25 Dreadfully Bad Sunburns

If you’ve ever forgotten to wear sunscreen while visiting the pool or beach, you’ve probably been the victim of an unpleasant sunburn. We’ve all been there. And of course, with the popular push for more natural products these days, people are giving coconut oil a try.

A word to the wise: do not use coconut oil. It will not offer any protection against UV rays. In fact, you can end up with the worst sunburn of your life.

No, the best course of action is to get sunscreen with adequate UV protection. Your skin will thank you!

Sun damage is problematic for more than one reason. When you don’t use sunscreen, your risk of skin cancer increases. Depending on the severity of your sunburn, you may even need to go to the hospital – people have received second-degree sunburns before!

Do you want to know the most incredible thing? If you remember your elementary school science classes, you know that the sun is 92.96 million miles from Earth. However, it can still wreak havoc on our skin and cause pain. So, take my word and slap another layer of sunscreen.

1. That looks too painful to bear

I’m not sure why this guy’s bare ass is out, but that’s not what attracts the eye. You can’t help but look at that sunburn, which must be absolute agony.

2. Their expressions say it all

This couple probably expected to enjoy a sunny day at the pool or beach, but things got a little too sunny. Now, your expressions are of pure repentance.

3. Well, we know what her bathing suit looked like

It’s amazing how much detail a sunburn can capture even though the sun is so far away. Just look at this woman’s elegant swimsuit tie – or her fingerprint, at least.

4. Think of it as a temporary tattoo

The most obvious assumption is that this guy fell asleep in the sun with one hand on his chest. The result was a painful, strange-looking sunburn.
