Dry Skin Hands

Hey guys, thank you so much for watching! Today, we’re going to talk about dry skin. If you follow me on Twitter, you know my sensitive skin has not transitioning into the winter months well at all. But my skin is almost back to normal now, and today we’re going to be focusing on hands. I guess it kind of also works into feet and other really dry spots like maybe your elbows or your knees, but the prime focus is hands. I always moisturize throughout the day, but lately my regular hand creams and lotions just have not been cutting it. So I took to Twitter, and I asked you guys about some suggestions about hydrating your hands over the winter time. I got a lot of suggestions for butters and oils, but unfortunately those are the types of things that I can only really use like right before bedtime. Luckily, I had the most amazing producte to my door. Neutrogena, one of my favorite brands, actually send me this, which is their Norwegian Formula hand cream. This is no joke, no messing around. I mean, this is made for people that endure some of the harshest arctic conditions, so I was thinking, for me, maybe this will work. And, the best part, the biggest word on the whole package is fastabsorbing. They offered to sponsor a seven day challenge for me to see what this cream would do to my hands in seven days. And, I’ll be honest with you, the seven days are not over yet, but I wanted to make this tutorial anyway, because I instantly instantly fell in love with this product, and it has quickly be a part of my daily routine. And my hands are finally back to normal, if not, even better! So, here’s what I do. Open it up here. Mmmm. it smells so good. It’s like a really fresh, kind of a baby scent. It’s so yummy. And all you do is just take a tiny little amount, you don’t need that much at all. It has a really thick texture, but it slips, as you can see, really easily onto your hands. It just glides on. And it absorbs very very quickly. After a couple of seconds. Well, maybe a couple more seconds. Couple more seconds. Couple more seconds. This feels really nice. And, BAM. No oily, greasy film or anything. I can go play with my phone. I can put on clothes. I can open door knobs, without fear of slipping right off. That is the worst when you’re putting on butters or oils or lotions. But, no, I can just go on about my day and about my business. That’s all I need. I use it in the morning, I use it throughout the day, I use it especially at nighttime. I also put it on my feet, and I don’t have to worry about ice skating across hard wood floors. I put it on my elbows and my knees. Oh, and also, hello, red and white packaging stocking stuffer. FOR SURE. You’re going to be seeing this again. I definitely do plan on doing some more winter skincare tutorials. I want to do how to take care of your lips. I want to do another winter skincare for your face. We’re in this together, even though I’m posting tutorials with tips, there’s definitely something that I will for sure leave out or other products that I don’t even know about yet or that maybe aren’t good for my skin, but they’re good for yours! So please if you have any other suggestions, leave it in thements below. If you like this tutorial and want to see more, please give it a thumbs up, share it, find me on social media,and of course don’t et to subscribe. Thank you so much for watching! I’ll see you next time.

DermTV Very Itchy Fingers, a.k.a. Dishydrosis DermTV Epi ‘6

Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause And wee to DermTV. This may be the season for itchy skin, but chances are if it’s your fingers that are itching, it’s not because they’re dry.

Most of the time, itchy fingers are caused by a condition called Dishydrosis and the itch it causes can really drive you crazy. And it’s not just itching that Dishydrosis causes You actually get little bumps on the bottom and sides of your fingers. And the bumps are actually tiny blisters.

Dishydrosis literally means, bad sweating, and it used to be thought that these crazily itchy bumps were filled with sweat. That’s why it was named Dishydrosis. But the fluid isn’t sweat it’s actually serum, which is the clear fluid in your blood.

The mostmon cause of Dishydrosis is extreme stress, although not every outbreak can be linked directly to a stressful situation. On a personal note, I can tell you that I’ve only experienced Dishydrosis once in my life. It was early in my medical training after a very stressful night of being up all night taking care of a lot of very sick patients.

The next morning the hospital dermatologist was making rounds and I showed him my hands, and he said, Boy you must have had a really rough night. So. The itching and bumps both finally go away after a few days. As it gets better, there are these really interesting telltale little collars of dead flaky skin that peel off.

Those tiny matchhead size collars of dead skin get larger. and then smaller. over a few days and are caused by the bubble of serum as it rises through the higher levels of the epidermis. It’s like taking horizontal slices through a sphere starting tiny at the bottom, then getting larger, and finally smaller again.

To treat the itching and bumps, topical cortisone creams and antiitch lotions with menthol are best. If that doesn’t stop the itch, cold water can usually give temporary relief, but never try to stop the itching with hot water. Even though hot water feels good and stops the itch, it also causes the itch toe back worse a few minutes later.

Hand vs. Liquid Nitrogen and the Leidenfrost Effect

Greetings fellow nerds. In this tutorial I’m going to put liquid nitrogen on my hand. I’m not crazy. To show you why I’m not crazy I’m going to first show something called the Leidenfrost effect. I have here a standard laboratory heater plate and I’m going to put some water on it and turn on the heat.

