“If you’re ever in a pinch without nail polish remover, apply a thin layer of nail polish over what you’re trying to remove, wait a couple of seconds and then wipe [away] with a cotton pad. The nail polish will lift right up.” – Aja

“I ALWAYS splash my face just after I have exercised to wash out and close my pores to avoid sweat pimples – it works!” – Issy

“Brush your brows up vertically before filling them in with powder. This way you’re actually filling in the gaps of skin between the hairs, rather than just going over the hairs. Then simply brush the hairs back in line for perfect, filled-in brows.” – Beth

“If I’m ever cooking with olive or coconut oil, I always massage a bit of it into my cuticles to keep them soft and healthy.” – Deb

“I keep a jar of coconut oil in the shower as it liquefies in the heat. I use it to cleanse my skin at night if it’s feeling really dry and also to shave my legs.” – Ally

“Tint your brows and lashes! Whether you go in-salon or DIY at home (it’s actually super easy, I did a video about it here), it will make your lashes and brows look so much fuller and defined. I do it once every four weeks and it makes such a big difference, especially when going bare-faced to the gym or the beach. My lashes have blonde tips so when I tint them they look so much longer and I find I use less mascara and brow products when they’re freshly coloured. Try it, you won’t regret it!” – Sam

“I combine baking soda and water in the shower and use [it] as a facial exfoliator.” – Sophia

“When I apply my facial serum and moisturiser I rub any of the residue left in the palms of my hands, into my elbows and over the top of my hands to keep them hydrated and youthful-looking.” – Deb

“After washing my cleanser off with water, I always wipe my face over with a hot towel to remove any excess cleanser and make-up that was missed.” – Liz

“I use Clear Eyes eye drops before doing my eye make-up to clear away any redness and make my eyes pop.” – Kim
