Get Sensational Skin With Homemade Recipes! (pg. 2)

Sensational Skin - Elbow Bleach

Elbows can get pretty rough and dark. It's not that they're dirty - although that's what it looks like - but there is a build-up of dead skin cells. The easiest way to get rid of this build-up is to rub it with half a lemon (it acts as a bleach), leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off by scrubbing with a hot towel. If you want something a little stronger, check out this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Directions:

  • Mix a few drops of peppermint oil and lemon juice into the water.
  • Soak cotten balls in the liquid and apply it to the elbows. Let it dry without removing the cotton balls.
  • Repeat 3-4 times.
  • Sensational Skin - Foot Scrub

    The next time you spend a day at the beach, take an empty container and fill it with clean, dry sand - it works as a natural exfoliant! The good thing about this foot scrub is that you can do it right at the beach. Just scrub your feet and rinse it off in the ocean!

    Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of dry beach sand
  • 2 tablespoons of canola oil
  • 3-5 drops of rosemary oil
  • Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients into a paste.
  • Massage onto feet, concentrating on problem areas.
  • Rinse and pat dry.
  • Sensational Skin - Bye Bye Bacne

    Acne doesn't just show up on your face. In the summer, it creeps up behind your back because your body produces more sebum, which is the skin's natural oil. This, along with sweat, will block your pores and cause zits to pop up on your back. To banish this dreaded "bacne," apply natural products like tea tree oil, witch hazel and aloe vera.

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

    My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.

    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 ...
