After partying out in the desert sun during the two weekends during Coachella, you learn the importance of sun protection, sun relief/repair, and practical yet stylish festival wear.
Colorescience's genre-busting powdered sunscreen in a refillable tube with a brush is and should be the standard classic in any festival-goer's pouch but you need more than that.
Colorescience's sun protection products are way more refined and diverse than your average sunscreen lotion or cream.
For backup, slather on these serum-like protective primers, instead of foundation, all-over face then dust their classic powdered sunscreens to set them for double-protection.
What's really and literally cool, you can use their items anywhere on your body, as well as your face;..and they're portable.
Ok, post-recovery which is now.
After you scrubbed off the dirt, the sweat, and the flash tattoos, your fried chromosomes are aching for some relief.
For an easy spritz, spray on Colorescience's Hydrating Setting Mist and Sunforgettable Setting Mist.
Hydrating Setting Mist's Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps to guard against free radical damage, calms and soothes skin. The Vanilla and Sandalwood soothe the skin also.
When you did some real damage, red, peeling skin, you need to spray Sunforgettable Setting Mist's D20 Heavy Water. It has larger water molecule for increased hydration with Ylang Ylang and Chamomile to help soothe the skin.

If you want some evening "oomph," dab Colorescience's Illuminating Serum in Champagne Kiss for rosy cheeks or Bronze Kiss for contouring or as a bronzer.
The extra "oomph" comes from...
Multi-Mineral Complex (Zinc, Magnesium, Copper) - Free radical scavengers, boost effect of other performance ingredients.
2 Peptides - Amino acid compounds that enhance skin via various methods of action *see peptide glossary Palmitoyl Tripeptide 5 - Helps to boost collagen to reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate - Smoothes skin and helps to reduce appearance of expression lines by relaxing facial muscles.
Hyaluronic Acid - Powerful hydrator, gives a plump look to skin.
Pearl Powder - Rich in amino acids & minerals to help skin appear radiant & smooth, imparts a healthy glow while minimizing the appearance of uneven skin tone.
Of course, we need lip smackers to moisturize our lips.
Colorescience's Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35 save our lips from the sun and dehydration; and they come in universal rosy, natural shades.
Don't pack. Shop. Done as it is easy.
Since you paid close to $500 for the weekend General Admission pass then drop a couple hundreds on hotel room and meals, you might as well up the ante on your festival gear.
If you're in, you're in which means you're circuiting the afternoon pool party circuit from resort hotel to private party estate.
This means some sophisticated resort/party gear.
Lilly Pulitzer for Target might had crash the internet but Trina Turk pushes Lilly Pulitzer's punchy resort wear further.
Lilly Pulitzer's East Coast Preppy Resortwear still made out of water and sweat-soaking, constrictive suiting, woven fabric that doesn't move with the body.
Trina one-upped better. She took sporty swimsuit fabric then reinvented it into splashy contemporary resortwear that takes you from pool to party. Her prints are just as peppy as Lilly's but the construction and fabrications are more functional for festivals and pool/beach parties. As they say in the East Coast, from beach to broadwalk.
So forget wasting your precious cash on one-off fads from mass fast-fashion chains and save your time and energy by shopping all your wardrobe needs at Trina Turk, Palm Springs' hometown girl.
Coachella is Palm Springs' local pride and joy. Trina has a loyal festival-goer from the get-go. Her collections knows what is needed on the festival grounds and surrounding resorts. Leave it to her staffs to dress you up so you don't have to.
You wouldn't regret it because whatever they select for you, will last beyond Coachella and travels well from the West Coast to East Coast's Summer Society parties, like Spoleto USA in preppy but beachy Charleston, South Carolina.
Her resortwear is so chic that the staff said you switch out the sandals for basic black pumps for a proper night out.
Trina Turk and Colorescience got you covered. All you have to do is stash them in your carry-on.
