Feeling the burn…..
Wear a loose shirt instead of going bear skinned.
Anyone over the age of six months should use a sunscreen daily. Even those who work inside are exposed to ultraviolet radiation for brief periods throughout the day, especially if they work near windows, which generally filter out UVB but not UVA rays.
Whoah.. they’ve got to be having a laugh. You have to wear sunscreen even if you are inside most of the day? FFS, how do you expect anyone to take you seriously if you say stuff like that.Posted 4 years agogrowingladMember
Rash tops….time and time again….only after 17:00 if the sun has died down a bit take it off and use a bit of Sun cream
Also, from 12:00 until 14:00, go and have a long lunch and perhaps a sleep.
I spent 10 years in Greece, other half is a bubble so learnt from the locals….most of the locals will have buggered off around lunch time and will come back later in the day.
I’m quite dark for an Anglo Saxon skin wise and tan well, but only early in the morning or late after noon, during the day, rash top and hat.Posted 4 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Currently on the island of Ibiza and having a fantastic time.
However – despite getting a reasonable base tan before we left the UK and liberally adopting factor 30 many times including ‘once a day’ and waterproof – both Riemann P20 and Piz Buin, all 3 of us are a bit pink – daughter being the worst. Bar head to toe clothing, what’s the best protection?Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
Deffo keep in the shade and wear clothing, loose fitting clothing.
You’ve gone pink, proper burn is only another hour or so away and that will ruin your hollibobs,
What’s a day in the shade when it keeps you from looking like a lobster?
Find something else to do, museums, galleries etc..Posted 4 years ago
