A gardener in Scotland found out the hard way what happens when you don’t wear sunscreen.
The Daily Mail reported that gardener Greg Binnie worked for seven hours in the sun on a Saturday without any sunscreen on. The following night, his shoulders started blistering horribly, and he realized he’d gotten second degree burns on his shoulders!
“I first realised the severity of it on the Sunday night when I got home from work, as it had blistered up massively. The areas worst affected are my neck and shoulders and as I am incredibly fair skinned I do find myself quite sensitive to the sun. It is incredibly painful, especially for basic things such as moving my arms and lying down… My warning to others would be don’t be naive. I only just got back from a month in Australia and used sun cream every day. Because I am now back in Scotland I just assumed I’d be fine without as the weather in Scotland isn’t usually too great.”
