If you’re lucky enough to have scored wristbands to Coachella this year, pat yourself on the back as you’ll soon be breathing in the same air as some of Hollywood’s finest. With only days left to make critical decisions around creative outfits and camping gear to pack, the common concern about hygiene creeps across your mind: “How on Earth am I going to take care of my skin and body in the middle of the desert?” Anticipating that there will be alcohol consumption and lack of sleep in the equation, you realize that waiting for you in Coachella Valley is the perfect formula for a skin catastrophe!

Anyone who has been to a music festival knows that it offers an experience like no other. With that said, you must be ready to battle extreme weather conditions, aggressive crowds and less than ideal bathroom situations. Though these factors are inevitable, personal hygiene does not have to be compromised if you’re simply prepared. Be sure to pack these essential items and follow this skin care regimen so you can have the time of your life, worry-free.

Start with a Deep Cleanse

With the desert comes heat and with heat comes sweat. Sweat will not only interact with the dirt and debris that is in the environment but also the makeup on your face, which will lead to clogged pores and high likelihood of breakouts. For this reason, you’ll want to give your face a good clean, preferably with a gentle cleanser and an exfoliating tool. Try Page Ashbury Jasmine & Neroli Facial Cleanser ($25) which contains all natural ingredients like soothing aloe vera and evening primrose extract, perfect for skin that’s been out in the sun.

Tip: Don’t bother bringing your Clarisonic to the middle of the desert. That already sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Try a konjac sponge ($19), which originally hails from Japan and has been deemed to be more economical and just as effective!

Nourish with a Light-Weight Moisturizer

Once your face is nice and clean, apply a light moisturizer to re-hydrate your skin. Try Page Ashbury Jasmine & Neroli Facial Moisturizer ($25) which is all natural and non-comedogenic (won’t clog your pores). It has a light, tantalizing scent of orange blossom and jasmine that isn’t too overpowering and provides a wonderful matte base for either liquid or powder foundation.

Tip: You can add a few drops of the line’s facial serum to give your face a gorgeous glow all day long!

Suncreen (Face)

This is a no-brainer. Use a sheer sunscreen over your moisturizer to protect yourself against the harsh UVA and UVB rays! Wrinkles, age spots, sun spots; not worth it! Try Sunology Natural Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50

Tip: Keep tabs on your SPF! Make sure you apply 30 minutes before going out in direct sunlight and then reapply every 2 hours. Try a spray version to keep re-application from ruining your makeup.

Sunscreen (Body)

This is equally as important. Follow the same guideline above and remember that reapplication is especially important when you’re at a festival because you’re outdoors and constantly sweating! Pick up Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50 ($38).

Deodorant

Just imagine, you’ll be hot and sweaty in a sea of tens of thousands of people. At some point, you’ll want to throw your hands up in the air and dance to Major Lazer, but just remember one thing: Wear deodorant! As bohemian as the whole music festival experience is, love thy neighbor and sport a scent that’ll be pleasant for all. You’re already doing all kinds of bad things to your body that weekend, so do one less and use an aluminum-free deodorant made with non-toxic ingredients. The essential oils in the natural varieties are actually more effective at keeping you fresh longer thanks to their antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Stay away from heavy fragrances and opt for more subtle, fresh scents like Page Ashbury Natural Deodorant in Lavender Bergamot ($15). It smells like a spring meadow and will keep B.O. at bay all day.

Thermal Water Spray

The scorching sun will be your archenemy. Keep your skin cool and fresh by misting it with thermal water, containing low levels of minerals and designed to soothe and comfort irritated and sensitive skin. Look into Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Water Spray ($16).

Personal Wipes

Please don’t forget, there is NO toilet paper in the porta potties (at Coachella). To keep yourself fresh, try the Dude Wipes Toilet Paper & Wipes Combo. They’ll help to keep you clean and you can use them to wipe down your face, hands, neck and more. It’s really the closest you’re going to get to an actual shower while dancing in the middle of the desert.
