These funny pictures show why you should always use sunscreen

Sunscreen is an ally that we should all be using all the time to prevent skin damage and early aging, but if these reasons don’t seem enough to remind you how necessary it is, this selection of funny sunburns just might do the trick.

ARROW

CORRIEREOBJECTS

This guy was doing cosplay and waiting in line to get inside of a convention for hours with no sunscreen on him, and the result was a more permanent costume.

MATCHING

MYPRIKOL

If you have a hard time noticing how much impact the sun has on your skin, take a look at this guy who is wearing invisible socks for a long time now.

HAPPY

BAOMOI

There is nothing that can make you as unhappy as forgetting to put sunscreen when you have a happy note on your forehead that will stay there for a long time.

CEREAL

CORRIEREOBJECTS

Probably when this girl decided to have breakfast on the backyard to take advantage of the sun didn’t realize that the bowl and spoon would end up tattoed on her legs.

TOP

IMGUR

There are some really cool sports bras available now that are much cooler than the old school models, but they can be very risky if you plan to stay all day in the sun.

POPSICLE

POROSENKA

Who doesn’t love a popsicle on a hot summer’s day? We all do, but looking like one after a day out not wearing any sunscreen is not as fun.

GINGER GONE RED

REDDIT

This guy decided to get a sunburn to match his natural hair color but took it too far. And by the way, the green pants create a whole Christmas spirit, don’t you think?

MAKING IT EVEN

PIXMAFIA

One of the most complicated things, when you get a tan, is trying to match it to the rest of your body. Do you think this guy is ever going to get a nice, even tone?

PRANKED

THECHIVE

If you are going to spend a day at the beach with your friends, make sure they don’t like pranks as much as this guy’s crew apparently do, or you might end up like this.

KNEES

PUROSARCASMO

If you are wearing jeans, you probably don’t even think about putting some SPF on your legs but beware if you used ripped ones or you might end up with two clown noses on your knees.

ALL THE COLORS

ELKILOMBONEWS

If we thought that matching two skin tones after a bad suntan was tricky enough, imagine having three different skin tones in your leg. You might as well own it.

YOGA PANTS

CLIPMASS

This poor girl overlooked the fact that all of the little holes in her yoga pants would create a pattern if she had a suntan. That one will be hard to explain with shorts.
