A skincare routine probably isn't at the forefront of your mind when it comes to festivals, but it really should be! You're outside, in a muddy field, under the sun for hours at a time and probably a little bit sweaty too. Your skin is susceptible to all kinds of grime and damage. Music festivals may be fun but they're a recipe for disaster for your skin. But since we know packing all your skincare products isn't feasible, we've rounded up some festival skincare essentials. We've stripped it back to basics, and each product has been carefully selected as travel-friendly and easy to use. Festival Skincare Essentials

Makeup Removal

Do not, we repeat, do not succumb to using makeup wipes. If there's just one thing you take away from this article, please let it be this. Makeup wipes are terrible for the skin. They don't effectively cleanse the skin and they can cause irritation and long-term skin damage. So, what should you use instead? We recommend the glo-therapeutics Gentle Eye Makeup Remover and the glo-therapeutics Daily Polishing Cleanser. The glo-therapeutics Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is a clinically tested, non-oily formula that is ideal for all skin types including the most sensitive skin. This is a non-irritating eye makeup remover for the delicate eye area that includes anti-inflammatory and hydrating actives to leave skin soothed, hydrated and clean. Follow your eye makeup remover with the Daily Polishing Cleanser. A festival skincare essential due to its unique powder formulation that can turn into a multi-benefit cleanser and exfoliator with just a bit of water, making it totally travel-friendly! With a formulation consisting of Jojoba Beads, Salicylic Acid and a lightening agent made up of natural amino acids, this combination skin cleanser can gently exfoliate the skin whilst cleansing away grime and oil to leave skin radiant and revitalised.

Unclog The Skin

Prevent skin congestion and clogged pores with glo-therapeutics Clear Complexion Pads. Formulated with 5% Salicylic Acid to penetrate and exfoliate acne skin and refine its texture. These pads gently break down excess sebum, immediately toning and balancing oily skin and helping prevent the growth of acne-causing bacteria. Plus being a stack of 50 pre-soaked pads means it's totally travel-friendly and easy to use. Perfect for festivals!

SPF Protection

A key element of music festivals is that you're outside for long periods of time. So what does this mean in regards to festival skincare? Sunscreen, of course! Even if it's overcast, 80% of harmful UV rays can still penetrate clouds and damage your skin. So an SPF is always necessary. Whether you want a makeup primer and SPF combined, a tinted moisturiser with SPF, an oil free moisturiser with SPF for oily skin or a high SPF 50 sunscreen designed for sensitive skin, we've got the sun protection for you.
