As the weather warms up what better way to spend a weekend than at an outdoor concert or festival?
Friends, drinks, music is in the air and the food trucks are calling.
Friends, drinks and music... all sounds great, but don’t forget that that extreme heat, lots of sunshine, and cocktails can take a toll on your skin!
Here are some beauty essentials for festival season so you can enjoy yourself without worry.
1. Get glowing with a sheet mask.
Before you get going, here's how to get glowing: a seaweed sheet mask.
As featured on The Spa Insider's Ultimate Music Festival Beauty Guide, our Lamina Lift Hydrating Seaweed Mask will leave your skin hydrated, refreshed, glowing and ready for pictures.
The mask can also be used post-festival to give your parched skin the revival it needs!
2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
So, you’re shielded from the sun – but how do you defeat the heat throughout the day?
Bring a pocket-size party favor – a refreshing facial spray!
One spritz can be just as refreshing as the water bottles with fans that your mom would spritz you with at Disney when you were young, but much more chic!
Trust us, when you’ve been going all day, a facial mist can be like a breath of fresh air for your skin.
3. Bring a body guard - for your skin!
Just like Taylor Swift wouldn’t go to Coachella without her body guard, don’t think twice about going anywhere this summer without yours – for your skin that is.
Why do we stress protecting your skin? Because the sun is super-powerful. In fact, the sun’s rays are so powerful that it is said that up to 90% of changes in your skin over a lifetime are due to the sun.(Learn more about what the sun does to your skin.)
4. If you skip #3…
If you layer on the protection, you won’t have to worry BUT in the event you don’t and forget your floppy hat, and find your face sunburned don’t let it go untreated. Start soothing and cooling it!
Apply a cooling gel that contains more than aloe vera. Ingredients like green tea extract and cucumber cool down your skin and give it some much needed TLC.
Ever heard of Thermus thermophiles? It’s a bit of a tongue twister, BUT, this is sea-derived ingredient is able to survive in extreme conditions and temperatures – just like a serial festival-goer – and is a super-ingredient for helping to sooth the appearance of sunburnt skin.
Now that you have the essentials to protect, refresh and repair your skin, the only thing on your mind will be how to hit up the food truck before your favorite band hits the main stage!
