How To Tell If You Have A Heat Rash

Summer weather does some weird things to your skin: You might get sunburnt; you tend to get more bug bites; and if things are really sweltering, you could even get a heat rash. Usually heat rashes are NBD, but that doesn't mean they're not annoying to deal with or freaky to see on your skin (or your kid's).

"Heat rash" is sort of a catchall, layman's term for a medical condition called miliaria, which is a "skin eruption that develops after being too hot," says Heather Rogers, MD, a dermatologist in Seattle. When you're too hot, and your skin is covered by clothing or thick lotions, then sweat can't leave your skin, so you get a rash, Dr. Rogers says. Babies tend to get heat rashes a lot, because they don't have developed sweat ducts, so the sweat can easily get trapped under their skin, she says. Adults can get heat rashes too, though.

You may be likely to get heat rash on humid days, if you perform intense physical exercise, or if you wear too much clothing in an especially hot environment, according to the Mayo Clinic. And you don't have to be outside in direct sunlight to get heat rash, says Janejira Chaiyasit, DNP, nurse practitioner at ColumbiaDoctors Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Group, the faculty practice of Columbia University School of Nursing. "It can be due to exposure to indoor UV lights, or just in a very hot and humid environment, and even with strenuous activity that causes you to sweat profusely," Chaiyasit says.

A heat rash generally shows up on the trunk of your body, your chest, or your arms, Chaiyasit says. Dr. Rogers adds that there are three types of heat rash, the most common being miliaria crystallina. This can look like small, clear-to-white water blisters on your skin, she says. The bubbles might also resemble tiny water droplets, Chaiyasit says. "These tiny blisters are filled with sweat that is being blocked from exiting the pore at the very top of the skin, and break very easily," Dr. Rogers says. Most people will just get the rash, and not have any other symptoms, she says.

The more severe kind of heat rash is called miliaria rubra, or "Prickly Heat," Dr. Rogers says. This happens the same way as other heat rashes do, but it technically occurs a bit lower in the epidermis, she says. As the name suggests, people might feel itchy or prickly sensations on their skin, and get red bumps. "The rash itself is uncomfortable and associated with a burning or stinging sensation that is tolerable, similar to sunburn," Chaiyasit says.

In extreme cases, you can get sweat trapped in the dermis, the layer below your epidermis, which causes milaria profunda, Dr. Rogers says. "As the sweat is trapped in the dermis, people develop large, firm, skin-colored nodules under the skin and at times significant fatigue," she says. It sounds scary, but she says you'd have to spend hours doing physical activity in the heat to develop this type.

The good news is pretty much all heat rashes go away on their own once you get somewhere cool, Chaiyasit says. "However, if the rash is continuously exposed to more sweating and heat, it can continue to persist, and you can run the risk of developing a skin infection and damage to the sweat ducts," she says, adding that you'd have to see your doctor to get an antibiotic or steroid cream to clear it up.

If you're coming home from a long day at the beach, or peeling off your leggings after hot yoga and notice a heat rash, it's going to be okay — even though it does look momentarily freaky.

Taking a cool shower will typically help, Dr. Rogers says. It's also a good idea to wear loose-fitting clothes, limit your exercise, and stay out of the heat, she says. In other words: Be cool. Don't be all...uncool.Read more at:prom dress shops | prom dresses uk

THE FASHION INDUSTRY ISN’T JUST BENDING GENDER NORMS, IT’S OBLITERATING THEM

We hear a lot of talk about gender these days. Terms like gender-bender, transgender, gender equality, and gender norms are commonplace. Compared to conversations that took place just a decade ago, we can easily see a shift in public opinion and conversation when it comes to gender. The stereotypical male and female from the fifties is a thing of the past, and one can only guess how what was seen as a gender norm will hold up in future generations. If the fashion industry has anything to say about it, there will be no gender norms when it comes to the wardrobe choices humans adorn themselves with.

