Unless your bride likes to spend time inside caves, chances are you’re treating her to a honeymoon at a sunny destination. Whether you’re skiing, surfing, horseback riding, or just driving around, you’re going to need protection from the sun. Save yourselves from the threat of skin cancer by packing powerful sunscreens for a variety of activities.
Get a long-lasting base for everyday use. If you only pack one sunscreen, choose a formula that offers you maximum protection. Multiply the amount of time you can usually spend in the sun by the SPF number on the bottle, and that’s how long you can go without reapplying. Many new products offer maximum protection without clogging your pores or leaving a greasy residue. Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 45 Sunblock, $9. 1-800-378-4786. http://www.drugstore.com
Protect your face. Your face needs the most protection from the sun. Not only must you save it from UV rays, you’ve got to make sure that you’re not clogging your pores or drying it out. Sunscreen charged with minerals like tourmaline can keep your skin looking fresh and radiant. If that’s not a selling point for you, just think how good it will look on her. Tourmaline Charged Protecting Lotion SPF 15 by Aveda, $38. 1-800-644-4831. http://www.aveda.com
Lips count, too! Even guys who practically lather up with sunblock often forget to protect their lips. You’ll need your lips, especially on your honeymoon. Use lip balm sticks to keep your lips covered, yet kissable. Sun Stick SPF 15 by Anthony Logistics for Men, $15. 1-877-737-4672. http://www.sephora.comNext>>
