50 Times People Didn’t Realize How Useful Sunscreen Could Be

Sunscreen is very useful.

Not only is it necessary to protect your skin in the long term from cancer but it is also the best way to ensure that you don’t get sunburnt. Now I know that a lot of people like getting tan and I won’t say that there is anything wrong with that but not everyone’s skin can handle the sun for a long time. I mean even if I wanted to get tan, I would probably get red like a tomato because that is just how my skin is.


I am also aware that some people just don’t like the feel of sunscreen on their body but what they don’t realize is that being a tiny bit uncomfortable is better than your skin being burned to a crisp. And the following are just some pictures that will help me prove that exact thing. These are what are known as tanning fails. Some of these people wanted to tan but didn’t realize their skin was so sensitive while others just didn’t put their sunscreen on their whole body.

Some of these are hilarious while others look to be incredibly painful.

#25 Another person with awful tan lines because of a hat.

I have had experience with sunburn myself which I am not proud to admit but it happens to all of us. I mean I did have sunscreen on but it wasn’t the strongest and so my whole face and arms were bright red and even got blisters. Not only was it incredibly painful but the blisters also took a while to completely heal which was not a fun experience in any way. This is why a good sunblock is necessary whenever you are going out in the sun.

#26 When you don’t wear your watch.

#42 Only putting sunscreen on your tattoo is not the way to go.

#43 Ripped jeans are not great for when you go under the sun.

#44 I guess he should have done more than just putting on a hat.


#45 Well, this does not look like a proper application.

#46 I can feel the pain even through the screen.

#47 His back looks like a painting in the making.


#48 What even happened here?

#49 We are just not even going to mention the hair.

#50 I have learned that spraying on sunblock is not the best.
