What beauty treatments are safe during pregnancy?

Pregnant woman are generally advised to avoid chemicals and fumes. At this time it is not known if hair dye is a risk factor, but the tests that have been conducted so far indicate that it is unlikely.

Laser facial hair remover is thought to be safe during pregnancy.

Bleaches or depilatories are not recommended during pregnancy mainly because they can be absorbed into the skin and there has been no study done to determine the effects on a developing fetus. I'm not to sure about the facial product you use which contains aspirin, but I'm assuming it's probably the same as using bleaches... because once again, it is absorbed into your skin. I'd talk to your doctor about these products before hand. I hoped I helped. Stacey

Above is the former person's answer, but hair dye is not to be used in the first trimester. The first trimester is when the fetus develops all of its major organs, and hair dye, with or without ammonia, has not been fully researched. After the first trimester, it is considered safe provided you are in a well-ventilated area. It is recommended, however, that a hair color without the use of ammonia be used, and that the color not be applied to the roots/scalp.

What does magnesium do for your body?

Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant.

Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.

There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Dietary magnesium is absorbed in the small intestines. Magnesium is excreted through the kidneys.

  1. Needed for the proper functioning of muscles and nerves (inhibitory to muscle contraction).
  2. Activates cellular enzymatic activity.
  3. Important for calcium, vitamin C, phosphorus, sodium and potassium metabolism.
  4. Important for converting blood sugar into energy.
  5. Anti-stress

Yes. Magnesium is very flammable. It burns with a very bright white flame.

Magnesium fires cannot be put out with water or ordinary fire extinguishers.

What are the disadvantages of magnesium?

Magnesium metal and its alloys are explosive hazards; they are highly flammable in their pure form when molten or in powder or in ribbon form. Burning or molten magnesium metal reacts violently with water. When working with powdered magnesium, safety glasses with welding eye protection are employed, because the bright white light produced by burning magnesium contains ultraviolet light that can permanently damage the retinas of the eyes.

Magnesium is capable of reducing water to the highly flammable hydrogen gas:

Mg (s) + 2 H2O (l) → Mg(OH)2 (s) + H2 (g)

As a result, water cannot be used to extinguish magnesium fires; the hydrogen gas produced will only intensify the fire. Dry sand is an effective smothering agent but is usable only on relatively level and flat surfaces.

Magnesium also reacts with carbon dioxide to form magnesium oxide and carbon:

2 Mg (s) + CO2 → 2 MgO (s) + C (s)

Hence, carbon dioxide fire extinguishers cannot be used for extinguishing magnesium fires either.
Magnesium hasn't significant disadvantages.

Why does a burnt magnesium weigh more than the unburnt magnesium?

It is because when magnesium burn in air,it react with oxygen in air to produce magnessium(iv)oxide.
