When it comes to an activity such as hiking, you have to be extra vigilant with packing your bags. Hiking trails don't really have convenience stores you can run to when in a pinch. Therefore, you should always double-check if you have everything you need. This, of course, includes your emergency beauty kit. So here, we enumerated 10 must-haves for a worry-free trek!
1. Facial Sunscreen
You probably already have yours packed, but we're reminding you anyway.

2. Cushion Puff
Cushion puffs come in handy for reapplying your sunscreen. Because instead of using your dirt-stained hands, you can pat the product on your face with it!

3. Body Suncreen
This one's a no-brainer as well because reapplying body sunscreen is especially important. And for convenience, bring one you can easily spray on during water breaks.

4. Lip Balm with SPF
Yes, your lips need sun protection, too! We bet they'll eventually get dry as well, so swipe some balm on every few hours to keep them comfy and moisturized.

When your skin's feeling a little parched and dry, give it a quick spritz of your favorite face mist.

6. After-sun Gel
All the sunscreen we pack are in hopes that you won't get a sunburn. But in case you still do, carrying a soothing gel in your backpack is a savior.

Your two worst enemies when hiking: the sun and mosquito bites. Arm yourself with a non-toxic bug shield!
