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.

    As long as you know what you're doing, and know how to *properly* deal with the trolls on youtube, you should be fine. You might not want to show your face in the videos though.
