Not true. The effect is temporary - your pores go back to normal as soon as your skin reaches its regular temperature.

I agree. I've battled adult acne for so long, nothing but hormonal medications work! And some potent topical ointments.

Cold water is EXCELLENT for your hair!! It helps to close the cuticle and seal in moisture from the conditioner — which helps your hair look shiny and healthy. If you have frizzy hair it also helps keep the frizz down

It is more likely to help prevent catching a cold. This is even scientifically assessed, and there is some evidence to it.

Pores can't close. Good skincare and diet (no sugar!), vit A and zinc,+ exercise can reduce clogging which makes pores seem smaller.

Sugar does not cause acne. Chocolate does not cause acne. Coffee does not cause acne. Acne is not in any way "caused" by anything you ingest. If you really want to deal with acne, there are medications you can take, or use skin care products that force your skin to exfoliate.

This works on bug bites too. The deodorant MUST contain aluminum. I work for a major cancer hospital. Doing this will NOT cause cancer, but I do not recommend using antiperspirant with aluminum under your arms.

I think that doing anything that makes you believe the pain is mitigated will mitigate the pain. If has also been shown that people who do sports regularly better endure pain, even though the pain in the same. The mind if quite powerful!

Personally, I suck on sugar free cough drops. However, tickling could also be due to the growth of bacteria or inflammation of the larynx. Gargling with warm water and sea salt will help in this case too, because sea salt is a natural antiseptic and promotes healing

Sneezing is your body's way of removing an irritation from your nose. A sneeze works by "resetting the system—like Control-Alt-Delete" on a PC. For gosh sakes.... go ahead and sneeze!!

This is a fail beyond measure. It would have more helpful to recommend dipping your head in ice water
