Before when i was a kid, I don't really care about it. I just enjoy the water, swimming with my cousins and play all day in the water. But now that I am 23, I really hate to go to beaches if my friends will invite me to swim even if the sun is very high. I really can't take it because for sure, I will be sun burn. I am not afraid of getting dark, it is just I don't want the feeling of the skin peeling and all that.

i used to get that a lot.. sun burned skin.. when i was younger. i would really enjoy the water to its full extent. I hate to swim and not be able to see my hands and feet all soaked. haha it is really wonderful for me :D now that i am a bit older.. i do not get that a lot now.. i am more cautious and conscious of what i will look like. i get sun burned really easily and i would look like someone fresh from oven! haha

I'm 21 and I love going to the beach. In fact I don't like swimming if the sun is hiding behind the clouds. It makes the atmosphere feel gloomy and the water may start to get cold faster than normal. Plus I actually do like to site on the rocks and dry out in the sun when I start to feel chilly. Then I dive back into the water lol.

When I was still young, I really liked the beach. I frequently went there with my friends and schoolmates. But now that I am a grown up, I just don't like beaches anymore. I think they are dirty especially in the beaches nearby our house now that really look messy.

I would prefer swimming in the evenings. So there is no chance of getting sunburn then. In India it is very hot on sunny days and it is almost impossible to swim in beaches in the afternoon. It is bad for the skin too cos of intense solar radiation here.

first off,i wouldn't get out in the sun without having some kind of sun lotion for me to put on b4 i go.Secondly,i don't burn that easy. But,if i did,i'd at least put some suntan lotion on before i went out into the sun.
