Sun, drinks, nights dancing and long queues at the washrooms – skin care is rarely optimal at festivals. Of course you will not miss the fun. And of course you still want to shine afterwards. With these 4 tips you protect your skin from harm. So the party can go on!
4 absolute must-do’s for festival beauties
Summer is always festival season. And let’s be honest, if you’re a party mum, then Skin Care will be Prio 2 at most. Pretty much all day, your skin is exposed to the elements at festivals. And with such a celebration marathon everything is possible, from blazing sun over wind to pouring rain. For your skin no picnic.
But I’m the last one to spoil your party pass. Maybe we’ll even find each other next to each other on the dance floor again … With a few tricks suitable for the festival, however, skin stress can be minimized.
1. Kiss only with lip care
A protective lipstick or balm is essential. It’s hot, you lose a lot of fluid and then the kissing with the whiskered beard carrier last night. The lips are already burning like a sandstorm in the Sahara. And once they are brittle, they need a lot of attention to look after them gently. Lip balm is therefore part of every festival bag.
Best with natural fats or soft-melting wax and, of course, SPF. Because, yes, we find red lips good, but not when they are burned by the sun. Apply generously and diligently after creaming. Unfortunately, we have not developed any lip care from FIVE yet. That’s why I’ll tell you my current favorite: the lip care of Annemarie Börlind with SPF 20. This care was also rated by Öko-Test with very good.
Griff to water
A beer here, a little wine there – for most this is part of the festival fun. But too much and the next day is just half as funny. In addition to the hangover, this also has an unpleasant effect on the skin. The breakdown of alcohol produces many free radicals that attack healthy cells. This leads to oxidative stress. It can even be measured on the skin surface. Strong alcohol consumption thus accelerates skin aging.
In addition, alcohol deprives the body of fluid. The skin dries faster. That’s what makes water so important. A very personal tip: Drink at least one alcohol after every alcoholic drink. This is how you counteract fluid deprivation and at the same time slow down the consumption of alcohol.
Incidentally, coconut water is a really good choice. Its isotonic effect replenishes the mineral balance. At the same time it brings with it many antioxidants that reduce the already mentioned cell damage. And, of course, delicious refreshing does it too.
3. Be massaged with the sunscreen
With the sunscreen, you can not overdo it at the festival. You spend the nice day outdoors and shade is usually sparsely sown. So choose a high sun protection factor (SPF). The number indicates by what factor the sunscreen prolongs the self-protection time of your skin. And here you need long protection!
Apply the cream in the morning, preferably in the shade. Let them move in, before you venture into the sun. And cream regularly throughout the day. By the way, did you know that re-creaming does not extend the protection period? The maximum sun duration is limited by the LSF. Repeated application ensures that you remain protected during this time.
Also remember that the sun hits you at a concert from a different angle than for example at the pool. She falls down almost vertically on you. In some places special care is needed. For example, when you take a backpack, the wearers rub the cream off the shoulders. Even the nose turns red faster. And what many forget completely lucid: the parting.
By the way, extra protection provides a good dose of glitter over the sunscreen. So, let it sparkle! But definitely with biodegradable glitter, because we do not want to burden nature with microplastics.
4. Make-up removal is King
Make up! Every time. Even if you only have a short ear. The queue in front of the washhouse is long? Do it anyway! On the festival area it is usually extremely dusty. Just when you have freshly creamed sunscreen, the grains stick to you. Since the cotton pad is sometimes really black after cleaning.
While you recover from dancing and celebrating, your skin is wide awake. The regeneration is running at full speed. At least keep her back for a few hours – or better, her pores – free. She will thank you with a fresh look the next day.
?? With the FIVE make-up remover you can also clean without any water if necessary. The oil formula is super gentle to your skin and removes dirt and make-up thoroughly. In addition, you can leave our make-up remover as a care oil on the skin overnight.
