Summer is practically over now, how much damage did the sun do to your skin?

Unlike 2017, this year I got away more easily from the evil UV rays. Last year, I got an annoying sunburn on my legs for wearing shorts the entire summer, so I learned my lesson and never wore shorts outside this year even in the few days where temperatures reached 40-44C here in my city. As for my arms, my forearms got the usual pinkish hue one gets when they get a bit sunburned, but they ended up developing the colour of a tan, especially the closer you get to my elbow and upper arms. Back of the neck also got tanned.

Funny enough, my face got a bit of a pinkish hue a few times but it never developed into an actual sunburn, much less a tan.

So, to sum it up, forearms and back of the neck are a bit tanned while the rest of my body has remained pasty white. I don't mind my forearms and the back of my neck getting a tan because they're the parts of my body that get the most sun exposure during the summer, so if all they did was burn and become lobster coloured it'd suck.

So yeah, I got away with looking like a construction worker/farmer, which tbh has always been the only type of tan I can get. Last time I went to the beach was over a decade ago and got a bad sunburn on my back and chest and also got some pimples, so I never let my upper body get exposed to the the angry summer sun again.

What about you? And yes, I know it's not summer this time of the year in the southern hemisphere.

Funyn thing is... my brother used factor 50 too and yet got rather pink

Since I don't go to the beach I don't really put much sunscreen on during summer, and it's easier to find shadow in the big city, but when it's very hot the rays can still get to you, obviously.

None, my days of walking in the hot California sun are long over.

Thankfully I've never had sunburn, I'm slightly more tan than usual though I guess.

None, because I'm sensible.

Wearing trousers in 40C+ heat sounds brutal, is it so hard to apply sun cream on your legs or stay in the shade?

None.

If I'm not at Work (which is indoors), then I'm just back at home mostly. I don't really go out long enough to get sun burnt. I'm not a fan of the hot weather tbh. Glad it's a bit cooler now, aside from the cost of central heating.

When it's 40C+ even walking 2 minutes under the sun will probably be enough to fry your skin. I know I said there's a lot of shadow in the big city... but it's not like the place is full of shadow from lunch time to late afternoon.

Even with sunscreen you can burn. My brother can tell you that.

I managed to survive. But I never want to experience 40C+ again. Since then 25-30 celcius have seemed rather alright to me.

None. I hate warm weather and avoid the summer sun as much as possible. Fortunately that isn't difficult since I work indoors and it's only a short walk to get there.

I can handle the sun

I even went on holiday where a couple of the days were close to 40 Celsius
