Sunburns HUUUURT!

So I went to a birthday party yesterday on the lake. I put sunscreen on, but It didn't seem to work so well....

My shoulders burn, but really, beside my face and right arm are all that are sunburnt.

It was a great day, so i'm not concerned, and I can deal with the pains, but still, owowowow!

I got my first mild sunburn of the year. I had a blast this weekend. Went to the city and snapped photos of the new World Trade Center. :)

Check to see if your sunblock has an expiry date. Some molecules in use in consumer products are unstable and just degrade over time, although I'd be surprised if sunblock did. Sunscreen usually contains PABA, a fairly complex molecule; block usually uses titanium dioxide, which is simple and stable. Still, you never know, the stuff might have expired and you need a new bottle. Usually I only expose my face to the air... the rest of me ain't so cute, though I'm getting better... and clothes have a pretty high blocking factor.

I'm actually on the large side, but I decided I would have more fun without the shirt. I think it may be that I didn't put it on thick enough. I remember thinking I put to much on the arm that isn't sunburned, and it's okay. Next time I'll glob it on.
