Music festival season is finally here, and we can’t wait to listen to the sounds of summer while we dance the days away. You might already have your wardrobe ready to go, but have you planned to keep your skin healthy? The sun, dirt, and sweat can leave you looking dull and dry.
Don’t worry. We’re here with our top tips to keep you glowing all season long.
First things first, prep your skin right. A facial that is hydrating is ideal for an extended time in the sun. Try one of our super-hydrating, botanical-rich facials to brighten and plump the skin, giving you a natural radiance.
Lather on the SPF.
If the weather is right, you will be soaking up lots of glorious sunshine, which means you need to use high-quality sunscreen to prevent damage and burns.
Look for products containing at least SPF 25, and natural sunscreens like zinc or titanium dioxide. Use a mattifying sunscreen so you look luminous, not oily.
Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen to the festival to re-apply every 1-1.5 hours. Hot Tip! An easy way to re-apply SPF to your face on the go is with a sunscreen powder.
Drinking enough water is key to maintaining your glowing skin and avoiding dehydration. Water hydrates and cleanses by washing out toxins that you don’t want to show up as blemishes later.
Make hydration easy by bringing a reusable water bottle to fill up throughout the day.
Your lips need both hydration and SPF too! Use a moisturizing lip balm with sunscreen throughout the day to keep them protected. A great lip balm for music festivals is one that squeezes to avoid a melted mess in your bag.
Wash your face.
Cleansing your skin should already be a part of your daily beauty routine. It is especially essential after spending the day outside. If you’re camping at a music festival this season and don’t have access to running water, bring some facial cleansing wipes.
Facial cleansing wipes are the winner when you can’t wash your face. They multitask by breaking down make-up and dirt while cleansing and hydrating.
Now that your flawless skin is music festival-ready, don’t forget to dance, dance, dance… your way to DashBar for a few well-earned beauty treatments.
