Sun and Sunburns

My absolute favorite thing about summer is being able to be outside.

However, I will be the first to admit that I can sometimes suck at putting on sunscreen. It always takes that first 4th of July sunburn to teach me my lesson every year. (This year it was technically the 9th of July but whatever.)

As I’m writing this my shoulders and my back and my thighs are burning and I have applied Aloe three times already. I know that there are a lot of home remedies for sunburns and that the best remedy is to just reapply sunscreen so you don’t end up with this problem in the first place, but I feel like there are almost too many to choose from.

I am lucky that I didn’t burn my face because my skin is already dry enough with the prescriptions I am on. I really don’t need it peeling in a couple weeks when I am trying to move and get a new job.

My favorite thing to do with a fresh sunburn is go to the movies. It’s cold and dark so it seems like a great environment for my new lobster looking skin.

This is just a little rant about my least favorite thing about summer. If you guys have any fool-proof sunburn remedies let me know!
