Your natural beauty festival checklist

19/05/2020 — By Hannah Mepham

Coachella has kicked off festival season and there’s a packed schedule of summer festival dates to look forward to. Thinking of what to pack? To help your skin care regime adapt to life in a tent we’ve prepared the ultimate festival skin care checklist.

WHAT TO PACK:

SPF SUN CREAM

Even if your festival is more of a mud bath than a sun trap, UV light can still seep through the clouds and harm the skin. Whatever your festival weather forecast is, keep your skin safe by packing Green People’s SPF 15 Sun Lotion. Available in travel sized 30ml tubes, it’s formulated with tan accelerator to help you top up your tan whilst you enjoy the music.

LONG-LASTING DEODORANT

Planning on giving the queues for the festival showers a miss? For skin that stays fest-fresh as you jostle your way through the crowds, you’ll want to apply a roll-on deodorant with long-lasting antibacterial action. Packed-full of prebiotics and herbal extracts, Green People’s cruelty free Oy! Deodorant is free from pore-clogging aluminium, suitable for vegans and keeps body odour at bay for up to 24 hours.

SKINCARE

Tight on space in the tent? Save space by packing a multi-tasking moisturiser. Green People’s Day Solution Moisturiser not only keeps the skin feeling fresh, hydrated and healthy, it also helps to unblock the pores, balance sebum production and delivers powerful plant action against acne.

WATER-FREE CLEANSER

As tempting as it can be to sleep in your face paint, after a day of dancing up a sweat your skin will reap the rewards of a deep clean. To keep blemishes at bay wave goodbye to sebum-spreading wet wipes and swap them for GreenPeople’s leave on Foaming Face Wash. Simply pump this gentle foam onto your hands and massage it into your face and neck. There’s no need to rinse, as the powerful natural actives work best when left on the skin overnight

CONCEALER

The combination of alcohol, junk food and late nights can leave our skin battling blemishes but Green People’s Oy! Blemish Concealer can keep your skin out of bother. Made with Green Tea, Tea Tree, and Omegas 3 & 6, this mineral make-up multitasker hides your blemishes whilst actively working to clear your complexion.

COOLING FACE MIST

Keep your cool in the crowds by spritzing Green People’s Hydrating Toning Mist over the face and body. Not only will it help stop your face paint from sliding off your face but it will also keep your skin feeling fresh, cool and clean.

HAY FEVER HEROES

Hay fever and festivals fields arent a great combination but you shouldn’t let puffy eyes spoil your fun. Soothe sore eyes by switching your eye cream to a scent free formula. Green People’s Neutral Scent Free Eye Cream is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and because it’s ultra-gentle it’s suitable for even very sensitive eyes.

WHAT NOT TO PACK:

HAIR CARE

Whilst the thought of having dirty or greasy hair make might make you feel uncomfortable, you’ll hopefully be having too much fun to worry about your roots. Instead pop on a stylish sun hat or floral headband and give your hair a thorough rinse with a clarifying shampoo once you get home.

GLITTER

Glitter might add a touch of sparkle to festivities but environmental scientists have raised concerns that glitter used in cosmetics is made from plastic particles. A potential pollutant, if these particles go down the plug hole, they can be consumed by marine life and end up in the human food chain. Campaigners are calling on its use in cosmetics to be reviewed and 60 UK festivals have recently taken the decision to remove glitter from their campgrounds by 2021. For an eco-friendly way to show-off your sparkle consider using biodegradable alternatives such as natural face paints or glitter made from cellulose film.

WET WIPES

Once a festival staple, concerns are growing that wet wipes could be harming our skin. Often made of alcohol and emulsifiers and it’s thought they can dry out the skin, stretch and enlarge pores and even cause blood vessels on the skin to break[i].
