Preparing for the best honeymoon: health and beauty tips

Want to have the best honeymoon? Of course you do. In order to have the best honeymoon, you just need to do a little preparation. Our Romantic Travel Experts have compiled a few tips and pointers that will help you. These are items that are common sense items, but we all know how busy wedding planning and preparing for a honeymoon can get you sidetracked. Here are a few honeymoon health and beauty tips to help ensure that you are ready for the trip of a lifetime - your honeymoon!

  1. Keep your nails beautiful. Of course, you'll probably want to have a professional manicure for your wedding, but it's just as important for your honeymoon as well. Everyone will want to look at your new wedding bands, you'll take a lot of photos on your honeymoon vacation, and when holding up your champagne flutes on those romantic dinners with your sweetie, you'll want your nails to look polished. The best choices are a natural look - pale pinks, clear, or French manicures are recommended. These are the least likely to draw attention if you get a small nick or two in your manicure; and when they grow out, your nails will still look natural.
  2. For the best honeymoon experience, prepare with good eating habits and exercise leading up to your honeymoon. This will help keep your skin looking radiant, your hair nice and shiny as if you were in a shampoo commercial, and keep your nails from being brittle. It'll also condition your body's overall health and prepare you for any excursions, such as snorkeling, hiking, or swimming under waterfalls. Staying active will also help you burn any extra calories you might consume while on vacation, so you can enjoy every morsel without feeling guilty.
  3. For the groom, make sure that he has had a recent haircut and a nice, clean shave before your trip. If he wants to grow it out while on vacation, that's fine - he's on vacation. He won't have time to worry about haircuts and smooth shaves while enjoying your trip of a lifetime.
  4. Pack your his and her toiletry kits well in advance, so you won't even have to think about it when it's time to pack. Just fill with essentails and check ahead of time with your resort or hotel if they provide complimentary toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, lotion, shampoo and conditioner, etc.) - take advantage of those amenities. The less you have to worry about, the more time you'll have the best time relaxing and enjoying your honeymoon.
  5. Be sure to bring the proper lotion for your destination. Sunscreen is in most day lotions, but if you're going to a beach destination, you may want to pack extra sunscreen or sunblock. The worst is getting sunburn on vacation and having to miss out on any activities.
  6. Want to have soft, kissable lips for your sweetie? No problem. All you have to do is get a soft toothbrush (children's brushes work just fine; or even a washcloth will do) and soak in warm water and baking soda. Before you go to sleep, after you brush your teeth, take that presoaked toothbrush and brush your lips gently. This exfoliates your lips. Right after, apply a healing lip balm. You'll wake up with soft, healthy lips.
  7. The best honeymoon is a well planned honeymoon. If you're headed for a destination that has mosquitoes, don't go unprepared! The last thing you'll want on your honeymoon is irritated skin. Make sure you don't attract the mosquitoes by wearing strong floral or fruity smelling products. There are non-scented repellants out there, just be sure to check with your local drug store and do your research to see which ones will work best for you. Test runs with these types of products before you travel is highly recommended. You'll need to be sure your skin does not have a reaction to them and you should be satisfied with the scent. Other precautions include:
    • Be aware of pools of water and moist plants - these are prime breeding spots for mosquitoes.
    • Limit your outdoor activities during dawn and dusk - a time when mosquitoes are most likely to be active.
    • Wear lighter colored clothing items.
    • Use the AC at night - opening windows will invite unwanted guests in to your room.
    • Mosquito nets are always a good idea.
    • When getting a massage, choose lotions or oils that are not floral or fruity if possible. Good alternative scents are lavender, lemongrass, and tea tree oil.
    • Please note that perspiration can attract mosquitoes.
    • If you eat bananas on your vacation, your body will emit an odor that is highly attractive to mosquitoes.
  8. Drink plenty of water to prevent heat exhaustion, dehydration and sickness.
  9. It's a good idea to schedule a doctor's visit 3 months or earlier prior to your honeymoon. This will give you plenty of time to make sure you get the proper vaccinations or medicine needed for your trip.
  10. While you may not need to bring a full medicine cabinet with you on your trip, it may be best to prepare for the worst. Sometimes emergencies come up and basic medicines become hard to find or are ridiculously expensive while on vacation. Here are a few suggested items to bring in your emergency kit:
    • Sunscreen/Sunblock
    • Backup pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses
    • Multivitamins
    • Aspirin/Pain reliever
    • Prescription medication
    • Aloe vera gel
    • Neosporin/Antibiotic cream or gel
    • Anti-diarrheal medication
    • Allergy medicine (antihistamine)
    • Bandaids
    • Seasickness pills
    • Water purification tablets
    • Cold or flu medication
    • Birth control
