A woman from the UK has shared how her face doubled in size after spending an hour in the sun.
Eva Jones took to TikTok to share her cautionary tale about the sun, revealing that she was left with severe blisters, a swollen face and heatstroke after sunbathing for just an hour.
“Tanning for an hour won’t do much,” Eva wrote in the video. The clip then showed how red her face was.
“Guys I’m laughing but it’s not actually funny,” she said.
The TikToker shared a second snap and wrote: “An update girlies, my face has swelled up.”
Eva’s post has since gone viral, attracting 3.2 million views, showing her face’s journey from going a pale color to bright red.
In another video, she clarified that the mishap happened last week in 20C weather, not during the recent UK heatwave.
Eva explained she went to the beach for an hour and didn’t wear enough sunscreen. She said there was a breeze so she didn’t think she would get badly burnt.
“I would not go out in weather like this when it’s like stupid degree and not put suncream on,” she said in the second clip.
“I should’ve still put suncream on enough when I went last week, that was my mistake.
“But, I’m not as stupid as what people think.”
Users warned Eva that the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays can cause skin damage even on an overcast day or with a cool breeze.
“Same happened to me and it was cloudy … gotta watch out for uv ray scale!,” One person wrote.
