Ow!!
That Caribbean sun can do a number on anyone. Hope it settled down enough to let you have fun the rest of the cruise. So jealous that you did the Sting Rays. I used to be terrified of them, did the swim in Grand Cayman and now I love them.

It's actually quite easy to take the itch out of a sunburn. Get into the shower, adjust the water to the coolest temperature that you can stand, and let it flow over the sunburned area. As it starts to feel comfortable, move it cooler until you get it to the coolest possible setting, then let it run over the sunburned area for a couple minutes. (Yes, you can shampoo your hair and wash your skin while you are doing this.)

When the sunburned skin feels cool to the touch, get out of the shower, take your towel and PAT the sunburned skin to dry it. Do NOT rub the sunburned skin with the towel, as the friction of rubbing will heat the burned skin and cause it to itch.

Norm.

The other thing you can do - and I sunburn easily - so I consider myself an expert.

Get some 100% Aloe or Noxema skin cream. Put it in the refrigerator for 1 hour (or until its cold). Then put it on your sunburn area.

It will cool your skin and pull the heat almost instantly. Yours doesn't seem too bad, minor 1st degree going into 2nd degree burn.

Shame on your for either not putting sunblock on or wearing a t-shirt over your bathing suit.

Default Bumping - just 'cause I like to stir the pot.

There are alternatives - absolutely true but some guys would do this for a woman. I do it for me.
Today's man is not the man of 10,15,20 years ago. We are finally able to openly take advantage of options that, until recently, have been reserved as effeminate.
I still envy you ladies for the freedom and choice you all have in fashion and aesthetics but I embrace the changes that are finally taking place allowing us gents to be the peacock every now and then. Not saying I'm gonna' paint my nails and put on a full face but a man isn't any less of a man fot taking care if himself.

Well now I was a hairstylist in the California Bay Area for 14 years and I know a lot of men that waxed legs, arms, back, chest and other areas that should remain nameless. As a stylist, I limited my waxing services to the face. Also swimmers and bodybuilders do this type of thing for their sport.

Just make sure your beautician is experienced (a senior or something) and also talk the whole way through it and make sure you don't clench your muscles!
Definetley gets better each time you do it. Used to do it myself but it takes me a long time so I have been shaving out of laziness. Fo those who question WHY? I find it very comfortable and liberating to be free of hair, Not to metion that fresh and clean feeling.

Worth the pain for sure. As far as embarassment ... the people that do this see the same thing all day long and could probably care a less so keep that in mind.

Just shave -- it's quick, easy, and painless.

And this may be a stupid question, but what the devil is a metrosexual? I've heard the term a few times, but don't know what it means.

Metrosexual can best be explained by a picture.

This is a Metrosexual note: the blonde tips, the spray on tan, and the professionally whiten teeth. It all started with the show "Queer eye of the straight guy." A metrosexual is not gay but he takes care of his apperance similar to how a guy man might. Metrosexual men get mani-pedis and facials, spray on tans, teeth whitening, they color their hair, and wear the lastest designer fashions.

Never done the whole "thing" but I used to wax. The first time I waxed my legs I was in Calcutta. I spoke no Hindi and the girl spoke no English. I was in tears and the poor girl looked like she was killing me. But a few waxes later, it hardly hurt at all. A few years ago, I had the hair removal done (I think it is called Lasik Hair removal). It cost a couple thousand for the legs and it took a few months to complete but it was by far the best thing I've ever done. Now I don't have to wax or shave. If I had a daughter, I would do this for a highschool graduation gift. I wish I would have done it in my 20's rather than in my 30's.
