Travel and Festival Essentials

Summer is the time for festivals, road trips, and vacations! Whether you're heading to Lollapalooza or a weekend getaway at the beach, you'll want to travel prepared. Make sure you pack these travel essentials-- all fit easily into your purse or carry-on bag!

Keep it clean

A must-have for every occasion, especially at outdoor festivals and other places where you won't have ready access to running water and soap. Keep it clean naturally with Dr. Bronner's Hand Sanitizer Spray. Lavender-scented and in a convenient 2 oz. spray pump, this is the perfect size for your purse or bag. For an alcohol-free option, check out Cleanwell's Pocket-Size Hand Sanitizer Spray. Pre-fense Foam Hand Sanitizer features natural silicon to form a germ-fighting barrier on your skin and can last up to 24 hrs-- no need to reapply throughout the day!

Don't forget your 'screen

Make sure to slather up with SPF before heading out. But if you're going to be in the sun all day, you'll want to make sure you reapply at least every couple of hours. For quick reapplications on-the-go, Badger's Sports Sunscreen SPF stick is the perfect no-mess solution. We also love Mineral Fusion's SPF Powder Brush for sun protection you can easily apply to skin, face, and hair throughout the day. This silky-smooth mineral powder offers natural protection and comes in a convenient brush applicator.

No bugs allowed

Protect from those winged nasties with NOW's Bug Ban Spray, which naturally keeps the pests away with essential oils and is completely DEET-free. For extra protection, BugBand's Insect Repelling Bands can be worn like a bracelet to help keep bugs at bay throughout the day (and night!).

Stay hydrated

Make sure to pack an eco-friendly water bottle! But even when drinking water throughout the day, it can be hard to stay hydrated in the summer heat. This is where electrolytes come in! We love Nuun Sport Hydration Tablets for an on-the-go burst of hydration. Simply add a tablet to a 16 oz. water bottle and let dissolve. With natural flavors like strawberry lemonade and grape, you'll be gulping down hydration like a champ!

NOW's Effer C Packets are also loaded with vital electrolytes and come in refreshing flavors such as lemon-lime and cranberry-pomegranate. The stick-shaped packets fit conveniently into your purse or pocket!

Pucker up

Don't forget to take care of your lips! For all-natural SPF protection, keep Badger's Clear Zinc Oxide Sunscreen Lip Balm in your pocket for frequent application. Layer on some ultra-sheer summer color for a look you'll love all day long with Gabriel's Lip Gloss in Champagne or Mineral's Fusion Sheer Moisture Lip Tint in Shimmer or Glisten.

We hope these suggestions keep you clean and comfortable on all your summer adventures! If you're going to Lollapalooza, what artists are you looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to check out our team's Lolla playlists this Thursday!
