Lime Juice Can Cause Serious Sunburns

Thought this was worth sharing as I -- and I am sure many of you -- was unaware how dangerous lime juice could be to our pale skin.

If you're handling limes or lime juice while before/during lots of sun exposure, be very, very careful. You do not want to end up with 3rd degree burns like the girl in the link. Warning: the bottom of the article contains a graphic image. Not for the faint of heart.

Be sure to wash your skin and be vigilant about using sunscreen after handling limes.

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
