How to Treat a Wind Burn

After a long day skiing on the slopes or jogging in frigid weather, you may notice you have developed dry, red, swollen skin, also known as wind burn. Wind burn is caused by cold wind and low humidity, leading to cracked, irritated skin that burns. This painful skin condition can be treated by applying moisturizer, gel, or ointment to soothe your skin. You can also care for the wind burn so it heals properly. Make sure you take steps like wearing a face mask or other protective gear to prevent getting wind burn so you can enjoy the great outdoors without having to worry about dry, irritated skin.

How to Paint Cornhole Boards

If you love playing cornhole but don’t want to buy an expensive pair of boards, make and paint your own. Once you’ve assembled the basic wooden boards, prepare the wood by filling, sanding, and priming them. Determine how glossy you want the boards to be and then use a brush or roller to apply the paint. Always let the boards dry completely before adding coats of paint. Embellish your cornhole boards with designs, decals, or stickers.

How to Deal with Subtle Bullying

Subtle bullying may not be as easy to spot as outright name-calling or physical aggression, but it can be just as upsetting and isolating. Subtle bullying may include expressing “fake” compliments, being excluded from group activities on purpose, or having one’s reputation or work sabotaged. If this is happening to you, you can help counter it by acting more confidently. Also, distance yourself from the bully and rally up a support system. Learn what your rights are and talk to someone who can help you take a stand against the bully.
