Overdosing on Light
So there I was at 15 years old, ready to go on a beach trip with my group of friends from church.
I remember my mother telling me, don’t forget to put this on, handing me a bottle of 65 SPF waterproof sunscreen. I got into the bus after fellowshipping with the group.
We arrived at around eight-thirty in the morning. I remembered what my mother told me yet I didn’t put any sunscreen on, and I chose to wear a white t-shirt.
Let me tell you that was a big mistake!
The thought never crossed my mind that I have not been in the sun for at least 8 months, and was white as snow.
After about 8 hours of having fun at the beach, eating burritos, and just relaxing in the sun.
We got back into the bus and as soon as I sat down I noticed the burning sensation.
One of the cute girls noticed I was really red, and let me view in her mirror.
Wow! I was really, really red! Like lobster red.
I got home and immediately put Aloe Vera gel, on my back, and told my mother regretfully that I had a bad Sunburn
That night I couldn’t move in my bed, the pain was unbearable.Sun AllergyHuman SkinUV IndexUV Rays
