32 People Who Had A Way Worse Summer Than You


Posted on

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to send us pics of their worst sunburns ever. Here are the hilarious and cringeworthy results.


5. This swollen face, thanks to some sun poisoning:

"I was taking medication that made me extra sensitive to the sun, and I actually got sun poisoning. My face swelled up like a balloon. Fairest of them all?"



11. This person who literally couldn't walk for a few weeks:

"Went to the Bahamas and wore SPF 50. Was only in the sun for an hour. I found out at the hospital that I'm hyper-photo-sensitive. The doctors thought I had been stung by a stingray, but it was just a bad burn. I was unable to walk for three weeks due to the swelling from my knees down."



13. This unlucky person and her really nice friend:

"I learned two lessons that day:

1. Never go outside

2. Nothing is as valuable as a friend who will spend an hour of their time rubbing aloe leaves on your ass."



17. This, holy crap:

"My entire chest was covered in blisters before this photo was taken. I wasn't outside for that long and had applied sunscreen more than once. My legs were about the same shade."



29. This woman who did NOT use a red marker to color her arm:

"My vacation to Cuba this year. Managed not to burn until the last day, and on the flight home I developed heatstroke from it. It took weeks to get rid of all the symptoms. ALWAYS PROTECT YOUR SKIN!"
