I have always loved going to the beach since I was a little kid.
- However, as of recently I have been forgetting to bring my sunscreen.
The last three times I said the beach I forgot my sunscreen when I went. Now luckily, I didn’t forget it entirely because I’d be heading out the door and remember that I forgot to put it in my bag and I would run back and grab it. This time though I wasn’t so lucky and I completely forgot my sunscreen. In my naive mind, I for some reason thought that this wouldn’t be too much of an issue. However, I will soon find out but I was very, very, wrong. I spent the whole day at the beach doing what I normally do, swimming in the ocean, sunbathing, and playing a little bit of beach volleyball. I had noticed that my skin was starting to burn and I realized that I had a sunburn. Unfortunately I didn’t realize how bad my sunburn was until after I went home that afternoon. It was bad, and very uncomfortable. The only thing that brought me relief apart from my soothing aloe vera gel was my air conditioning system. My air conditioning system played a very important role in my comfort. In fact with my AC system I don’t know if I would have been able to get through my sunburn without pain. The cool air was like magic to my hot burned skin. One thing is for sure, I’m never going without sunscreen again. Even if I have to go back home or buy some at a local store.
