Help! My skin turned green – what’s going on?

OMG, your finger is about to fall off! (We're kidding.) Don’t worry – some people's body chemistry reacts with brass and bronze this way. It can even be affected by what you've eaten that day, by body products or lotions, or sweat from a recent workout! The good news is that there's nothing harmful about the reaction; in fact, some people use it to gauge their body's copper levels. You can reduce the likelihood of this reaction by avoiding moisture when wearing your jewelry, so take it off before you shower, wash your hands, work out, or have a sauna dance party.

If the green is on your jewelry, it can be removed with an at-home cleaning method.
