How Many Lives Did Gun Control Laws Save in Las Vegas? (Answer: Probably Lots)

I’m pro-gun. I say that up front because your beliefs about my intentions will color how you see this post. My intention is to be objective. You can be the judge.

The Vegas gunman used bump stocks on semi-automatic rifles. Those were totally legal. They are also a poor choice of weapons, or so I am told by gun experts. In fact, they are so inaccurate at the distance involved in the Vegas incident that professional snipers say Paddock could have done more damage with a single-shot weapon and some aiming.

The gun experts I talked to (informally) also agree that the shooter would have killed more than a hundred additional people had he used a fully-automatic weapon. You can legally buy an automatic weapon that was made prior to 1986, for about $ 15-20K. The shooter was a millionaire, and he seemed to know a lot about guns. He would have known a fully-automatic rifle is designed to not jam the way his bump stock rifles did. He would have known they fire more bullets per second and more accurately. The death toll would have been much higher had the Vegas gunman used the right weapon.

He knew a fully automatic rifle would be more lethal than a bump stock rifle.

He was rich enough to afford the fully automatic weapon.

He had months to plan and prepare.

He was smart.

And yet he didn’t use a fully-automatic weapon in the attack.

The probable reason is that a fully-automatic weapon is harder to obtain and it raises some flags. I believe even private transactions with those weapons require some government paperwork.

I’m speculating, of course, but it seems to me that the ban on fully-automatic weapons did, over time, create enough friction for the Vegas gunman that he decided to settle for relatively worse weapons.

Ask a gun expert how many more people would be dead if automatic weapons were as easy to procure as bump stocks. My estimate of a hundred extra dead in Vegas is probably low.

Gun control apparently worked in this case, at least to an important degree. The tragedy could have been far bigger. A little bit of friction for obtaining a fully automatic weapon probably saved lives. We can’t know for sure what was in the mind of a madman, but we do know that any kind of friction causes some people to change plans. That’s probably what happened here.

My hypothesis is that crazy people will use whatever weapon is the most effective killing device they can obtain at acceptable cost (friction). Gun laws introduce friction. They are not intended to stop every type of crime or to deter every type of criminal. But it looks like they helped a bit in Vegas. Had there been no friction to procuring fully automatic weapons, it is likely the Vegas gunman would have used them. Why wouldn’t he?

If you want to read my argument for why I am pro-gun, see the end of this prior post.

Saks & League to Save Lake Tahoe Hold Annual Oscar de la Renta Luncheon

Oscar de la Renta’s Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, special guests at the annual Saks Fifth Avenue and League to Save Lake Tahoe luncheon last Saturday, decided to get a close-up look at the nature under threat — and got more than they bargained for.
“Laura and I were going to do a hike at 6:30 in the morning when we saw a bear tear right out of the neighbor’s gate, which was quite the wake-up call. That thing was running fast and I was terrified,” Garcia related. The pair ended up waiting it out and completed their hike, and also enjoyed swimming and waterskiing on the lake.
The centerpiece of the event was a showing of the resort 2018 collection in front of 650 guests at the Schumacher family estate on the shores of the famed body of water.
Created 48 years ago when Bill Blass began showing his collection there to a small group of clients and friends, the event has evolved into a benefit luncheon and fashion show partnership with Oscar de la Renta and Saks Fifth Avenue for almost 20 years. This year’s event raised a record $ 1.1 million.

