Preparing Your Skin for Summer Conventions

by Jessica Stevenson 01 Jul 2024

Hey, geeky friends! 🌞✨

Summer is here, and you know what that means – convention season is upon us! Whether you’re gearing up for Anime Revolution, Fan Expo, Comiccon, or any other awesome event, it’s essential to keep your skin in tip-top shape. Long days, heavy costumes, and the summer heat can take a toll on your skin. But don't worry, I've got you covered with some essential skincare tips to help you shine like the star you are!

The Importance of Summer Skincare

Summer brings challenges for your skin – think heat, sweat, and sun exposure. Add in the hustle and bustle of conventions, and your skin might feel like it’s in overdrive. But with a few simple steps, you can keep your skin looking and feeling fabulous.

Essential Skincare Tips for Summer Conventions

  1. Hydration is Key: Staying hydrated is crucial, both inside and out. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin and body happy. For an extra boost, try our shea butter infused shower frosting. This foaming sugar scrub exfoliates and cleanses in one step, leaving your skin soft and refreshed. It's perfect for a quick morning routine before heading to the con!
  2. Sun Protection Even if you’re spending most of your time indoors at the convention, don’t skip the sunscreen. The sun’s rays can still reach you, especially during those outdoor cosplay photoshoots. Look for a lightweight, non-greasy sunscreen that won’t clog your pores or mess up your makeup.
  3. Pre-Convention Prep Getting your skin ready before the event is essential. A few days before the convention, treat yourself to a good exfoliation with our shower frosting. It’s a fantastic way to slough off dead skin cells and prep your skin for the days ahead. Follow up with a hydrating sheet mask for an extra glow.
  4. During the Convention Conventions can be long and exhausting, but a few quick skincare tips can keep you looking fresh all day. Keep a lip balm handy to avoid dry, chapped lips. Our lip balms are perfect for on-the-go hydration and come in delicious geeky flavors. Also, consider carrying blotting papers to manage any excess oil and keep your makeup looking flawless.
  5. Post-Convention Recovery After a long day at the con, your skin deserves some TLC. Unwind with one of our bath bombs or bubble cakes – perfect for a relaxing soak that’ll help you destress and rejuvenate your skin. Follow up with a gentle cleanser to remove any makeup and impurities, and let your skin breathe overnight.
