Don't forget natural beauty products at festivals this summer
Summer may be drawing to a close, but there are still some festivals going on over the next couple of weeks.
While they are lots of fun, they can take their toll on your body, so it is important to ensure you have a natural beauty products survival kit to keep your hair and skin in tip top condition.
The showers at festivals may not look that tempting but it is important that you don't forget to wash during all the music and celebrations.
The Bringer of Peace Herbal Body Wash for Sensitive Skin is a must-have, as it will calm you down after all that jumping and dancing around, while soothing the skin and ensuring you smell great.
However, the Bergamot, Neroli and Ylang Ylang will help uplift the body and ready you for more festival fun.
Look after skin
Sun exposure and lots of grass can be a nightmare combination, so it is essential that you have things on hand to address any problems as they happen.
In addition to an effective UV protection, be sure to bring a good moisturiser and ointment to help stop dry skin and sooth any inflammation from allergic reactions or bites.
Chickweed and Chamomile Ointment is an effective way to sort out itchy and dry skin. Chickweed purifies the body, removing toxins, while chamomile is an anti-inflammatory.
This combination is often used to treat eczema, but if your skin is taking a bit of a battering it's always good to have the ointment on hand.
Keep hair looking healthy
The sun and outdoor air can also have a negative effect on hair, drying it out. Total Repair Herbal Shampoo will ensure hair stays nourished and looking great while you're at a festival.
It contains Calendula, which has soothing and healing properties, while Frankincense and Neroli will tonify and rejuvenate. What's more, Sandlewood and Advocado oil will stop hair looking flat and tired.
However, it always pays to have a few tricks up your sleeve in case you don't get chance to wash your hair as regularly as you'd like.
Alison Dace, creative director at Saks hairdressers, recommends having a bobble and headscarf in your backpack.