As expected, it’s going to boil. As it heats up it will boil water faster and faster. Eventually it gets so hot that water instantly vaporizes upon hitting the plate. Now when it gets really hot, an interesting effect takes over. Water now just beads up and rolls off the plate. What’s happening is that on contact the water vaporizes so fast that it creates a cushion of steam that lifts up the remaining water drop.

So the water is now riding around on a cushion of it’s own steam. This makes the water last longer and slows down the heat conduction needed topletely vaporize it. This is called the Leidenfrost effect. This effect can be seen at home with a frying pan if you heat it high enough. The Leidenfrost effect also occurs with liquid nitrogen.

As you can see here the liquid nitrogen skirts away as I pour it on the floor without actually soaking into the floor. Liquid nitrogen boils at 196 Celsius. And this laboratory floor is at room temperature. So from the liquid nitrogen’s perspective the floor is super hot.

Here are some drops of liquid nitrogen rolling around on the floor just like the water on the hot plate. As you can see they’re not soaking in. The Leidenfrost effect protects the liquid nitrogen from being instantly vaporized, and consequently the floor from being instantly frozen. Now the Leidenfrost effect does not last forever.

With enough liquid nitrogen the floor is eventually cooled enough that the temperature difference no longer supports the effect and the liquid nitrogen soaks in. So if I do put it on my hand I can only do so for a moment. Nheless, the Leidenfrost effect will protect my hand from being instantly frozen. Alright, so let’s try it.

Let me fill this Dewar with liquid nitrogen. Now if you look very closely, the Leidenfrost effect is happening here too as the liquid nitrogen is not yet contacting the sides of the Dewar but a gas barrier is insulating it.

However the effect will break down eventually. Human tissue is much less tolerant of cold than the floor or this steel Dewar so i won’t be able to put my hand in there for longer than a moment. Alright, the nitrogen is ready. I’m really nervous here, give me a moment to psyche myself up.

Whoa, my hand is ice cold right now. But as you can see the nitrogen did not soak in, and it’spletely fine with no frostbite or other injuries. The plume of mist from the liquid nitrogen shows that a lot of it vaporized to form the gas barrier around my hand. Turning around the experiment.

I can also pour liquid nitrogen on my hand in short spills as long as i give my hand a few moments to recover. This is pretty cold but the Leidenfrost effect prevents the liquid nitrogen from directly contacting my hand and freezing it. As long as my hand is warm enough, I can keep doing this. Although it’s starting to sting right now.


Ha ha ha HAAA! coughs Some words about Dry Ice safety hazards. This tutorial isn’t for kids. It’s really suggestions for science teachers and physics lecture demonstrations. Dry Ice hazard isn’t only frostbite. If you seal Dry Ice in a container, the container can explode.

Doing this intentionally is illegal in some parts the United States. Also, don’t thoughtlessly drink beverages that have Dry Ice in them ’cause even though it’s heavier than water, the little tiny pieces can float to the top and you risk getting frostbite on your esophagus. My trick with chewing up dry ice. I’m willing to take the risk of maybe inhaling a tiny fragment, or getting frostbite on my gums, but you might want to avoid that one.

If you have kids work with Dry Ice they need close supervision to avoid frostbite or any of the other hazards. So mostly enjoy my performance here with the dry ice but think twice before you try doing any of the ones in this tutorial. Oh, you can get frostbitten if you touch dry ice with bare skin, but it’s not THAT cold.

If I pushed hard on it, I would get bit, suddenly get a sting, but as long as you keep moving, Well, it’s a safety hazard but not THAT unsafe. Let’s see how long before i get bit if I hold a little piece in my hand.

ready. One, Two, Three. Ouch! Coke Bottle. And i don’t know how hazardous this is it’s not very hazardous I’m going to take my Swiss Army Knife and poke a hole.

And I’ve got the Slab type of Dry Ice here. So I’ll chop it up into pieces small enough to get in to the coke bottle. wire cutters. even needle nose pliers.

Because we want to get it small enough to fit into. the Coke bottle. And our other ingredient is hot water.

HA ha ha HAAAA! Coughs Ta Da! Now, Carbon Dioxide on contact with water makes carbonic acid, so when you burp after drinking a bunch of Coke and your nose really stings. that is Carbonic Acid turning your mucus membranes in your nose, your nasal system, acidic.

so you can see it’s really really dangerous right I’ve made these for kids birthday parties about the only danger that I can see is if you could let the kids get hold of some bottle caps that don’t have holes in them.

Also dry ice is very dangerous, right Don’t ever put in your mouth and chew it up! Only trained physics demonstrators should ever do stuff like that.
