This weekend kicked off the first of many outdoor festivals for me here in New York City. If you’ve never been to New York in the summertime, despite the occasional 100 degree day, sometimes unbearable humidity, and old buildings that don’t have central air conditioning, it really can an amazing time to be in the City. There’s a food festival, music festival, beer festival, wine festival, pickle festival (I could go on) nearly every weekend. With outdoor festivals comes the inevitable challenge of protecting your skin from excessive sun exposure, as well as practicing your anxiety and anger management skills while navigating large, obnoxious crowds of people.
Also, bring lip balm with SPF and extra sunscreen to reapply. I brought my Fresh lip treatment in both Coral, which is highly pigmented on me, and Rose which is more subtle. Personally, I prefer the subtle look for a hot day mainly because lip color smudging and straying on my face in the heat is not a good look. Oh, and I totally forgot my extra sunscreen, but thankfully my friends are more responsible than me.
As for anxiety and anger management: In cases where you have no phone service like this weekend, I like to eavesdrop on the conversations around me, people really say some entertaining stuff. If the conversations aren’t interesting enough then I will read a poorly written but highly entertaining book that I’ve downloaded on my phone. When it gets really stressful, my go to is deep breathing: breath out for longer than you breath in to calm your nervous system.

I use face sunscreen as well as moisturizer with SPF every morning on my skin. Not to mention reapplying every two hours to keep this pasty white skin from turning lobster-red.
