Use lip-gloss to plump your pout
Lip-gloss is a great way to give the illusion of fuller, plumper lips due to its hyper-hydration effect. To plump your pout, dot a light shimmering gloss at the centre of your lips. This will create a more visible 3-D effect, giving you the illusion of fuller lips!
Castor oil is amazing for getting bigger brows
Fuller eyebrows are trendier than ever, but overzealous tweezing can leave you with unwanted bald patches. Castor oil is well known for having great growth properties as it contains fatty acids, proteins and vitamin E, all of which trigger hair growth and prevent further hair loss. Soak a cotton bud with castor oil and apply to each eyebrow. Leave it on ideally over night but at least 30 minutes will suffice. After doing this for a month or so you should start to notice results.
DIY facemasks are a great way to give your skin a quick boost
90% of the time you will have the ingredients lying around the house to make a fast, simple and efficient DIY facemask.

This mask can be applied on a daily basis too, either in the morning or just before bed.
Drink lots of water!
We know this sounds too straightforward, but there are countless benefits to drinking the recommended 2 litres of water (at least!) a day. You will have increased energy, it helps with weight loss, flushing unwanted toxins out of your body, your skin and nails will be rejuvenated. This benefits really are endless! Add a splash of lemon juice to your water in the mornings to help revitalise you and make you more alert for the day ahead. So simple, yet so effective.
Use olive oil for thicker lashes
Olive oil is rich in vitamin E and oleic acid which are great for nourishing and adding volume to your eyelashes. All you need to do is dip a clean, old mascara stick in warm olive oil, apply just before bed as you would mascara, leave on overnight and wash off with lukewarm water in the morning. Repeat this process every day and within a couple of months, your eyelashes should be looking thicker and healthier than ever.
