When I was a kid, I tanned. Now, I sunburn and then tan. It was a gradual transition but it never really clicked. I do apply sunscreen everyday but I’m lax when it comes to spending lots of time in the sun. My friends and I only went to the beach for a few hours and I am pretty badly sunburnt. One shoulder and the backs of my legs are ok, I just should have reapplied (but it was only a few hours! Grrr…). But my bather singlet top bunched up and exposed skin that had no sunscreen. I have never had a burn so bad…I’ve been branded.
