A few years ago my brother feel asleep on a sun lounger, he had planned on a 20min nap in the sun, and had put a low factor sunscreen on…. 2 hours later he woke up!! Immediately he knew he had spent too much time in the sun as his skin had that lobster red glow, little did he know how much trouble he was in. By later that evening he had blisters all over his forehead and was in severe pain. He didn’t mean to get sunburn, he had taken precautions, he simply hadn’t realised just how tired he was and a 20 minute nap turned into 2hours in midday sun! We all know the dangers of the sun and how important sunscreen is, but we are human and all make mistakes. Sometimes we get caught no matter how careful we are.
Even if you have protection on, there is always the possibility of spending longer in the sun than planned, although you may not exactly suffer from sunburn, there may be slight redness and inflammation in the skin none the less.
Here are 5 things you need to do if you find you have spent too much time in the sun.
