I'm sure you're wondering why hydrocortisone cream would be a necessity, but hear me out. You're probably traveling to a different climate for a music festival. Stagecoach is in the desert, Austin City Limits can get pretty humid, and Lollapalooza tends to be in the blistering Chicago heat.
Because my skin likes to surprise me, I have been known to get heat rashes on my cheeks and jawline due to a drastic change in the weather and have found that hydrocortisone cream helps with bumps and rashes. Plus, if you end up dealing with an itchy sunburn or other skin irritations, this will be your secret weapon.
Tip: If you develop a rash, gently wash your face and body with a mild cleanser, apply the hydrocortisone, let it absorb, then apply moisturizer, sunscreen, and any makeup you choose.
Try: Hydrocortisone Cream, 1% ($11) — get it at your local drugstore. PCA Skin Aprés Peel Soothing Balm ($32) is moisturizer made for use after chemical peels, but the main ingredient is 0.5 percent hydrocortisone.
