How to prepare your skin for festival season

Festival season can be hell

If you’re like me, skin care is one of the most important things to do for self-care. I use a variety of products, especially when it’s hot and I’m constantly sweating; cute right?

Taking care of your skin on the daily is already hard enough, but trying to do it while you’re at a music festival seems even harder. There are so many excuses that you could tell yourself as to why you shouldn’t moisturize your face or take off your makeup, but trust me, you will regret it if you don’t! Here are some products that I swear by at music festivals that are both easy to use and will leave your skin feeling like a star:

1. Moisture Surge™ Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief

I cannot tell you how many times this Clinique face spray has saved my life in the summer. It’s easy to take everywhere and even easier to use. You just have to spray it on your face and let it set, don’t even have to rub it in. Doesn’t get any easier, folks!

2. Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Cucumber And Green Tea

Apparently I love me a good facial spray! This Urban Outfitters one that will make your face feel super fresh especially when it’s hot and muggy outside and you’ve been dancing for three hours straight. You can use it before you put on your makeup, after as a setting spray or just any time during the day when you feel like your face needs a little pick me up. Also, there are other facial sprays so pick whichever one sticks out to you the most.

3.Take the Day Off™ Micellar Cleansing Towelettes for Face & Eyes

People, TAKE YOUR MAKEUP OFF!!! I know, I’ve been there it is the worst part of the night because it’s so much work to take it off but you need to do it. You’ll feel 100% better after you do, I promise. These Clinique makeup wipes will make it ten times easier to do it, they’re soft and won’t cause irritation (speaking for myself).

4. Supergoop! SPF 50 Sunscreen Glow Stick

The truth is, we neglect our face of sunscreen in the summer. We always put it all over our bodies, but if you’re like me, you don’t want your face to feel heavy and oily especially if you’re wearing makeup. We all know that highlighting is super in right now so I found the perfect mix of protection and brightness. This Urban Outfitters product will give you the brightening glow effect you want while also protecting your face from those sun rays. It’s also cute and small so you can pop it right in your purse.

5. Smith's Rosebud Lip Balm Tube

This Urban Outfitters lip balm has been used by so many of my friends, that I just had to buy it for myself. The hype is worth it, my friends. This leaves your lips feeling soft and hydrated. We often forget that our lips need a little lovin’ too and carmex just isn’t going to do the trick. Not only will it hydrate your lips, but it will give them that extra oomph they need.
