You’d think after Kelly Osbourne’s recent health scare, she would be extra-careful these days. But on Wednesday, the E! Fashion Police co-host, 28, shared a photo of a major health no-no on Twitter: a terrible sunburn. “I’m smart!” she sarcastically Tweeted, along with the pic of her bright red back and intense tan lines.

We feel for her, but as any good PEOPLE StyleWatch reader knows, the first step to having fun in the sun is protecting yourself from it. If you’re already in the summer mindset, it’s time to get prepared now — and these three products have you covered.

For Face: Besides protecting your mug with a cute summer hat, try Clarins SPF 30 Face Sun Screen. It’s not greasy and smells delicious. The brand also makes a special lotion for your eyes, which combats wrinkles and won’t cause irritation.

For Body: Toss this cute Yes to Cucumbers SPF stick in your everyday bag — it won’t take up much real estate and has the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of approval.

For your bigger vacation bag, Neutrogena’s new beach defense line is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and comes in an SPF 85. It’s got your back (but get a cute guy to get your back too — just for fun).

For Overexposure: And if you find yourself in the same painful boat as Kelly (tsk!), natural remedies work best. We swear by aloe vera, shaving cream (cools the skin for immediate relief) and Vitamin E as a triple threat that takes the sting out fast.

Tell us: What’s your favorite safe sun product?

Ya, sunburn, tiny waist, whatever, it’s not going to help… you’re still a bimbo. Your mother is even worse. You and your family are a waste of flesh and blood.

A sunburn unaquires her & her mom on the 20 most undesirable thumbs down list luck. Pouring vinegar on it for sympathy perused, perhaps? Sunbeams recall regally remitting oneself from the sun ; unassuming the identifiable jellybean identifiable instagram.

I really like this family. I feel they are real not like all the other fake celebs out there. How to prevent a sunburn put on a protective cute shirt and hat.

i had sunburn worse than that before after going to the beach. that sucks bad. i had to sleep in a chair sitting backwards.then it all starts blistering and pussing up. and when you put the medicine on it feels like a steak knive going through your back. but when it starts peeling thats pretty cool.

panama jack coco butter suntan lotion feels awesome on sunburn. especially if you put it in the icebox for a while before.

That sunburn looks wicked and so painful. Pure aloe vera gel takes the burn away and relieves a lot of the pain. What was she thinking? This ought to be a reminder to all of us to protect ourselves from the sun…I am sure she just wasn’t thinking and got caught up in whatever she was doing,but WOW.

How about this…….wear a high SPF sunscreen and stay in the shade during the peak hours of the day. This is sending a wrong message to young women. I used to think “laying out” and having a tan was the coolest thing in the world to do. Fast forward to now, I am now a three-time melanoma survivor and it is all due to my sun exposure and tanning habits. It is not worth it….trust me I know!!!!!

@ Jen– I am so glad you are well after so many bouts with melanoma. I,too,am a cancer survivor (Lymphoma)…there are things I do to try to prevent aonther bout with it,even though it was now 17 years ago…it was Stage 4 so I take my Oncologist seriously in what he told me about how to do my best to not go through that again. Thank you for the sunscreen tips! I will definitely listen to what you said and do just what you advise. Peace.
