Despite ‘repeatedly applying’ factor 30 Malibu suncream, a mother is afraid to go out in the sun after being hospitalized with severe sunburn.
During the UK heatwave, Danielle Fitzsimons, 31, was left in ‘unbearable’ agony after a day at the beach with her children.
Her back was covered in pus-filled blisters, and doctors said she was “as near to third-degree burns as sunburn gets.”
However, according to a Malibu spokesman, the majority of the population is ignorant of how often they need to reapply suncream to be protected in hot weather.
On Saturday, the mother-of-two purchased SPF 30 Malibu Lotion Spray for the first time in preparation for a day at Bumcrama Beach in Northern Ireland with her father Stephan, 54, and daughters Khloe, 9, and Hayleigh, 8.
She was placed on gas and air and patched up in hospital two days later, and she claims she has been returning ‘nearly every day since.’
‘I’m covered with hundreds of tiny blisters, and my skin is all ripped off,’ she added. I’m fortunate if I get more than an hour of sleep each night since the agony is unbearable.
‘I can’t sleep, can’t brush my hair, can’t do anything.’ Because the pain is so severe, I’m feeling sick. It’s too much to endure.
‘I don’t understand why everyone else seemed to be OK when I was the only one who was hurt.’
‘It’s frightened me to go out,’ Danielle, from Newtownstewart, County Tyrone, said. I can’t go outside at all since the agony makes me totally weak if the sun hits my back, even through the bandage.

‘When your skin is injured, you start to worry about skin cancer, and this has frightened me away from going out in the sun altogether, to be honest, since I can’t believe how severely I’ve been burnt.’
‘Whenever I attempt to lay down, the blisters burst and flow down my back and shoulders.’
Danielle has filed a complaint with Malibu, claiming that she has used the cream many times and that it does not usually cause her to burn.
‘My father was with us, and he had the parasol up, and we were standing in the water around knee-deep, with the kids paddling,’ she said. I wasn’t exactly soaking up the rays.
‘I used the cream before I left the home, then when I arrived, and then again while I was there.’ I believe that’s a sufficient number of times to use it.’
More about the weather
Malibu, a London-based business, claims to follow and comply with all UK and European laws, with products undergoing “rigorous testing to achieve their SPF claim.”
‘When a sun protection cream or lotion is tested, a certain quantity is put to a specific region of skin,’ they said.
‘The skin is exposed to artificial sunshine for a specific length of time, and the SPF is determined by how the skin reacts.
‘Without suncare, a typical fair-skinned individual would burn in 10 minutes.’ They can stay in the sun for 30 times longer if they wear SPF30 than if they don’t (no matter how many times its applied). This is the equivalent of 300 minutes, or five hours.

‘An ideal application for an average physique in a swimsuit is two to three tablespoons of lotion. (The depression is one tablespoon if you dip your hand upside down.)
‘This is a lot of lotion, and our issue is that most people are unaware of how much protection they need to apply in order to achieve their SPF coverage.’ They won’t receive the SPF they anticipate if they don’t apply enough sunscreen.
‘Our company’s concept is that suncare should be accessible to everyone.’ We also attempt to teach individuals about the importance of application.’
