Simon Cowell's AWFUL sunburn is the ultimate reminder to wear sun cream

Ouch!

We know it might seem like the heatwave is over, but don’t be fooled – there’s still burning power in that sun.

Yes, we’ve worked our way through quite a bit of sun cream in the last few weeks, and we're proud to say there's not a farmer's tan in sight.

We know it might not be the most glamorous step in our beauty routine, but SPF is hella important and nobody is proving that more than Simon Cowell.

No, he’s not the new brand ambassador for P20 – the TV star stepped out for a party over the weekend and was looking absolutely scorched.

Yep, Simon looks to have gotten totally scalded in the heatwave over the last few weeks and not in a good way.

Looking a lot more like Alex from Love Island than medical professionals would recommend, Simon has us wincing at the sight of his tomato hue.

Standing next to his bronzed girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, Simon was a poster campaign for why we should all be lathering on the sun cream these days, just like our mammies told us.

It’s too late for you now, Simon, but do yourself a favour man - get that after sun on ya, we're sore just looking at you.
