Keeping your skin healthy during winter

READ MORE:
It's cold outside, and you're probably starting to bundle up in your big jackets. But even a little bit of skin exposed to the elements can be harmful to your health. Jane Balderidge and Sonja Powell spend most of their time outdoors. Even in the winter, they try not to neglect their skin. Powell said, "I still do the sunscreen, especially on mornings like this, and lots of chapstick." Balderidge said, "Luckily I started when I was 15, because I'm outside most of my life and I would look 100 years old right now if I didn't. So I try never to miss a day." But not everyone is so careful during the winter months. When you're outside or at the beach in the summertime many people remember to put on sun screen but experts say in the winter, the same rules still apply. Dr. Jonathon Crane said, "You do get a lot of sun exposure during the winter time and the ultraviolet a exposure also in the winter time so you definitely want to use that sunscreen." Dr. Crane says dry skin is also a problem. "If it starts to dry out bad it could itch more, it could start flaking more, you could get areas of redness which we call dry skin eczema. Dry skin eczema could sometimes get infected easier than normal skin." But he says there are steps to prevent your skin from drying. "You want to take quick cool showers, because if you take a long shower it rinses off a lot of your skin oils," Crane said. He recommends using a mild bar soap to keep in your skin's natural oils. "When you get out of that shower you want to moisturize. And creams are a lot better than lotions." And last but not least, Dr. Crane says don't forget the sunscreen. "If you want to avoid skin cancer it pays to use sunscreen and that's the easiest way to avoid skin cancer is just by using good sunscreen." That's something Powell tries to do. "I do it because n 10 or 15 years from now I don't want to have lots of wrinkles." Crane says even though you may not be outside as much in the winter or you may not have as much skin exposed, it doesn't matter, sun damage adds up. He says to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.

Jesus is black. Blacks are the real Jews

Jesus is black. Blacks are the real Jews. Knowledge is power. "You're naked," the Serpent said to Eve & Adam one day in the Garden. He said this because He knew something about them they didn't yet know about themselves. You are naked.

luis

Jesus is black? If he existed he was a JEW, thats not black. Moron. Who said Adam and Eve were white? Knowledge is power and you have neither. Free thinker/atheist.. Bring it.

Whites in denial about God's damnation of them

“Just like slaves whites left hanging from trees God slowly burned State Representative Paul Crowley to death showing whites His contempt for them and revealing to all other people of color that the behavior of whites is unacceptable” - Jacobi Ali. Ali, who spoke to black sun worshipers in Rhode Island, after Crowley’s death admonished people of all other races that they are not to replicate white people’s behavior. “God is warning us that any race of people who demonstrate the behavior white people have demonstrated will be burned from the earth. “God can make His sunlight single out and target any race of people He wants to burn from existence.”

luis

DO you have ANY original thoughts? Or are you such a moron that you just follow? I bet you would be the life of any party you went to. Idea.... in July why don't you go to the beach and lay there about 2/3 hours and see if you burn. When you do, go buy some icyhot and slather it all over your burnt black skin.

YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL A JOKE!

FIRST OF ALL I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT I THINK THAT IT’S A DISCRACE THAT THIS NEW SITE LETS IDIOTS CARRY ONE LIKE THIS. GOD DOES NOT HATE ANYONE! I AM SURE THAT HE WOULD FROWN UPON THIS NONSENCE. I AM NOT SURE WHAT KIND OF NARROW MINDED RACIEST WOULD MAKE COMMENTS ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE AND GOD, BUT IT MUST BE A LOW PERSON, I WILL PRAY FOR YOU MR JACOBS YOU WILL NEED IT WHEN YOU HAVE TO ANSWER FOR THE COMMENTS YOU HAVE MADE. I HOPE HE WILL HAVE MERCY ON YOU. DON’T JUDGE ALL WHITES FOR WHAT HAS BEEN DONE IN THE PAST! YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT THAT A RACIEST WHITE. GET A LIFE!

Luis

Racists can pull racism out of any story and this proves it. Luis has major problems and his skin color is the least of them.

healthy skin and racism?

What in the heck does that article have to do with racism????? it doesn't matter what color a person is, just take care of your skin!! my God, oh yeah and what does it have to do with God??? you people must be confused about what you are reading. Maybe you are leaving messages for the wrong article..lol..read it again!!! God nor the color of ones skin is mentioned. BY THE WAY, if I have spelled something wrong it is because I AM AGRIVATED AND OFFENDED AT THE FACT THAT SOMEONE ALWAYS HAS TO BRING RACE IN TO IT AND I AM NOT CONCERNED ABOUT HOW I SPELL AT THIS POINT. GET A LIFE AND RAISE YOUR CHILDREN TO LOVE EVERYONE!INCLUDING GOD, HE IS AN AWSOME GOD!! OH, I AM WHITE!!!!! SO DON'T TRY TO GUESS MY RACE BASED ON MY WORDS.

