Skincare & wellness tips for outdoor music festivals
Hey there, festival fanatics! We know you're counting down the days until you can dance your heart out under the sun and stars at your favorite outdoor music festivals like Coachella and Pitchfork. While the music and vibes are the main attraction, it's crucial to keep your skin and well-being in check so you can party like a pro. Check out our survival guide to ensure you look and feel fabulous while enjoying those festival beats.
1. Slather on that SPF
Sun's out, fun's out! But don't let those rays wreak havoc on your precious skin. Choose a sunscreen that offers long-lasting, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, like LaserAway Beauty BFF SPF Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Tinted Color Protector or LaserAway Beauty BFF SPF 30+ Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Face & Body. Be sure to apply sunscreen every two hours, especially after sweating or swimming, and you'll be the envy of every lobster-red reveler around you.
2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Water is your best friend, so keep it close. Stay hydrated by carrying a reusable water bottle with you and refilling it regularly. Bonus points for adding electrolyte tablets to your water for extra hydration and wellness, especially if you’re sweating a lot!
3. Protect those peepers
Funky sunglasses are not just a fashion statement—they're essential for protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. Be sure to pack a pair of shades with UV protection to keep your eyes happy and healthy.
4. Work a wide-brimmed hat
A fabulous wide-brimmed hat not only elevates your outfit but also shields your face and neck from the sun’s harmful rays that can lead to sunburns, skin cancer, and premature aging. That's what we call a win-win situation.
5. Go easy on the makeup
Keep your makeup light and minimal for a fresh, natural look. Why? Because wearing heavier foundations and powders can clog pores and lead to blemishes, especially if you’re sweating from all that dancing! Colorscience Natural Finish Mineral Foundation SPF 20 is your go-to product for breathable, lightweight coverage with added sun protection.
6. Pamper your pout
Your lips need love too! Swipe on Supergoop! Play Lip Balm SPF 30 with Acai to keep your lips soft and protected from the sun. Bonus tip: Reapply after sipping on your favorite festival beverage.
7. Prioritize sleep
Burning the candle at both ends might seem like the festival way, but it can leave you feeling less than fresh. Make sure you get enough sleep so you can party on without missing a beat. To help you sleep better in a tent, pack some earplugs and a sleep mask.
8. Exfoliate before and after the fest
Prep your skin before the festival with a gentle cleanser, like LaserAway Beauty Come Clean Purifying Face Wash, and follow up with LaserAway Beauty Polished Microdermabrasion Face & Body Scrub to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a glowing complexion. After the festivities, treat your skin to another round of cleansing and exfoliation to remove any lingering dirt, makeup, or sunscreen.
9. Go for healthy grub
Festivals can be a culinary wonderland, but do your body a favor and opt for healthier choices when you can, like salads, smoothies, and wraps. Your skin will thank you for it, and you'll have more energy to dance the night away.
10. Don’t forget post-festival skincare
After a weekend of fun in the sun, your skin deserves some TLC. Indulge in an ultra-hydrating face mask, like LaserAway Beauty Jetsetter Hydroserum Facial Mask, to replenish and rejuvenate your skin.
