”Mirror, mirror on the wall, whose skin is the most glowing it has ever been?”. Want to say “me” but you are not feeling very pretty right now? A lot of changes happen to your body when you reach puberty. Other than going on your period, your body fills out a little bit and your skin becomes oily or gets spots. Blame hormones. They’re like chemical messengers that control how our bodies work. Don’t stress about the changes. They’re all normal. And, with a little help from your kitchen, you can keep your skin, body and hair healthy and happy.

Coconut oil

Think of it as nature’s gift to your skin and hair. It moisturises skin, you can use it as a cleanser and to treat dry, itchy skin. It’s also known to remove dandruff and keep hair healthy. To treat dandruff, apply a little oil to your hair roots every night until the dandruff goes. To moisturise your hair, wet it with water before applying coconut oil. Done. Clicks and Pick n Pay sell Hercules coconut oil for less than R20.

Mask

If you want to show oily skin who is boss, next time you fry an egg, only use the yolk. Instead of cooking the egg white, apply it to your clean face and let it dry before washing it off.

Scrub

Skin grows and renews itself by removing dead cells. When these cells pile up, they make your skin look dull. When you scrub your face, you remove the dead cells, making your skin look fresh. To make a scrub, mix half a cup of brown sugar with half a cup of lemon juice and store in an airtight jar. Scrub your face with a teaspoon when you wash it for a smoother skin.

Acne is an issue that affects many teenagers and young adults. It is caused by dirt and oil build up in the pores and sometimes can be brought on by hormones. I would advise that you wash your face gently but thoroughly twice a day and drink more water, at least 8 glasses a day. Also try not to touch your face too much and avoid popping pimples as this may cause scarring. If this doesn't make a difference then I recommend that you consult a dermatologist

Hey Springster. Stretch marks are a sign of you growing. Becoming a young woman means our bodies expand and our shapes change and this involves getting stretch marks. So many people, men included, have them. Don't be ashamed, you're beautiful just the way you are!

Hi Mahlatse u can remove blackheads by steaming ur face

What about black elbows how do you get rid of the black

Hey Springster! There are many ways that you can rid or dark elbows. You can buy a cream that is specifically for that (but they may be a bit pricy). You can also try mixing 2 spoons of honey, a teaspoon of live oil, the juice of half a lemon and a teaspoon of baking soda. Mix the ingredients together and put it on your elbows and cover it with gauze. Keep it over night. When you wake up the next morning was it away with hot water and the moisturise with coconut oil or lotion. Repeat this till you're happy with happy with the results. That's just one way of doing it that may or may not work for you. Maybe you can research another way that works and share it with the other Springsters.

Hi Scarlett. Thanks for your comment. You shouldn't be ashamed of the pimples or eczema. It's a stage you're going through and it will pass. Moisturizing is very important for eczema and it's also triggered by certain foods you eat so I suggest you visit a doctor for a professional medical opinion. For the acne I'd recommend you put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area.Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. Continue applying this acne removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. Also exfoliate your skin regularly and moisturize your face. Drinking lots of water can cleanse your skin from within. Eating less fatty and sugary foods and replacing it with fruits and veggies can also help! Good luck!

Hi Candy I also have that problem with my face buh I don't let that get into my way of enjoying my time with my family taking pics because I know that it is absolutely normal as long as you take good care of you face everything will be Fine
