WE ALL know the importance of wearing sunscreen, especially if you know you're going to be outside for a long time.
Forgetting to apply any can lead to pretty nasty burns, that's exactly what this woman discovered when she woke up from snoozing in the sun.
Beautician Sirin Murad, 25, was on holiday in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria, when she fell asleep in the sunshine, with no sunscreen on.
Sirin woke up from her 30-minute nap by the pool with a slightly sore, red face, but didn't think much of it and continued relaxing during her time off.

After discussing the matter with her family, Sirin decided to not to seek any medical attention as she didn't think it would get any worse.
But the following day Sirin's entire face began peeling leaving her covered in different patches of tanned and pink skin.
The beautician, 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.
