* DRY, CRACKED SKIN. Mix one tablespoon dried kelp with one tablespoon vegetable shortening. Massage into dry areas. Wipe off with a coarse washcloth.
* OIL-ERASING TOMATO TONER. Remove an overripe tomato's skin. In a blender, crush slightly. Using a cotton ball, apply tomato pulp to clean face. Leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. (Tomatoes contain oil-absorbing acids and natural exfoliants.)
* SLEEP LINES REMOVER. If at all possible, avoid sleeping on your face. It may take some getting used to but it will help reduce wrinkling. If you do wake up with one of those annoying creases on your face, take a very warm, very wet wash cloth and hold it on the crease until it cools. Dry off the wetness with a warm hair dryer. Repeat until the crease is gone.
* BODY SCRUB. Mix one cup coarse sea salt with 3/4 cup peppermint tea, forming a paste. Use in the shower to exfoliate and create glowing skin.
* CHAPPED SKIN. Warm cotton gloves in the dryer. Massage udder balm or petroleum jelly into chapped hands and cuticles and other chapped areas of the skin. Wear gloves overnight. Cover other chapped areas with gauze pads.
