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.

    How Much Time Do You Spend Outdoors?

    • None - I keep it cool inside.
    • Half the day I'm inside, half the day I'm outside.
    • I spend most of the day outside.
    • 24/7, baby!

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

    I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!
