OK probably looking outside today in Bolton, Safe Sun is not on your agenda but rather than wait until our summer comes....and it will I am sure, I wanted to put together a little advice on how to enjoy the summer sun and avoid the BIG BURN.
This comes from recently being out and about in Bolton sat outside a coffee shop and enjoying the warm weather and I was sat quite close to a family who were also enjoying the sun. A teenage girl whose skin was very pale, was getting redder by the minute as I sat there.
I am quite lucky in that my skin tans easily and I very rarely burn however I too have to be careful or I can end up looking a little like Judith Charmers! I was becoming increasingly worried about this girl as I could see her skin going very red and knowing this is not something you can always see or feel yourself when it is happening, was trying to pluck up the courage to go over and mention it to her. Before I had chance to do this, she then tapped her mother on the arm and gestured to her, showing off her skin and its reddening, her mother then nodded and smiled in appreciation of this new found 'sunburn'!
So i carried on drinking my coffee and imagined how sore this poor girl will be later in the day, not to mention the on-going effects the sunburn could have on her sun.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the sun but I know you just have to be careful with different skin types and especially for babies and children. Those of you who know me, know that my husband David is a little follically challenged and he is obsessed (in a good way) by not letting his scalp burn and carries his factor 15 scalp spray around with him everywhere he goes (well actually its usually in my handbag!)
OK here are some tips to enjoy the sun without the pain
