Hello ladybees! I am in need of some major help.
We are in the process of planning our honeymoon and I am having a hard time deciding on where to go because of how fast I burn. Even with a base tan and loads of spf, I still burn.
We thought about heading to Paris, but we decided that we’d rather relax by a beach and not deal with being in a big city.
His mom told me to get long- sleeved swimsuits. Not a bad idea, but I imagened myself in a sexy bikini that week.
What do you ladies think about a long-sleeved swimsuit? Will I stick out like a sore thumb?

Go to a beachside hotel with cabanas. You can be right by the water but have more coverage and sun protection. I can’t be in the sun for more than an hour without needing some sort of coverage or relief (going inside) and I stayed here:
You can get good deals on cheapcarribean.com We didn’t pay anything extra for the cabana, just had to request it the day before. You could probably just call/email the hotel and ask to reserve one for everyday. I would recommend a nice (but semi thin) scarf/sarong to cover yourself with when you are outside and not covered by a roof or something.
You can rock a long sleeve bathing suit and still look amazing! I think they look cute.
How often are you applying SPF as well? Make sure you apply after going in the water too.

Rash guards and bikini bottoms are very in right now! A good friend of mine has vitiligo and she’s very pleased they’re in fashion since she’s been wearing them for years, haha.
You could also still wear the sexy bikinis and keep a long sleeve linen beach shirt/coverup handy for when you feel you’re getting too much sun.

My husband had to wear a long sleeve swim top on our honeymoon at times (like snorkelling) because he burns so easily.
He still looked hot and we still had a great time!

honeylovebee : I cover Asian investments and go there a lot and those girls know how to care for skin! My idols! So I’ve gotten tips over the years. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. If you burn through sunblock like I do you can’t go out in the ocean without a rash guard a hat sunblock and sunnies unless you want a burn. The ocean reflects the UV rays up so you need to keep applying to your face even with the hat and sunnies. I wear a bikini with very little bottom coverage to look cuter then my rash guard then coppertone baby 100 slathered everywhere and pull the rashguard down over my hands so they don’t burn. My rashguard is Tommy Bahama. Your chest has the thinnest skin so that is really quick to burn. Try to get a bikini with the higher halter neck. For me, I always wear long sleeves in the sun. Victoria’s Secret used to make these paper paper thin hoodies and I wear them for beach volleyball and they block out the sun. Must have been 90 degrees and I was fine. Don’t know what I would do without those. They are that Pink brand.
You have to call ahead to the hotel to see how much shade they have in the pool and around the pool. My hotel in Cambodia was luxe they had these fancy cabanas a swim up bar with a huge overhang. I was fine. I chose it over Fiji bc their Starwood had little shade and I’m not looking old bc the hotel won’t spring for umbrellas.
