As you prepare for the festival season, it's essential not to neglect your skincare routine. The combination of the outdoor elements, unpredictable weather, and late nights can take a toll on your skin. 

Here are our festival skincare tips to keep your skin healthy, glowing, and protected. From maintaining your routine to smart packing and hygiene practices, we've got you covered!

How to stick to your skincare routine at a festival:

How to streamline your products at a festival:

Packing light is essential for festivals, and skincare should be no exception.

  • Consider decanting your favourite products into travel-size containers. 
  • Opt for multipurpose products like a tinted SPF to protect the skin and top up your make-up throughout the day. We recommend Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush on Sunscreen.
  • Choose products with minimal packaging or sample sizes to reduce waste and make the most of your space

Think smart storage solutions:

  • Use small, leak-proof containers or jars to store your decanted skincare products securely. 
  • Utilise resealable bags to separate your skincare items and prevent any spills or leaks from damaging your clothes or other belongings.
  • Consider investing in a clear, waterproof toiletry bag to easily locate and access your skincare essentials.

Protection Against the Elements:

Festival days can (fingers crossed) be long and sunny, so sun protection is crucial. 

Hygiene Hacks:

Festival environments can be crowded, which means it's vital to prioritise hygiene.

  • Carry hand sanitiser or wet wipes to clean your hands before touching your face or applying skincare products.
  • Use a gentle facial mist or micellar water to freshen up throughout the day without disturbing your makeup. We recommend Bioderma Micellar Water or Q+A Hyaluronic Facial Mist for something simple and for daily use. 

Refresh and Rehydrate:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the festival. Dehydration can leave your skin dull and dry.
  • Pack a facial mist or hydrating spray to spritz your face and revive your skin during the day. We recommend Dear Klairs Fundamental Ampoule Mist 
  • Brighten even the most tired of eyes with a light eye cream full of goodness. We recommend Neostrata Brightening Eye Cream 
  • Opt for refreshing sheet masks or hydrating facial masks to give your skin a nourishing boost in the evening.

By following these festival skincare tips, you'll be well-equipped to enjoy the festival while maintaining radiant and nourished skin.
