Let’s talk about festivals shall we? Unless you are living under a rock, you know that a big part of summer is festivals! They are going on all summer, in many cities, and feature everything from the giant headliners at Osheaga and Coachella, to awesome local talent at smaller shows. I’ve got a list of some amazing products to get you through festival season feeling clean, refreshed and protected.
If you have feet and wear shoes, you need to get yourself some Polysporin Blister Pads because they are lifesavers. I’m prone to blisters and hot spots on my feet, mostly because of my aversion to socks, and keep a little pack of these babies in my purse. But sometimes those new sandals or sneakers rub us the wrong way – literally. They take up no space in your bag but will be the biggest lifesaver if a blister or hot spot flares up while you dance on the grass.
Then, I was shopping for my daughter’s summer away as a counsellor at camp and I grabbed a Benadryl Itch Stick for any bug emergencies that might occur. Most music festivals take place in grassy park areas with trees, therefore there will be bugs! Be prepared! Toss the stick in your purse for instant itch relief!
And while you are getting gorgeous before heading out, don’t forget sunscreen! A gentle waterproof formula is a great idea, especially if you are looking at a long day. Aveeno Protect + Hydrate SPF30 lotion is moisturizes skin while it protects it from sunburn. It’s waterproof too. Slather this on exposed skin! I also adore the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF15 – it protects your skin, while adding a gorgeous natural glow with light diffusing ingredients. Less makeup is definitely more outside in the summer.
There will be lots of delicious food and drinks on the menu while you dance the day and night away. Toss some Listerine Pocket Paks in your bag just in case you meet that special someone. Festivals are loud, so you have to get close to be heard and don’t want to exhale your tacos and poutine on that hottie you’re chatting up. The cinnamon ones are my favourites because they make me think of red candy hearts, which I love.
Rather than piling on more powder as the day goes on, toss some CLEAN & CLEAR Oil Absorbing Sheets into your bag. Seriously, these blotting papers are amazing and have been staples with my daughters and myself since they were first launched. They remove oil without adding anything, and oily pores are no match for these miraculous sheets. Thinking ahead: you will probably be exhausted when you get home. My tired girl routine involves keeping makeup remover wipes in my bedside table drawer so I can lie in bed while I wash my face. I LOVE the CLEAN & CLEAR Night Relaxing All In One wipes, they get every last drop of makeup and their soft gentle scent is soothing at bedtime. You could even toss them in your bag in case you need to refresh during the day. I use makeup wipes on my hands, on the back of my neck if I’m hot and even in my pits. Seriously – if they can take off makeup they can handle a little sweat!
