Real Sunburn Leads to Leather SkinAugust 1, 2007 5:23 pm main, pictures, sun danger, sunburn
This is what happens when you repeatedly ignore warnings that you might be getting burnt–redness, pain, sun blisters, the inability of your skin to ever moisten itself. Leather skin is an understated disease, and this is the most disgusting case of leather skin I’ve ever seen.
The entire world’s supply of aloe could not help this lady out. I’m not sure which is more done- crispy bacon or her skin. If I had to choose between having the dryest elephant’s skin as my own for the rest of my life or touching that lady’s skin, I’d choose the elephant skin. I see that and I think of the scene in Christmas Vacation where they’re at Christmas dinner and they cut into the turkey. It emits puffs of smoke and hisses, because they burnt the hell out of it. This lady’s skin is so nasty, I don’t even think Uncle Eddy would eat it.
Save your skin. Use suntan lotion with an SPF of 15+. Boycott real sunburns and only practice Indian Sunburn!
A good Indian Sunburn is like a strike from a rattlesnake. Quick, painful, and definitely leaves a mark. Real sunburn, on the other hand, is not good. If you get real sunburned enough over the years your skin will look like this. And no one will touch you the rest of your life.
