Festival skincare tips 

Festival season! All the promise of sunny skies, glittery eyes, dancing, and frolicking in a field with your favourite bands. Skincare can get a little out of whack when bathroom space is a negative and you’re sleeping in a tent. Start out prepared with our festival skincare tips - they’re guaranteed to grant even the most sensitive skin a good time!

While you’re soaking up those good vibes in the countryside, don’t forget to care for the nature you’re in! At Simple we’re always trying to reduce our negative impact on the planet, which is why we developed our new Skin to Skin Biodegradable Cleansing Wipes. Made from sustainably-sourced wood pulp and plant fibres, they’ll still clean off your festival make-up while being kinder to the planet.

Good clean fun

No water on tap to wash your face? No problem. Kind to Skin Micellar cleansing water works double-duty to keep skin fresh, making it one of the best festival essentials. Not only does it help remove all trace of the great outdoors (and glitter eye make-up), it will also help instantly hydrate and revive skin too – no bathroom needed!

On-the-go festival face wipes

Festival face wipes, for the easiest possible skincare, should be top of the list of festival essentials. Our Simple Kind to Skin Biodegradable Cleansing Wipes are your best friend when it comes to festival skincare. A pack (or three!) in your backpack will always be put to good use. In compost conditions, they biodegrade faster than grapefruit peels and onions – so you know you’re being kind to the planet while being kind to your skin. They’re perfect for freshening up tired skin, wiping away traces of the day, and for touching up make-up on-the-move.

Take cover

It’s easy to forget about the harmful effects of UVA and UVB when there’s dancing to be done, but keep protected against sun damage with a slick of suncream. For added protection, pick a daily moisturiser with added SPF so that you're protected from the get-go, and stash some extra sunscreen in your bag for reapplying on-the-go, as you dance the day away.

Size matters (at least for festival toiletries)

Less is more! Why not pack mini festival toiletries or decant your products to save on space for more festival essentials? Too much to carry is plan Z. Another tip for keeping down the weight is to not pack brand new products. Half a bottle of your favourite cleanser or your well-loved moisturiser still goes a long way and weighs half as much!

Refresh at home

Skincare out the tent window by day four? We hear you! A quick fix to pep up post-festival skin is to pop on a sheet mask. It will pep up tired, dehydrated skin in a flash. Our choice? Simple Water Boost Hydrating Sheet Mask helps beat the signs of dehydrated skin. Why not store yours in the fridge for an extra-cooling welcome home treat?

Wherever you find yourself this summer, our festival skincare tips will have you sorted, from the opening act, to flicking back over the Insta highlights from the sofa, once the dancing is done.
