never want another sunburn~~Ever

Thursday, April 23, 2009

Yesterday I volunteered for Earth Day so I was outside from about 9:30am-2pm.

I was wearing a T-shirt but still have ended up with a helluva burnt neck and shoulder. My lower arms & face got some color but nothing like my neck. This must be the worst sunburn I ever had cuz usually if I end a day with some color its usually gone in 24 hrs, but my co-workers said to expect this one to stay a week and said it will soon be bubbling and peeling.

I have never had to worry about a burn before, so I don't usually ever use sunscreen...but after this I will surely be taking some with me on my camping trip in June down at Indian Gardens. When I was a kid, my brothers used to have me put Noxzema on their burns but at the moment I don't have that either.
Geez even my hair hurts when it brushes against the back of my neck...and I don't even have long hair anymore.

Should have some rain this Saturday...geez right now I wish it was Saturday.

    Ooh, sunburns suck. I get at least one painful one every year. I'm "fish belly" white, so I burn really easily. You'd think I'd have learned by now.

    If it still burns, gently rinse it with white vinegar. You'll smell like a salad, but you'll feel SO much better.

    You have to remember you are back in the high country. The sun is so much more intense here then back east. If I pull my hair back into a pony tail to work that will be the first thing to burn because my neck doesn't normally see sunshine. :)

    Hope you get feeling better and make sure that sunblock is in your pack..

    Yikes! That sounds painful. At least you got it for a good cause, but still....

    I keep a bottle of Aloe in the refrigerator for just such occasions!
    Feel better soon.
