Glossier Balm Dot Com comes in seven fun flavors and works to nourish your dry lips while adding a subtle pop of color. 

What to Pack for Your Ski Trip: Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
Avoid the pain that is dry and chafed hands by using the Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve during your trip. The formula is made with avocado, eucalyptus and sesame seed oil that will leave your hands feeling soft and conditioned.

What to Pack for Your Ski Trip: Garnier Fructis Damage Repairing Hair Mask 
Odds are your hair is probably feeling the effects of the cold weather. Don’t worry, though. Use this Garnier hair mask that helps you get soft, smooth and nourished hair in as little as one minute.
