It's in the Bag: Essentials for Island Hopping

Excuse me for stating the obvious, but catching sun rays on a tranquil island beach beats the hell out of catching them on the concrete streets of the urban jungle, even in California. One of our all-time favorite spots to island hop is along the shores of Greece. From Santorini with breathtaking sunsets to Mykonos with the friendliest hotel receptionists. Gorgeous beaches and amazing food… you just can’t go wrong! Whether you’re planning to sip cocktails on a beach or sailing from island to island, there are a handful of must-have items that every it-girl should carry with her while soaking up the sun.

 

1. Skin Protection

Rule number one at the water's edge, on a boat, at the pool or anywhere else under the sun: protect your skin! Be it Sunblock or sunscreen, this skincare-must prevents aging, burns and skin cancer and it should never be out of your reach. Which you choose depends on how much protection you want. Sunblock doesn’t get absorbed onto your skin, but creates a barrier on top of your skin to reflect damaging UV rays. Sunscreen is absorbed by your skin to protect it on a molecular level from the havoc those UV rays can wreak. Although there are arguments over which is better, the most important factor in selecting sun protection is the power of SPF. To protect against UVA (aging) and UVB (burn), SPF of 15 or higher is recommended.

 

2. Lip Protection

Don’t forget about those luscious lips. There are plenty of options for lip balms with SPF to keep your lips hydrated and protected from the sun. When selecting a lip balm with SPF, remember to look for products that offer broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Keep it moist (so to speak) with a convenient and cute EOS lip balm, which come in any color and flavor under the sun. These balms will help you keep those lips sun-kissed, not sun-dried!

 

3. Eye Protection

Sunglasses can be more than just a fashion statement! Of course, you should feel fabulous in your favorite pair, but your peepers should also be shielded from harmful UV rays. When selecting a pair of shades, make sure they provide adequate (i.e., 100%) UV protection. Go big or go home! To minimize UV rays entering your eyes from the sides, try a pair of oversized or wrap-around sunglasses. Don’t be fooled by darker, multi-color or polarized lenses, either; they don’t necessary provide better protection!

 

4. Sex Protection

For those of us who are single or not in fluid-bonded relationships. sun screen isn’t the only form of protection on the mind. Recent sex studies have shown that people on holiday get really horny. There is nothing like a love affair on an island where no one knows your name. Just as we put business before pleasure, always put safety before pleasure! Wrap it up, that’s the name of the game!

 

5. Pleasure Protection

Whether you’re island hopping with a partner in crime or flying solo, don’t forget to protect your sense of well-being. Do not forget to bring the multiple orgasms to your multiple island holiday! Keep it simple by bringing along a sex toy that is light, compact and simple to use. Who wants to deal with instructions and tutorials while on vacation! My rule of thumb is to leave it at home if it requires a second piece of luggage. Our Bcute Classic is the perfect companion for any island escape fantasy. Available in tropical colors royal purple, rose and jade in three sexy silhouettes. Throw a sexy curve into your vacation…  literally, with Bmine Basic Curve. Or add some exotic pearls into the mix with our Bcute Classic Pearl. And finally, while getting hitched on an island get-away is popular for some folks, I can only recommend you put a ring on it with our Bcharmed Basic Plus cock ring.
