Title. I've never experienced sunburn, but my mother and sister did and they often turn red, sometimes peeling.

Even in this heatwave I feel NOTHING.

How does it feel like to experience sunburn? The closest thing I experienced to a sunburn was when I was on a beach a few years back; I forgot to apply sun lotion, and all I felt was a small but short-lived sting on my skin which turned golden brown three hours later.

My sister was with me too and also forgot to apply sun lotion. She complained about her skin on that day, and turned red.

I'm darker than my sister who seems to be Fitzpatrick II. My mother is perhaps a Fitzpatrick II, and my father is perhaps an IV or even V.

I self-identify as Fitzpatrick III or IV.

Starts to itch and feel irritated and stings when you touch it but not the whole world

Sometimes horrendous. Can make you feel extremely sick, the area can't be in contact with anything. Legit nothing outside of serious injury as bad as a bad sunburn

During that time on the beach I felt a small, short-lived but sharp sting, but no itchiness or irritation. No peeling, reddening or blistering after that.

Hurts like a bitch when you touch it, skin starts peeling and you start feeling itchy after some days. It's a nuisance which is why I use sunscreen whenever I leave the house.

What's your Fitzpatrick type?
I've never experienced anything like that, but maybe it's because I always wear sun cream.
But again that time I "burned" I hardly felt anything:

I'm still very afraid I might one day experience sunburn, despite going to places where the UV index was over 10 and feeling nothing (unlike mum who peeled).

I do this all the time, SPF 50+ as well. That time I went on the beach on a hot day was an exception as we were in a rush.

How would you classify this experience?

I'd classify it as a bad experience obviously. I'm not a fan of going to hot places like beaches either so I tend to avoid them whenever possible.

Try tanning outside for hours in high UV and you will feel it eventually

I tried that when I went to the Southeastern US and the Mediterranean walking about and enjoying myself, nothing happened. :lul:

I came back home with the skin colour of a lightskin.

I'm indifferent to beaches.
People here made the most of the heatwave to try and get a tan and I saw people with orange bubbles on their shoulders

This guy would talk to his mom and sister about their sex lives but can’t ask them what a sunburn feels like @looksmaxxer234 @gamma @vanilla
I'll go ask them today
