When you buy new clothes, you probably want to wear them before hurling them in the laundry. They’re clean, right? At least they appear clean. But that doesn’t mean your skin is safe.
I don’t necessarily like to think about all the other people who have tried on the clothes I merely purchased, but we can’t ignore that it happens. Regardless, the potential germ factor from previous wearers isn’t why you should hold off on wearing new clothes the second you bring them home from the store.
It’s actually the chemicals that you’re uncovering your scalp to by putting on new clothes that you should be worried about — particularly when it comes to clothes that you’ll be sweating in.
If you have sensitive scalp, maybe you’ve even noticed patchy redness after wearing and sweating in new workout clothes. This could be research results of chemicals from the clothes getting into your pores.
According to clothing manufacturing expert Lana Hogue, these are the clothes you should definitely wash right after buying: socks, underwear, undershirts, T-shirts, shorts, summer garbs and swimsuits, if you’re not planning to wear them in water immediately.
Outerwear and event wear are both safe. Basically, anything that you sweat in needs to be washed first. When you sweat, your pores open up, increasing the risk of annoyance from chemicals in the fabric.
No matter where your clothes were manufactured, the various materials are made in different countries. The statutes about chemical use in dres are inconsistent across the world.
For example, some clothes are stimulate with dye that contains formaldehyde resin, which causes skin irritation. Sure, it’s a small amount and wears away with a washing, but even though formaldehyde is a low-level carcinogen, uncovering your skin to it all the time can be dangerous. One of the side effects of these chemicals is an itchy red rash called dermatitis.This includes textiles like cotton as well.
And even if you’re like me and don’t am worried about who has tried on clothes before you, you should probably be aware that there have been cases of louse and other bacterial infections spread in stores on the actual clothing. Gross.
It can be a pain to wash clothes right after buying them instead of wearing them to your next workout class or date, but all I can say is your skin lasts longer than the clothes you buy. It deserves to be taken care of.
Also, you probably don’t want to break out in an itchy red rash on a date. Laundry is your friend.
Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump, hoping to stack his first 100 days with as many accomplishments as is practicable, has relied heavily on the use of executive orders, actions he decried as a 2016 candidate.
“Tears started streaming down his face and he was moaning in excruciating pain…”
When Mr. Timmy strolled into the chiropractic office ofJessica Bullock Scarratt, he had no idea that what started as tears of pain would aim in tears of exhilaration. While he may have left that office impression blessed beyond measure by her kindness, it’s Jessica who says she met an angel that day.
Her viral Facebook post is now touching hearts all across the globe, and it’s exactly the dose of compassion this world needs to hear 😛 TAGEND
Meet Mr. Timmy, the angel that strolled into my office. He stopped in a week ago asking if I could help him with extreme low back pain that is shooting down his leg. He asked the prices etc and stimulated his appointment for this week so he could gather the money. He comes in on Wednesday 30 minutes early for his appointment and is beyond nice and respected. Everything I tell/ ask him, he answers with yes/ no ma’am. He fills my heart with pleasure and happiness simply being in the room with him. After chatting with him, he tells me that he’s been in pain for three years and has been turned away several times for help because he doesn’t have insurance or the money, but he knew “hes to” do something.
I can tell he’s in pain, but didn’t know just how bad until I asked him to lay on the table. Bless his heart, tears started streaming down his face and he was moaning in excruciating pain. He apologized for his tears and I told him not to be sorry and handed him a tissue. I started adjusting him and at first, he moaned with each drop of the table( balling his eyes out in pain now ), but said to keep going if it would help. Then, it started feeling better for him. I hooked him up to the electrical stimulation machine and told him to enjoy some relaxation.
When I came back, he told, “Oh my goodness…this is the best I’ve felt in three years. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” He stood up and realized he could stand up STRAIGHT for the first time in 3 years. THREE YEARS! Those tears of pain turned to tears of relief and gratefulness. Then tears start rolling down my face too…tears I’ve been holding back the entire appointment. He asked when I wanted to see him again and I walked him up front. I told him I wanted to see him the next day( today) and he asked how much because he’d need to find a way to get the money, but he’d be here.
