Natural remedies — olive oil
If you've run out of eye makeup remover and would like to avoid leaving the house looking like a panda, don't worry! Just pop some olive oil onto cotton wool and wipe away your makeup. It's also great as a DIY moisturizer too, as it contains vitamins A and E.

If your skin is feeling run down and needs a bit of TLC, next time you find yourself with five minutes to spare, mix one tablespoon of honey with a couple of teaspoons of warm water and rub the paste into your face. Sit down for five minutes with a cup of tea and a good book, and then wash it off and moisturize as usual. Your skin will feel clean and fresh from the natural cleansing action of the honey mask.

Use an old hairbrush and start at your feet, brushing your skin gently in the direction of your heart. It'll increase your blood flow, brush away dead skin cells and make you feel that little bit brighter for some pre-shower attention for five minutes before you start your day.

One of the reasons smokers find it difficult to quit is those three or four minutes of peace and quiet away from the world while they smoke their cigarette. There's no reason why a non-smoker can't allow him or herself a three minute break every once in a while, so turn off your phone, step out of the room and relax for five minutes. No chemicals, no calories, just a moment of stress free relaxation will really help your skin to improve over time.
Skin care and beauty attention doesn't have to cost the earth, take up all your time, or fill your life with chemicals. Sometimes everything you need for better skin health is sitting in your home waiting for you!
