Can anyone recommend a cream or gel that they use to fade surgical scars? I have an old surgical scar that isn’t fading (I have pale skin so scars are really noticeable and don’t go away easily) so I was looking to find something to maybe help a little. I was thinking of trying Bio-Oil but I wasn’t sure if that was any good on surgical scars - seems better for acne or stretch marks.

Silicone sheets / tape is what my plastic surgeon recommended after my surgerys; definitely did a lot more to improve the appearance of my scars than any creams / gels

Silicone sheets and massage with Shea butter every day. Had a breast reduction and I don’t have any scars. Also sunscreen if your scars are visible!!!

Following. Bio oil did nothing for my surgical scars.

Yes I used aeromas scar gel. Also my physical therapist used cold laser on it twice a week for several months. I have a scar from my ear to thyroid from surgery last summer. It’s barely noticeable now.

I am 37 and just started aggressively saving 4 years ago (beyond maxing my 401k). I have around $500k in retirement accounts and $350k in savings and investment accounts. About $200k in equity in my house (half paid off). Beyond maxing my 401k I have 6k/month I save/invest. Ideally want to retire in 8 years (45). What are good options to do with the 6k/month? Right now I just blindly buy mutual funds.

My whole life, I’ve been able to “crack” my jaw (like cracking knuckles). For instance, sometimes, if I open my mouth and open it a certain way, it “cracks.” It feels good and my dentist has never raised concerns.

Last night I did it but this time my left jaw hurts—it hurts if I open my mouth or if I bite. The pain is getting less, but it was still painful.

Any idea as to what happened?

Amex is the only company I've been with so I want to know from others how it's like in other companies. Hive is so slow.

Ask Aida support is so sloppy and they just regurgitate the same information over and over again. Is this an Amex thing or is this just how big data works everywhere?

2) if the reco is to max utilization and be staffed during Ramadan, any advice for balancing fasting + long working hours?
