Show Us Your Most Ridiculous Sunburn

Let us sympathize with your poor skin.

Posted on

Sunshine is a wonderful gift to us from Mother Nature.

But if you aren't careful, the sun can also wreck you.

Whoever believes the old saying that "you can't have too much of a good thing" apparently doesn't know how the sun works.

Maybe you forgot to apply sunscreen to a certain part of your body.

Or you accidentally drifted off into a nice long nap while lying out in the sun.

Perhaps you didn't realize that you still need to rub in spray sunscreen.

Or the person who got your back really shouldn't have been trusted.

So, show us all your ridiculous, strangely-shaped, unfortunate sunburns.

Obviously we're not advocating sun damage here. You should always wear sunscreen whenever you're in the sun — and reapply at least every two hours and after you swim or sweat.

But if you — like so many of us — slipped up once or twice and ended up with a particularly memorable burn, feel free to share it with us. Even if it wasn't funny at the time, it's a great reminder of why you should always wear sunscreen and watch your sun exposure in the future.

Submit your photo using the DropBox below, and include some details about how you got it.

Your cautionary tale might be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Health post.