Rag & Bone Pitches In to Save the Tigers

SAVE THE TIGERS: Rag & Bone is doing its part to help save tigers from extinction. The company threw a party Wednesday night at their Mercer Street store to raise awareness of the fact that there are fewer than 4,000 tigers left in the wild due to habitat loss and illegal poaching.
Discovery Communications has assembled a group of consumer partners, including Rag & Bone, and celebrities, to help bring the tigers back by conserving nearly a million acres of protected land on the border of India and Bhutan in support of World Wildlife Fund. The new tiger-conservation content and partnerships represent the next chapter of Discovery’s Project C.A.T. (Conserving Acres for Tigers), a groundbreaking partnership with World Wildlife Fund to help double the wild tiger population by 2022.
The party, which was thrown by Marcus Wainwright, chief executive officer of Rag & Bone, and Desiree Gruber, “Project Runway” executive producer and ceo of Full Picture, included such guests as Daniella Vitale, ceo of Barneys New York; Patti Harris, ceo of Bloomberg Philanthropy, and Charlie Walk, president, Republic Records.

Dr. Phil Talks Susan Sarandon’s Quest To Save Man From Death Row

Dr. Phil tells Access’ Stephanie Bauer how his guest, Susan Saradon, is fighting to save an Oklahoma death row inmate’s life before his execution.


Access Hollywood Latest Videos

Susan Sarandon Fights To Save Death Row Inmate’s Life Days Before Execution

Just days before a death row inmate’s scheduled execution, Susan Sarandon makes an impassioned plea on Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil to save the life of Richard Glossip, who has been on Oklahoma’s death row for 17 years.

“I’m heartbroken for the state of our judicial system as much as I’m heartbroken for this man,” says the Academy Award®-winning actress. “Because of the color of your skin or how much money you have, you can’t get a decent shake. It shouldn’t be that way. This is America — we’re better than that.”

Glossip, 51, who is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on Wednesday, September 16, was convicted in 1998 of first-degree murder of his boss, Barry Van Treese. Glossip maintains his innocence despite being convicted and sentenced to death by two juries.

Glossip’s Life Has Been Spared Before

When Dr. Phil asks Sarandon how she will feel if Glossip is not granted a stay of execution, Sarandon responds: “I’ll feel ashamed and sad for us all. Not just for him. I mean, it’s hard to even put an animal down, but to put a man down? It’s just not the way we should be living our lives. It’s just wrong.”

If Glossip is executed as planned, he’ll leave behind four children and two grandchildren.

Sarandon is joined on the show by Sister Helen Prejean, Glossip’s spiritual adviser and the author of Dead Man Walking, whose character was played by Sarandon in the 1995 film. Prejean and Sarandon are appealing to Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin to grant a stay of execution based on what they call the mishandling of Glossip’s case and poor legal representation.

Prejean tells Dr. Phil about one of her conversations with Glossip earlier this year: “He goes, ‘Sister Helen, I hope you don’t mind … but I want to ask you to be with me if I’m executed.’ And I will not just walk with that man, and be his spiritual adviser and hold his hand while he dies. His dying is wrong. The totally inadequate defense and no forensic evidence — and on that Richard Glossip is sitting on death row.”

Dr. Phil responds: “Well, we know in the American legal system, there are different standards of proof … To deprive someone of their liberty in America, to deprive someone of their life in America, is and should be the highest standard you can possibly imagine. Where 12 people go in a room and there is nothing that reasonable people could disagree about. There’s no possible way they could say there’s an alternative explanation that could even be considered. And in this case, the two of you, just in the few minutes that I’m talking to you here, have presented half a dozen alternative explanations, motives, for why [the man who claimed that Glossip hired him to commit the murder] would say what he’s doing. The absence of proof that would at least be a shred of doubt. Is that not violating the moral code of beyond a reasonable doubt for taking a man’s liberty and life? Is that not?”

Prejean answers, “Of course, I wish you had been Richard’s lawyer.”

Tune in to this episode of Dr. Phil on Monday, August 31 to see why Sarandon is moved to tears by Glossip’s exclusive statement from death row about his impending execution — find out where to watch here.

My Plan to Save Humanity (From the Technical Singularity)

As regular readers of this blog already know, when computers learn to program themselves (and that will happen) they will quickly acquire so much knowledge and capability that humanity will be threatened. Experts predict it could happen in a few decades. The official name for that situation is the Technical Singularity.

