Melissa Brown, beauty editor of Woman's Day magazine, has a couple of tricks you can try.

Radiance-Boosting Facial Mask
Mix 1 Tbsp baking soda with 1 tsp honey. Add a few drops of water to create a paste. Apply the mask and leave on for 5 minutes, then rinse.

Age-Defying Hand Treatment
Mix 1 tsp kelp powder (find it on amazon.com) with 1 Tbsp honey and 1 Tbsp yogurt and apply to the back of hands (works great on your d├ęcolletage, too!). Leave the mixture on for up to 10 minutes, then wipe away with a warm, damp cloth,

Skin-Softening Body Scrub
Mix 2 Tbsp olive oil with 2 Tbsp sugar or salt. Add a few drops of vanilla extract for a sweet smell. On damp skin, rub the scrub on in circular motions and concentrate on your roughest parts (like knees or elbows), then rinse.

Hair-Thickening Rinse
Bring 1 cup water to a boil, then add 2 Tbsp whole cloves. Boil for 5 minutes and turn off the heat. Let the clove water rest overnight and strain twice in the morning. Put the liquid in a container and pour over strands before conditioning. Try this once a week.
