Feminine Hygiene and Festival Essentials

Festival season may be winding down but we still have a fair few goodens’ to go, and if you’re heading out to the festival fields within the next few months, you’re probably thinking about hygiene. From keeping your underarm hair at bay to fighting off greasy roots and bad skin breakouts, the best way to keep your feminine hygiene tip top is to make sure you’re taking along all of your festival essentials.

Top of the
list is the Wilkinson Sword Quattro in Raspberry Rain. Whether you’re worried
about keeping your legs fuzz free (hairy knees, right?!) or your armpits safe
from stragglers, the Raspberry Rain razor has four ultra-thin blades and Aloe
Vera lubricating strips, meaning you can effectively say bye-bye to hair whilst
caring for your skin. There is also the practical pleasure of using a disposable –
that’s right, it’s affordable (£5.69), it works and you can simply bin it once
you’re done. This makes it perfect for shaving in unusual and tricky places such as festival camping grounds/

Each razor
features a handy travel cap to keep it clean whilst you’re on the go (nothing
worse than random bits of fluff sticking to your razor, ugh), and best of all
THEY SMELL WONDERFUL! Trust me, once you’ve been even one, possibly
booze-fuelled late night in a festival tent, anything that smells nice is happily
welcomed. Your tent may not smell great, but at least your skin will.

Wipes in
any form are an absolute blessing. As much as it would be great to take your
whole Clinique routine along with you, it’s important to pack light, so having
a multi-use product in a handy compact form is essential. Skincare wise, the
old faithful Simple wipes will do wonders in not only cleaning away smudged
eyeliner and Kylie Jenner lips from the night before, but they’ll also cleanse
your skin and leave you feeling clean and refreshed. Femfresh wipes are another
essential for any type of travels, especially if you’re liable to be getting
sweaty and don’t have access to a shower noon and night. I have a mini pack of
these with me everywhere – you never know when you’ll need a little freshen up,
and just as much as it’s important to take care of your skin, it’s even more
important to take care of your vagina. I especially recommend these to
individuals who are prone to cystitis, like me, as they help to balance your pH
– take these into the toilet with you everywhere!

And let’s
not forget the slightly more fun, but equally important stuff. I’m a fake tan
addict, so having the ability to easily mist on a golden glow without the fuss
of a tanning mitt and manual application is perfect for travelling. Not only
this, your group can share one can of the misting tan as it doesn’t touch the
skin, and so is an entirely hygienic way to lighten your load!
But don’t
forget – just because you’ve got fake tan on, it doesn’t mean that you don’t
have to protect your skin. Even if it’s cloudy, you’d be surprised at how much
the sun can affect your skin. Always apply sun protection in a good level of
SPF before you leave the comfort of your tent; if you’re wanting to combine it
with the fake tan, apply the SPF first as a moisturiser of sorts, let it dry,
and then mist the tan over the top for a smoother application.
your eyes from the sun is just as important as protecting your skin from the
sun, but when it comes to sunglasses, you can have a little more fun with it.
Quay Sunglasses are the it brand of the summer, so grab your
don’t-even-look-at-me reflective shades and party the day away in safety and
style. Oh, and what’s a festival without a little decoration? You’ll need some
metallic tattoos, of course.
