  1. Humidifier: Humidifiers are the ultimate moisturizers and hydrators for your skin. These steamy devices are great at keeping your skin supple when the air is dry and windy. A great idea would be to leave your humidifier on as you sleep and you’ll be waking up to lovely, hydrated skin. It brings new meaning to the term “beauty sleep!”
  1. Silk Pillowcase: The Silk pillowcase has been used for decades for promoting great skin and hair. Because it’s a natural material, it’s hypoallergenic and it’s also packed with amino acids, which is really good for us. It also absorbs moisture and adjusts to all temperatures, that means your skin won’t be sticking to a sweaty pillowcase and accumulating pore-clogging oils, while your hair stays soft and static free as you sleep.
  1. Water Purifier: Shower time is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine. Showering the right way can mean the difference between dry, brittle hair and hair with mega shine! Unfiltered, hard water contains tons of chlorine and toxins, which can really take their toll on your skin and strands. This is why water purifiers in the form of showerhead filters are HUGE. These little bad boys help improve hair and skin hydration and increase shine and manageability.
  1. Baby Powder: Indulge in your inner infant and do a little beautifying! Baby powder is great for absorbing oil and it can also help step up your lash game! Get faux lashes without the “faux” by dipping a cotton swab in baby powder and coating lashes after applying mascara. Then apply another coat of mascara and, voila, thick, lovely lashes will magically appear!
  1. Coconut Oil: Thanks to mother nature, coconut oil is loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients; this wonder oil is the ultimate moisturizer for your skin and hair. Use it as an overnight hair mask or as a moisturizer for your face and body. You can also mix it with a little sugar and you’ve got yourself a scrub!
