Avoid drinking margaritas in the sun!
Mary Ruth Buchness, MD posted:
One of the most common things that we see in the office in the summer and after winter vacations are burns from people having lime juice splashed on their skin. They come in with dark marks in the shapes of splashes and drips. Lime juice is photosensitizing-if it gets on the skin while you're outside in the sun, you will burn. So drink your margarita, but don't squeeze the lime or splash the drink on yourself or your friends!
