Music and mud are the name of the game when it comes to the music festival season. Unfortunately this fun combo can wreak havoc on our skin, with excess dirt and oil leading to a multitude of unsightly problems. Take control of your festival face this year with some handy on-the-go beauty products from The Body Shop.
Wet wipes are a girl’s best beauty weapon during a weekend mudbath. The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Gentle Cleansing Wipes are a super-fast way to remove dirt and make-up from both the body and face. They’re also a complete beauty regime packed into one convenient wipe, with cleansing, toning and moisturising elements to instantly pep-up your skin. Best of all, these cleansing wipes are biodegradable to help you enjoy a greener festival experience. Tuck a few packs into your tent to make sure you’re ready for whatever the weekend brings.
If you’re planning to dance the night away, invest in a good natural toner. Hot and sweaty conditions can lead to excess oil and visible pores, which create an unattractive shiny finish. Prime your skin for the festival experience with the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser, which glides over your face to create a matte finish.
Don’t mistake sweat and oil for moisture. It’s essential to keep your skin well hydrated with a good moisturiser during long days of sunshine or rain. The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream blends skincare and make-up to create a quick and flawless finish that’s perfectly matched to your individual skintone. Banish any blemishes with a Tea Tree Concealer, which will combat spots without drying the skin.
Make sure your eyes sparkle when the oversized shades come off. Avoid using heavy moisturiser on the delicate skin around your eyes; instead use a lightweight eye gel, such as the Elderflower Cooling Eye Gel, to give this area a much-needed boost of hydration. The natural elderflower ingredient is great for reducing puffiness and bags after a late night of partying. Complete a fresh look with a quick application of Lightening Touch Concealer, which includes an integrated brush to mask undereye circles in seconds.
Looking for love this summer? Then make sure you avoid the festival beauty sin of chapped and flaky lips. The Body Shop’s Lipscuff is a quick lip exfoliator that blasts away dry skin, leaving you with a smoother smile. Then pucker up with a slick of Lip and Cheek Stain for just a hint of natural-looking colour to keep you looking fresh-faced in the fields.
