The Coachella countdown has started. If you are ready for the road trip to Indio but are overwhelmed on what to pack, we can help with that. Spending an epic weekend listening to music in the desert sun might be heaven for your ears but it can be a nightmare for your skin, so don't forget these festival must-haves!
So, how do you prepare for what’s to come? For starters, start drinking lots of water. It is so important to stay hydrated throughout the weekend in the desert.
Don't forget your wide-brim hat and a pair of sunglasses. Both accessories are not only super fashionable but also protect you from the sun.
As for beauty, grab travel-friendly versions of these essential skin savers and use them religiously!
SPF Lip Balm
The sun has the power to dry out your lips, and the results aren't so pretty. To avoid dry, cracked lips make sure to always use a lip balm that contains an SPF.
Moisturizer with SPF
This one is a no-brainer. Protect your skin from sun damage with an SPF of at least 30. Also, make sure to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours to stay protected the entire day. Harmful UV rays can not only burn your skin but can contribute to advanced aging and melanoma in the future.
All that dancing in the desert is fabulous, but it will make you swear. Sweat mixed with makeup and impurities can clog your pores and induce a shudder-worthy breakout. Avoid this (and stay refreshed) by using a facial mist with ingredients like rosewater and salicylic acid.
Moisture is key, especially in that dry, desert heat. Use a few drops of a pure beauty oil to nourish, heal and soothe stressed out skin. Bonus: It will leave you with a radiant glow!
