    I have pretty pale skin and burn extremely easy. On Tuesday, I had to go to the village to get a few things and it was a nice day so my friend and I walked. I put on suncream (about factor 50 because that's the minimum I need...) and we set off. It takes about an hour to walk there and an hour back, and we spent around 30 minutes in the village itself. It was only 22 degrees but my forhead burned, my shoulders and arms burned (I'm still peeling now) and my knees somehow got a bit of it as well (despite me wearing a past knee-length skirt).

    It was just as bad on holiday last year! Right, see if you think this is logically possible but it's 100% true. It was around 26 degrees where we went to last year and no clouds so full on sun. I had to stay on a sunlounger with one of those big umbrellas as low as possible to cover me all up. I had a towel covering my legs and feet at all times. I had one of those big rimmed hats to cover my entire face and had sunglasses on, as well as factor 50 suncream topped up every hour and when I got out of the pool. I burned the worst I've ever been on my back, shoulders, arms, legs, forehead (including hairline, very painful) and scalp...


    I know , and understand and I just don't get the concept of why bad things happen to good people , but yeah I got burned on my ankle on Tuesday as I was at a sports day having a picnic and it's sore .- I put like so much sun cream on but still it happened.
