I Have a Sunburn

    My Whole Face

    I tan indoors during the week but I usually have make-up on when I'm coming from work. This past weekend was my first outdoor weekend of the year. My face is on fire! I should've worn a cap. Aloe vera is my new number one homie.

    Hhmmm Another One

    Kinda looks like that group picture too! I normally wear sun block but the wind was so cool and the clouds kept hiding the sun and I just forgot. I actually hate putting it on... hate the smell, the feeling and having to stop and do it. Guess I earned another burn.

    Owwie!

    I have a Not so bad sunburn, I have had worse in the past, I remember, last year, I got sunburn so bad, I couldn't even wear a shirt, without it hurting, or lay in bed, at least it is not that bad this time, but still, it is there, and it does hurt.

    Peelings...nothing More Than...peelings....

    I have extremely fair skin.  I love to swim.  These two facts do NOT work well together!  Most days I get in the water, do laps for a couple hours and go home.  That keeps me slightly scorched, but not burned.  But today I did my laps...then chatted with...

    Yay For Sunshine!

    I have some slight sunburn on my cheeks, nose, my left shoulder, and the bottom fronts of my legs. I haven't been to the beach in a while up until yesterday. And it was my first time wearing a bikini.
