The sun is strong here. I should have brought a parasol. I don't want to...
1. get burned,
2. get burnt,
3. get a suntan,
because if I do, I will get spots.
Are 1 to 3 correct? If not, please tell me a correct way to say it. Thank you!
Or even I don't want to burn.
How about 1, 2, and 3?
They're fine. You could also use sunburnt/ed instead.

I associate liver spots with older people, so I'd use blemishes or dark patches.
