Don't Sacrifice Your Face During Festival Season!

Spring has been showing signs of life here in NYC. But I know my friends on the west coast are already in full-on summer music festival mode as they head to Coachella this weekend. Here are some quick tips to save face during a long festival weekend.

Sunscreen with UVA & UVB defense is critical during long days in the desert sun. Mix it in with your everyday moisturizer for double duty hydration and protection for sun-soaked, thirsty skin. Wear it under tinted moisturizer for beautiful, polished skin. (Try Dermalogica's Solar Defense Booster SPF50)

Facial cleansing cloths are essential. Perspiration and dirt are bound to build up on your pretty face all day, and it's no secret that a luxurious shower may not be in the cards during a weekend of music and fun in the sun. Be sure to at least tend to your skin with a face wipe before you hit the hay (or grass/tent/camper/etc) each night. (Try Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes)

Wearing makeup to a music festival can be as polarizing as wearing a full face of makeup to the gym. It's going to be hot. You're going to sweat. Why bother? Well, festival fashion has become an every-day trend. So it's not crazy to think makeup should still be involved. I recommend keeping it to the bare minimum. Waterproof mascara is sure to stay put, brightening your eyes while still not trying too hard. And a good lip color can take you through the weekend, looking chic and effortless.
