Can you get sunburned in the shade?

Yes, because it’s actually the UV radiation, not the sunlight, that damages your skin. Although the shade offers some protection, it does not block UV rays entirely. That’s why it’s always important to wear sunscreen regardless of whether it’s bright and sunny or cool and cloudy.

Where are snow leapord bath salts legal?

To tell you the truth snow leopard bath salts have changed the chemical composition. the old formula was said to have MDPV witch was a very effective stimulant. The new formula does very little and the distributors of this product were told not to inform clients of the recent change for fear of low sales. A lot of people are angry about this especially the ones who buy in bulk. I would know i have been a loyal customer of theirs i buy in bulk i have a few jars of the old product and a ton of the new product (worthless) and they are completely different in color and the new product is clumpy not the fine powder it used to be. so to answer your question it does not contain MDPV (the chemical that made it work) anymore. so it is technically legal everywere once again except places with an city or state ordinance banning concentrated bath salts entirely no matter the content. I'm currently trying to find a bath salt that works and haven't had much success. As for snow leopard bath salt, don't get ripped off like everyone else has. It no longer works.

All bath salts made in US are changing. New MDPV has changed to clumpy mix vs the original powder mix. The powder mix was too powerful and caused uproars in crazy states like LA and FL. There are still a bunch of online shops that deal very good quality bath salts. Snow Leopard is still pretty potent, its just conforming to the upcoming laws. Tranquility, Lady Bubbles, Sky Blitz, Arctic Blast, Ivory Fresh, Ivory Wave and Vanilla Sky still all are the original blend and will be strong as he--double hockey sticks.

Sunburn

How long does a sunburn last?

Generally depending on your skin complexion and severity of the burn the pain will last 2-4 days, less if the burn is minor, more if the burn is severe(in which case seeing a doctor is not a bad idea). Also peeling which generally occurs with burns, will take a few more days but peeling although unsightly, is not usually painful. Treatment can be applied in many different lotions(aloe vera)/home remedies/etc. Also avoid exposures to the sun to make sure the condition does not worsen which could make the burn last a few more days. If you have blisters on your shoulders, back,arms ect. then sunburn may last about 1-3 weeks, depends on how bad.

Why girls pierce ear what is scientific reason behind piercing ear?

You may find that there is no scientific reason girls and boys pierce their ears, it is just for glamour reasons. It is not dangerous and you don't get a disease from it. The worst that can happen is that it gets infected, you have to let it heal and let it heal again.

Girls pierce ears for fashion or cultural reason. There is no scientific reason for it.

When ears are pierced, the earring is less likely to be painful to wear. Those who do not have pierced ears must wear a pinch type earring which can hurt the ear. Piercing the ear gives a means to "hang" the earring in a substantial bit of fat. It is less painful than the alternative.

Can pyogenic granuloma be treated without surgery?

.

My nephew had a pyogenic granuloma on his finger which grew rather large

and bled profusely. His doctor told him it would not go away without surgery.

He lived with it for about two months [keeping it covered due to bleeding and

to prevent infection.] Then all the sudden it began to shrink... within two weeks

it disappeared. It has not grown back.

Shingles (infection)

Are there cures for shingles?

There is no cure for shingles, but treatment may shorten the length of illness and prevent complications. Treatment options include:

  • Antiviral medicines to reduce the pain and duration of shingles.
  • Pain medicines, antidepressants, and topical creams to relieve long-term pain.

antibiotic treatment

Shingles is caused by a virus called Herpes zoster, sometimes years after having chicken pox; no one knows what causes the virus to re-activate but is often preceded by stressful situations or a weakened immune system.

Over-the-counter (OTC) antihistamines (Benadryl) and topical numbing creams (Lidocaine cream), "Nupercaine or Benadryl jell can relieve the itching and pain.

Cold tap water compresses can be applied to sooth the blisters and prevent infection. Once the blisters have opened using mild soap and water and petroleum jelly will prevent the skin from becoming too dry or inflamed.

Some doctors now prescribe antiviral medications; acyclovir (Zovirax), valacyclovir (Valtrex), and famciclovir (Famvir). If started as soon as the flair up starts, they can decrease the pain and duration of the outbreak. Corticosteroids are used to decrease inflammation.

