After consumers complained of being burned, literally, by the New Skin All- Natural Healing Lotion, state and federal officials have halted sales of the Chester County-made product. The state Health Department announced yesterday that it had embargoed dozens of bottles of the lotion made by Frank Lampley at his Glenmoore horse farm. Officials said the lotion had more than a little in common with horse liniment. The embargo prevents Lampley from selling the lotions until a hearing Monday afternoon in Harrisburg on their safety, said Jack Ogun, director of the Health Department's division of drugs, devices and cosmetics.

No one can come up with a tidy little label for Lotion's often-unwieldy pop songs, but the New York quartet - playing tonight at the Khyber Pass - has a fan in reclusive American novelist Thomas Pynchon. According to front man/guitarist Tony Zajkowski, the writer showed up at one of the band's shows in Cleveland, noticed that bassist Bill Ferguson was reading a copy of Pynchon's epic Gravity's Rainbow, and revealed who he was. "I thought he would be a little stiff, maybe a real writer type, when I first heard of him," says Zajkowski by phone from his New York apartment.

A tractor-trailer leaked a large amount of fragrant hand lotion across several Montgomery County towns yesterday morning, and the ensuing cleanup snarled rush-hour traffic on normally congested Plymouth Township roads through the afternoon. The driver of the big rig, Mark Whitehouse, 40, of Maxatawny, Berks County, did not realize he was losing the moisturizer until he pulled onto Ridge Pike off exit 7B of the Blue Route around 5 a.m. He stopped at the Montenay Energy Resources-owned trash-to-steam plant off Alan Wood Road, Plymouth Police Sgt. Karen L. Mabry said.

I'm trying to understand when suntan lotion got weird. I remember the days when baby oil and vinegar counted as suntan lotion. Yes, you read that correctly. The Flying Scottolines used to go to the Jersey Shore for two weeks every summer, and Mother Mary would mix baby oil and red wine vinegar in a bottle before we left for a day at the beach. I have no idea where she got the recipe. Maybe the Mayo Clinic. Or the Mayonnaise Clinic. Anyway, we would slather on baby oil and vinegar, dressing ourselves like a salad.

Tanya Hepler said she came to Avalon from central Pennsylvania for a few days in the sun. And though she had a tan when she arrived at the beach, she was determined to get even darker. Yes, she's heard the bad things researchers say the sun can do, but she doesn't plan to stop her tanning ways anytime soon. "Not till I get all wrinkly," she said. There are a lot of Tanya Heplers out there, figures Ron Smiley, 39, a Broomall businessman who recently spent $3,800 to own the first Sun Center suntan lotion and sunscreen vending machine on the East Coast.

Dear Polly: How can I remove the odor from the carpet of my car caused by my dog's "accident"? - G.B. Dear G.B.: There are a couple of odor-removing carpet shampoos on the market that may be helpful. These can be used for spot cleaning and are found in the cleaning-products aisle of your supermarket. However, if you'd like to treat the problem inexpensively, try the vinegar treatment first. Vinegar is quite helpful in removing these odors and you could save yourself a couple of dollars on rug shampoo.

With summer rapidly approaching, sun worshipers looking for a safer way to catch some rays can now buy beach umbrellas and shelters that allow them to tan in the shade. The products are made of a sheer vinyl fabric, known as "pro cutis" - Latin for "for the skin" - developed by a unit of Continental AG, the German steelmaker, and being marketed by Pro Cutis North America Inc. in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The company said the fabric blocks harmful ultraviolet rays known as UVB and UVA2 but allows in 79 percent of the UVA1 rays that cause tanning.

Many food-allergic kids are bullied, teased - by adults, too Research shows that many kids with food allergies report being bullied or teased about the condition. About 8 percent of U.S. children are allergic to at least one food, and many of them have multiple food allergies, studies show. The foods most likely to cause reactions in children include peanuts, tree nuts (such as cashews and walnuts), milk, shellfish, and eggs. A 2010 survey of more than 350 parents of food-allergic kids found that 35 percent of children 5 and older were bullied, teased, or harassed because of the allergy, and 86 percent of those reported it happening more than once.

Last winter, I made a vow to keep my feet perfect. The goal was to slide into summer with toes painted in the season's hot pinks and coral shades and show off smooth ankles. So I made a personal promise to get winter pedicures every three weeks - sometimes every two. At first I treated just my feet, but then my hands started to feel left out. They work hard, too, typing day in and day out. And maybe, just maybe, if I kept the polish on my nails, they'd eventually grow out even.

If you want cosmetics that remove cellulite, reduce wrinkles, combat acne, moisturize skin, improve skin elasticity, prevent oxidant damage, and so much more, just kelp yourself. Sorry. Puns are hard to resist when talking about the growing wave of "marine" cosmetics - products containing extracts of seaweed, sea mud, and other things you'd probably consider icky at the shore. "Nature's beauty seacret!" puns an advertisement for SeaAllure, a new anti-wrinkle face patch made by Bio Med Sciences of Allentown.

The trip to Disney World with her husband, Kevin, four children and nanny was "a total blast" for Karen Stillwell of Gilbert, Ariz. The trip home was anything but. "We're going to need another vacation," Kevin Stillwell said. The Stillwells were victims of the air travel upheaval that affected scores of passengers yesterday inside Philadelphia International Airport. There, travelers were forced to chuck lip gloss and suntan lotion into garbage bags already bulging with toiletries.

Ash - flaky skin that looks like chipped, white paint spread on elbows and knees and smattered in the creases of fingers and toes. These areas have a tendency to be dry on everyone, especially during the cold winter months. But on black people, ash is a bigger aesthetic nuisance. Unchecked, it elicits taunts from school-aged children - "Why you look like you been kickin' flour?" - and admonishment from mothers everywhere. "Girl, get in this house right now and put some lotion on those ashy legs of yours.

You're headed to the beach and want some sensible, yet slightly elegant, food with minimal fuss. Take life easy. Concentrate on no-cook or cook-ahead dishes to serve chilled or at room temperature. Think cheese, fruits, cured meats. Pasta salad. Cold chicken or turkey, poached salmon or lobster - all are tempting options. Your menu depends, of course, on whether you're day-tripping with a long drive ahead or just toting a blanket and basket of food a half-block from your Shore cottage.
