Just after people's tips for avoiding UV exposure - I've recently started having a fair bit of issues with it (just coming on spring now).
Yesterday, I had long sleeves on, jeans, a broad (5 inch brim) sunhat, sunniest, 50+SPF broad spectrum sunscreen on. I did spend a little bit of time outside middayish, but had to. There was a bit of wind, so did flip the brim of my hat up a bit - but again, sunscreen.
And I felt like an idiot, too, not that that changes anything, everyone e else wearing short sleeves, shorts, etc, it was about 30 degrees for Pete's sake. But... *sigh* That's not the point.
The point is, I am seriously feeling this crap. No 'butterfly' rash at all (until recently it just made me feel achy and sick a bit, headache, but was manageable, even though I'd started being good about wearing sunscreen hat, and sunnies in winter, too.
But coming spring and I am dreading summer. Yesterday has left me flushed in the face, on the neck and upper chest where my shirt didn't cover, my wrists a bit, too. It BURNS, too, like a serous sunburn. But there's no way it was a sunburn, last year I spent all day out, sunscreen once or twice throughout the day, no hate, heck of a lot more exposed, no burn at all.
I have things I have to do outside. I have no choice. And this temp, the 30 degrees, is nothing, last Christmas we were 46.
So as much as shade, and staying in where possible, or limiting to early morning/late evening when I can, what else can I do?
This is killing me, though, I LIKE it outside. I hate this crap 😢😬😤😵😞😩😭🙅😫.....
