‘What the f**k is that?’ Gemma Atkinson exclaims as she notices a rash while filming.
GEMMA ATKINSON was having an animated conversation with her Instagram followers when she noticed a mysterious rash on her chest and yelped in horror and backed away.
Gemma Atkinson was discussing how new mothers can get help dealing with physically traumatic childbirth when she noticed marks on her body she hadn’t expected.
“What the f**k is that?” exclaimed the 37-year-old TV star, visibly shocked.
It’s only a heat rash!
Gemma Atkinson is a British actress.
“It’s just a heat rash,” she consoled herself before asking her followers for help, “IS IT a heat rash?”
Before turning and fleeing from the camera, she told her followers, “I need to go make-up.”
“I’m putting on make-up again!”
The rash in question appeared to be a faint cluster of marks just beneath the center of her collar bone, but it had made Gemma nervous while she was filming for work.
A heat rash on a chilly winter day seemed unlikely.
Gemma, on the other hand, had filmed herself working up a sweat in the gym earlier that day, her hair tousled and messy as she negotiated repetitive jumps.
She’d also tried red light therapy a few hours before.
According to Healthline.com, the therapy uses “red low-level wavelengths of light to treat skin issues, such as wrinkles, scars, and persistent wounds, among other conditions,” and it is “controversial.”
Due to their perceived ability to increase energy within human cells, red light beds like the one Gemma was using at home are commonly found in salons.
Stretch marks and wrinkles, as well as the skin condition psoriasis and wounds that take a long time to heal, are said to be treated with the therapy.
It’s even being touted as a means of avoiding chemotherapy’s negative side effects.
Other health benefits include a perceived increase in collagen production for plumper-looking skin, sun damage repair, cold sore prevention, pain and inflammation relief after arthritis or joint injury, and many more.
Critics, on the other hand, argue that not enough is known about the therapy to prove that it is always effective.
Prior to the rash, Gemma had been chatting with her followers about her appearance on C4’s Packed Lunch, where she shared her experiences in order to help those who have experienced trauma during childbirth.
“I had a lot of women and a traumatic birth.”
“News from the Brinkwire.”
