If you sun burn, was it worse while you were preg or was it better?

I am 21 weeks and i hae always had really fair skin. Even to the point that if i don't put on sunblock i will burn in 15 mins, but since i have been preg I don't burn as badly and i actually tan now. I have always been the type that burnt then pealed and then burnt again never a tan. So do you think your skin got better with pregnancy or worse?

  • I should mention yes i got acne more too but when i go out in the sun it helps clear it up.

    I forgot to mention, I don't want anyone to tell me i still need sunblock. I do use sun screen still but i used to burn when i had sun screen on now i dont burn at all. Also i don't go outside to get a tan i just have things to do outside like so many others.
