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.

    I think its really great you posted this, cause a lot of people need it. Adults don't notice children problems. When I was in 2ed grade i was bullied by teens that were like 16. Not only that, teachers can bully kids too. My mom always puts people who try to kill them selves down in awful ways. Every time she says that stuff I am very offended by it cause she knows I have emotional problems but she still like to dig into it. Someone who feels they need to kill themselves needs someone to trust and talk to. I'm so happy you posted this. Cause it is so true!
