Welcome back to BellaSugar's series on honeymoon beauty. Don't forget to read the last two parts about for beauty essentials for a tropical trip and the best beauty brands to check out to snatch up vacation. For those of you more natural or daring brides who are planning a thrill-seeking adventure like hiking in the rain forest, heli-skiing or sailing around the world, don't overlook your beauty essentials. Here are three must-haves for an adventurous honeymoon.
I can't stress enough the importance of packing sunscreen. If you are going to be doing activities outside, a bad sunburn can ruin your once-in-a-lifetime vacation!
Lancome has just come out with a new UV Expert SPF 20 Sunscreen ($35) with Mexoryl SX, one of the few ingredients to block harmful and age-accelerating UVA Rays. Pack it, wear it and face the sun with confidence!
For two more outdoorsy honeymoon beauty essentials
There is nothing worse than getting eaten alive by pests. While typically I would suggest a special perfume or scented body lotion for your honeymoon, on this type of journey, you might attract insects! Not sexy.
Instead, I suggest packing something like this Burt's Bees Herbal Insect Repellent ($6.99) that smells of lemongrass, citrus and rosemary or this Kiss My Face Sun Swat Sunscreen Spray ($10) that also smells great and wards off annoying little buggers!
Keep lips protected and moist for nights full of long, lingering kisses. Shiseido Sun Protection Lip Treatment SPF 36 PA++ ($18) is a super charged lip balm that will prevent sunburn, drying and chafing. It shields lips from UVA and UVB rays and adds a hint of shine (so that you still look sexy without seeming that you are trying)! This lip protection was even recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, so you know it's good stuff.
