Question ...

Post by Krissiemarie on Sat Jun 20, 2015 7:57 pm

So anyone ever forget sunscreen one day and come home wash off the paint and find a nice white spot where the design was? I've never had this happen in all my 10 years painting. Though normally I wear some kind of sunscreen. Embarassed it hurts. Lol okay that's my question. Hi

I had the opposite happen one time when organizing the children's section of a children's hospital fundraiser (although I wasn't painted, or painting, just supervising)- cloudy day, totally forgot sunscreen until it was too late - most of the skin on my forehead (especially up near and around where my hair is) had turned brown and over the coming week flaked off... not so pretty Razz

It was for a chuck wagon cook off. And they had native Americans teaching about their traditions and dance. I thought it fitting..

It could also be marketed to people who love to tan. Prettier than those stickers

I have it listed on my website and let people know when I paint them on sunny days that facepainting pretty much works as a sunblock and may leave tan lines. It has never stopped anyone from getting it and many get excited about it. Same goes for glitter tattoos.

I'm usually pretty careful to stay out of the sun while painting. :/ I don't tan, i burn. lol

Fun fact though, if you have a sunburn, use some white vinegar soaked in a cloth and put it on the burn, it will release the heat and restore the PH of your skin because vinegar as a very similar PH to human skin. Works every time. Very Happy

You can use white vinegar or apple cider vinegar, diluted or not diluted.

Generally apple cider vinegar is around a PH of 5, while white vinegar is 2.5. So technically apple cider vinegar is better, but I have used white vinegar with pretty much the same results.

"Vinegar contains acetic acid—one of the components of medications such as Aspirin. It can help ease sunburn pain, itching, and inflammation. Soak a few sheets of paper towels in white vinegar, and apply them to the sunburned areas. Leave them on until the towels are dry. Repeat as needed."
- http://www.besthealthmag.ca/sunburn/#kASLH1vX4hdwhBD2.97

More on why it works:

"Your skin is fairly acidic, which helps it ward off the advances of harmful bacteria and fungi. The optimal pH of human skin is 5,5 and you can measure it with a piece of litmus paper. Your sweat with the sebum on your skin to form something called an acid mantle, which has a pH of 4 to 5.5."
- www.health24.com/Medical/Skin/Caring...skin/What-is-skin-pH-20120721

"Natural skin surface pH is on average below 5"
- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18489300

"Using vinegar on a sunburn is effective because during the fermentation process, the malic acid and acetic acid found in apple cider vinegar help neutralize sunburns and reestablish the skin’s potenz hydrogen (pH) levels. This promotes healing and relief. When skin burns, the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays attack the natural pH balance of skin. This causes inflammation and pain, leading to blistering and peeling of the skin.
Vinegar on a sunburn helps draw out harmful free radicals from the skin and restores the skin’s pH balance. This promotes proper healing and has a soothing effect on a painful sunburn. Vinegar also acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps reduce swelling, blistering and peeling of the skin."

Hope this helped clear things up for you.

P.S. If there is one thing people should know about me by now is that i never spout information unless I can back it up. Very Happy

are you referring to diluted apple cider vinegar? i found several references that list the pH of apple cider vinegar at 2.8-3.1, which is slightly higher than white vinegar. (scientific ones, my background is in science, so i always double check. alternative lifestyle and new-agey don't count, too much misinformation.)

however, if you dip your finger in cider vinegar, it is by no means the same as touching your skin.

You can dilute it yes, but i usually don't. Undiluted apple cider vinegar has a PH of about 5 (according to google).

Also i didn't say it was the same, i said it was similar.

There hasn't been any study on this, and it's more an 'old wives tale' then 'new agey' if anything lol. But it does work, I've done it since I was a kid, my entire family has and it's always worked great. Most of the "proof" in this comes from testimonials really.

But try it yourself next time as a science experiment and decide for yourself.

i have to admit it sounds counterintuitive, putting acid on a radiation burn affraid (which is what a sunburn is). lol, doesn't that sound like a bad sci-fi experience?

btw, by new agey, i meant facts like the correct ph, not the part about treating sunburn, i read several accounts that it works. i avoid getting sunburned, as i don't like pain (wimp wimp).
