Nowadays we have products for anything - firming, toning, peels... the list could go on. But back in the day, people made due with what they had. Somewhere along the way we lost sight of these 10 great tricks that still work!

1 - Tighten up those pores!

Ice water can be a friend to your tired face. The cold tightens your skin and pores temporarily by constricting blood flow. Try it out by filling your sink or a large bowl with ice cubes and cold water. Submerge your face for 8-10 seconds.

2 - Treat your bags with tea bags!

Battle tired, puffy eyes with the anti-irritant properties of tea by seeping two tea bags in hot water for three minutes. Remove them and place them in the fridge until cold. Apply a cold tea bag to each eye for 10 minutes to refresh your eyes.

3 - Give your old eyeliner new life!

All you need is a lighter to spruce up our eyeliner. By running the tip of your eyeliner pencil through the flame from the lighter for a second or two, you improve the smoothness when applied.

4 - Tone your skin naturally!

Using one part apple cider vinegar and four parts water, this toner solution is fantastic as apple cider vinegar is particularly good for the skin. The acidity in the vinegar aids in drying out pimples and allowing healthier skin to move into its place.

5 - Liven up your limp locks!

Everyone knows Olive oil is great to cook with but it's a fantastic moisturizer. It keeps your hair healthy and protected by damage as the fatty acids that it is comprised of coats the hair shaft. Give yourself a treatment by warming half a cup of olive oil in the microwave and applying thoroughly to your hair. Leave it on your hair for twenty-thirty minutes and then shampoo out for softer hair.
