The 411 on Moisturizers

It's important to moisturize your face and bod during the winter or else you'll be left with dry, chapped, flaky skin.

Facial Moisturizers

  • L'Oreal Hydra Fresh Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($9.11 US) is specially made for young skin. It has a cool citrus scent that leaves you feeling and looking fresh-faced.
  • Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 30 Daily Moisturizer ($11.65 US) offers great protection from the sun's damaging rays. Plus, it's great for your face cuz it's not greasy, non-comedogenic (won't clog your pores) and keeps your skin hydrated all day long!

Body Lotions

  • Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion ($9.99 US) smoothes away bumps and rough patches, and reduces redness, so it'll work wonders on your elbows and knees.
  • Once you get over the yummy scent, slick on Body Shop's Cranberry Body Butter ($12 US). It's a great moisturizer that leaves you smelling absolutely delicious.

Hand And Foot Creams

  • The Body Shop's Vitamin E Hand & Nail Treatment ($12 US) glides on and instantly sinks into your skin. It contains panthenol to strengthen your nails and shea butter to soften your cuticles.
  • The Body Shop's Peppermint Foot Lotion is an all-in-one moisturizer and deodorizer, so it'll come in handy after you finish P.E. class.

How to Avoid Dry Skin

  • Drink at least eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated.
  • During the winter, take short showers instead of long baths, which can zap your skin of its natural moisture.
  • Try this simple trick for dry hands: before you go to bed, cover your hands with a rich, creamy lotion and then put on a pair of cotton gloves. Leave them on overnight - you'll wake up with super smooth hands!

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
