wrrrrooooonnnngggg!

stifle it, edith.


lukewarm is exactly warmer than your body temp. the definition of lukewarm is if it feels slightly warm to the touch, between 98 and 105 degrees. go look it up.

room temp water is slightly cool to the touch, which i've stated before, and is the maximum temp for a bath or cool compress. or else you might as well just sit in the ROOM TEMP environment that you exist in, and radiate the heat out of your skin naturally.
water increases conductivity, so they help. but any warmer, and you're adding heat to a burn.

ok, i'm done.

where's gb with my milk?

sunscreen, sunblock.....please go out there with protection.......it's not worth it.......and if you scar like I do you really don't want skin cancer on your face......you won't look good afterwards, I promise......

ladies back in the Gone With The Wind days women carried parasols (fancy umbrellas for a good reason) my grandmother always wore a huge hat and covered herself when she went to work in the garden...................and she almost had no wrinkles when she died at 89.............she wasn't vain.......just did it as that is the way she was raised up...........

Well, since you said to look it up, I did.

According to:

*Wictionary - lukewarm is nether hot nor cold.

*Collaborative International Dictionary of English - lukewarm is neither hot nor cold

* The Bible: "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold or hot. I wish you were one or the other! So, because you are Lukewarm -- neither hot nor cold -- I am about to spit you out of my mouth" (Revelation 3:15-16 NIV).

An example is they tell you that a babies bottle should be lukewarm. Check it on your wrist and if it feels neither hot nor cold, the temperature is right. Or, just ask a Dermatologist!

Okay...Now I'm done!

So how is that sunburn?

Thanks in advance.
Apple cider vinegar on a washcloth. Put it in the vinegar, wring an lay on the burn. It will very quickly lift the heat out and relieve the pain. It's amazing how well it works.

I use fresh aloe as well. I have the plant which is very useful. It works well for bug bites too.

I use the aloe... after the vinegar. The vinegar really does remove the heat quickly.. The aloe replaces the moisture.

Well you may not like the idea of smelling like applecider vinegar but it will be just for a short time and the stuff definetly works. Have someone rub the vinegar all over the sunburned area and within a short time the sting from the sunburn will leave and before you know it the pain is all over with.
