With Oppikoppi this weekend and Rocking the Daisies on the way, here are some glamping – glamour camping ­– tips.

Lessen the load

Festivals have dedicated parking and camping areas which means you’ll have to lug your kit from point A to B. Pack lightly and pack wisely: stock up on multi-purpose products in sample size.

Sunscreen and water

These are the two non-negotiables for any festival. Avoid being burnt and dehydrated; you can’t afford to be out of action.

Dark nail varnish

Don dark polish to disguise the festival dust that is bound to make its way under your nail beds.

Beauty basics

These are the essentials:

Moisturiser: keep skin moisturised after prolonged exposure to the sun.

Waterproof mascara: you’ll more than likely be getting wet, be prepared!

Make-up wipes: the easiest way to get make-up off and/or freshen up.

Waterless shampoo: with limited access to showers, waterless shampoo is a godsend.

Vaseline: skin tends to dry out and get scratched; Vaseline will help soothe these troubles.
