My son went to the Wallops open house today and enjoyed the show, he says the Blue Angels were spectacular and a special bonus to a great event that Wallops opened to the public today.
He was there early, knowing he would be out in the sun all day he grabbed a bottle of SPF50 sunscreen and covered his exposed skin.
After being out in the sun he noticed he was starting to burn even with the SPF50 sunscreen he'd applied so he checked to the bottle of sunscreen for the date, that's when he found out that he had grabbed a bottle the was 2 years old.
Who would think that it would go bad? He is sunburned pretty bad after spending the day out in the sun even though he thought he took precautions by applying liberal amounts of SPF50 sunscreen.
We view this as a learning experience and just thought I'd pass along the warning to you to check the date on your sunscreen and discard last years bottle.
There are people that would sue I'm sure .... hot coffee comes to mind.
So if you're going out in the sun for any prolonged time make sure to get new sunscreen especially if you have little-ones, don't trust that old bottle of sunscreen.
Enjoy the summer sun, it's not fun having a blistering sunburn.
