What are the things a newly wed bride should carry in her honeymoon bag for her beauty regimen?

- Body lotion
- Make up

- Feminine Hygiene
To minimize breakouts while you’re on honeymoon, avoid touching your skin while you travel. You can pick up any number of unknown bacteria that can result in any number of skin problems. If you’re going to apply makeup while you’re in transit, use an antibacterial hand wash on your hands first to further protect your skin.
Does she need any special preparations depending upon her honeymoon destination?
Smart packing will make for a better trip. Check the weather forecast earlier in the week and see what the lows and highs are looking like at your destination.
Summer / Beach / Monsoon Honeymoon
Before a beach / summer honeymoon, wear sunscreen on your body every night. Do it for two to three weeks ahead so the sunscreen builds up in your stratum corneum, and it makes your skin less likely to burn.
In case if you get a burn, treat it properly. In the event that you do get a sunburn (it happens to the best of us), you can follow these steps to speed relief. Apply a lotion with aloe to soothe and hydrate the skin. Then, drink green tea and take an antioxidant supplement— This will do the trick—to help prevent free radical damage to your cells. You can also take ibuprofen every four hours to reduce discomfort and redness.
With the right sunscreen, clothing, and accessories, both you and your skin can have a beautiful time at the hottest destinations.
Use facial mist
These facial mists “have natural minerals that will calm skin, and they make you look dewy. Plus, when you sweat, you lose minerals necessary for healthy skin so these are used to compensate for the loss.
An in-clinic salicylic acid peel twice a month will help balance oil secretion. It clears up dulling, dead skin cells, which not only helps even out any discoloration, but also draws excess oil out of the pores and leaves skin less shiny for the hot destination. It also clears out the pores, kills bacteria inside, and slows oil production, and it tightens the look of pores.
You may take Mesoglow (Multivitamin injections) to get the shine you want on your D day without worrying about breakouts.The effects of mesoglow last for about 3 – 6 months which will ideally cover your honey moon period.
Moisturize your skin and hair
Moisturizing is a very important factor if you wish to maintain your health and your skin and hair radiant looking. Drink plenty of water, whether it’s somewhere on a beach or a mountain resort, as dehydration is your skin’s most feared enemy. Maintain your hair’s moisture by applying nourishing masks which will leave your locks looking amazing and much easier to style.
Pores look more obvious in hot, humid weather. Use of a mild face & body exfoliants will make you look flawless & radiant.
Use appropriate accessories
No summer sun protection is complete without a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. A big hat ensures that your face is shielded from the sun, and protects areas that we inevitably miss with sunscreen. And when it comes to sunglasses, look for a wrap-around style that protects the entire area around the eyes. These two accessories not only look fashionable, but also help prevent wrinkles and other signs of sun damage.
Winter destination honeymoon
You may have found a moisturizer that works just fine in spring and summer. But for cold weather conditions find an “ointment” moisturizer that’s oil-based, rather than water-based, especially if you have dehydrated skin as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion. (Hint: Many lotions labeled as “night creams” are oil-based), but choose your oils with care because not all oils are appropriate for the face. Instead, look for “nonclogging” oils, like avocado oil, mineral oil, primrose oil, or almond oil. Shea oil — or butter — is controversial, because it can clog facial pores. You can also look for lotions containing “humectants,” a class of substances (including glycerine, sorbitol, and alpha-hydroxy acids) that attract moisture to your skin.
Slather on the Sunscreen
No, sunscreen isn’t just for summertime. Winter sun — combined with snow glare — can still damage your skin. Try applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and your hands (if they’re exposed) about 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply frequently if you stay outside a long time.
Use cleansing milk:
Use a creamy facial cleanser. Cleansers, which you use to remove make-up usually, strip away moisture and during winter, this problem gets magnified. So keep your face shiny by using creamy cleanser or in case of oily skin use water based cleanser.
Keep those lips pink & soft
One of the biggest problems you may face in cold weather during your honeymoon is chapped lips. Use a lip balm with at least SPF 15 and preferably one with antiseptic agents to aid in healing. Some lip balm products are made with tea tree oil, which helps heal painful cracks.
Take care of them too!
Your hands, feet, knees and elbows need to be looked after too. Use products containing shea butter, petrolatum, mineral oil, tea tree oil or glycerine & keep your body soft & smooth.
Does she need to take care of her diet during or before the trip?
We all know that drinking water is the key to clear skin. So make sure you keep yourself hydrated.
It’s way too easy to eat junk when you travel especially on your honeymoon. Watermelon and cucumber are very hydrating and cooling. Oranges are always a good choice because the smell is a proven mood lifter and helps to relieve stress of annoying airplane seatmates or highway traffic. Cherries and blueberries are also great snacks & may help you keep those dark circles away. So eat as many fruits as you can.
Too much restriction on a diet especially when you are on your honeymoon is not fair. So just relax & enjoy. We are there to take care of your skin & hair when you come back.
