Sun Lover's Warning


Hello Blogworld friends! I had a great few days at the beach relaxing and soaking up some sun. As always, I took lots of pictures, so maybe I'll post a few more later on in the week.

In case you're heading out for a late summer vacation yourself, or squeezing in a long weekend before the school schedule routine takes over, or just plan on spending some time out in the sun, I've got a tip for you:

Make sure your sunscreen is evenly distributed or you may end up looking like this~~



Thankfully, my smart daughter brought Ocean Potion soothing gel with us, so I'm not hurting. I just look like the mottled muddled creature I am. :)

Yikes!

We call that the Cajun tan. Slap some meat marinade on it and you've got the fixin's for tonight's dinner. (just kidding!) I hope it's not as painful as it looks. I'm sure the rest and relaxation made it worthwhile.

DANG, girl!! I'm glad you got some soothing stuff to put on those lobster legs. =) Thankfully I haven't been sunburned like that this year...but last year I was so badly burned (in March) that I had to go see a dermatologist for skin care.

Terri Tiffany said...

LOL I did that same thing a week ago at the beach. Never thought about my knees:)) Glad you had a great tine!

Donna M. Kohlstrom said...

OUCH!!!! Grab some aloe vera and apply generously!!

Missed you! Glad you're back and had fun.

Marguerite said...

Ouch Angie! Exactly the reason that I wear a #50 spf sunscreen on every inch of exposed skin. Donna's right, pure aloe vera gel is the best remedy. Hope you feel better soon and glad that you passed a good time, cher.

Whoa!

Melissa Marsh said...

Oh boy. That looks painful! Glad you had a good time. :-)

Jody Hedlund said...

Ouch! I'm paranoid about too much sun exposure! If you a person wearing long sleeves, hat, and pants on the beach, it's probably me! :)

I found the best sunscreen at Trader Joes, it goes on so easily and I even went sailing and didn't get burnt. Sunburned knees, doesn't look fun. Well, at least you found relief. Hope you're on the mend.

Sharla said...

Ouch! Looks like something I'd do. We went fishing three weeks ago, and I had one little spot that I missed, was great on everywhere else. On my knee. It faded and was forgotten. That one little spot started peeling yesterday. Three weeks later.

Cheffie-Mom said...

OUCH!! OUCH!! OUCH!!

Karen said...

Hot, hot mama!! At least you don't have the sunburn outlining the shape of a handprint like I once did. :0 My dad always said, if it hurts mix hand lotion/aloe and corazon cream and rub it in.

Feel better,
Blessings

Karen said...

Ouch! That happened to Hubby this year....it may have been that our sunscreen is several years old.

♥ Boomer ♥ said...

Oh, no! Awful! I have to be ever so careful in the sun and lather up fiercely Heading to Galveston and packing the sun lotion FOR.SURE!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Old Lobster Legs is doing great -- can't even really feel the heat.

I'll be getting back on schedule tomorrow, so will be around to visit and catch up!

Sandra Leigh said...

Hmmm. I thought I had commented, but I guess I dreamed it. ;>) Lots of sympathy, but no hugs - 'cause that might hurt your sunburn.

Lori said...

Oh, that doesn't look good. I try to stay out of the sun most of the time but I do end up with those, especially this year, when I haven't used sunscreen almost at all, because it's been so cool and rarely sunny. Good it doesn't hurt.

Jessica said...

OUch! :-(

B.J. Anderson said...

Holy cow! You burn like I do! Get unmottled soon.

Deb Shucka said...

I've managed stripes before. Thank God for aloe vera. :-)

My husband, who insisted on applying his own sun screen, once ended up with a white hand mark on his sunburned back.
