Do you burn, peel and go pale; burn and tan; tan straight away; or something else?
I thought I was safe in the shade, but apparently wasn't, this is what happened on a lazy Sunday morning in Brisbane, Australia, and it fucking hurts:
The white line of my skin is my usual colour. A friend asked me what degree of burn I thought it was, and I'm not sure. It hasn't raised blisters (which I've had before, having the whiter than white skin that isn't suited to this climate), but it really, really hurts when moving my arms. I should know better than go without sunscreen!
