Under-eye puffiness be gone! Take two green tea bags, steep them for a few minutes, then fridge them until they cool off. Squeeze out the excess liquid then set them over your under-eye bags for 15 to 30 minutes. Voila!

Yup, you know where we're going with this. Turn the shower on, making the temperature as hot as possible — then close any windows and the bathroom door to watch the magic happen.

Soft, smooth skin is easy to get with a homemade sugar scrub. One of the simplest recipes that you can make (just by skimming your kitchen pantry) takes equal parts brown sugar, raw oats, and olive oil. Grate some orange zest into the concoction to add in some vitamin C.

4. Soften Your Hair with Olive Oil

If your hair is in need of a deep conditioning, grab some extra virgin olive oil and let it set in your hair for a good thirty minutes before washing it out. Olive oil will help restore your hair's softness while also adding in some beautiful shine.
