Thankfully, there are plenty of products which will keep your complexion looking flawless! Discover our top picks for the ultimate festival skincare routine here…

The Ultimate Festival Skincare Routine

All-In-One Prep

These little miracle pads will be one of the most important steps in your festival skincare routine, guaranteed. One side works to massage, exfoliate and tone the skin, whilst the other works as a serum, moisturiser, leave-in mask and primer. By using on the skin for 7 second seconds on each side, it’ll leave your skin bright and radiant instantly! From there, you can apply your makeup and enjoy your healthy, flawless skin!

Flawless Base

When you’re at a festival, you don’t want to be wearing a thick, heavy layer of foundation. If you still want some coverage, theBalm BalmShelter Tinted Moisturiser is the ultimate choice! Containing SPF18, it’ll protect your skin from the sun whilst hydrating and evening out skin tone. Completely weightless, your pores can breathe and you’ll feel like you’re not wearing any makeup!

Perfect Pout

Nothing ruins a cute makeup look like dry, chapped lips. The Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm will nourish and hydrate your pout for super-soft, kissable lips! Complete with SPF20, it will stop your delicate lips from getting sunburn and give them a gorgeous sheen! The non-greasy formula will have you wanting to top it up again and again to give you that fresh balm feel.

Sun Protection

Even if the sun isn’t shining at the festival, the UV rays can still damage your skin. Making sure to apply an SPF on your body will block the sun’s rays, keeping your skin silky smooth and protected. Our favourite is the NUXE spray as its super-quick to apply and has a fresh, summery fragrance too! If that’s not enough, it even activates the appearance of a natural tan and is water-resistant, we can’t live without it!

Freshen Up

After a long day of partying, you’re definitely going to be feeling less than fresh. The Yes To Grapefruit Rejuvenating Facial Wipes will cleanse your skin for a brighter complexion. If you’re not able to nab one of the showers, these are also great for wiping on your body to remove mud and grime. This handy packet contains 25 wipes, enough to get you through even the muddiest of festivals!