A severe outbreak may need to be treated with pain medication if OTC Tylenol or Ibuprofen is not helpful see your doctor.

The weeping blisters contain the virus and is contagious to individuals who are susceptible to the chickenpox virus, so skin to skin contact with anyone who could catch the chicken pox, including new born babies, needs to be avoided.

The following are treatments other sufferers have tried, please check with your physician before using a home remedy: Acupuncture, Brookskin liniment, soaking in a bath of Epsom salts, fresh juices from an aloe plant can be applied as often as needed, Calamine lotion, Destine (diaper rash cream, Butt paste (diaper rash cream) bathing in or a paste made from Oatmeal bath to be soothing.

Body Piercing

What do you do if your lip piercing is sinking into your skin?

Swelling is a normal reaction after a piercing, rinse with Listerine and do salt water soaks to avoid infection.

Get a second opinion from a different piercer. It sounds like whoever did it may have used a bar too short, if a new piercing doesn't have enough room to move around it can become embedded. It sucks having to have a larger piercing in your mouth but that's how it's done and anyone who performs an oral piercing and uses a short bar doesn't know what they're doing. If you have a long bar in and the skin is STILL growing over it, this could be a serious problem and I'd go see a doctor about it. (rejection in lip piercings happens towards the lip, not out away from the face)

It is also worth noting that lip piercings are one of a few that commonly "nest" meaning that the jewelry will press into the softer tissue (the inside of your lip in this case) and leave a small, temporary indention that the back rests inside of when you wear jewelry. If the skin is not folding or growing over the back of the stud, it doesn't get any worse with time, and there isn't any undue discomfort or pain, it is likely just doing this and is nothing to be alarmed about. If it does worsen or causes pain or discomfort, seek advice from a different, more qualified piercer, as this one's advice to "just keep popping it out" sounds like they have no clue what they're talking about.

Can you use Jojoba Oil on your face?


Yes, you can, but it depends on your skin type. You should diagnose your skin type first. Is your skin normal to dry or combination to oily? Jojoba oil is good for dry or normal skin, but is a fungicide too, which can be good for acne.

Answer 2:
It is a best face moisturizer for acne and combination skin, apply it overnight to cure acne, reduce scars, prevent wrinkles.

What causes vaginal acne?

Acne on the genitals occurs for the same reasons it occurs on the face, back or any other place on the body. It is simply adding insult to the injury of having to survive adolescence that it occurs in such a private spot. You have my sympathy. Keep clean, eat a healthy diet and wait. It will go away.

There are many causes of vaginal acne. They may include the following:

Bacteria in the pores in skin which make infection on the body

Excess use of anabolic steroids

Excessive exposure to high levels of chlorine compounds

Any drugs that include halogens, barbiturates and androgens

Stress through increased production of levels of hormones from the adrenal glands

Collections of dead skin cells

Hyperactive sebaceous glands

Any scratching or irritation of the skin will be activated inflammation

Hormonal activities such as menstrual periods and puberty

The main causes of vaginal acne are narrowing of the hair follicle and hormone-driven excess production of sebum.

Does Cetaphil help clear acne?

Cetaphil is a moisturizing hand cream designed for moisturizing skin. Not clearing skin. In fact, it may clog your pores and actually cause acne. So the short answer is no.

>>cetaphil makes a cleanser and lotion. it is a very mild water based solution. using cetaphil cleanser alone can sometimes dry your skin. it is non-abrasive and barely suds, which is good because you don't want to damage your skin by scrubbing it twice a day. it is mild enough to use every day. i saw improvement as far as skin clarity after several weeks. keep in mind, it is not medicine and is extremely mild, good for sensitive skins. i apply liberally to dry skin and then rinse off thoroughly, then apply the lotion and then gently wipe off the excess so it won't clog my pores. once a week i apply the cleanser and gently rub it in with a washcloth before rinsing off again, like a super gentle scrub. hope this answer helps.

Is it possible to have a sun tan on your tongue?

No!

You get a tan when the melanin in your skin clumps together to keep you from burning. The more melanin you have, the harder it is to burn. That's why you hardly ever hear African-American people taking about their sunburns, they have a LOT of melanin.

Your tongue (and your liver) do not contain melanin because they don't need it. They are normally inside your body and do not have skin.
