With Summer upon us, you may be planning an exciting weekend at a music festival. With events occurring all over the country, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy your favourite bands in the sun and enjoy time spent making memories with your friends. However, the disruption to your regular skincare routine can be disastrous for your skin, leading to dryness or breakouts that can be difficult to get back under control. At Health and Aesthetic clinic, we’ve put together our top festival skincare tips for festival-goers to help you maintain healthy, clear skin this summer.
Keep it Cleansed
If you’re spending the weekend in a muddy field surrounded by thousands of other revellers, you’re bound to get a little grimy. It is important to make sure you keep your skin of anything that could aggravate your skin and cause nasty breakouts. Packing a bottle of rinse-free micellar water and cotton wool pads, or even face wipes, will help you do so when access to running water is limited and can make the world of difference in maintaining the health of your skin.
If your skin is prone to dryness, you’ll know the importance of using a good moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated, particularly when you’re spending the majority of your time outdoors. When heading to a festival, try and pack a moisturiser that you know can be used day and night to keep skin healthy, smooth, and flake-free.
Protect From The Sun
The importance of sun protection is not to be underestimated! When you attend a festival, you’re guaranteed to be spending plenty of time outside, and avoiding sun exposure isn’t always possible. Choose a product with a high SPF and make sure you reapply during the day to reduce the harmful effect of the sun’s rays on the skin. You can even bring a hat to help shade your face and neck!
Staying hydrated is absolutely essential for ensuring not only skin health, but overall well-being. Carry a bottle of water with you at all times to be absolutely certain there is no risk of becoming dehydrated.
