Do Not Make the Same Mistake I Did

Some girlfriends and I had traveled to the ocean for a quick two-day relaxation weekend.



Because our time there was so limited, I wanted to maximize my "time in the sun" so I may have skimped a little on the best sunscreen.


Fast forward to the next day, we were driving home when I realized I was really, really dealing with a bad case of sunburn.


It hurt me to even sit in the car. My lips were so dry, I was putting on chapstick every couple minutes and they stung so bad. I knew I had really overdone it!


I had to go into work the evening that we returned home.


At that time I was working at a bread factory where the temperatures reached over one hundred degrees.


I was in the factory when I started to overheat and I literally started to feel like I was floating above my body.


That last thing I remember was saying something about my "mommy" and then I must have blacked out.


The next thing I remember, I was in the break area with wet paper towels on my neck.


What did I learn from this experience?


Definitely limit my time in the sun, keep cool and always use organic sunscreen!
