Festival season is upon us, meaning it’s time to get those tents ready, bring out the face glitter, slip into some wellies and avoid the bathrooms for 3 days. Getting to see some of your favourite artists with your friends on a weekend away is an essential part of the Summer, but alongside the glitter, drinks and wellies, are you packing the essentials required for a revitalising and refreshing festival?
We all know it, it’s unlikely you’re going to be showering or relaxing in a bath whilst you’re dancing away all weekend, but we don’t judge, we’ve done it too, and we’ve gone through plenty of dry shampoos trying to keep our hair as clean as possible. But what do we do about that morning grogginess after we’ve been dancing all day and we’re looking a little worse for wear waking up in our pop up tent the next morning. It’s always handy to have a pack or two of refreshing wipes that not only wake you up and keep you looking bright eyed and bushy tailed for the day ahead, but also help to detoxify the skin, cleaning up any impurities that have built up over the days. Our Wake Up Wipes are a great alternative if you don’t fancy braving the ice cold showers. They are easy to store away and can even fit in your bag when you’re out and about in the crowds, making them an essential for any festival goer.
But what do they actually do?
Well, our Wake Up Wipes contain powerful deep penetrating caffeine and cucumber extracts which help to wake up the skin and reduce the feeling of tiredness. Aiding in eliminating dark circles underneath the eyes and reducing puffiness and blotchy skin, the wipes are an all-round essential for keeping on top of your skins hygiene and quality.
Looking after your skin is so important during a festival, but don’t just focus on your face and arms. Out of everywhere on your body, your feet will be subject to the most damage. All the dancing, walking and jumping around can result in blisters that can be an absolute nightmare, especially if you end up getting one at the start of the weekend. That’s why making sure you’ve packed blister plasters as part of your essentials kit is crucial if you’re going to have a pain free weekend. Wellies aren’t exactly the comfiest footwear in the world, but they are a festival must have and seemingly it seems wrong to not be wearing a pair.
Trying to get to sleep in the night-time at a festival is one of the biggest challenges you’re going to face. Sure, you’ll be ready for bed after a day of dancing and enjoying the entertainment on offer, but don’t forget, not everyone is going to want to sleep when you do! An eye mask can be the perfect solution to getting a bit of sleep ahead of the next day. Block out the flashing lights, tuck yourself away and get a relatively peaceful night’s sleep and use those wake up wipes in the morning!