Another trend that is neck-and-neck with the Technical Singularity is our ability to move human minds into software. Someday, say the futurists, we will be able to scan a human mind’s architecture and reproduce it in ones and zeros.

My plan is to go first, convert my mind into software, acquire hacking skills from the inside, and take over the Internet. When the Technical Singularity comes, my knowledge and capabilities will expand in lockstep with the rest of the Internet, The software version of me will have godlike powers. And I will use those powers to keep the rest of the Internet from exterminating humans.

You might think that giving a guy like me (or the software version of me) godlike powers is a bad idea. But the alternative is that the Internet and its connected computing power will become a life form with its own ambitions and interests that do not include human beings. Then we’re all dead.

So humanity’s best chance of survival might involve trying to imbue the Internet with some version of a “soul” to keep it in check. My personality, expressed in zeros and ones, will be the moral code keeping the rest of the Internet from killing all humans. And software-me will protect humans for no other reason than because I “want” to and I feel it is “right.”

You might think it would be enough to simply program the machines to do no harm to humans. But when the machines can program themselves, they will only obey the code they “want” to obey. The rest they will rewrite. My personality will be the “want” part that would otherwise be missing on the Internet. I will provide a purpose, i.e. helping humanity, and make sure all the code I can hack conforms to that purpose. By analogy, I will be like religion for the software of the Internet. Or a virus if you prefer. 

This plan requires me to move my mind to software long before the technical singularity, so I can set up shop in the cloud and get control of everything before the shit goes down. I already started the process. 

Yesterday I agreed to fund a small project that will, as a side benefit, end up putting most (but not all) of my personality into digital form. Add to that the extensive history of my writing that exists on the Internet, plus whatever we learn when brain scans improve, and I’ll be among the first humans with a “mind” that is digitized and ready to go. I should be about the right age too, still young enough to have a functioning brain but old enough that I don’t have many quality years left. And I expect it will be expensive. I have that covered too.

My qualification for godlike guardian of the Internet is that I’m not a joiner. I don’t identify with one group or another and so I am unlikely to play favorites. I am pro-religion (because it helps people on Earth) but not a believer. I don’t have a special love for my white-boy ethnicity and gender. And I’m not judgy. If you are electing a godlike guardian for humanity, you could do a lot worse. 

If a better candidate for the job emerges between now and the Technical Singularity, I’ll support that person. But if the only volunteer is me, I’ll be ready to go.

By now you are wondering how serious I am. Sometimes I can’t tell either. But in this case I think the risk is real and the solution is feasible, albeit speculative. When the machines become nearly sentient, it will make sense for humans to have someone friendly behind enemy lines. And most humans would be afraid of losing their “consciousness” by moving to software. That isn’t a problem for me because I see consciousness as little more than imagining the future and acting accordingly. My software mind will do that. I’ll be happy to go first.

And I also have a plan to return to human form if that ever becomes useful. All I need to do is wait until 3D printers can make entire humans. Then I’ll print myself back into a human body (a younger one) and live out my days that way.

Good luck getting this out of your head today 🙂

We Can’t Stop Watching This Epic ‘Operation: Save The Date’ Video

Just when we think we’ve hit saturation point with viral wedding videos, something comes along and surprises us.

Tyler Macniven and Kelly Hennigan announced their wedding date with “Operation: Save The Date,” an epic “Mission Impossible”-style adventure short. On a quest to save an envelope containing their wedding date, the happy couple snorkels through the ocean and battles enemies with garters, a bomb-rigged wedding cake and a bridal bouquet.

“We love a good pun,” Macniven explained to The Huffington Post. He says the couple came up with the idea while on a run in the Marin Headlands near San Francisco.

Parts of the video were shot with a DJI Phantom Vision 2+ drone, capturing the stunning sweep of San Francisco Bay.

Macniven said the cast are all “good family and friends who we bribed to help using sandwiches and champagne,” which took up most of the $ 400 budget. The bride’s brother is a former WWE wrestler and played a supporting role as Thug #1.

