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.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
