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.

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