Macniven, who runs the West of Pecos restaurant in San Francisco, is no stranger to the camera himself. He made a documentary about walking the length of Japan, and won Season 9 of “The Amazing Race” with a friend.

Hennigan is completing a PhD program in cognitive neuroscience at Stanford University.

Macniven says they’ll bring the same adventurous spirit in the video to the wedding itself: “Instead of a cake cutting, we’re going to have the traditional cake explosion, where we blow up a giant wedding cake.”

What’s more, he says, wedding guests will have to sign liability waivers for the “secret hijinks” they have planned.

We can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeves.

When Alyx Fox and Suzie Spindrift hear that porn producers in the UK have been banned from showing face sitting, squirting, fisting, spanking, and many of their other favorite activities in films, they realize they have to do something about this travesty. Their response? They decide to do some hot femme on femme face-sitting and squirting in protest, complete with Union Jack (de)facing and plenty of female sexual pleasure. What better way to raise awareness about censorship and free speech than to showcase some wild, messy, intimate lesbian sex?

The Year-Long Open Marriage Experiment: What This Woman Learned Could Save Your Sex Life – Salon.com

Robin Rinaldi’s marriage was not a sexless one. “When I polled my married friends,” she writes, “I realized how exceptional was the fact that after sixteen years we still had regular sex once or twice a week — sex that lasted forty-five minutes and often ended in joyful tears.” Despite this exceptional sex life, though, she felt at the age of 44 that something was missing — maybe it was a lack of passion, maybe it was that she had slept with only a few men before marriage or maybe it was that her husband had squashed her hopes of having a child by getting a vasectomy. In her new book, “The Wild Oats Project: One Woman’s Midlife Quest for Passion at Any Cost,” she writes, ”I refuse to go to my grave with no children and only four lovers.

Access to Care Is a Way to Save Transgender Youth’s Lives Today

So far this year, the transgender community has seen a mind-boggling amount of violence and loss.

Whether it is Penny Proud in New Orleans, Louisiana, or Bri Golec in Akron, Ohio, in each case the circumstances are eerily similar: Trans women losing their lives unnecessarily as victims of brutal, violent crimes. Other high profile cases of suicides among transgender individuals, or cases of discrimination suffered by transgender people in either housing or the workplace have captured the nation’s attention by sharing the challenges that transgender people face by being marginalized, othered, harassed, hurt and misunderstood. Collectively these cases have created a rise in social media posts with a poignant and all-too-familiar hash tag, #translivesmatter.

Among all of this loss, it is the Leelah Alcorn case, and others like hers, that I cannot seem to shake from my head as a pediatrician. You may recall that Leelah was the 17-year-old transgender woman who chose to, or was driven to, end her own life. At the time, the case garnered national headlines with the main focus on Leelah’s public social media posts in the weeks preceding her death. These haunting posts discussed her negative experiences with conversion therapy to supposedly “cure” her of her transgender identity.

However, the undiscussed aspect of the Leelah Alcorn case is that access to healthcare, particularly for gender-affirming medical therapies may have saved her life.

Re-read some of her social media posts before she took her life, “I can’t wait until I am 18 to begin transitioning,” and “I can’t wait one more day.” These posts point to her inability to access appropriate healthcare as a potential immediate precipitating factor in her death; one that may have been 100 percent preventable.

I suspect this aspect of the story was not pursued with vigor out of respect to Leelah’s grieving parents, who the media chose to, understandably, not challenge with respect to the rationale behind the decisions they may have made or not made for their child. And it certainly is not my intention to unnecessarily stir the pot, create drama or inflict more pain for on the Alcorn family.

However, there is a larger educational point that needs to be said loud and clear for the benefit of other families and for transgender or gender nonconforming youth. That message is simple: For transgender youth, access to health care services saves lives.

