10 Skincare Essentials to Finish Festival Season Strong

Summer may be coming to an end, but music festival season is going strong. While your mind might be on snagging tickets or putting together that perfect ‘fit, you can’t overlook your skincare. As temps hit new highs, your skin will thank you for packing these essentials, whether you’re a day tripper or an all-out festival camper.

Since it’s not practical to drag your whole 10-step routine to a festival with you, try out a pared-back version with a few easy staples that you can throw in your overnight bag for your stay on the festival grounds. Keeping travel-sized, multi-purpose products in your kit can help you pack as light as possible.
