Ouch!



I had a lunch meeting to transfer information for my JLA committee next year on Thursday. It was gorgeous outside so we sat on the patio. For two hours. It was lovely with a cool breeze. I wore the long Lilly that I purchased from RueLaLa. And then I drove home. Started to itch. Only to realize that I would soon turn tomato red. Not only am I burned to a crisp, but it is a funky burn too. Like one shoulder is terrible (pictured) and the other is bad and my back is bad and my chest (thank goodness I wear sunscreen on my face daily!) has a little color. But when I am wearing anything other than that dress, it looks so strange. I just didn't realize we would sit outside so I didn't think to lather up with SPF 50 like I usually do in such situations. "Ouch" is all I have to say!! Lesson learned. New bottle of body sunscreen shall be purchased this weekend.

ick. I am an old pro here - dunk a few tea bags in hot water as if to make tea. Toss them in the fridge for a bit to cool 'em down - then pat all over the burn. The tannin in the tea brings the swelling down and eliminates the burning feeling immediately. Blows aloe out of the water. I have really fair Irish/Swedish skin with freckles and use sunscreen year round now. But, not unusual for me to get burned going across the parking lot to the market. I feel so bad for you! Take care.

Ouch!! I feel your pain, I went to the beach last weekend and obviously didn't put on enough sun screen - I am peeling now - no fun!

:( aloe vera gel and ib profin- a sunburn is just an inflamation of the skin and ib prof is anti inflammatory- an old trick from my lifeguarding days!

feel better and if nothing else0 it happened during JL- you suffered for the kids! haha

Sunburns are no fun. I am experiencing the same thing right now after a day out in the sun yesterday!

Ooh - ouch! I hate the funky looking sunburns! I went to a baseball game a month ago and I still have the weirdest tan line on only one side of my body!!! It's ridiculous! Feel better soon :)

Ouch!!! My suggestion is Aloe Vera, but I'm intrigued by the tea idea.
Hope it feels better soon..

I'm in the same boat! I'm going to try purple pineapple's advice...

I will never ever go without sunscreen ever ever again! I promise!!!

MissBliss said...

Mary Kay night cream is the thing I swear by for sunburns.... :) better than aloe or solarcaine
