Most of the pics in the slideshow look fake, or at least intentional.

CSB:  In the early eighties I went on spring break with some other dudes.   Back then we were all pretty scared of the ghey, so when I asked one of them to help put sunscreen my back I got a pretty lame attempt.  You could still see the guys handprint 3 years later.

A while back I was talking to a group of my coworkers and for some reason made a reference to peeling from a sunburn. Two of the group were black, one was a very dark-complexioned Latina, another, an olive-complexioned Italian-American, and the last a very dark Asian-American. They all just stared uncomprehendingly at me and I realized none of them had probably ever had such an experience.

I've been in a similar situation. You have to explain that it's just like getting burned by the stove, a hot clothes iron, etc. except it covers a much larger area of skin. The skin gets red, hurts like any burn would, then it bubbles up and peels off.

It was just sort of strange, to realize an experience I took for granted others would know about, is not in fact universal. Even though I live in Florida and haven't allowed myself to get sunburned in over twenty years, the memory of getting burned and peeling is still pretty vivid.

Redhead living in the south.

SunBum SPF 70 and Shiseido SPF 50. I wear both daily. If I'm out in the field all day I wear either arm sleeves + hat or other SPF long sleeved clothing as a physical barrier to the sun. For in the water, a lot of rashguards provide SPF 50 protection and I have some rad black shorts which go down nearly to my knees which do as well. Check out a surf shop if you have one near you. You will probably also find some neat hats in Jamaica. The arm sleeves that Im referring to are ones that cyclists use. Can find them in higher outdoor stores like EMS which also carry lines of SPF rated apparel. Its very popular with fisherman but I can't remember the brand. I bet someone on Fark will.

With all the different products out there, avoiding burns is possible.

Good for you. Most people don't take this stuff seriously. It's also a good idea have your vitamin D status taken regularly and supplement if necessary. I did such a good job of covering myself from the sun that my vitamin D levels became way too low.

Naturally dark-skinned people can get sunburned, if they really overdue their exposure. It just doesn't happen as frequently as it does for lighter-complexioned folks.

Indeed, you can't leave a Brit out in the sun for too long. Just let them be, the sun has sterilizing properties.

Sun is definitely still getting through and I sort of prefer it that way. You certainly have a point. I don't want to take Vit D supplements when 15 min outside will do the trick. My parents have very low levels living in upstate NY. Dad had none measurable and he had to go on huge dosage of the vitamin. On the flipside, Ive lived in FL for nearly a year and I'm already getting new freckles and moles so I worry about skin cancer and damage. I started to naturally tan/freckle but looked strange. Back to pasty white I go which it is returning to. Im super careful about the sun. I also don't want to end up looking like my aunt who has lived here for 20 years with obvious sun damage.

Its also fun to buy things called SunBum...smells wonderful and I normally don't go for scented anything. They also make an amazing lip balm that doesn't taste like crap like most sunscreen lip balms. Neutrogena changed their sunscreens which now no longer work on me. Some of them don't soak in which sort of disturbs me. It just sits there on my skin.

Don't forget to put it on the tops of your feet!

Follow my logic:

Gingers have no souls.
Vampires have no souls.
Therefore, Gingers are vampires.
Most Gingers are Brits
Therefore, most Brits have recessive Ginger genes.
Therefore, most Brits are part vampire.
Therefore, you shouldn't leave your Brits out in the sun.

I'm pretty sure if I had, I'd also have been in the hospital. Can't believe those guys weren't howling in pain.

When I was in high school, I went to a local early summer festival wearing a tank top and didn't think to wear sunblock. I got BLISTERS on both shoulders, and had to basically wear the same shirt for several days because everything else I had would rub on them. And I still had classes so I had to go to school like that...

A few years ago I was doing some field work with an Asian lab assistant on his first field trip.  When we arrived at the field site, all the white postdocs put on sunscreen, long sleeve shirts, and hats.  He laughed at the inferior, melanin challenged people and proceeded to work in just his t-shirt.  The next day he showed up to work with his first sunburn.  It was hilarious.

TastyEloi: WordyGrrl: TastyEloi: A while back I was talking to a group of my coworkers and for some reason made a reference to peeling from a sunburn. Two of the group were black, one was a very dark-complexioned Latina, another, an olive-complexioned Italian-American, and the last a very dark Asian-American.

As a Ginger whose BFF is hispanic I know all about trying to explain burning to people that dont burn.
