How long do you have to be in the sun to make blisters?

    That depends on one’s own skin sensitivity. Those with deeper skin tones are less prone to sunburn than fair and/or sensitive skin. The problem with sunburn is that you don’t usually feel it until it’s too late. A good sign that your sunburn will prove itself severe is if you have been in the sun for an extended period of time and you notice that your skin is already quite red. Most people will remove themselves from direct sunlight before the burn is visible (redness will develop and deepen over the next few hours). Blistering is an indication of severe (second-degree) sunburn, and its full effect may not appear until 12-24 hours after exposure. At that point, you would be in some pretty serious pain.
