Summer is quickly coming to a close and a lot of us are getting ready to pack away our swimsuits, snorkels, boogie boards, and sunscreen.

Oh, and about that sunscreen

You gotta wear it or else you end up with some serious problems!

Trust me on this one. I’ve gotten two terrible sunburns in my life AND had allergic reactions to them and it is seriously terrible.

Ugh. I won’t make that mistake again.

And hopefully these folks won’t either.

Let’s take a look at some people who really paid the price for not lathering up before they spent some time in the sun.

1. This is a tragedy.

And it looks painful…

2. It looks kind of cool!

But I’m sure it doesn’t FEEL cool…

At least it’s symmetrical from pics

3. Your friend is right.

Just go with it! You might as well.

My friend told me that I look like a popsicle stick. from funny

4. This is epic.

Won’t make that mistake again, will you?

WCGW if I forget sunscreen from Whatcouldgowrong

5. You have some work to do.

And it’s not gonna be easy.

6. You blew it!

I’m sorry about that, buddy.

A buddy of mine seemed to think stick sun screen was a good idea. from funny

7. Didn’t go well at all.

You gave it your best shot.

tried evening out my tan from the other day, didn’t go so well from funny

8. That looks HORRIBLE.

Good look walking the next few days.

That’s why you shouldn’t wear jeans with holes on sunny days. from funny

9. Wow. WTF happened here?

Care to explain this one?

10. Doesn’t even look like the same person.

Are you sure that’s your foot, sir?

The difference between tanned and untanned from my leg to my foot. from mildlyinteresting

11. Hahahaha. Amazing.

This has to be my favorite.

12. All in the family.

That family that burns together…

My friends first time in the Florida sun. Apparently it was also their first time using spray on sunscreen. from funny

13. Won’t wear those out in the sun again.

Did you learn from this experience?

14. Might as well have some fun with it.

Laugh! While you cry…

Daughter’s sunburn looks like Patrick from spongebob from funny
