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.

    • Half the day I'm inside, half the day I'm outside.
    • I spend most of the day outside.
    • 24/7, baby!

    Dear Dish-It in the forums

    LostintheAbyss
    Dear Dish-it, This is really strange for me to write to you because I have never done anything like this before but I need an outside POV from my situation and I need help. These days, I don't know what I'm doing or what tomorrow is going to bring. But before I get into how I feel, I am going to explain my situation a bit first. So let's get started. My family is a family of 6 though my oldest sibling has left the house to live else where because he's 26 years old. Anyway, I argue a lot in my family in fact there's fights everyday either with me or just between other family members. I don't remember a time that we didn't fight... Sad ain't it? But I try and not let it bother me. My mom and me have the best and worst relationship out there. At one time, we understand ourselves completely but then something happens and the arguments stop... It always ends with her angry and me frustrated, crying and angry... I have cried more in the past year and half (That is when it got worst) Then my entire lifespan so far. Plus since she had a bad childhood, she tries to make everything different from hers but she ALWAYS compares me to her. I am a different person than her and she just doesn't understand that! I always feel really bad after because she wants me to be the perfect child but I can't and I never will be. I am just me. Like today, I punched a wall because I just wanted to feel something else than sadness and worst thing is that I fake smiles and optimism at school so nobody knows. My friends don't understand even though I have told them but now I brush it off. It's not their life so they don't need to understand it. But that's my situation... Now that you have heard something about me, I need help. I'm sending myself in the abyss. I am losing control. I feel as if everything is slipping from my fingers and everything is falling apart. I don't know what's happening to me! I am losing myself and I don't know what to do! It's hard to keep up my grades, to make sure that everything is done, that I go to my activities after school. It feels so hard to do right now... I throw things and slam doors when I am super mad. I don't have anger issues but I keep in so many emotions that I explode when I can't take them anymore. My world seems to be crumbling before my eyes. My family is in debt, my parents might split and my brothers hate me. My dog, running, drawing and books are my only escape.  I don't know what to do... Sincerely LostintheAbyss
