DermalSense Survival Guides: Festivals

Festivals in the UK are great fun. They offer a chance to spend time in the baking sun with the people you admire and the people you came with in the first place, not to mention the opportunity to wear your favourite summer clothes, a collection of flowery headbands and make the most of all the band merchandise on offer. With all this going on the only downfall of festivals, aside from the potential of muddy rainfalls and your tent floating away in a river of sludge, is the hygiene side of things.

Now, it’s not like anyone in the crowd minds if you’re a bit smelly one day or if your hair just happens to look like a lion’s mane as more often than not, they’ll be too involved with the music to care. However, feeling like you look a state can drag you down quite a bit. This is especially so if you want to at least try to look your best, even if you are at a festival. Maintaining adequate hygiene at a festival is more than possible, if you have the right tools to do so; wet wipes, dry shampoo and anti-bacterial gel all become your best friend.

Let’s take a look at Dermalsense’s survival guide to festivals.

PreCleanse Wipes

After a long day listening to heavy metal or getting stuck in the middle of indie fandom, you just want to relax in your sleeping bag and get some sleep so you’re raring for the day ahead tomorrow. However, you’ve just caught a glance of yourself in the mirror; your mascara has left you with raccoon eyes and your lipstick has smudged up to your nostrils. You’re in desperate need of some wipes to remove the remains which is why Dermalogica’s PreCleanse wipes are ideal for nights away from your home comforts.

Suitable for all skin conditions, these wipes are infused with the necessary ingredients to literally melt away even the heaviest layers of waterproof mascara and make-up, while effectively cleansing the skin and leaving you with a radiant glow. The wipes also boast a combination of calming essential acids which help to deeply nourish and smooth the skin while gently removing surplus oils from the surface.

Solar Defence Booster SPF-50

The skin, particularly in the summer, requires an adequate level of moisture to be left looking and feeling fantastic which is why Dermalogica’s Solar Defence Booster is a suitable candidate for this necessity. The Solar Defence Booster can be used alongside your chosen foundation or moisturiser to enhance the skin’s defence against harmful UV rays as well as ensure optimal smoothness. It also works as a shield against skin-ageing free radicals but avoids leaving behind a chalky residue. With Oleosome technology, this product delivers sufficient moisturisation while working to boost the effects of SPF.

UltraCalming Mist

Designed primarily for sensitised skin, Dermalogica’s UltraCalming Mist helps to soothe and calm signs of redness and aggravation while relieving discomfort. The product is available in an easy-to-apply spray making it ideal for travel and for events such as festivals. The formula works to provide adequate conditioning while preparing the skin for sufficient moisture absorption, so it is perfect for use alongside other Dermalogica moisturisers. With antiseptic and disinfectant capabilities, this mist is ideal for those who want relief and treatment for their reactive skin type.

Multi-Active Toner

Like the above, the Multi-Active Toner is available in spray form so it is perfect for away-from-home events. This particular formula is designed to provide users with a refreshing and hydrating spritz that works to smooth the skin’s surface while ensuring sufficient conditioning to leave you with silky soft skin. It can also be applied throughout the day to maintain adequate hydration levels.

These are just a few of the products we would recommend for use during events like festivals. Not only are they easy-to-use and transport-friendly, they are also efficient and effective in their benefits which makes them ideal for those days when you’re feeling a little under the weather.
