Festival season is nearly upon us, so what better time to start discussing summer skincare?
As many of you know, I'm super excited to be seeing my favourite country-singer-turned-pop-star Taylor Swift (for the second time, may I add!) as she headlines BST Hyde Park in London this June as part of her exciting 1989 World Tour. It will be my first 'festival' style concert so I'm definitely looking forward to lounging around in the sun and getting to see a whole range of artists perform, instead of just one.
While it will be great to relax and have a bit of a dance party, it's still super important to make sure your skin is looked after - which is essentially why this post was written! I've put together a few of my personal tips to ensure your face is kept flawlessly fresh whatever festival you're attending this summer...
Go light on the make-up
Make-up isn't part of my daily routine anyway, but I certainly wouldn't recommend layering it on for a festival. Heavy products + heat + sweat = a pretty gross combination! I'd stick to a bit of lippie and have a bit of fun with things like glitter rather than slapping on the foundation.
Drink lots and lots of water. Not only will it save you from getting dehydrated and worn out but it'll also do wonders to cleanse your skin and flush toxins away.
Do I even need to explain this one? Just do it - trust me. Your skin will thank you later!
Get yourself a mini survival kit
