The 5 Beauty Products That Saved Me During My First Camping Trip



I'm approaching 30, and there are so many things I want to do before my 20s are over. One thing on my list was camping. You would think that given my Southern roots, this was something I did growing up, but my mom figured swimming was a rugged enough activity for my sister and I to spend our summers practicing.

This Memorial Day weekend, while most New Yorkers headed east or went on a relaxing vacation, I finally went camping. It was everything I thought it would be: fun, outdoorsy, sweaty, and uncomfortable.

Being the overpacker that I am, I brought along so many unnecessary things, from maxi dresses to tinted moisturizer. I had a feeling it was silly to bring these things along, but I wanted to be fully prepared.

While I used the heck out of bug spray and lived in a baseball cap and sneakers, there were five essentials that fell into the beauty category that helped me survive the elements. Without these, I probably would have been a damsel in serious distress rather than a happy camper. 

Read on to learn about the products that helped me make it through my first camping trip below.
