I use Cetaphil face wash every morning in the shower. It is less drying than soap and makes my skin feel really clean.

And this is silly but since I am up before everyone else in my family, I turn on my favorite radio station and sing in the shower. No one is up to hear me and I find music just makes me happy so it's a great way to start my day. (then it is off to walk the dog in the dark and cold)

Coconut oil removes makeup and moisturizes your face. I use coconut oil as a body moisturizer too. Love the stuff!

When I get really rough and dry skin on my heels in summer, I try to slather a skin cream over my heels and slip a pair of socks on at bedtime. It really seems to help.

Also 'time out' for me is as simple as a cup of chai and a book (nothing too heavy) and 30 minutes in my garden to read and enjoy. I especially love this in winter when it is misty and I am VERY rugged up.

When I am running late I hang my semi wrinkled clothes in the bathroom while I am taking a shower. The heat helps the wrinkles 2 disappear...

A little bit of baking soda mixed in your facial cleanser makes a good gentle scrub, use once or twice a week.

Add a bit of salt or sugar into your body wash for a quick scrub.

I use a drop of Olive oil rubbed together in my hands & then pat on my face. It keeps it moistured & helps with wrinkles too. It doesn't make my face oily because I use such a small amount. I do it at night before bed.

I keep my eyelashes from becoming brittle from Mascara by gently applying a little Vaseline to them at night before bed too.
