Are pregnant women more likely to burn in the sun? I never usually burn but yesterday I was in the garden for a hour and now im bright red!! My face is the worst and I have sunglasses marks which are really embarrassing but everything down to my hands are now pink! looks like I'll be sharing my son's factor 50 for a while!
Any tips on reducing redness (especially on the face) would be greatly appreciated!! Xx

Hi Brunette Mummy, your skin is more sensitive whilst you're pregnant so yes you will be more responsive to the sun. Vinegar will soothe sunburn (though you smell like fish & chips!!!) & sudocrem is another aid. If you have any bronzing powder it'll help reduce the 'glowing red'.

Thanks, I think ill try the sudocrem as I don't fancy smelling like vinegar lol can't believe I've burnt I was only out for an hour. I will try the bronzer also any things got to be better than bright red!! Xx
