I got a mild sunburn during my trip to the mountains. I bought a bottle of moisturizer cream named Oil of Olay. On the bottle was marked in big letters “ultra hydratant”,”ultra moisture.” Oh good I thought and slathered it on my face.
A few hours later the sunburn had got worse and my face was painful. Lots more cream. I woke up to find extreme sunburn and much pain. Lots more cream. I was confused as I have just been through the blazing Okinawa Summer with no real problems yet a few hours in the Sierras has apparently scorched my face.
Anyway after 2 days of applying loads of cream, my face is covered in some kind of crud and I begin to suspect that something is not right. I look at the bottle and way down at the bottom in small print is marked “shampoo.”
Lots of concentrated shampoo is very bad for your skin. It is caustic.
Always read the small print!
