Beach beach beach.
I love the beach.
However, on the weekend I did something a little stupid...
I followed the instructions on my sunscreen lotion!
Yep, I know, silly me.
As noted on my sunscreen tube it informs the reader that this sunscreen is:
"4-Hour Water Resistant"
I stupidly thought that if the sunscreen was 4-hour water resistant I could frolick and surf in the water for 4 hours without needing to re-apply.
So... I did so!
And what happened?
Oh, nothing much... I just got MILDLY SUNBURNT on every area of my body... especially the body parts that had sunscreen applied!
I look like a pink jelly bean (that tastes like aloe vera).
I've been applying copious amounts of aloe vera gel which has been extremely soothing, but already my skin is starting to peel... it makes me look as though the hairs on my arms, legs and chest have dandruff!!
It even hurts to laugh.
And the most painful part is that I can't go to the beach until the sunburn clears up.
(Even though I mentioned before that I'd love to be in a cold climate with my previous sunburn bout, I think for the safety of all I'd best stay where I am with this hit. If I travel to a colder climate I might be held responsible for melting the ice caps and disturbing the already disturbed global warming situation!)
