    Default Tips on managing sunburn

    I usually don't burn easily at all, and I didn't believe everyone that told me I would burn easier when pregnant. Boy should I have listened- I got so burnt last weekend! I find any aloe in the fridge is great whilst it's sore, and 5-7 days later is when it generally starts to peel. I have been slathering the bio oil for my belly onto the sunburn and find so far the peeling has stayed at bay (8 days later), but sure it will come eventually.

    Default Tips on managing sunburn

    Ok I take it back... Definately will peel and might blister. As time goes in I'm becoming a nice shade of lobster and there are a few even darker spots on my upper back now.
    Kicking myself at how stupid it was not to just go and get creamed up and then go back out to car shop. Lesson learnt the hard way

    I know I burn easy and those parts of my skin were not covered BUT this level of hurt is really unexpected for the time I was actually in the sun. We were in show rooms for a lot of the time and made a conscious effort to stand in the shade where possible. DH is a tiny touch pink on his nose and cheeks and that's it.
