Ouch... the Sunburn!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!  I know I enjoyed it spending time at my sister's house further down south the West Coast, but today I am unfortunately paying for the lapse of judgment on not using enough sunscreen.  I thought I did the right thing by applying sunscreen to my upper body before heading out for a day on the water in a boat, but the lower part of my body was overlooked.  I figured I was going to be sitting on a boat, who needs to worry about your legs, right?  Wrong!  So as I gingerly edged out of bed this morning and thought there were a million needles being stuck into my legs, my thoughts were drawn to the many brides I see make the same mistake.

I don't know about you, but I tend to feel healthier when I have a little color (I know, not the case, but I said "feel" not believe!).  And I try to warn brides not to lay out in the sun too close to their wedding day just in case of incidences like this one.  Sunburn can be extremely painful (not to mention not the most attractive) and who wants to walk down the aisle like a 90 year old lady?!  But many brides or bridesmaids decide a day frolicking on the beach and in the water is a great way to spend the day before the ceremony - and it is a lot of fun - but be sure to use a waterproof, sweat proof sunscreen and reapply it frequently.  It's also a good idea to use a higher SPF than you think you need.  Those who come to Florida for their destination wedding do not realize how strong the sun is here... and often times those of us who live here forget that too! 

If you do not want to risk the sunburn or the tan lines (especially if you are wearing a strapless dress!), there is the spray tan alternative.  It is very natural looking - if you go to a professional who knows what they are doing - and will last about 5-7 days.  Just remember, when you go on your honeymoon don't think you already have a natural base tan so you decide to go easy on the sunscreen otherwise you'll be the same shade of lobster as me when the spray tan fades!
