    If you do not have a piercing and just cleaned your belly button with dish soap, then it shouldn't cause any issues or weird reactions.

  • I have a pimple where I'm getting my eyebrow pierced, what do I do?

    So I have a small pimple where the brow piercing would go or be right next to it. I'm going in and getting it done later today. Should I do it on the other side or should I not worry about the one mall pimple?

Looks like I ate a red popsicle or strawberrys and it smeered all over my mouth. Reminds me of clown lips lol. I just really want nude or light pink lips that don't stand out a lot at all and don't look like they are washing my skin out and making me look bad. Are there any surgerys or is lips tattooing a good idea? Anything permanent? Thank you for any answers.

  • I am worried about my new piercings?

    Best answer: Nah not really.... I mean you probably could but it would kind of hurt, maybe bleed. Just wear them and see if anyone notices or says anything.

  • Will my eye bags get worse as I age?

    Best answer: Sweetie nobody has a crystal ball to tell you that. You keep asking, please take the good advice you were given and go see a doctor about them. They are in a much better position to tell you why, how it may progress and what can be done about them. Lots of people have them, you are not the only one.

    Best answer: ditto, they are probably genetic. You can use make up to hide them or go see a plastic surgeon to see what can be done, but wait until you are 18 as most of them will not work on kids for something like that,

  • Do you really have to shave twice to do it "properly"?

    I've had my lip pierced a bit over half a year now and this morning I finally changed from a ring to a labret style stud. The one with the plate in the back. I've always worn a ring and never a stud because they felt wierd when I put them in. Today I finally decided to wear it and I'm a little worried. The stud itself is just the perfect length to fit in my lip, and now the plate part in the back looks like it's sinking in my lip. When I pull my lip down part of it is covered by the inside of my lip. I'm a little worried and don't know if I should switch it. I could just be over thinking it, but I just wanna be sure. When I push the stud up so the plate isn't covered, the piercing hole looks normal. Thank you !

    I got my industrial done on September 5th and currently it’s September 7th (2:00AM). I haven’t twisted my piercing yet for 2 reasons. First reason is that I’m confused wether or not I’m supposed to, and the second reason is that IT HURTS TO EVEN TOUCH! I’ve been hearing that if you do twist it, you allow bacteria to get in and cause the healing to slow done. But if you don’t twist it, then the skin will heal around it. Is that true? Should I twist or leave it alone??

    Best answer: You start a proper skincare routine.
    Cleanse, tone, moisturize, treat.
    Cleansing your skin removes everything. It removes oil and sweat from the day, and any makeup or dirt.
    Toning your skin is really great if you have oily skin or acne. I love tea tree oil toners because I have redness that I want to deal with. Lots of people like witch hazel. The toner is to help remove any dirt or oils that the cleanser didn't, and to treat your skin for things like acne.
    The moisturizer is an essential part of a skincare routine. If you cleanse, you have to moisturize. This is because the cleanser removes everything. So your skin freaks out because its dry, and it produces more oil. The problem with this is that the oil will clog your pores and give you more acne. A moisturizer won't. Once you have the moisturizer, your skin will stop producing as much oil. I have oily skin, so I use a very light gel moisturizer.
    Then you use an acne treatment on the active breakouts you have. This is concentrated acne medication that helps deal with pimples. use it only if you need to.
    You should be doing this morning and evening.
    For some people, their acne doesn't stop. Its called adult acne, and it doesn't mean that there is something wrong with you. You are also still a teen, so your hormones will still play a big role in your acne. Even then you can still get hormonal acne as an adult.

    Best answer: I did a little quick research online and no, they haven''t changed the size or formulation. Where did you buy this bar? At a large drugs store chain? Somewhere like target or walmart? Or did you get it at a dollar store, flea market, surplus/liquidation store or deep discount type store? It's entirely possible you have a counterfeit that was not made by Dove at all. Yes, beauty products are counterfeited all the time. Another possibility is that you have a bar that was not made for your country and have one made specifically for China or parts of Asia where consumer preferences are different. In Asia they prefer harsher soaps because they believe harsher soap can make their skin more "fair" and "bright" Shopping in a China Town or ethnic shop can mean you are getting the foreign version, not the North Amreican/Euro version. Was the price significantly cheaper that what you usually pay? Again, this is an indication that your bar isn't 100% legit.

    Contact Dove directly with your concerns. Go to their website and look for customer feedback or contact us. Take a picture of the wrapper if possible and let them know where you bought the bar and how much you paid. Dove is very attuned to consumer concerns so they really do want to hear from anyone who is unhappy with their products. Even if it is a legit Dove bar they need to hear that you are not happy with your purchase. The dove.com page has a contact us page and has everything from a toll free phone number to live chat and an e-mail link. Someone there will be willing to help you.

    Best answer: First, you took your starter earrings out too soon. That irritated the piercings, as they were still healing. You basically ripped them back open. The discharge you saw on the starter earrings likely wasn't an infection - it was cells from your healing piercing - in other words, normal. If you had an infection with the starter earrings, you'd leave the earrings in, and treat the infection with sea salt soaks.

    When you remove the earrings, you irritated the piercings, and set them back in their healing. You also put in silver jewelry, which isn't good enough for healing piercings. For healing piercings, you need 18k gold or higher, or surgical steel, or titanium. If you leave silver in there, it can irritate your piercings. Also, as the silver tarnishes, the tarnish can dye your piercing holes permanently, black, as they heal. It's called a "tarnish tattoo."

    I'd like you to get your starter studs back in, but to do that, I'd very strongly recommend that you go to a real piercer (like one at a tattoo shop, not one at a Claire's) who can do this in a sterile manner, and in a way that won't damage your piercings more. It'll be very hard or impossible for you to replace jewelry in your swollen ear in a way that won't hurt you more and make things worse, so please see a real piercer.

    To treat the irritation you have now, do sea salt soaks. That's 1/4 teaspoon sea salt in a cup of warm water. Soak the piercing for 5-10 minutes, twice per day. Rinse well, pat dry with a clean cloth. Don't remove the jewelry as you do this, or while the piercing heals. Don't twist or fuss with the jewelry. Give the piercings another 4-6 weeks to heal (again, you set the healing back, so you need to give them extra time now.)

    The crust is normal in a piercing that's this irritated. Don't pick at it. The sea salt soaks will help with that. The swelling is also normal, but you need to treat these piercings with sea salt soaks to get that swelling down and the irritation to go away, so it doesn't turn into an infection.

    For the swelling for now, you can take an anti-inflammatory, do the sea salt soaks, apply ice (wrapped in cloth) to the swollen area. If things don't start to improve in a couple of days, go see a professional piercer for an evaluation, or if that's impossible, see a doctor.
