Winter is here, and that’s a fact we all have to face. It’s time to pull the heaviest coats out of your closet, reach for your richest moisturizer, and try to stave off the cold until spring arrives. What most people forget to do, though, is swap out all of the everyday products in their bags for those that are better suited to winter climes. From lip balm and lotion to tissues and gloves, here’s what we’ve got in our bags to combat the cold this winter.

Hand Cream

Whether it’s from the indoor heat or the cold, dry weather outdoors, keeping your skin moisturized can be quite the challenge during the winter months. When you’re on the go especially, a good hand cream can help keep your hands comfortable and soft, and this shea butter formula from L’Occitane is ultra rich and moisturizing. Not only that, but it’s also packed with honey and almond extract, and even absorbs quickly to deliver the moisture you need fast.

Facial Spray

It’s not always easy to slather extra moisturizer on your face throughout the day, especially if you’re someone who likes to wear a full face of makeup. With this hydrating mist, you can give your skin a boost of moisture anytime to combat dryness, tightness, and flaking. With rosewater and herb extracts, it’s the perfect skin pick-me-up no matter where you are.

Static Control Hairspray

Dryness in the air can lead to excessive dryness when it comes to your hair, too. Unfortunately, extra dryness can also come with lots of static-charged flyaways, and that’s not a look that anyone wants. This spray uses vitamin E and argan oil to help keep your hair soft, shiny, and moisturized throughout the day. Just give your locks a few spritzes when you need them and your hair will look freshly washed and healthy, no matter how low the temps go.

Static Guard

Just like your hair, your clothes can also collect static electricity when the weather is dry and cold. Though it might not be possible to get rid of it entirely, you can use this spray to keep it from accumulating in your clothes and shocking you throughout the day or causing unwanted clinging. It can even help prevent pet hair from gathering on your clothes, and loosen stubborn fur from the fibers.

Lip Balm

Our lips often suffer the most during cold weather months, as our faces tend to be exposed to the cold more than any other part of our bodies. To keep the skin of your lips soft and flake free, make sure to keep a tin or tube of lip balm in your bag at all times. This Rosebud Salve can double as a moisturizer for any part of the body, so it’s great for days when your skin needs all the moisture it can get.

Gloves

On cold days, the difference between feeling frigid and comfortable can often come down to the accessories you have on. Gloves not only keep your hands feeling warm while you’re out and about, but they can also help your skin stay soft. These leather gloves are even equipped with touchscreen fingertips so they can be used with cell phones, and they’re also lined with fleece meaning they’re ultra warm.

Hand Sanitizer

Winter weather tends to bring about illnesses that never stop spreading—namely the cold and flu. Don’t rely on there being hand sanitizer where you’re going—just pack your own in your bag. This version includes aloe in the ingredient list, ensuring your hands stay soft and hydrated in addition to being clean.

Emergen-C

To take your anti-illness regimine to the next level, keeping a few packets of Emergen-C in your purse could be the difference between getting sick and not. Each packet just gets mixed with water to give your body a punch of vitamin C, vitamin D, and electrolytes that will help keep you healthy and energized all winter long.

Kleenex

Whether you’re sick or not, sometimes staying in the cold for too long can make your nose run, which can be uncomfortable and awkward. Don’t rely on everyone else to have tissues in their bags—keep a travel pack in yours. We guarantee you’ll need them at some point, and they may even help you save the day for someone else.

Eye Drops

Even if you’re just spending a small amount of time outdoors on a cold day, your eyes can get dried out just as easily as your skin. Even after winter gives way to spring, if you work in front of a computer, keeping eye drops in your bag can help keep your eyes comfortable all year long. The effects are immediate and last for hours so you can enjoy your day without worry or discomfort.
