In theory, Coachella’s one of the best music festivals in America. But in practice, spending three straight days in what is basically the desert can have a few unintended consequences. Dry, scorched skin, greasy hair, and raccoon eyes are just a few of the Indio souvenirs. So to help you pay attention to the stuff that really matters this weekend and next—like figuring out a way to see both Girl Talk and Beirut even though their set times overlap—we’ve rounded-up the best new music festival-ready beauty products.
Keep tresses under control, even when there’s not a shower for miles, with Glo Essentials’ Re-Energize Dry Shampoo. The sulfate-, paraben-, and talc-free formula soaks up oil and keeps locks hydrated with a combination of rice starch, silk powder, and grape seed extract.
By day, slather on AmorePacific’s new Moisture Bound Tinted Moisturizer Treatment, which wards off dry skin while offering sheer, SPF 15 coverage.
By night, dab Neal’s Yard Remedies’ Beauty Sleep Concentrate to make it look like you’re getting more shut-eye than you actually are (the 90-percent organic lotion uses a mix of active ingredients and essential oils to optimize overnight cell regeneration).
And by the pool—or wherever you decide to spend your free time—try one of Apivita’s Express Beauty Masks. The travel-size packets from the Greek all-natural beauty brand are like an on-the-go visit to the spa (especially the Intensive Hydration Mask with Cucumber).
For quick touch-ups in between sets, tuck Ren’s new Tonic Moisture Mist in your bag. The all-natural, rose-scented facial spritz refreshes tired skin with the help of cooling fig extract, circulation-boosting Chinese ginseng, and hydrating hyaluronic acid.
And then when the Dr. Dre and Snoop Dog set is over and you’re ready to wipe off all of the sand, dirt, and grime that’s built up, pull out Neutrogena’s new Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. The patent-pending formula dissolves even the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras.
