It’s that time of year again. Days are getting shorter, nights are getting longer, and the search for hygge inspiration is endless. One of our favorite parts about the winter season is planning a trip to the mountains. It’s a chance to unwind, connect with nature, and have some fun in a winter wonderland. To make sure you get the most out of your trip, we’ve rounded up the five ski trip essentials to pack this winter.
Where Ever You Choose To Travel This Winter, Packing These Five Essentials Will Keep You Cozy, Glowing, And Ready To Hit The Slopes.
Bone Broth Travel Powder
Bone broth is nourishing way to get your daily dose of collagen, nutrients, and essential amino acids. It tastes even better when you need a warm pick me up on those cold winter days. We’ve tried our fair share of bone broth (for better or for worse). But this one from LonoLife has us hooked.
Our favorite part about this particular bone broth? The individually packaged sachets make it easy to use and travel with. All you have to do is add hot water and voila – delicious bone broth.
LonoLife’s grass-fed beef bone broth powder features 10 grams of Protein and is Paleo and Keto Friendly. Plus, it’s only 50 calories so you can drink it while on a ‘fast’ [if you’re into that sort of thing]. The blend of natural herbs and spices tastes amazing and will warm your tummy and soul.
Four Sigmatic Mushroom Cacao
Just looking at a snowy winter scene makes us crave a cup of hot cocoa. Unfortunately, the sugar-packed options at most ski resorts can increase inflammation in skin that’s already been compromised by dry mountain air.
To get the best of both worlds we turn to our trusty Mushroom Cacao Mix from Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic’s individually packaged hot cacao is a ski trip essential we never forget to pack.
Their delicious formula features a little dose of Reishi for extra chill after a long day on the slopes. We love to substitute hot water for warm macadamia nut milk and top with vegan marshmellows (you might want to pack those too).
Hydrating Face Mask
Wind, sun, altitude, oh my. Even skiing in California has us craving a moisture giving mask at the end of a ski-sesh. If you’re venturing to the great states of Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming or Montana for your ski getaway, you’ll definitely want to pack a hydrating mask to combat the dry air, wind, and sun you’ll be getting on the mountain.
We love Cosmedix Hydrating Rescue Balm and Mask formulated with nourishing Shea Butter, soothing Cherry, and redness-reducing Willowherb. You can use it as an overnight moisturizing mask or as a spot treatment balm.
CBD Muscle Rub
CBD has gained momentum in the wellness industry as of late for its well documented anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and stress relieving properties. One of our favorite ways to use CBD is topically as a treatment for sore muscles. It feels especially wonderful after spending a long day out on the slopes.
We love the broad spectrum formula from Tribe CBD which is loaded with the calming compound. While CBD is the new kid on our ski trip essentials to pack list, it’s quickly becoming something we can’t do without.
Featuring the added benefits of Chamomile, Aloe Vera, and Arnica, Tribe’s cooling and healing formula works in a jiffy to relieve muscle pain. Our favorite is using it on sore feet after a day spent in ski boots.
Sport Sunscreen Stick
Spending all day high in the mountains calls for you to level up your SPF game. That’s why we love to pack a stick of high performance sun protection like Surf Mud Pro or Suntegrity’s Mineral Sunstick. These babies are the layers we never forget before we boot up. Their small size and stick formula also make them perfect for sticking in your jacket pocket. A key element in your ability to re-apply throughout the day.
When you’re out facing the elements, you need a sunscreen that stays put for as long as possible. And these babies won’t let you down. To remove, make sure to use an oil based cleanser on dry skin first, then rinse with warm water. Follow with a cream or foaming cleanser for double cleansing magic.
