Australian Gold Suntan Lotion
When putting on sun tan lotion, am I supposed to apply sunscreen on first and then sun tan lotion? Or do I just use suntan lotion since it has SPF 5?
SPF15 Broad-spectrum: Apply 1 oz of sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 (the higher the SPF, the more UVB protection) liberally 15-30 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every 2 hours & after swimming, sweating, or drying off with a towel. Use a sunscreen that says “broad-spectrum” on the label - that means it will screen out both UVB and UVA rays. Look for the new UVA rating system: 4 stars = highest UVA protection.
Cover up: Wear long-sleeved shirts, hats and long pants to reduce exposure to sunlight and harmful uv rays.
Does having a tan help protect me against getting skin cancer (i.E., can the use of suntan lotion be reduced as I become more tan?)?
Is it safe to put gold bond lotion on your penis everyday for chronic dry skin? Will there be any long term problems I should know about?
Which kind?: As long as it does not irritate your penis, it should be ok. The anti-itch formula may irritate the tip of the penis however if applied accidentally. But why?
Persistent itch located on jaw line neck and chest mainly nipple and turned white. No rash. Tried lotion, oils, gold bond, anti itch. No Relief 4mth.
Rashes: Rashes are generally impossible to diagnose over the computer. Since you have tried so many things without relief, it's time to see the dr. To get it examined and properly diagnosed so the best treatment can hopefully occur. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
No: The sunblock should protect form UV-A and B rays. It will allow you to tan as well. Putting an oil on first may dilute the sunblock lowering its quality. The oil will not help you get any darker as well.
I am short of breathe if I lie down to sleep or even to suntan. I do not smoke. What could cause this? Tks
How can I prevent a suntan from peeling? I like how it looks and don't want it to go away. What measures can I take besides for moisturizing?
Can't stop nature: If one's skin got fried by the sun, new skin cells will form to replace the sunburned skin all at one time (because greater skin damage was done all at one time). If one's skin was not fried but just gradually tanned, new skin cells will replace the tanned skin at the normal rate that skin cells replace themselves. Otherwise, if one were to keep old skin, she would look 100 years-old very rapidly.
Patience: Creams which bleach the skin are not advised. Instead, to lighten skin, use sunscreens regularly on all exposed skin.
That depends on: Things like time of day, intensity of sun, skin protection.
I have natural medium brown skin and used a skin whitening cream with hydroquinone to whiten my skin a year ago. Is it permanent? Can I suntan my skin
No: It inhibits melanin which lightens the skin but the melanocytes are still there and effects will wear off over time.
Had laser hair removal on legs. Have white marks because skin was a burned. Can I continue the sessions? Can I get suntan?
Yes/No: No such thing as hair removal. It is "hair reduction." if you were burned, you might want to have them turn the power down on the laser. You should never get a suntan whether or not you have scars and therefore should always use sun-block protection. Sun block is even more important when there are scars.See 1 more doctor answer
It's not a suntan, my skin is rubbing off so much in diff places that when I collect it in my hand it looks like thick putty- jaundice or vit defi?
Confused?: Your statement is the very definition of when one needs to see a physician and not be searching on the internet. Please sign off of the internet and go see a Dermatologist or your family doctor urgently.
Lotion: Having 4 kids and 6 grandkids, the simple answer is because he can. Kids at this age explore their environment by putting everything in their mouth. You put lotion on him all the time and he sticks out his tongue to get some to explore and because it is a game to him. Fortunately it is not dangerous unless he were to eat the whole bottle.
Aloe straight from: The plant is recommended. Lotions w aloe don't have a high enough aloe concentration. Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) can v redness, pain, itching ; swelling from burns. It has anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial ; antifungal qualities. It speeds burn healing by stimulating new skin growth.
