Get Outdoors: Must-Have Wellness Items for Any Destination

Pack these wellness essentials for your next adventure in the outdoors… 

Now that summer Fridays and extended vacations are here, it’s time to set your out-of-office greeting and get out of town. Depending on where you’re heading — straight for the sea-salty air of the beach or the high-altitude climate of the mountains (or anywhere in between) — we rounded up the best wellness essentials you’ll want to bring with you to stay glowing and radiant on the go.


Your Destination: The Beach

Skin is Good My Calming Cooler: After a long, hot day at the beach, cool your skin with this orb-like device. Just spread any cream or serum on the base and then glide it over your face to bring down inflammation (tip: store in the fridge at your Airbnb or hotel room).

Ere Perez Quandong Green Booster Serum: Layer this antioxidant-rich serum under your SPF to minimize any potential damage from those UV rays!

Coola Classic Sport SPF 50: Keep your skin protected with a high-level, water-resistant mineral sunscreen that can withstand a workout on the beach!

Luna Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion: Tan the safe way — with a botanical-based bronzer that gradually brings out and maintains your glow without requiring any time spent baking in the sun.

Playa Supernatural Conditioner: Slather this on pre- and post-swim for soft, shiny hair (salt water and chlorine from pools can be a killer!).

Tangle Teezer On The Go Metallic Detangling Brush: Perhaps the chic-est detangler on the planet that works to remove windy-day-snarls without pulling delicate strands.

Sakara Life Rosemary Kale, Nori and Chia Tortillas chips: Because you need snacks for the beach! And these are packed with energizing superfoods to keep you feeling light but sustained.



Your Destination: The Mountains

Salt & Stone SPF 30: Natural UV filters and herbal extracts keep your face shielded while you hike and trek through the woods.

Thistle Farms Natural Bug Spray: Fend off mosquitos and critter bites with this DEET-free option that’s spiked with organic, bug-repellant rose geranium oil.

Schmidt’s Deodorant Stick: This natural stick won’t spill in your pack!

R+Co Spiritualized Dry Shampoo Mist: If you’re out camping and won’t have access to a shower for a bit, this mist works like a micellar face wash to absorb dirt and oil without requiring any water.

Kalumi Health Marine Collagen Protein Bars: Not into trail mix? Toss these bars in your backpack for 15 grams of delicious, plant-based protein.

-Macmillian Floss: Don’t let good hygiene slip while you’re out in the wilderness and as an added bonus this floss comes with a hand mirrored case.



Your Destination: Anywhere!

Juice Beauty SPF Tinted Moisturizer: Streamline your packing with this tinted BB cream that moisturizes, evens out your tone and protects with SPF 30.  

-January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist + Moisture Renew Mask: Defend your face against pollution and environmental damage this combo—the mist seals in antioxidants while the leave-on mask repairs your skin overnight.

Everyday Oil: This versatile cold-pressed botanical oil is like the Swiss Army knife of skincare—use it as a body moisturizer, face wash, deep conditioner for your hair, cuticle oil, after-sun oil, bath soak or anything else you can think of!

-Eyeko Mascara Off Eye Makeover Remover Wipes: On those nights you stay up super late (hey, you’re on vacation, right?) take off your makeup in two seconds with these soothing wipes.

Sphynx Portable Razor: This genius, palm-size razor comes with a built-in balm so you can shave even if you don’t have access to a shower.
