Five reasons to avoid sunburn

No one enjoys sunburn, but that doesn’t seem to stop huge amounts of Brits suffering with the condition at home and abroad every single year.

However, there are some genuinely good reasons why you should do your utmost to stay protected in the sun and we take a look at five of the most important below.

It hurts 

First and foremost sunburn is painful and can be incredibly uncomfortable. While you might enjoy sunning yourself on the weekend, having to go into work on Monday with sore and sensitive skin won’t be much fun. What’s more, severe cases can lead to blistering and huge amounts of dead skin peeling off, which is thoroughly unpleasant.


Not even Cheryl Cole could pull off the sunburn look without appearing slightly ridiculous. Walking around with a lobster red face or nose is simply embarrassing and you should do your best to avoid it.

It spoils you fun 

Suffering a bad case of sunburn is a sure-fire way to spoil your summer fun. The pain and discomfort can be a real struggle and you’ll be much less inclined to go outside and enjoy the rest of the nice weather.

Serious health risks

The best reason to avoid getting burnt is because it’s scientifically proven to be linked to skin cancer. This is one of the fastest growing diseases in the UK at the moment and staying safe in the sun will go a long way to protecting yourself against it.

Setting a bad example 

Children are most at risk of sunburn due to the delicacy of their skin and getting badly burnt as a youngster can dramatically increase a person’s chances of contracting skin cancer in later life. By avoiding sunburn yourself, you can set the right example for your kids and ensure they are aware of the need to be protected.
