“…Sun Damage
Being out in the Sun Too Long, without Sun Block will cause your skin to begin creasing up over a period of time. Tanning is also not very good for the skin.

Facial Movement will also cause wrinkles. Whenever you laugh, smile, squint, frown, etc, your face begins to create creases in the skin that over time, will turn into wrinkles.

“… “While topical creams can show some improvements in skin quality, the majority of ingredients just remains on the skin�s surface,” says Zuckerbrot. “A well-balanced diet can ensure that nutrients are absorbed into the skin.” So why not just pop a few pills to get the vitamins your diet may be lacking? Well, consuming a healthy variety of food is by far the best way to meet your body�s needs because food provides a number of benefits that a supplement can’t — basically, you get more bang for your buck. “Not only is turning to food a tastier option, but supplements don’t contain all the vitamins and nutrients present in natural foods.

Specific Beauty Review highya.com
“..What Causes Dark Spots, Uneven Skin, and Dryness?

Healthline and the Mayo Clinic tell us that dark spots are flat black, brown, or gray spots on the skin that can result because of different melanin levels. Also called age spots, liver spots, or sun spots, these distinctive marks typically occur on sun-exposed areas like the face, hands, and shoulders.

The Mayo Clinic states that dark spots are caused by overactive pigment cells, which can be triggered by dark spots, it seems that aging skin, pollution, unbalanced hormones and sun damage are likely causes. Though the spots themselves are harmless, Healthline mentions that they can be the result or an indicator of an illness.

Skin Gash

Last month (Sunday, May 27th 2018), I was riding my bicycle and was trying to video record on my I-phone with my left hand. As I was about to finish, I saw a car coming my way as I was turning left to this sidewalk to get out of the way. Well, I press on my brakes with my right hand, which controls the front brakes. Well, I did it too hard and I ended up flipping over my handle bars. I was trying to brace my fall, but ended up scraping both hands. Fortunately, my I-phone didn’t break as it had a double cover (glass cover over the regular glass case cover and a leather case). I saw streams of blood flowing over this gash between my pink and neighboring finger. The guy that was driving towards me was courteous enough to stop and ask if I was alright, which I told him I was and we both continued on in our ways…

I can home (visiting parents in St. Paul) and went straight upstairs to the bathroom to “apply first aid” ..

1-Washed my hand with cold water and soap until most of the blood and dirt came off
2nd-Apply Hydrogen Peroxide (less stingy) if you have any, but if you don’t like we did :(…apply a small dab of “rubbing alcohol” gently
3-Then dry it out
4-apply triple anti-biotic ointment with aloe vera
5-wrap a band aid

Unfortunately, the gash was so big and blood was still running out. I decided to get “better” First-aid material for this more serious injury. I went to the local Cubs grocery store and found this …

“..2 in x 2.3 yds (5.1 cm x 2.1 m) unstretched. Sticks to itself, not to skin. Not made with natural rubber latex. Compare to Johnson & Johnson Hurt-Free Tape ..”

I then wrapped this over it..

Home Remedies for Burns – 8 Natural Treatments Mike Barrett by Mike Barrett
Posted on February 13, 2013 naturalsociety.com
“..Natural Home Remedies for Burns

Aloe Vera – One of the primary go-to home remedies for sunburn, aloe vera is notorious for its soothing, cooling properties. To use aloe vera for burns, simply squeeze the juice out of an aloe vera plant and apply it to the burn. In addition to having a natural burn treatment right in your home, many other health benefits of aloe vera can be experienced as well. Alternatively, you can buy organic aloe vera gel at your local natural grocery market.

Egg Whites – You may have never tried this home remedy before, but it is actually a popular one. Simply separate the yolk from a couple eggs, and soak the burn in the egg whites. This ever-so-simple natural treatment could work instantly, and could leave you feeling pain-free forever after a few hours of application.

Baking Soda – Also resting among the more popular home remedies for burns, baking soda is another simple option that could dissipate the pain away. Just mix some baking soda with water to make a paste, and apply the paste to the burned area. After drying, rinse (literally) and repeat.

Aluminum Foil – Although a less “natural” remedy, using aluminum foil for burns is one of the top home remedies found on Earthclinic. After being burned, run the area under cold water. Afterwards, apply aluminum foil (shiny side) onto the burn. As many report on Earthclinic, pain may intensify upon applying the foil, but after about 30 minutes to an hour, the pain should subside if not entirely, then at least significantly.

Vinegar – A treatment used by countless individuals for years, vinegar has the potential to offer immediate relief. For treatment, just soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply to the burn. You might also do a compress soaked in vinegar and water. Working as an astringent and antiseptic, vinegar helps prevent infection by killing potential pathogens and helps burns to heal faster (potentially because of the pH factor).

Honey – Also harnessing antibiotic properties that can help prevent infection, honey can be a great natural burn treatment simply when applied to the area. You may also try placing honey on a gauze bandage and keeping it on throughout the day. If you go this route, change the bandage 3-4 times.

Tea Bags – Using tea bags as a natural burn treatment could certainly be the solution for you, but there are a few ways to go about this. One way is to place 2-3 tea bags under a spout of cold water, then applying the liquid. Alternatively, you may want to use 3-4 tea bags and make a mixture using 2 cups fresh mint leaves, and 4 cups boiling water, applying the liquid onto the burn with a cotton ball after letting it cool. Lastly, you can also make a stay-in-place poultice using 2-3 wet tea bags if you’re on the go. Try using black tea, as the tannic acid in in the tea can reduce pain significantly.

Lavender Essential Oil – Even used in some hospitals for burns, lavender essential oil is often recommended for both pain relief and to expedite the healing process. For treatment, you can either pour lavender oil onto a gauze or clean cloth and apply it (replacing the gauze every few hours), or you can spray the area with therapeutic grade lavender oil after exposing the burn to some cold water. Lavender has antibiotic, painkilling, and natural healing properties.
