With high hopes of longer and warmer days ahead, it's time for everyone to flock outdoors and make the most of the sunshine!
Sadly, not everybody will be as excited about this prospect...
And if you relate to 3 or more of these then we're guessing you're one of these people!
Burning in weird places like the bottom of your feet is a completely regular occurrence...
And anyone pointing out how weird this is, or asking how you managed it will not be met with a welcoming response.
You have a least one past horror story that involves falling asleep in the sun and waking up like this...
So rather than people pointing out that you're 'going to burn', you'd appreciate it if they'd just cover you up. With a jacket, a magazine, a scarf, it really doesn't matter!
Did you relate?
Sadly we can't take away your traumatising sunburn memories, but we can help you prevent them in the future...
The sun is at it's strongest between 10am and 2pm.
So to avoid putting yourself at risk, grab some shade in this period. Always cover up vulnerable areas like your shoulders, chest, and head, and don't forget to keep reapplying the cream!
How much suncream should I be applying?
Whether you're an absolute sun god/goddess or more of a pale Gail, you should always apply a thick layer of sun cream at least 30 minutes before stepping into the sun. Then, reapply at least every 2 hours.
It might seem like an effort to get up and spend 5 minutes layering up, but it'll be more of an effort to get out of bed tomorrow if you don't.
Remember! You can burn in less than 15 minutes, and it can take 3-5 hours to develop. So, what looks like a little red patch now could be a bright and painful patch later!
