As I like to wear minimal makeup as much as possible at a Festival it meant that having a good skincare routine whilst there is still important for me. I don’t mean going all out and taking toners ect but one good cleanser, a moisturiser and an eye gel were my essentials. Therefore it meant I could tackle any breakouts and dark circles and try and keep to wearing less makeup and more glitter! My favourite item I took was this Peachy Fox London Collagen gel as it really works wonders for my under eyes, allowing me to look a little more fresh faced in the morning (you can read more about it here).
At a festival I like to get my legs out no matter the weather – wind, rain…snow. Okay maybe not snow. Not because I want to show off my pins or anything but simply because I find I get SO HOT at festivals. Even if it’s pouring with rain because your either trekking a mile across a field to get to the next stage or else dancing around like a loon you end up finding yourself sweating buckets. So I counteract this by wearing layers on my top half and then allowing my legs to be out in the cool air to balance it out. Weird logic maybe, but it works for me. It means however that I want to keep my legs looking smoooooooth. So my Dorco eve razors are another essential for me as the movable razor head makes it so easy to use when you’re somewhere that’s not the comfort of your own shower.
Last up for me is a good effective deodorant. This really is a must. With queues to showers often being about an hour long most days, sometimes you end up going days without showering and just having a Mexican spray down instead (Deodorant and dry shampoo yourself so heavily that your left in a cloud of fumes). An absolute favourite brand of mine for years has been Dove and it’s sweet fresh smelling scents. As previously mentioned in my blog before, I do a lot of physical exercise and tend to need a good long wearing deodorant and for me, Dove is the one. It leaves me feeling fresh all day without having to worry about body odours and this is exactly what you’re after for a Festival too. Plus the new formula means it’s extra nourishing for your skin too.
