No matter what your honeymoon destination may be, you want to look good and not waste any valuable time doing it. Planning is the key. With a little pre-wedding day shopping and preparation these 10 great tips can help you maximize your look using minimal time and effort after you’ve said, “I do”.
Go to the salon if you must or choose a self-tanner to use at home. Either way, start to build your base tan at least three weeks before the big day. As your wedding day approaches, you’ll be busy and may not get to tan every day. Be sure your tan looks natural with no streaks or white patches. This is especially important if you’re honeymooning in the tropics. Nothing stops the fun like a burn. (Also useful if you plan to spend a lot of time indoors.) Stop the Stubble If you’ve never waxed or used hair removers, be sure to try them at least two months before you leave and use them at least twice to determine how they will affect your skin and how long they last.
Be ready for anything and nothing will catch you off-guard. Pack sunscreen, a pumice stone, manicure kit, cotton swabs for touch-ups and cleaning up smeared makeup, allergy medicine – even if you’ve never had allergies you have no idea what you’ll encounter in a foreign country or how it will affect your skin, clear Band-aids, lip balm and enough mints to last the trip – you don’t want your mouth filled with gum.
Pack Smart, Part 2
Just in case your bags don’t arrive when you do, pack a few must-haves in your carry-on: cleansing wipes, deodorant wipes, teeth cleaning wipes, nail polish remover wipes (…no liquids here), those mints and a razorless shaving kit.
Hair Care Is a must for looking and feeling great. Find a multipurpose cream that will tame frizzies and manage your locks. Plan ahead for days at the beach when your hair will dry with no styling. Buy cute headbands or clips. Try quick spray in gels and detanglers before you leave for the honeymoon so you know they work. Bobby pins are a must!

Keep your Lips Healthy
You’ll be using them a lot. And if he has any facial hair your lips will soon be paying the price. Take along a lip balm with SPF 30 and don’t be afraid to use one that’s a little thicker than you normally use. Your lips have no way to protect themselves apart from what you put on them.
Show off your New Ring You’ll be holding hands and gazing at those bands so don’t neglect your nails. Buy your nail color from the salon if you got a manicure and don’t let chips in your polish or broken nails go unfixed.
