Spring is here and the weather is starting to heat up! That means thousands are starting to attend music festivals around the world. This weekend is weekend 1 of the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California. As thousands are prepping to get ready for a weekend of music, art, and friends in Southern California's dry desert, we have chosen a few easy essentials that you sure don't want to miss out on in the desert heat! Remember to have fun and be safe!
Those who attend Coachella like to get the full experience and choose to camp on the camp grounds. That means it's 3 days in the blazing sun with Indio's infamous dust storms, which might not be the best for your skin. Headbands, sheer or billowy tops, funky dresses and skirts are pretty much the essentials for Coachella's dress code. However, we wanted to choose a few skincare and makeup essentials that will help you complete the look while also providing enough protection from the sun's damaging rays.
Holika Holika 99% Aloe Soothing Gel is a total life-saver for me. Living in Southern California, I love being in the sun year-round. This aloe soothing gel boasts 99% aloe! It helps create healthy, hydrated skin, and also soothes and repairs the skin after being in the sun for too long. Enriched with vitamin C, this soothing gel gives your skin a healthier and brighter skin tone and helps to sooth the skin from any damage. My friends always flock to me when I pull this out whenever we have any outdoor outings. Comes in a 250ml bottle which is also plenty to share! Aloe is the perfect companion when you know you're going to be exposed in the sun for an extended period of time. Pro Tip: I like to throw this in a cooler or fridge to give a cooling effect when applying it.
