OP, I am Irish and from Arizona USA, so nothing but sunburns my whole life, I have found that a good after burn cream is original Noxzema! Just put it right on your skin. It cools right away and helps it heal faster, yes you have to reapply but its amazing with every application. This is for burns that don't need hospitalization, but are still bad. Good luck!!
Ouchie!! FYL! Sunburns are the worst. You don't deserve it because you tried to take precautions against burning. I guess for now on you'll need a big floppy hat and long sleeves.
In Australia, our UV index is so high, even a tan will lead to cancer. Also, if OP burns with sunscreen on, 10-15 mins unprotected in the sun will not tan her, it will severely burn her. Some people, like myself, are incapable of tanning. We either burn, or the sunscreen works so nothing happens. If we burn, it turns into a tan for about a week or so and then peels off. Sucks. But no a tan is not a defence against the sun, it just shows your skin type is more tolerant to the sun.
Where did you apply the sunscreen? Your feet? I just can't imagine someone getting severely brunt with that much sunblock on. But sucks to be you, sunburn's a bitch! Use Aleo Vera.
It's weird, but I was expecting "hahah it's winter" comments. Also, does santa wear speedos there?
