Here are the jaw-dropping results. Luckily these people can laugh about it now, but sunburns are no joke! If anything, let this be a lesson that you should always wear sunscreen! 1. This completely unfiltered picture: buzzfeed.com It was even cloudy and cold.—laurac4c624a9a1 2. This Neapolitan ice cream: Warning This image is graphic Tap to reveal Click to reveal buzzfeed.com We were in Carolina Beach for a weekend, laying and drinking on a dock. Suns out, buns out, right? This was the end result.—dbest272 3. This inflated head: buzzfeed.com So the photo on the top-left is my face, pre-sunburn. The top-right is the second day after the burn.

This tanning mishap: buzzfeed.com —kaylai431f72382 5. These multi-colored armpits: buzzfeed.com I even reapplied SPF 50 three times! I think my armpits were a crowd favorite when I showed my friends.—kaylai431f72382 6. This peeling face: buzzfeed.com I went snowboarding in Oregon and didn't think to wear face protection. Also, putting a bandage on my burn blister was the dumbest thing I've ever done. It literally ripped my skin right off.—j4027d275a 7.
