Get Sensational Skin With Homemade Recipes!

After long days of lying on the beach, swimming laps at the pool and battling the sun and the heat, your body's in need of a little TLC. Find out how to treat your skin with these homemade scrubs and body masks to soothe, hydrate and soften up!

Sensational Skin - Body Scrub

Suntanned skin is nice; peeling skin isn't. If you're suffering from this summer blunder, use a loofah sponge that you can buy at your local drugstore. Or, try this invigorating almond scrub to gently exfoliate and relieve itchy, flaking skin.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup of ground almonds
  • 1/3 cup of oatmeal
  • Plain yogurt, milk, or buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of herbs, like lavender or chamomile (optional)
  • Essential oils for scent (optional)
  • Directions:

  • Mix the dry ingredients in a blender and store it in a glass jar in the refrigerator.
  • When you want to use the scrub base, scoop out 1/4 cup into a bowl and stir in enough of the liquid ingredients to make a paste.
  • Rub over body and rinse thoroughly.
  • Sensational Skin - Body Mask

    When food is just too good to eat, make a fruit salad of pineapples, which slough off dead skin cells, grapes, which protect against harmful UV rays, and other fruits to make a body mask that'll hydrate and soothe sunburned skin.

    Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of pineapple, rind removed
  • 1/2 honeydew melon, rind removed
  • 1 dozen green grapes
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 kiwi, peeled
  • Directions:

  • Puree all ingredients in a blender. Mixture will be slightly lumpy.
  • Refrigerate for one hour.
  • Smooth onto body, leaving on for half an hour.
  • Rinse off with warm water.

    How Much Time Do You Spend Outdoors?

    • None - I keep it cool inside.
    • Half the day I'm inside, half the day I'm outside.
    • I spend most of the day outside.
    • 24/7, baby!

    My mom's side of the family is abusive in their discipline. Its too much for me. Even though my grandma left the house, the effects of her disciplinary actions are hurting my self-esteem and self-confidence.

    Me and my best friend met in this year but we are, or were, really close. I'm transferring to a different school this year. Me and my friend used to text every single day since summer vacation started. Now, we don't text at all! Whenever I text her I know she reads it because I use ######## but she never responds. It can't all be bad timing. I miss my best friend :(

    Dear Dish-it, Sorry to be a burden, but I need some advice. About a year ago, I decided I didn't want to live with my mom and decided to move in with my dad. After my mom found out, she told me "You are no longer my child, go drop dead and rot in hell for all I care." My siblings, especially my twin, began to threaten me and my father's lives if we were to ever step foot near them again. A year later, my dad and I get in massive fights about everything I do wrong and he never seems to try and see my point of view. He often gets ##### and compares me to my mother and his previous exes. I feel lost on what to do. I feel so alone and so...hurt. Do you have any advice? I know it's pathetic of me to rant on here, but I'm clueless and on the verge of snapping.
