ANTI-AGING TIP OF THE DAY
Emergency Water Disinfection
In the event of a natural disaster, which may compromise your access to
water from your tap or bottle source, follow these techniques to purify
water for drinking:
* Boiling -– vigorously, for 10 minutes
* Bleaching -– add 10-20 drops of household bleach per gallon of
water, mix well, and let stand for 30 minutes. A slight smell or
taste of chlorine indicates water is good to drink. (Note: do not
use scented bleaches, colorsafe bleaches, or bleaches with added
* Tablets -– commercially available purification tablets
* Solar disinfection, known as SODIS -- a new technique developed by
researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute for Environmental
Science and Technology. Clear plastic bottles are filled with
water and left in the sun. The heat warms the water and the
combination of warm water and ultraviolet radiation kills most
microorganisms. The Institute’s tests showed that 99.9% of the E.
coli in a sample of contaminated water were killed when the sun
heated the water beyond 122F (50C). At that temperature,
disinfection takes about an hour, but placing a corrugated metal
sheet under the bottle can shorten the time. Additional tests
demonstrate SODIS as an effective approach for killing the cholera
bacteria, Vibrio cholerae, and that it could inactivate parasites
including the diarrhea-causing Cryptosporidium.
"One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem
before it becomes an emergency." ~ Arnold Glasgow

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
