During the lead up to your special day, you have no doubt been taking extra special care of your skin – perhaps by booking a series of peels or treatments, following a cleaner eating regime or stocking up on skincare that packs a punch.
However, have you thought about how to maintain that ‘I do’ glow after the big day? A summer honeymoon calls for radiant, hydrated skin, but chances are, during your romantic escape, you will indulge a little (or a lot!) and may get a little lax on your skincare routine.
Add a long haul flight, dehydration, salt water, heat and humidity, and your skin could look less-than-luscious a few days into your vacay. Luckily, by packing a few skin saviours you can achieve great skin all honeymoon – without compromising on cocktails!
1.ProPlenish Marine Collagen
Combat lacklustre skin, brittle nails and dull hair with a serving of collagen on-the-go! ProPlenish is edible marine collagen sourced from deep-sea fish and hydrolysed for maximum absorption. It’s designed to restore your body with the nutrients it needs to produce healthy hair, skin and nails – all of which rely on the all-important protein, collagen.
With daily use, you will notice plump, hydrated skin, smoothing of fine lines and an even skin tone – giving you a gorgeous honeymoon glow! Pop a ProPlenish travel set in your suitcase to enjoy 10 servings in both flavourless and lemon flavour.
2. Eco Tan Natural Coconut Sunscreen
Sunburned skin is definitely not a good honeymoon look, so packing quality sun protection is a must! Opt for an organic sunscreen like Australian-made Eco Tan Natural Coconut Sunscreen.
Made from natural mineral zinc, it offers both UVA and UVB protection for up to three hours. Plus, it’s reef friendly, so you can safely snorkel over coral reefs!
Whisk away dirt, sunscreen, sweat and makeup after a long day of swimming and exploring and deep cleanse to reveal salon-style skin! The brush heads on the Clarisonic range of sonic technology devices oscillate at more than 300 movements per second – resulting in thoroughly cleansed and smoother skin.
This super swift skincare ritual (it literally only takes one minute) is the perfect way to combat congestion, blemishes and uneven skin tone which are prone to arise in warmer climes.