May God open your eyes to the truth!

Mr.Jacobs,for your own sake get help.When God created our sun,moon,stars,day and night,he saw that it was good.I don't believe his intention is to do us harm.I work in the medical field and if you think for one second that sickle cell is now regressive, you have been very decieved.I also see folks of all races with skin cancers.The hate in your heart is very sad.The devil is a lier!!!Please go to a church and tell the pastor there your feelings about these matters.God will set you free of these feelings and give you peace.To the person whom has put these awful things in this young mans mind,SHAME ON YOU.Peace unto you all.

Skin???

What in the hell does race have to with this? The sun and sunblocks are the topic here. What in the hell is wrong with yall people?

Melanoma?

I think your statements are a little out of line. All races of people can get melanoma. Bob Marley had melanoma.

This guy has got to be

This guy has got to be joking. Nobody is this wacky and still walking free.

Bob Marley

Blacks *tend* to get a form of skin cancer on the soles of our feet and/or the palms of our hands ... places on our bodies that don't receive *adequate* sunlight. Hence, Bob Marley. Also, note: Bob Marley was a sun worship forerunner. We all have great admiration for him. Through him and his private writings we learned not to stare at the sun with our carnal eyes. It wasn't until Yacub 13 X that we learned to use our 3rd eye to aggressively absorb and project the ultraviolet light that give you melanoma.

to The Oaks resident

You had to learn from Bob Marley not to stare at the sun? Where did you learn that you could project ultraviolet, melanoma causing light from your "third eye"? Keep posting... I'm writing a book and this kind of crap is priceless.

If this kind of garbage was

If this kind of garbage was being spewed by a white man about black people these comments would never be posted but yet the liberal media gives idiots like this a pass. What gives?

Melanoma for Whites if the Curse of God

Skin cancers and melanomas are the curse of God against white people for their skin sins and continued evil of today. In Daniel, Isaiah and Revelations God warns He will curse the evil with the Sores That Do Not Heal. Skin cancer and melanomas are these sores. Based on their skin color, whites exalted themselves above everyone else on the planet and called everyone else: ugly, evil and inferior. Now, that giving everyone else life burns whites' skin. That giving everyone else life is God. The sun is God. The sun hates white people. God Hates White people. God has fixed His holy light to discriminate between black and whites so that it burns the whites. Ultraviolet light is the fire of the 2nd Rapture burning evil from the earth. Thank God!

And God said "Stupid people

And God said "Stupid people shouldn't breathe". And He gave us water to make sure people would drown who were idiots. And He gave us fire to kill the morons. You made my day in knowing I am not crazy.

Smoking

You should try reading the Bible instead of smoking it.

great troll

Great job getting everybody riled up! You win the prize for the best troll comment of the day.

Uh...Mister Wright?

I'm not sure that an insanity defense is in your best interests....

Re: Melanoma for whites the curse of God

You are certainly a WACKED out person. Is Sickle Cell the curse for the African Americans since it is more prevalent in that race? Oh...and BTW, I just don't believe God hates anyone regardless of race or national origin. I think you need a little more Bible study time.... oh...and take notes while you're doing it!

Sickle Cell & God's Hate

If it hadn't been for the cell changing into the shape of the Sickle, over 90% of the African population would have been destroyed by Malaria; and, we wouldn't be here with you in America today. Also, Sickle Cell is regressive among our populations. Melanoma and skin cancer are at epidemic proportions. It is funny and arrogant that whites claim the opening of the ozone layer is due to their misuse of chemicals and toxins. God opened the ozone layer to begin the Fires of His 2nd rapture and burn the earth of evil (which is the same as you). God has made His holy light discriminate between blacks and whites to burn the whites and shame them before the world. "Is this the man who did cause all the nations of the earth to tremble?" .... he can't even stand in the sun. Yacub 13 X is making ultraviolet light devises, tools and resources available to people of color

Melonoma

Boy, what an idiot.

God Loves Black Idiots & Burns Whites of All Levels of

God Loves Black Idiots & Burns Whites of All Levels of intelligence. White people even burn while sitting in church on Sundays.

luis jacobs

mr. jacobs....looking at your post you must of gotten out of line when the lord was handing out brains. whites may burn while their sitting in church but when they go outside they cool right off. when you meet your maker i'm sure he'll tell you to wear nothing but your drawers, because where your headed its gonna be mighty hot with no chance for ever cooling off. the sooner the better for your ignorant a*s!

Luis

Was'nt Jesus Caucasion? I don't think he was black.

He was Jewish.

He was Jewish.

melanoma

Yes, that appears to be his curse.

Back away from the pipe

"The sun hates white people. God Hates White people." Racism is a curse too. I'd be very careful when using God's name for your own racist remarks.

Luis

The other curse of god is mental illness, you got that real bad. You need to go see a Dr. FYI, black people get sunburn too and skin melanomas. God hates white people?? LMAO freak I think he hates you.