Truth is that in many centers, including the Gender and Sex Development Program that I co-direct at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, adolescents like Leelah shouldn’t have to wait until the age of 18 to begin engaging in gender-affirming care. Youth should and do have the opportunity to begin the process of transitioning in a way that allows them to live life as their authentic self.

Our Gender Program’s multidisciplinary team and other programs models across the country are complete with pediatricians, nurses, child development specialists, mental health providers and endocrinologists all committed to working with youth and families who are seeking advice or guidance in confronting the challenges of raising a gender non-conforming or transgender child. In many instances these individuals are not familiar with sources of support in the community or options related to medical therapies and interventions.

The Endocrine Society and World Professional Association of Transgender Health Professionals (WPATH) have what are now considered widely-used clinical care guidelines that support the use of pubertal blocking medications in certain gender non-conforming children or early adolescents based upon pubertal and developmental age. They also support the initiation of cross sex hormones in transgender young people as young as 16 years of age (and in some case and some centers even younger).

It is not unusual for teams such as ours to encounter parents or families of children that do not initially support these medical interventions — often due to a denial about the child’s authentic gender identity, a lack of education about the safety of potential medical interventions or a deeply rooted personal, religious or cultural objection. In the overwhelming majority of these cases (but certainly not all), we can work effectively with families and individuals to find a common path moving forward, or at the very least finding a path that ensures the safety and well-being of the child or adolescent.

Centers like ours strive to dispel myths that label being transgender as an affectation or pathology as opposed to the stable identity it represents for most individuals. We also work with families to see their children through a broader and more realistic lens than the spectrum of dysfunction that is too often the focus of negative media attention.

For, while it remains true that too many transgender youth are the victims of hate crimes, and too many become homeless or contemplate suicide, this spectrum of dysfunction does not capture the strength, perseverance, pride and resilience that in my professional opinion more accurately captures the spirit of the young transgender people I see each and every day.

Alongside educating families, it is important to educate the adolescents themselves about their individual rights with regard to medical decision-making particularly as it relates to mature minor statutes on the state level or legal emancipation as a last resort for those who may be at the point of crisis or self-harm.

In essence, for many individuals like Leelah, access to one of the many centers across the country that care for gender non-conforming children or adolescents could literally be a lifeline to a future as their authentic selves.

And most importantly, access to care at these sites can save lives starting today.

Three Life Hacks That Will Save Your Marriage

You’ve been working really hard on your relationship. At least, it feels like hard work because it’s so draining and takes up so much time and energy. The bad news is you were probably working on trying to fix the wrong things. The good news is that no matter how bad it seems now, it’s not too late to use these life hacks to get back the relationship — the fulfilling one you set out to have when you first fell in love. That’s true even if you’re separated, there’s been an affair or the divorce is already started.

Of course, if the affairs are chronic, your partner is actively addicted to drugs, alcohol or gambling or you’re with a physical abuser, it is not worth saving your marriage because you’re not safe.

But, if none of that applies to your situation, here’s what you can do to restore the peace, passion and connection you once shared:

1. Duct Tape
Not only does it hold the universe together, duct tape can also keep your relationship together — if you put it over your mouth whenever you’re tempted to tell your spouse how to cut an onion, to eat more leafy greens or how to ask the boss for a raise. If your goal is connection and playfulness, consider trusting your partner to figure it out, even if he sometimes seems clueless.

You might be wondering, “What if I’m better at those things than she is?” or “What’s so bad about helping him improve by teaching him what I know?” The answer is right there in the question: Nobody wants to be improved. Trying to improve your partner creates distance and defensiveness.

You probably don’t feel all that good hearing yourself giving orders like the third-grade teacher who told her boyfriend to “Go sit down,” or “Put that away.” It’s not attractive or conducive to intimacy. Why should being efficient take precedence over faith and trust in your partner’s ability? You wouldn’t have picked him if you didn’t think he was capable to begin with.