Fashion for both men and women is radically changing. While it may have been a revolutionary act for actresses like Marlene Dietrich or Katherine Hepburn to don trousers in the thirties, seeing men wear dresses, blouses, skirts, or lingerie in the new millennium shocks, stuns, and offends many. While female celebrities have broken the barrier and have worn clothes typically associated as male attire for approximately a century, the wall is just now coming down for men’s clothing. Male celebrities such as David Bowie, Kanye West, Jared Leto, Jaden Smith, Kurt Cobain, Brad Pitt, R. Kelly, Chris Brown, Marc Jacobs, Vin Diesel, and Mos Def have all been photographed wearing dresses. For some, public opinion regarding their sexuality suffered for it.

There’s a growing trend in menswear with more floral patterns, ruffles, lace, and fabrics traditionally associated with feminine styles gracing men’s runway pieces. Beyond material choices, many designers such as Palomo Spain, Vivienne Westwood, Vejas, and more are embracing gender-bending or gender neutral styles. Fashion has always been about creativity, pushing the envelope, and thinking outside of the norm, and today’s fashion show is taking gender to a new place. Ironically, many ancient styles of dress included tunics or togas that were worn by both sexes, yet it has taken centuries to blur the gender lines that have delineated clothing choices far too long.

Many people in society seem to be uncomfortable when they see men wearing skirts, dresses, or other attire designated as feminine. The sight of men or boys in feminine clothes makes people ask questions that they may feel uncomfortable asking.

First, when people bend gender roles, the question that is left is what is gender exactly. Is someone less of a man if he wears a dress? The same question was asked about women who wore pants. Gender-bending is happening on a more public and prevalent level than ever before, and many are simply uncomfortable with it. Some find it sinful to wear clothes associated with the opposite gender based upon religious beliefs and the scriptures they were raised to believe.

Do clothes really define sexuality or gender? Will wearing pants or a dress make someone less of their gender or if you wear clothes that were assigned to your gender do you become more masculine or feminine? In a world where more gender confirmation surgeries are taking place than ever before, how does clothing fit in? Many trans people describe the personal level of discomfort they had from wearing clothes associated with the gender they were born with How would gender neutral clothes help those who are trans? If clothes were no longer associated with a gender, would many issues regarding gender simply resolve?

Society is dictated by fashion and in nearly every aspect of public life, people are expected to dress in a way others deem as appropriate. There is no question that the world of fashion has always found society’s limits, tested them, and then moved the boundary line even further. If fashion has its way, there will no longer be gender-appropriate clothing.

What are your thoughts about that? What do you think when you see male celebrities wearing skirts or dresses? Is your first thought to question their sexuality? Do you feel men who wear dresses are less masculine than their male counterparts who dress in stereotypical menswear?Read more at:http://www.marieprom.co.uk | http://www.marieprom.co.uk/formal-dresses-uk

Shraddha Kapoor and Athiya Shetty show us how to wear metallic without going overboard

Metallics first began to make itself felt in Milan when Missoni showcased his metallic and layered knit looks at Milan Fashion Week in 2016, but it picked up the pace when Dries Van Noten during his 100th show in Paris in March this year showed the world designs of beautiful metallic tailoring. Ever since the trend has caught on big with celebrities and that includes our Bollywood beauties as well. From Deepika Padukone to Alia Bhatt, almost everyone has tried it and the latest ones to nail metallics are Shraddha Kapoor and Athiya Shetty.

The actress who was seen at an event rocked colourful holographic separates from Nor Black Nor White. The Ok Jaanu actress who picked up the statement-making pieces from their latest collection styled the bomber jacket and the pleated skirt well with a grey T-shirt.

Her accessory game was strong too with a pair of powder blue Christian Louboutin heels and earrings from Valliyan. The look was absolutely spot on and we aren’t surprised since it was curated by celebrity stylist Shaleena Nathani. She has in the past put up stellar looks for Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma in metallics. Even celebrity hairstylist Franco Vallelonga did a good job with voluminous curls and celebrity make-up artist Shraddha Naik complemented it with a dewy-faced make-up and a pink pout. We love this look!

Athiya Shetty, on the other hand, was seen promoting her upcoming film Mubarakan in a mix and match look. We like how celebrity stylist Ami Patel paired the white embroidered shirt with a signature metallic skirt by Amit Aggarwal and added some drama with the lovely metallic belt.

A pair of golden heels, berry lips and straight hair rounded out her look. We like what we see, especially the skirt made from Patola sari.

We think both of them did well. Whose look do you prefer?Read more at:cocktail dresses | formal dresses
