You know around this time of the year, they say that you should wear sunblock.<br><br><br><br>
Now, on the bright side, i probably got plenty of Vitamin D today, but I'm burnt as hell, and there's a big white band around my wrist, which is where my watch was. All i did was walk around blackpool. I thought it would be harmless. We never get sun here.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway - wear the sunblock. And don't wear a watch.

what's funnier than a watch tan is sunglasses tan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Ouch. I'm always getting burnt shoulders from being out in the sun in the summer. I always think "15 minutes won't do anything" - wrong!

My shoulders got burnt on Saturday and a little crispier today.... a little pink... very hot and starting to get extremely tight... Aloe is the best stuff.... nice and soothing.<br><br><br><br>
I hate how you say, eh, I won't get burnt, well, eh, yeah, that isn't always true!

I got a good amount of Vitamin D today from my 15 minute ride in to work, but it wasn't enough to burn me. I always have and always will have a biker's tan. Gotta love the spandex line.

anyone got a farmer tan?<br><br>
I have a really really great sandal tan. It's good though, because people don't think I have any colour, until I show them my feet, and they realize how blindingly white I usually am!

Last weekend I had a softball game, and I decided that one day to wear shorter socks(we usually wear reallly tall socks for softball) and so I wore like, ankle socks. I put sunscreen on, but i didn't get it all the way down my leg, so now I have this weeeiirrid line on my ankle. it's like translucent white->bright red. and then you see little finger marks from where I DID put on sunscreen.<br><br>
I add to loki's message: Cover yourself thoroughly.

I'm always a bit tanned. There was this time I had a haircut in the winter - someone asked me if I had gone to a solarium <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">.<br><br><br><br>
I rarely use sunblock because most varieties cause rashes (and because UV is supposedly really good for my eczema). I do stay in the shadow most of the time, though.

Even though I wear sunscreen, I still get sun. I get tan just from being at the playground with my son. I wear a 15spf, I should probably go higher, but they feel so greasy. I have a tank top tan, and a flip flop tan<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> My legs never really seem to tan.

i have sandle tan, talk about funny looking. i was in a store trying on clothes, came out of the change room to look in the mirror, without my sandles on, and i could hear the saleswoman cracking up laughing behind me. she was laughing at the alternating white and red stripes across my feet.<br><br><br><br>
always remember to put sunblock on the feet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> or take your sandles off.<br><br><br><br>
i actually already had permanent sandle tan where i'd burned my feet really bad a couple years ago wearing the same sandles, now it's just darker and will likely be this dark for a good long while
