With festival season upon us, it's time to start thinking about your beauty game plan. And, while stocking up on dry shampoos and cleansing wipes is definitely wise, there's one integral product you should definitely be throwing in your carry-on: sunscreen.
According to a recent survey by Poshly, only 27% of women say they wear sunscreen every day, 30% say they try to apply daily but forget — which is matched with the percentage of women who say they only wear it seasonally. The survey also found that 40% of women shop for sunscreen only around summertime. Womp womp.
Yes, we know it's not as fun as flower crowns and glitter eyeliner, but with the amount of time you'll be spending rocking out in the bright sun, having a handy SPF on hand to protect your skin is a must. Do you really want to be sleeping in a tent/tucked in a rollout bed wrapped in scratchy hotel blankets with a searing sunburn? That's what we thought.
But, you don't need to worry about spending your precious musical-appreciation time greased up like a Butterball on Thanksgiving. There are plenty of new, non-greasy SPF options on the market right now that give you the protection you need without clogging pores or leaving behind a grease slick on your skin.
