#BEDM Day 8: Wear Sunscreen
A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
I’m not even kidding with my title. That is my actual advice for today. I’ve been quite badly sunburned three times in my life. The first was on holiday when I was younger and I fell asleep on a lilo on a swimming pool and the sunlight reflecting off the water contrived to char the skin on my shoulders almost down to the bone. That was fun.
The other two times I was an adult and I was in England. Both times I burned my face. Once I had big sunglasses on so I got panda-eye sunburn, which was just peachy. On one of the times it was so bad I had to have a day off work as my skin was leeching up Sudocrem like water being poured on hot sand and my skin was coming off in sheets. Ask @loosemorals and @superlative, they’ll tell you the story. And then they’ll tell you the story about how I did exactly the same thing a second time, like the twat that I am.
So yeah, be smart, don’t get panda eyes or have the skin on your face slough off like that of a snake. Wear sunscreen.
