Honeymoon skincare regimes are just as important as your wedding skincare regimes. I mean who doesn't want to look great on their honeymoon as well? Follow our top tips to achieve that glorious post-wedding glow.
Your honeymoon is the ideal chance to let your skin breathe. Opt to go bare-faced in order to give your skin the break it needs from harsh chemicals that can lead to clogged pores. If you're off on a sun honeymoon, the heat and humidity won't bode well with makeup anyway, so it's a bonus. If you really want some sort of coverage, opt for a BB cream over your SPF.
The last thing you want to be doing while away is a 12-step regimented honeymoon skincare regime. You've been pretty strict in the run-up to your wedding, but now it's time to go back to basics. Keep it simple and limit your products for clear, hydrated skin. A good cleanser, exfoliator and light moisturiser (or serum) should do the job.
Treat your skin post and during flight
Hello, sheet masks! We all know that flying can wreak havoc on your skin, so it's important to pump those lost nutrients back into your skin. The plane air sucks all moisture out, which leads to dry skin and increased oil - no beuno! To avoid this, get yourself a good sheet mask for the journey. While you might look like a mentaler on the plane, pop that mask on and let it get to work on your skin.
Increase your SPF
We've heard skin experts say time and time again that we should be wearing SPF every day, all year round. No matter what the weather's like, UV rays are always present, so you need to take care of your skin. If you're travelling somewhere with a hotter climate, the sun is much stronger, so you will need to bump up your SPF usage. Nothing ruins a romantic getaway like ending up like a freshly cooked lobster - nuh-huh honey!
Nothing messes up your skin more than dehydration. This is especially important if you're travelling to a hotter country. Make sure you're knocking back plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. (In between the vino, of course, we're not animals!)
Catch some Zzzzs
Now, we're not saying be in bed by 9 pm every night, but make sure you're getting your eight hours. Sleep deprivation is a key factor in dull, tired looking skin. So for that rejuvenated honeymoon glow, make sure you're getting enough sleep.
