A lot has been spoken on the fragile body part, ‘belly’. From decreasing belly fat to the transformation of belly during pregnancy, much has been talked regarding stomachs. But the overall show stealer, the belly button has been ignored strangely over the years. To an extent that most of us have been cleaning it the wrong way for years.

According to a guaranteed dermatologist, Dr. Alexandria V. Booth:
But have you even wondered whether your method of cleaning is actually right?
“Health providers have removed ‘growths’ from belly buttons that turned out to be a mix of bacteria, dirt, sweat, soap, lotions, and lint. Talk about an embarrassing doctor’s visit-they go in for what they think is skin cancer and find out it’s just years of dirt.”
According to study from North Carolina State University, the average navel is swarming with 67 different species of bacteria. Eww!
According to research from North Carolina State University…
So, how to clean it?
Simply showering will eliminate some germs, lint, etc. There’s no extra cosmetic or soap required. Showering keeps it pretty clean and infection-free. Digging in once a week with a cotton swab that has soap and water or rubbing alcohol on it works wonders as well.
Again, no creams, no oils, no lotions. A soapy washcloth once a week will do the job in the perfect way.
In case even this doesn’t work out..
Visit your primary care doctor or dermatologist immediately. They’ll dig in with the proper process and equipment.

Let’s read about what exactly happens when we forcefully pop out pimple and also the right way to remove a pimple without leaving a scar.
Before the pop
The blemish that you see on one sudden day, has actually been brewing for quite some time under the surface of your skin.
A dermatologist Dr David E. Bank said, “What many people don’t know is that it can take about eight weeks from the time a pore gets blocked to the time it erupts on the skin in the form of a pimple. In effect, by the time you are painstakingly applying topical products to a pimple that has broken out on your skin, you are about eight weeks too late.”
Before you pop out a pimple, you should know its type.
What Happens When You Forcefully Pop Out A Pimple
It is important to know the type because it will help you with an easy treatment of the same.
They appear as dark-colored, flat clogs, looking like plugs in the skin. They don’t hurt much until you pop them out and are also more visible than feel-able.
These are white, tiny, dome-shaped bumps on the skin and have no visible opening to the outside. They too don’t hurt and are easily visible and feel-able as well.
These are generally of skin color or red bumps. And there’s no visible liquid or pus in them. Papules have a size of lesser than five millimetres. They are sometimes painful and sometimes painless.
Pustules are the solid bumps filled with pus. They start out red having a yellow top and become crusty later. You can easily see the pus in them and these are usually tender to touch.
These are larger than pustules and papules, i.e. more than five millimetres. They are usually painless when they are skin colored, but when the color changes to red or yellow, they become painful. They grow very quickly.
This is why you shouldn’t pop out a pimple:
Acne causes the skin to tighten around the opening of a pore, which traps the acne inside. The acne continues to grow and multiply but does not flow out towards the surface of the skin.
And when you squeeze a pimple, the wall of the pores gets injured.
The inflammation signals which are produced by the acne bacteria reach the bloodstream that creates more inflammation. And if you squeeze the pus and oil, the skin will start growing over the wound, which will trap the bacteria inside. And instead of a nasty pimple, you will soon have a nasty nodule or cyst on your skin. Therefore, it is not a good idea to pop your pimple.
What to do instead?
1. Benzoyl peroxide – It is the world’s most frequently used antiseptic for the skin. This chemical product fizzes and foams and also kills the bacteria of acne in two different ways. One of its components is hydrogen peroxide which releases oxygen and slows down or even kills the bacteria of the acne.
And the another component is benzoic acid which makes it impossible for the acne bacteria to use glucose in the form of their cellular fuel. And even if they survive, they eventually have to go into a dormant state.
2. Tea tree oil – Although, it takes as long as a day to do the job, this oil is an herbal extract that also helps in killing acne bacteria. It makes pimples less noticeable and lighter right away. But some people might turn allergic to it since it is a plant product. Both of them can be applied as cream or gel.
Many of us tend to lie down or just chill after eating or having a dinner or lunch. But doing this habit can have a negative effect in our health.
Here’s the 5 things you should never do after eating:
*If you go to bed after eating, chances are you will experience bloating and discomfort because this will cause your stomach to burn during the night.
According to a study, people who tend to wait for a longer period of time to go to bed after having a meal had less risk of experiencing a stroke. So do not eat at least a few hours before going to bed.
*Wait a couple of hours after having meal if you want to smoke. Smoking immediately after having a meal is almost the same to smoking 10 cigarettes at once. This can put you at higher risk of developing a bowel and lung cancer.
3. EAT FRUIT
*We should consume fruit before a meal, on an empty stomach according to experts. This is due to the fact that fruits require different enzymes in order to digest. you can get the maximum benefits of all the nutrients, fiber, and other sugar by consuming the fruit when your stomach is empty while eating fruit after a meal can cause burping, indigestion, and heartburn.
*Having a shower right after having a meal can increase the blood flow in the hands and legs, which in turn reduces the blood flow in the stomach. This will weaken your digestive system and cause stomach pain.
5. DRINK TEA
*Do not drink tea right after having a dinner because it can interfere with the iron absorption. The tea has a tannic acid in its content which can bind with protein and iron in our food. Many studies proved that in most cases this lead to 87% decrease in absorption of iron. Deficiency of iron can cause anemia, thus causing poor appetite, cold feet and hands, weakness, dizziness, extreme fatigue, and pale skin.

A 31-year-old identified as Muhammad Abubakar, self confessed Boko Haram member, on Thursday said his hand and leg were chopped off because he was planning to surrender and quit the battle in Sambisa forest.
Mr. Abubakar disclosed this to journalists in Maiduguri during a briefing organised by Lucky Irabor, the Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, to update journalists on ‘Operation Rescue Finale’.
Mr. Abubakar said he was punished because of his decision to renounce his membership of the group and embrace peace.
“I had told a friend, Hassan Dan-Guduma, that I was going to surrender as the movement had no meaning to me anymore.
“Hassan Dan-Guduma initially bought my idea but later betrayed me. Shortly after our discussion, he went and came back with three others whom I am sure he must have told them about our plan to surrender.
“They said I was planning to exposed them to the Nigerian Government, so they did all this to me.
“After they chopped off my right hand and left leg, they threw me into a culvert where I was left struggling, until soldiers came and rescued me.
“All I can say is that all we had been told by Boko Haram leaders, were lies and misleading. I never joined them to kill anyone,” he said.
Lucky Irabor, the Theatre Commander, said Mr. Abubakar was still undergoing interrogation. “You can see what they did to one of their own because he decided to quit,” said Mr. Irabor.
