Summer Festival Survival kit

Late nights and communal facilities doesn’t allow the ideal situation for spending lots of time getting ready, and it doesn’t accommodate for your entire bathroom to be bought along.

So what are the bare minimums you require when going away camping this summer?

I’ve compiled a list of some basic time saving and convenient products which will accommodate all your beauty needs while you’re camping out this summer.

Facial cleansing wipes: Probably the most important and a definite beauty saviour made for beauty emergencies and travelling. Many on the market will remove makeup, cleanse, refresh and tone the skin all in one simple wipe.

Toning mist: Again, no need to traipse out in the dark to the bathrooms! Toning mist is perfect to hydrate, revitalize, soothe and balance the pH of the skin, literally relaxing and toning the pores preparing them to more effectively receive the benefits of the moisturiser.

Tinted SPF Moisturiser: Killing two birds with one stone, a tinted moisturiser means there is no need to pack a foundation, which would look too overdone for the camp site. You can relax knowing that you have applied your SPF on your face for the day.

Sunscreen: With the summer sun and being outdoors all day, we have all heard many times before that this stuff needs to be your best friend. Look for the words “broad spectrum” on the label so you know you are covered from both UVA and UVB rays. Apply it every few hours and straight after swimming.

Mouthwash: Perfect for when there’s a morning queue to the basin and you want to get rid of the furry feeling as soon as possible.

Chap Stick: Look for one that includes sun protection as well as sheer butter and vitamin E to prevent nasty cracking and dry, sunburnt lips.

Dry Shampoo Spray: This is the ultimate time saver. It absorbs excess oil and product build up without weighing hair down and without stripping precious oils from the scalp, no water or blow-dryer is needed.

Concealer: You only need to use a little bit, otherwise it will look unnatural in the sunlight. Before heading out into the sun dot a small amount onto the area you are trying to cover and blend until it becomes one with your skin.