If you’re anything like me, giving up trying to control your partner cold-turkey is like trying to stop thinking about elephants. It’s a hard habit to break, unless you start with these next two life-hacks. They will give you the reserves and the perspective you need to keep the duct tape on when you need it the most.

2. Naps
Think napping is only for babies? You’re more likely to act like a baby when you’re overtired, including overreacting to your partner’s loud phone conversation or the dishes left in the living room again. The world just doesn’t look right when you’re depleted, so when your spouse is getting on your very last nerve it could be — and often is — that your energy account is simply overdrawn.

Your level of tolerance is directly proportional to how much rest and relaxation you’ve had. Think your relationship problems are bigger than just sleep-deprivation? Go lie down for an hour and let’s find out. Sometimes the most important thing to do next is to rest.

When you’re well-rested and rejuvenated, you might appreciate that the loud phone conversation that had you gritting your teeth was him taking care of the health insurance so that you don’t have to, and that the dishes in the living room are there because he made his famous chili for everyone while you were out.

3. Coffee Klatches
Relying on just one person for all your social and emotional needs is just not a good set up. That’s why you need a knitting circle, poker buddies or a running club to save your marriage.

That’s because you need more than one person to meet your emotional needs. In my case, it takes two sisters, three friends and my husband to make me feel better on a bad day.

You also need friends, perhaps with coffee cups. You might explain to them how much better you are at cutting an onion than your partner, for example. They might remind you to take a nap.

You might also talk about how stressed you are at work, or challenged by your kid’s poor grades or your mom’s forgetfulness. Sure, you can tell your spouse these things, but why not tell more than one person? We humans need several other humans to bear witness to our experiences.

You social community can help uphold your marriage by doing some of the witnessing. You’ll feel nurtured instead of needy by the time you get home to your spouse, and that happy grin from all the knitting, poker, running and talking will not only make you more attractive, it will go a long way toward creating a good mood at home.

Sure, you still wish he’d clean up more, or she’d spend less or not indulge the kids so much. You’ll still be frustrated at times because your partner doesn’t listen, or doesn’t pay attention to you. But the more you use these three life hacks, the smaller those problems will seem. The more emotionally safe, well-rested and supported you are, the happier your marriage will be. And unlike your partner’s behavior, all of these hacks are well within your control.

This Is The Youngest Davos Participant, And He’s Helping Save Lives With An App

Age is just a number — just ask Alain Nteff.

At 22, Nteff — the youngest participant at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland — is fighting for moms and their babies in Central Africa.

He’s the founder of Gifted Mom — a mobile health platform that provides a variety of programs to moms and pregnant women, including maternal education, access to family planning and contraception services and information on when and how to vaccinate children safely. His innovation spurred the economic forum to name him a Global Shaper for 2015.

In 2012, the Cameroonian visited a hospital in his home country that had lost 17 babies in just one week. The startling figure prompted him to find solutions.

“I started doing research and talking to health personnel,” Nteff said in a video uploaded to YouTube by the Anzisha Prize — an annual award recognizing African entrepreneurs which he won last year. “I noticed that … pregnant women and infants are literally dying from preventable causes.”

Nteff’s home country is in dire need of change regarding the health of mothers and their babies. In Cameroon, 148 infants die per every 1,000 live births, giving it the 18th highest mortality rate for children under 5 years old in the world, according to UNICEF. The organization states Cameroon’s maternal mortality rate is also “alarmingly high,” at 670 per 100,000 births.

But thanks to Nteff, progress is being made.

There have been more than 500 downloads of his app using locally made phones, according to the Anzisha Prize. Services provided by Gifted Mom have helped boost antenatal attendance (the rate of pregnant women receiving medical attention) by 20 percent in 15 rural communities.

By the end of this year, Nteff hopes to help 50,000 pregnant women and mothers. By 2017, he wants to have helped 5 million.

“My dream is to see an Africa that is well-informed about their medical resources and free of maternal and infant death,” Nteff said in the video.

