Over the holidays, I’m gunning for a week on the slopes in Telluride, Colorado, where, après-ski, I will head to the revamped Peaks Spa for a deep-tissue sports massage. Yet even with that pampering on the program, I’m packing these skin-saving salves along with my parka (above, from left):

Karuna Exfoliating + Foot Mask ($11, Fifteen minutes in these paper socks will melt away callouses.

Darphin 8-Flower Nectar Oil Cream ($135, Scented with ylang-ylang and jasmine, this buttery salve not only quenches wind-whipped skin, it also provides bedtime aromatherapy.

Make Twilight Lip Oil Remover ($12, Yes, it removes lipstick, but more exciting is how incredibly soft
it leaves my kisser.

Pixi by Petra Nourishing Cleansing Balm ($20, Almond oil and cocoa and shea butters make this solid pomade-like formula ultra-nourishing.

Tata Harper Skincare Soothing Muscle Gel ($40, Arnica reduces swelling, while cooling silver fir, ginger, and citrus ease aches and pains.

Nannie Inez Rosemary Mint Juniper Sugar Scrub ($32, This oil-based skin-sloughing body scrub has a warming, menthol-y eucalyptus aroma.

Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Moisture Jelly Cream ($8, Despite its light, fluffy texture, this highly humectant cream shields skin against everything from icy air to itchy wool pants.

37 Actives High Performance Anti Aging Treatment Foundation ($165, I love makeup that has protective ingredients; this one contains the antioxidants resveratrol
and ginkgo biloba.

We Love Eyes Eyelid & Eyelash Makeup Remover Oil ($26, It erases mascara and is so moisturizing, you can skip the eye cream.

Earth Tu Face Honey + Coconut Mask ($52, This thick, hydrating goop is so messy, you may need
a bib. But it’s worth it.
