If you start burning that fast and have no sun-sensitive conditions, I'd say that you're probably not putting enough sunscreen on. You're supposed to have about a tablespoon amount for your face alone. And even if you don't suffer from photosensitivity, if you use salicylic acid (an exfoliant used in acne washes and such), your skin will become more sensitive to the sun. Also, you could try a sunblock which physically blocks the rays, as opposed to a sunscreen which absorbs the rays. Sometimes, companies combine them. Anyway, maybe you should find something that'll block instead of absorb. Something with zinc in it. Or titanium dioxide. Either way, whichever you decide to choose, make sure you apply enough. I think that's what your current problem is--not enough to actually offer adequate protection. Good luck.
