Woman Shares Horrific Sunburn After Just One Hour In UK Sun

A woman shared her horrific sunburn after just one hour in the UK sun. Watch below:

So yeah, it's pretty f**king hot at the moment, init.

After the Met Office's red heat warning for England between Monday (18 July) and Tuesday (19 July), large parts of England have hit the high 30s, with the possibility of 40C in some places.

Understandably so, TikToker Eva Jones thought to have a lie down in the sun to get a bit of tan.

However, as shown in the clip - captioned 'British weather' - above, after just 60 minutes, she was left with painful blisters and a swollen face.

She begins sharing images of her face, in which the blisters get progressively worse.

Eva later confirmed that she suffered from heatstroke.

Many in the comments were asking if she put on sunscreen before heading out.

At the time of writing, it appears that Eva didn't respond to any of those questions.

One user commented: "Coming from a ginger. If you don’t have suncream on, only go out for half an hour max, I’ve also learnt the hard way."

"I was supposed to go to the beach for loads of hours tomorrow but now I've seen this," another added.

While a third person said: "Your face on one of the pictures was so red it lit my room up with a red glow (laughing emoji x2) love it."

A fourth wrote: "This has happened to me too been 2 years skin hasn’t recovered proper."

Hopefully this won't be the case and she gets well soon.

Meanwhile, as the heatwave is in full force, believe it or not, Brits have been urged to avoid alcohol during the blistering heat.

Considering that sipping on an ice-cold bev is probably the most British way of responding to a heatwave, some experts have urged against it.

As many of us will be aware of, doctors usually advise us to keep hydrated as the temperature goes up.

When it comes to excessive drinking, alcohol is classed as a diuretic - meaning it makes you pee more.

And when you pee more, you become more dehydrated.

Alcohol advice site Drinkaware explains: "Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it encourages the kidneys to lose extra fluid.

"That is why you tend to go the toilet to urinate (pee) much more when you drink alcohol. Alcohol also makes you sweat more.

"The combination of sweating more in the heat, and going to the toilet more, means you lose more fluid than you take in and become dehydrated unless you replace that lost fluid by drinking water."
