Don't throw away mango skin... rub the "flesh" side over your face and leave to dry for about 10min. Then rinse with plenty of warm water and also cleanse your pores with a toner and cotton pads... your pores will be squeaky clean and your skin will feel tightened!

Instead of throwing them away, repurpose your used coffee grounds for later use. The same caffeine that woke you up this morning will revitalize your skin as well. For better results, mix a bit of olive oil, baby oil, or lotion in with the grounds to make a paste. Exfoliate the cellulite and let it sit on your skin for as long as you can stand it, and then wash it off in the shower. For those in a hurry, bring your coffee grounds into the shower and exfoliate any problem areas, then rinse away. Caffeine exfoliation will increase blood flow to the skin, reduce pore size, and help break down the fat. This is not a miracle remedy but you will see results! Do this twice a week.

If you have sore, dry feet, put some bicarb in some warm water and soak your feet in it, makes them lovely and soft. You can also put some in your bath and have a soak .

Rolled oats tied in a stocking or muslin and put under the hot water in a bath makes a really soothing bath for your skin. You need really to squeeze the milk out as it soaks and you end up with a milky bath (sometimes with little flecks of porridge in it but all in a good cause I assure you!)

Tomato ketchup is good for taking the 'green' tinge out of highlighted blonde hair afer swimming in chlorinated water. I have done this myself and it made me gag in the shower but worked a treat. Just make sure you've got some lovely smelling conditioner on hand to combat the smell!
