If you’re fair or lightly tanned, SkinCeuticals has one of the best tinted sun protection creams on the market. It feels like nothing on the skin and can be layered regularly without caking. It provides a little bit of coverage and glow; a handy option if daytime makeup doesn’t slot into your itinerary.

Honeymoon Sun Cream Bonus Tips

  • If your SPF is new to you, pop a layer on before you go on honeymoon (but not before your wedding!). Sun creams can cause sensitive skin and eyes to react, and nobody wants to start married life with a rash on their face.
  • Always make sure your sun cream provides broad spectrum protection, i.e. protection from UVA and UVB rays.
  • HEAP it on. Sun cream only works properly if it’s applied properly, and studies show that most people don’t apply it properly. For the face, apply as thick a layer as you find comfortable.
