"I always have face gems, I always have an SPF," she said, adding that she always makes sure to pack a phone charger, a bandana for the dust, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, and a "jean or leather jacket" for when it gets cold, especially during chilly nights in the desert.

She also said that she brings gum in case someone has bad breath or deodorant in case "someone's underarms smell."

Olivia Talks The Importance Of Hydration... Especially When Drinking!

The Rhode Island native also explained that she starts off the event by drinking water and staying hydrated throughout the festival.

"I'm just going to make sure that I'm basically hydrated so that every day is enjoyable," she explained. "We all know that the famous rule of thumb is that you should have a glass of water between every single drink that you have as you're drinking throughout the night, so that the next day is more bearable and enjoyable."

"So I'm definitely going to start with my hydration at Club Hydration, always have my evian Sparkling carbonated water with me on hand at all times," she continued.

"That way, I'll be able to really enjoy the weekend because we've all made that mistake before, haven't we?" she joked.

She also revealed that drinking plenty of water is how she keeps her skin looking smooth and glowing throughout the years.

"People always ask, 'What is your beauty routine? Or what is your biggest beauty secret?' and I always tell everybody that if you're not drinking tons of water and getting enough sleep, you can try any treatment in the world and you will not feel or look the way you want," Olivia explained.

"You need to be drinking tons of water or sparkling water and you need rest," she added.
