Mixing a little milk in your bathwater has been known to be a great way to quickly moisturise and soften your skin. To do this at home, draw a warm bath in the tub and mix in a couple of cups of whole milk and take a relaxing soak to give your skin time to absorb the benefits. This is great if your skin is looking and feeling dry and flaky. 

Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum Jelly such as Vaseline has been around since the 1800s and used by ladies from the past as a cleanser and moisturiser--healing chapped lips, skin, and keeping their skin soft and supple. While it's not the most glamorous product out there, using Vaseline has been touted by celebrities as Marilyn Monroe and Tyra Banks as the secret to their good skin. Apply a thin later of vaseline to the areas of your skin that needs that boost of extra moisture, such as under your eyes, hands, and elbows.


Oats & Honey

A face mask made of oats and honey has been a trusted favourite over the years, with the oats gently exfoliating and calming your skin while the honey keeps it soft and supple. Mix a little oats, honey, and extra virgin olive oil and apply the mixture liberally all over your face. Keep it on for at least 20 minutes and rinse off with warm water.


Cucumber

If you want a more natural way to de-puff your eyes, keep sliced cucumbers in the refrigerator for a quick pick-me-up whenever your eyes are feeling dry, tired, and puffy. Keep the cucumbers on your eyes for at least 10 minutes to give it time to work its magic.