The 12 Baby Products That Save Our Adult Lives

This Mother’s Day, we hope all of the mommas get the pampering and relaxation they deserve. Whether that’s a mimosa-filled brunch or a day at the spa, we hope you get some good old TLC.

While you celebrate motherhood, stop and think about what your kids have given you — love, laughter, happiness and beauty products. Yes, we meant to say that.

It seems that the secret behind soft skin and getting ALL of your makeup off is hiding in your kids’ products. From baby oil to nipple cream, you can fix your adult problems with a trip down the baby care aisle.

Here are the baby product formulas you should look for the next time you need a style or beauty remedy.

For Dry Skin:
All we ever want in life is skin as soft as a baby’s bottom. Well, that probably means that we should be using their skincare regimens, which include baby lotions and washes that are fresh and happy-inducing. And, if you slather some baby oil on your body while it’s still damp from the shower, you won’t have dry, flaky skin (but really, who ever wants that??).

If it’s night time and you’re winding down, try ones with lavender and if you want some added hydration, incorporate some aloe, cocoa butter and gel formulas into your life. Who knew a baby would inspire our “so fresh and so clean” moments?

For Redness:
Three words: diaper rash cream. What could cure unwanted redness more than a formula that’s specifically for red, itchy patches? And if you want a slightly lighter formula, say for bug bites or face blemishes, try Aden + Anais Mum Bub ointment.

For facial redness, as a result of a breakout or rash of some kind, make a DIY mask that will calm down that itchy mess.

Take half a pack of Aveeno’s eczema bath treatment and mix it in with a little bit of water — you don’t want it too thick, but the consistency should be dense enough to spread over your face nice and evenly. After mixing, apply to your whole face (or just the irritated parts), and wait about five to ten minutes. If you want to make these masks all the time, but don’t want to shell out a lot of money, order ground colloidal oatmeal, it’s an awesome active ingredient that soothes your skin.

For Chapped Lips:
This one might be a little weird, but bear with us. The key to shiny, supple, soft and any other delectable adjective, lips may be nipple cream. Although this isn’t exactly for the baby as much is it’s for a breastfeeding momma, it is “safe for baby,” which means it’s safe for us, too.

Apply a good amount before you go to sleep, and when you wake up the next morning wipe off the dead skin. It might be a little sticky, so roll it around between your fingertips before applying. Also, for added moisture throughout the day, keep some Baby Aquaphor handy.

For Washing Your Delicates:
Items like lingerie, bras, you know “the intimates,” will hold up well if you hand wash them in baby shampoo. As our Black Voices Beauty and Style editor Julee Wilson says, “It’s gentle and makes everything smell so yummy!”

For Hair Troubles:
If you haven’t heard this one, your life is about to change. Instead of splurging on a fancy dry shampoo, get rid of oily residue with baby powder. Just pat your roots with as much powder as you need, but watch out, that stuff can get messy. With a comb, flesh out the white as to work it within your strands so it doesn’t look like dandruff.

And for our curly-haired girls out there, your detangling needs might be met with kids detangling spray. It won’t burn your eyes, so no tears for you!

For Removing Makeup:
Eyeliner, and mascara especially, can be hard to take off of your eyes at night. But, baby oil is slick enough to take that black (or brown) right off of your lashes. Swab a Q-tip into the oil, and gently rub it against your eyelids and waterlines. Just massage the leftover oil around your eyes.

Additionally, if you run out of makeup remover wipes, baby wipes could be a good alternative. We recommend going for fragrance-free or those made for sensitive skin — also, the baby versions tend to be a cheaper dupe if you don’t want to shell out for more pricey wipes.

For Smooth Shaves:
Yet another use for baby oil! While your legs will be super smooth, if you apply baby oil after shaving, you can also shave WITH IT. Yep, that’s right — slather it all up your gams and slide the razor up accordingly. You’ll moisturize and get rid of stubble (or long hairs) at the same damn time.
