    I don't even think it's that hot to be honest:confused:

    Maybe that's because I go the gym everyday and sweat like crazy so I'm used to it..

    Plus it was actually raining yesterday...

    It's weird to see you all considering 25-30 temperatures as "melting" hot.

    I managed to fall asleep earlier today around noontime for a few hours when the sun was out and then realised that I am sunburnt on the face, arms, chest and legs. Forgot to wear sunscreen too.

    It feels itchy atm and can definitely see the sunburnt skin and the difference with the non-sunburnt skin.

    I don't think I've ever been sunburnt before as my skin is pretty good at handling sunlight.

    Does anyone know how long it will take to completely heal ? Does it just gradually go or peel off ? Does it go back to completely normal ?

    I've learnt my lesson and will be extra careful in the future, but honestly, does this mean I'm likely to get skin cancer in the future ?

    I went to Italy in Easter and it was hotter, but I have some friends in BORDEAUX at the moment and it's crept into the 40s.

    Try taking a cool shower. You should put on some aloe vera gel or moisturiser on to try and minimise peeling, I like to put my body lotion in the fridge so when I apply it it's nice and cooling. You've exposed your skin cells to radiation and so there is an increased risk of skin cancer so just make sure you're safe in the future.

    It'd also be worth mentioning that their chance of obtaining skin cancer in the foreseeable future isn't determined by past Sunburns. Unless we're talking days/weeks.

    How do you mean ?

    As in the fact that I've had it this once increases my chances substantially ?

    Really? I always heard that skin cancer risk increases if you were sunburnt severely during your childhood and adolescence?
