Sunday surfing = Monday sunburnt

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Good morning all,

Hope you all had a good weekend, and are glad to be back at work/school/still sat at your PC at home due to the fact that you are unemployed etc etc :p

I have the most horrific sunburn, spent 5 hrs on my surfboard yesterday thinking i had enough cream on and a rash vest (so no sunburnt back at least) but the sun had been reflecting off the water into my face, and now i look like a beetroot! Ouch, I'm in pain, and in need of some sympathy :(

    my weekend surfing in the UK (at Croyde) and the water still being 12deg C meant I had my full suit on, my face is a little pink, but not too bad as I did plaster myself with factor 20. Next time it will be factor 30...
    *gives small amount of sympathy* but not next time.

    Awww, diddums :(

    Poor you! I'm suburnt too, kinda annoying but nothing that a bit of after-sun won't sort out! A little embarrassing when your face is bright red though - hehehe!

    Common mistake to forget the face mate. And as you found out probably the easiest (and sorest) place to burn. Always use a really high factor (30+) and obviously make sure it's waterproof :rolleyes:

    been there...although this year in the Eastern US, all we are getting is rain. And it's been below normal temperature-wise all year. So much for Global warming.:rolleyes:

    If you get really bad sunburn theres a good remedy, rub yoghurt over it. Just the natural yoghurt..........please dont ask me why it works because im thick and I aint got a clue :D
