Nature fanatics can relate to the urge of wanting to leave the house quickly to spend time outside. Whatever gear you may need before your next big adventure—be it snowboarding pants, hiking boots, or a reusable water bottle—there’s one overlooked essential you must not forget: skin care. Wind burn, sun burn, polluted pores, dry, flaky skin—being outside can take a toll on our delicate bodies.
Needless to say, if you’re heading into nature, arm your skin with a brand that knows nature, like Ursa Major. Dubbed the ‘Patagonia’ of skin care by the Beauty Independent, the Vermont-based B Corp is formulated with powerful, natural actives found in the Great Outdoors. And it’s 40 percent off at its online storefront right now.

Brighten up your day with Ursa Major’s Vitamin C Serum. This lightweight and hydrating serum features derm-approved ingredients like glycerin, aloe, and of course, vitamin C. Glycerin, a humectant, draws moisture and water to your skin’s barrier, quenching parched skin cells, while aloe is rife with anti-inflammatory properties to banish redness (or treat the occasional sunburn…) Combined with vitamin C—which derms swear getting enough of inside and out—and a pump of this will keep the clouds (and angry skin) at bay.
Originally $32, now $23
This green tea- and aloe-rich tonic eliminates four different steps in your skin-care regimen, so you can cleanse, exfoliate, soothe, and hydrate in one fell swoop. “Green tea extract is a known source of high amounts of antioxidants,” which can protect the skin from environmental stressors, Rachel Nazarian, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist with Schweiger Dermatology, previously told Well+Good. Bonus points for other woodsy ingredients, like birch sap (which tones discoloration) and willow bark (a beta hydroxy acid that sloughs away dead cells.)
Originally $56, now $39
This amino-acid rich cream goes beyond the surface to deliver serious results. Infused with wild birch—which has a blend of amino acids, minerals, proteins, vitamins, and enzymes—this cream penetrates the barrier to nourish withered skin while improving elasticity (saggy eye skin, be gone). Also in the formula? Chaga, tremella, and pink snow algae, which are three fancy fungi known that are well worth foraging for, thanks to how well they improve collagen production, hydration, and more.
Originally $18, now $13
