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.

    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.

    • Half the day I'm inside, half the day I'm outside.
    • I spend most of the day outside.

    say to your grandmother," i understand and acknowledge that you are allowed to dislike ANY of your grandchildren but for you to favor thats completly out of the question and completely unfair. i just wanted to be loved equally by somebody as important to me as you are. but if aren't willing to do so then i will turn to my grandfather and my parents."

    I say that if they verbally hurt you that way they are NOT your true friends the may POSE  as your friends, but they're not. now, they may pretend because you have something they want or you give them free stuff. if you feel like crying. go out and find friends that'll make you feel like you flying OVER your old mean friends. real friends treat you with respect, check in on you, and talk to you when NOBODY will. trust me i know. if you have fallen down and need help you can easily seperate your true friends from the POSERS.
