It’s often enjoyable to stay outdoors for meet-ups and games but the resulting pinching pain from sunburns are definitely not fun! Britons witnessed one of the hottest day of the year this July and loaded the social media with amusing pictures of their terrible sunburns.
As temperature surpassed 33’C, Britons let their skin get ‘lobster red’ and made fun of it on Twitter.
Twitter was chock-full of sunburned chests, wrists and sore feet as the hottest day drew close to an end. ‘Sunburn’ and ‘heatwave’ was trending for hours as social media was stormed with funny pictures of people gloating about their freckles.
The temperature was noted to be as high as 35’C and the Britons decided to come out of their stuffy houses and offices to get some fresh air. However, those weren’t quite lucky who forgot to put on their sunscreens.
People, who forgot to take the necessary precautions from the scorching waves of Sun, got tan lines and hurtful red skin.
Visiting beaches and parks seemed like a good idea at the time but the heatwave made them look like a tub of Neapolitan ice-cream. The social media users made the best out of this situation too and shared their selfies with amusing captions. They then compared their sunburns to lobsters, sweets and desserts.
Hannah certainly regretted being a victim to the severe heatwave but she gave a chance to the Tweeters to laugh their hearts out. She even compared herself to chewy pink, Squashies!
Molly, another victim of sunburn, certainly felt bad about her choice of wearing a racer.
Although, these sunburn selfies made people laugh but it’s a serious matter as getting sunburns several times can increase the risk of melanoma.
According to UK Cancer Research Center, people who have got several sunburns are more likely to catch melanoma than those who have not. So it’s better to take necessary precautions rather than only taking it as a matter of joke.
Wearing hats, sunglasses and using sun screens can surely help, when the sun is burning too hot. It can reduce the risks of getting sunburns. It’s wrongly considered that only children have to keep themselves from sunburns, it’s equally dangerous for older people as well.
Good news for these poor fellas, weather experts have predicted that soon thunderstorms and rain will change the weather of Britain.
Next time don’t forget your sunscreens folks!
