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!

    I think we all go through it,  I am right now. Keep your chin up, smile on, and remember that to be mean these girls have to sink pretty low, and if they are bullying you, YOU ARE ABOVE THEM!!!!! Keep your friends close, never forget to be who you are (as cheesy as it sounds, thats what I did and now I am really happy with loads of friends. I also told a teacher, she sorted it all out pretty quick to.) . Last thing-tell a teacher. I did, and she talked to the mean girl. Now everyone knows I'm not afraid to do it, either. Bad times will pass, and good ones will come. Look after yourself. Xx. *virtual hugs*

    Sure, I wear them a lot.  As long as you're not wearing the really tight kind, which should go with a dress or skirt or something, it's totally cool.