I devoted him back his money and told him nothing. He looked so confused.( He told us he only eats once a day .) He lost it and BALLED his eyes out and I dedicated him a big hug while screaming. He told me I didn’t know what this means to him and that he’ll find a way to pay me and told him to please not worry about it and only to pay me in hugs. He was in pure skepticism. We were ALL screaming. We ALL felt this God moment.
He came back today with a huge smile on his face and a little kick in his step. He was so happy. He was on the road to recovery. His smile lighted up my whole heart. We had collected a box of snacks, a gift card for metro, and a card. When we gave it to him, he started crying again and just kept thanking us over and over. He gave me several hugs and couldn’t believe the love we indicated him after being rejected so many times. I’ve been thinking about him and praying for him non-stop since then. With tears in my eyes while typing this, I share this story with you to say this…you never know what form an angel may come in, but I promise you Mr. Timmy is an angel to me.
You never know what someone is going through until you ask. You never know what a difference you may induce in someone’s life, but I can tell you that Mr. Timmy blessed me far more than I blest him. With all the evil in the world, there is still good….all you have to do is open your heart and share the love.Share

In the Native American community of Blackwater, Arizona, gambling money follows from nearby casinos but personal incomes remain among the lowest in the US. Chris McGreal visits for the last in his series on Americas poorest towns
Chuck Morgan is back where he began. Almost.
There used to be an old build, like a barn, up on the hill there. We lived there and we had no water , no energy , no bathroom. We had an outhouse. We had to live by lamps. Wood stoves. Trucked our own water in by wagon, he told. We had just two big old rooms. A living room and a bedroom together. The whole household there. The other room was a little kitchen.
Morgan is 64 now. In his time hes been a logger in California, fight in Vietnam and sought release in drugs and alcohol, before being drawn back to the small town of Blackwater on the sprawling Gila River Indian reservation in southern Arizona the res, as its known to those who live there.
When he left half a century ago in search of a track out of deprivation, the reservation was best known outside its borders as the home of Ira Hayes, one of six US marines immortalised in the photograph of soldiers creating an American flag over the Japanese island of Iwo Jima in the second world war. Hayes was hailed by presidents and feted across the country. But his decline into alcoholism he was arrested dozens of hours for drunken behaviour and drink-related demise at the age of 32 was often portrayed as a consequence of life on the reservation, although the toll of war and renown may have had more to do with it.
Gila River Indian Community, known on the reservation as the GRIC, is defined to the outside world by something else these days: the highest rate of obesity and diabetes in the United States. Its people are more likely been subjected to more medical analyzes of the disease than any other on countries around the world.
But even that development is being eclipsed by another change. This place is different. So different from when I left, told Morgan. They give you a home now. A free home. My friend got one. They give you it without paying a penny, and free water. Everything started getting different when these casinos came up.
For 20 years, the GRIC has tapped into the wellspring that has reversed the fortunes of Native American communities close to a city big enough to provide a steady creek of punters for slot machine and blackjack tables. Gila River has Phoenixs 4 million residents a few minutes drive away.
The flow of hundreds of millions of dollars each year into Gila Rivers casinos helps money the outlines of a welfare country in a country where the very notion is widely regarded as un-American. Free land and free homes. Its own healthcare system. Regular cash payments to all residents as their slice of the gambling revenues. Even the first Indian reservation television station.
While most young Americans rack up debts getting a university education, Gila River reservation helps pay the bills. For elderly people there are free meals and organised journeys to the cinema.
For all that, Blackwater has been, by one measure, the poorest or at least the lowest income town in the country. According to the US census bureaus American community survey 2008 -2 012 of communities of more than 1,000 people the latest statistics available at the time of reporting the median household income in Blackwater was just $ 9,491 a year. Nationally it was $53,915 in 2012. It has improved more recently to $12,723, but is still less than a quarter of “the member states national” median. It is the final stop in a series of Guardian dispatches about the lives of people trying to make a life in places that seem the most remote from the American Dream.
