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.
