Woman has 'plastic' forehead after falling asleep in sun for 30 minutes

We hate to sound like an overbearing mother right now, but it's important to look after your skin when you're out in the sun. Check out the video below if you don't believe us:

As you can see, the woman in this story learned the hard way as she was left with what looked like a 'plastic' forehead after falling asleep on a beach for just 30 minutes.

Beautician Sirin Murad was enjoying her holiday in Bulgaria in June when a visit to Sunny Beach went awry.

The 25-year-old drifted off by a pool in the 21ºC weather without putting sunscreen on and woke up half an hour later.

Although her face was slightly sore and red after the nap, she didn't think too much of it and continued relaxing during her time off.

But the next day she realised she was paying the price – as well as an extremely painful and red face, Sirin's skin was so tight that when she furrowed her eyebrows it looked like plastic.

Rather than go to the nearest doctor, the holidaymaker chatted about the issue with her family and they decided to avoid getting medical attention as Sirin didn't think it could get much worse.

She was wrong.

The next day the beautician's entire face began peeling, leaving her covered in patches of tanned and pink skin.

Sirin, from London, said: "At first it really didn’t feel like anything – it just felt a bit sore when I put pressure on it.

"It really hurt the next day but I actually got some relief when it started peeling. It didn’t hurt and I felt much better.

"Weirdly, my skin is great now. It even feels better than before, almost like it’s renewed."

It has now been seven weeks since the incident, and Sirin's skin has cleared with only a few patches of discolouration on her cheeks.

That being said, she's sharing her mishap with others in order to raise awareness about staying safe while spending time in the sun.

As mentioned, this incident was caused by just 21ºC weather, whereas the UK reached record-breaking temperatures of up to 40ºC amid the recent heatwave.

She continued: "No matter how much you think that you’ll be fine or that your skin will not burn, always apply sunscreen. It’s definitely worth it.

“In my case, I genuinely forgot. I usually would do, but it just slipped my mind."
