Burn, baby, burn! Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel learned a valuable lesson while out in the sun, and she'll have the tan lines to prove it for a few days.

While in Bora Bora, a paradise where there's not a worry in the world, the model took to Instagram on Dec. 3 to show off a battle wound: her sunburned body!

"What happens in bora bora when you forget to use protection," she captioned the photo of her and Portuguese model Sara Sampaio. She used the hashtag "ouch."

In the image, viewed by Candice's 6.9 million Instagram followers, both beauties slightly pull down their bikini bottoms to show their burns. Candice dons a white bikini, while Sara rocks a black swim suit.

Both girls are in Bora Bora for a modeling shoot. However, Candice was able to break from work to spend time with her boyfriend Hermann Nicoli, posting a snap of the two of them kissing while overlooking the aqua blue ocean of Rio.

"Rio continua lindo," she captioned the image, with is translated to "Rio is still beautiful."

The break is probably well-deserved, as Candice has been working nonstop over the last few weeks. In November, he powered through the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show despite being ill.

She's better now, except for that burn.
