Sunburn is caused by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun.
A risk factor is something that increases your chance of getting a disease or condition. Your risk of sunburn increases with:
Exposure to the sun
THIS IS YOU —–> Light skin color
Certain medications that may increase your sensitivity to the sun, such as antibiotics or oral contraceptives
Geographical location: highest incidence in southern United States
I REFUSE TO LIST THESE FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU WILL PANIC, YOUR VOICE LEVEL WILL GET ALL HIGH, TEKKA AND MAKI’S EARS WILL GO BACK AND YOU WILL START TO IDENTIFY WITH EVERY SINGLE ONE.
To prevent sunburn, you must shield your skin from the sun’s rays.
Avoid strong, direct sunlight.
– Plan outdoor activities early or late in the day to avoid peak sunlight hours between 10 AM-4 PM.
– Choose a sunscreen, sunblock, or special sunblock clothes with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15 that filters out both UVA and UVB rays.
– Apply sunscreen liberally, thoroughly, and frequently to all exposed skin, including the lips.
– Wear protective, tightly woven clothing, as well as a broad-rimmed hat and sunglasses.
Keep in mind that water is not a good filter and you can become sunburned while swimming or snorkeling. YOU CAN ALSO BECOME SUNBURNED during the the winter AND ON CLOUDY OR FOGGY DAYS.
WHO KNEW??? Who knew you can also get sunburnt if you’re not careful where a man puts his fingers. Heh. Use THAT one on your phone sex line!
Baskin Robbins is the shit.
See you at St. Francis tomorrow morning for brunch. I hear you can get all the holy water you can drink for free.
That little remark about Republicans had better not mean you hate ALL republicans… *raises an eyebrow and crosses my arms*
