This weekend, we’re road-tripping to Indio Valley for music and dancing in the California desert.

And of course, you’ll want to make sure you’ve included lots of sunscreen.

Ahead, we’ve compiled a packing list of desert beauty essentials you’ll need so that you can keep your focus on Queen Bey.

Everything You Need to Know About Sunscreen

It goes without saying that sunscreen is critical for daily use. Even when skies are overcast and temperatures feel cool, the sun’s harmful UV rays are always a threat to your skin and daily protection is an absolute essential. Still, the biggest obstacle in sun protection is simply forgetting to apply it (or reapply it) in the first place. Our solution? Stock your beach bag with a water-resistant mineral formula, apply a high-factor primer before makeup and carry a broad-spectrum protective powder with you to touch up throughout the day. Set yourself up for safe sunning success by never being unprepared.

Ahead, an SPF breakdown, advice for where to wear and shoppable links to our favorite formulas for every occasion. Slather it on and soak up the sun, but safely.

How To Do the Erno Laszlo Double-Cleansing Method Plus Tips for Your Skin Type

To replicate our favorite facial at home, we employ the double cleansing method: removing makeup first with an oil, followed by a cleanser to wash the grime away. The age-old practice traces its lineage back to Dr. Erno Laszlo, the Hungarian physician who invented the double cleanse method in 1935. “Dr. Laszlo believed that if you do nothing else, wash your face,” says Kristy Watson, Erno Laszlo Chief Marketing Officer, of the man who basically invented personalized skin care for the likes of Greta Garbo, Jackie O. and Marilyn Monroe. “He believed that skin care should be personalized and that no two skin types are alike, which is why we offer multiple solutions in our collection.”

Today, nearly a century after its inception, the Erno Laszlo company continues to believe that healthy skin begins with a thorough double cleanse. “Our mantra is, we cleanse your skin without stripping it of its vital nutrients and moisture so the skin remains hydrated and refreshed,” says Watson. Below, she takes us step-by-step through finding our perfect routine, plus offers tips targeted to treating acne and other skin conditions.
