Feeling a bit tender after too long in the sun?

Feeling a bit tender after tool long in the sun?The sun. People have worshipped it for thousands of years. But only in the last century have people worshipped the sun by baking themselves to a golden tan, which often masks an angry red burn.
If you've overexposed your skin to the sun and end up with a sunburn, this home remedies can make you a bit more comfortable until Mother Nature can heal the burn. Keep in mind, though, that this remedies cannot reverse the very real damage caused by unprotected exposure to the sun's rays.

The plain old potato makes for a wonderful pain reliever. It's a time-tested technique known throughout the world. Take two washed potatoes, cut them into small chunks, and place them in a blender or food processor. Blend or process until the potatoes are in liquid form. Add water if they look dry. Pat the burned areas with the pulverized potatoes. Wait until the potatoes dry, then take a cool shower. Another less messy method is to apply the mash to a clean gauze and place on the burn. Change the dressing every hour. Continue applying several times a day for a few days until the pain is relieved.

Then again, prevention is better than cure. But it's easy to say that retrospectively....

Fingernails: Do's and don'ts for healthy nails

Fingernails: Do's and don'ts for healthy nailsAre you taking good care of your nails? Here's what you need to know to keep your fingernails in tiptop shape.

Take a close look at your fingernails. Are they strong and healthy looking? Or do you see ridges, dents, or areas of unusual color or shape? Many less than desirable nail conditions can be avoided through proper fingernail care. Others indicate an underlying condition that requires attention.
Fingernails: What's normal, what's not

Your fingernails — composed of laminated layers of a protein called keratin — grow from the area at the base of the nail under your cuticle. As new cells grow, older cells become hard and compacted and are eventually pushed out toward your fingertips.

Healthy fingernails are smooth, without pits or grooves. They're uniform in color and consistency and free of spots or discoloration. Sometimes fingernails develop harmless vertical ridges that run from the cuticle to the tip of the nail. Vertical ridges tend to become more prominent with age. Fingernails can also develop white lines or spots due to injury, but these eventually grow out with the nail.

Not all nail conditions are normal, however. Consult your doctor or dermatologist if you notice:

Changes in nail color, such as discoloration of the entire nail or a dark streak under the nail
Changes in nail shape, such as curled nails
Thinning or thickening of the nails
Separation of the nail from the surrounding skin
Bleeding around the nails
Redness, swelling or pain around the nails
Fingernail care: Do's and don'ts

To keep your fingernails looking their best, follow these simple guidelines.

Do:
Keep your fingernails dry and clean. This prevents bacteria, fungi and other organisms from growing under your fingernails. Wear cotton-lined rubber gloves when washing dishes, cleaning or using harsh chemicals, and avoid long soaks in the tub.
Trim and file your fingernails regularly. Use a sharp manicure scissors or clippers. Trim your nails straight across, then round the tips in a gentle curve. It might be easiest to trim and file your fingernails when they're soft, such as after bathing.
Use moisturizer. When you use hand lotion, rub the lotion into your fingernails and cuticles, too.

Don't:
Abuse your fingernails. To prevent nail damage, don't use your fingernails as tools to pick, poke or pry things.
Bite your fingernails or pick at your cuticles. These habits can damage the nail bed. Even a minor cut alongside your fingernail can allow bacteria or fungi to enter and cause an infection.
Pull off hangnails. You might rip live tissue along with the hangnail. Instead, carefully clip off hangnails.
Ignore problems. If you have a nail problem that doesn't seem to go away on its own or is associated with other signs and symptoms, consult your doctor or dermatologist for an evaluation.

DIY Cooling Foot Cream Recipe

DIY Cooling Foot Cream RecipeI don’t know about you, but the thought of putting sandals on right about now seems like a really bad idea! My heels are such a problem. So, in the spirit of getting sandal ready, I thought we should make a super thick and luxurious foot cream! And… As an added bonus, we can add the essential oils, peppermint and tea tree for a cooling sensation and de-odorizing benefits. Olive Oil is one of my favorite oils to use in my homemade moisturizers and cleansers. It is so healthy for the skin! It is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins. Vitamin A is a healing and rebuilding vitamin found in olive oil. It helps your cells to repair and renew. So as you can see, it is super healing for broken, cracked heels. Not only is it healing, it is one of the most moisturizing oils. Plus, it’s probably sitting in your cupboard right now! Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil that has been cold pressed is the best olive oil with the least processing, this is what I look for when using my olive oil on my skin and for cooking! Shea Butter is an amazingly rich butter that hydrates and nourishes the skin-it helps your skin to heal and repair. Adding Peppermint and Melaleuca (tea tree) oil takes this cream to the next level. Tea Tree it anti bacterial, anti fungal and antimicrobial. It is a very effective treatment for foot fungus and athlete’s foot. Peppermint is antiseptic. It helps to soothe and revive tired feet. It can neutralize odor as well as encourage circulation. I use peppermint oil on every ache and pain. It is amazing for headaches and cramps. Not only does it relieve and refresh, it also is very moisturizing!


Recipe

1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 TBSP. Shea Butter
2 heaping TBSP. Emulsifying Wax
1 cup of distilled water
1 tsp. Citric Acid
30 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
15 drops Melaleuca Essential Oil
