Ecotools Dry Body Brush ($5)

Dry brushing and cool showers are the keys to scrubbing off a day’s worth of ski-hill sweat without leaving skin stripped and itchy. Gently buff with these synthetic bristles before you jump in the shower, and keep the water a hair colder than you usually would while you soap up and rinse off.

Brooklyn Grooming Pilgrim’s Facial Serum ($36) 

Think of this light oil as moisturizing winter armor for skin, hair, and whiskers. It’s loaded with fatty acids from pumpkin, hemp, and carrot seeds and absorbs in seconds with no trace of grease.

Lush Soak and Float Shampoo Bar ($15) and Tin ($4) 

Hats and helmets wreak havoc on the scalp. Treat it to a scrub-down with this bar full of flake- and microbe-banishing cedar and juniper oils. It’s good for the rest of your gunky dermis, too.

MD Solar Sciences Mineral Crème SPF 30 Sunscreen ($30)

Zinc oxide is just as good for chilling out your skin as it is for blocking harmful UV rays. MD Solar Sciences pairs it with silica and green tea extract for a silky, residue-free lotion that does all that and also helps guard against windburn.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask ($26)

This sweet, sticky balm locks onto lips and eradicates chap- ping better than any stick of wax. If the shiny look isn’t your thing, slather it on before bed and wake up to a crack-free kisser; but if it is, this balm also comes in flattering rose gold and soft red tints.

Soapwalla Deodorant Cream ($14)

The cake-frosting texture takes some getting used to, but the mix of plant oils, baking soda, and kaolin clay will keep you (and your synthetic long johns) fresh enough to pass the sniff test for days on end.
