Jetting off to a beachside post-wedding getaway? Stay glam with these products that will keep you pretty and protected, all honeymoon long.

1. Sunscreen
It's a non-negotiable! Wear an SPF 30 or higher every day to stay safe and avoid looking like a lobster on those romantic dinner dates. We like Shiseido WetForce Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion ($40, available at Shiseido).

2. After-sun gel
Overdid it in the UV rays despite your best efforts? Apply a cool-to-the-touch product like Korres Greek Yoghurt After-Sun Cooling Gel ($26, available at Korres), to soothe sore skin, hydrate, and help reduce redness.

3. Facial spray
These refreshing mists set makeup, hydrate skin, and help cool you down instantly. They're also awesome to revive your skin on moisture-sucking flights. Tip: Stash your bottle in the hotel's mini fridge to keep it extra chilly! Try La Mer The Mist ($65, available at Saks Fifth Avenue).

4. Salt spray
What's more vacation-y than beach waves? Plus, who wants to spend time wrestling with a blowdryer in paradise? To get the look, spritz your hair with salt spray, then let it air dry, for a cool, rumpled texture. Try Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion ($29, available at Bumble and Bumble).

5. Bronzers
For the most goddess-like glow, pack two! We love a powder bronzer for your face — it's easy to apply, buildable and believable! — and an oil for your body. It does double duty as a moisturizer and the luminous finish looks so sexy. We like Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Power ($53, available at Sephora), and Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmer Body Oil Spray ($40, available at Estée Lauder).

6. SPF lip balm
You need to keep those lips soft, kissable, and protected. (They're easily sunburnt, so don't forget about them!) We like Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($22, available at Fresh).
