Festival Face Treatment 101
Pumping music, flower crowns, glamped-out tents and crowds of groupies—it can only mean one thing: It’s festival season. And, surviving it is an art form unto itself—especially for your skin. How’s festival-loving skin to cope? When you’ve got tickets to the hottest (quite literally) festivals around—Coachella, Burning Man, SXSW and then some—protecting your face with the right skin care products is key.
Hydrate, hydrate and hydrate.
You’re looking good. You’ve got that whole bohemian street-style vibe going on. But, keep in mind: The most fashionable festival accessory is a bottle of water. Your skin can’t get enough of the clear stuff. Water rids the skin of toxins and gives it the moisture and nutrients it needs from the inside out.
Save your skin from the sun.
The music beats on and on—and so does the sun on your face. Here’s where shade from a large-brim hat or trendy parasol works wonders. Not only will it be the perfect finishing touch to your ensemble, it will also help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. And, of course, sunscreen is always a no brainer. Generously apply (and reapply throughout the day) a sunscreen with an SPF 30+.
Minimize the makeup.
Festivals are often super hot, sticky, crowded, and sometimes sandy and dusty. So, make things easier on yourself and your face and go light on the makeup!
Refresh skin in an instant.
On a hot day, what is the perfect skin refresher to carry in a fabulous fringe crossbody bag? A little hydrating face mist, of course! With all the pollution and dirt in the festival air, it’s just what your face needs between music sets. SK-II Mid-Day Essence Spray is the ideal face pick-me-up to lock in hydration that the arid climate will try strip out. A simple spritz is all it takes for a quick face treatment and moisture boost. It’s our signature essence in spray form, packed with Pitera™, a special ingredient shown to dramatically improve the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. This essence spray also has a MoistureLock Complex to penetrate through any makeup you may be wearing, without ruining it, so you can have skin that looks youthful and feels as vibrant as you do—all festival long.
Post-fest, treat your skin right.
After the last set has been played and the last photo Instagrammed, your face is begging for a good wash with a gentle facial cleanser. Give skin some love with the SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser. It’s a creamy, feel-good makeup remover that effectively clears impurities (such as any grime you might have picked up outside throughout the day) while hydrating your skin, leaving it feeling fresh and smooth.
And, to really pamper skin after festival fever, mask yourself. SK-II Facial Treatment Mask is the ultimate hydrating face mask and skin brightening product. It’s formulated with a concentrated dose of Pitera™ to moisturize, reduce the look of dark spots, and brighten skin. You’ll have your glow back in just 10 minutes.
Follow a few of these tips and your face will be ready for whatever the next festival throws your way.
