Posted February 16, 2012 by peta2 staff

I hate, hate, HATE when my skin freaks out on me! I also have a hard time figuring out what my exact skin type is. Sometimes it’s oily, sometimes it’s dry, most of the time it’s combo, but overall, it’s just straight-up moody! One thing I do know is that the best way to prevent breakouts or excessive dryness is to stick to beauty recipes designed for peeps with sensitive skin.

Here’s a recipe for a gentle, sensitive skin exfoliator that’ll help give you beautiful, healthy, glowing skin (sans any irritation or funky skin reactions):

Facial Scrub for Sensitive Skin
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup soy, almond, or rice milk
2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Few drops tea tree oil

  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  • Apply to your skin in a circular motion as a scrub or lather on as a mask for 10 minutes before rinsing.

      Hey @Kayla,

      You could try it and see if it works for you. Just be sure to check the temperature first. :)

I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
