"I use really good olive oil on my hair. It smells great. A tiny bit just on the ends to give it a more piece-y, slept in and second-day feel." -Brandon Holley, Editor-in-Chief

"I massage a little bit of warmed olive oil into the ends of my hair, but only during the summer months, when it's super beach-and-pool fried." -Verena von Pfetten, Executive Digital Editor

"I use sheer lipstick as a blush." -Anne Keane, Fashion Director
"Sometimes after I wash my face, I "rinse" it with whole milk.  It softens and soothes my skin and makes it feel more plump and moisturized.  I think it's also a good thing to do if you have a little sunburn on your face." -Leigh Gill, Assistant Fashion & News Editor
"If I unexpectedly run out of shower gel and I'm in a total bind, I'll use dishwashing liquid to soap up in the shower. Palmolive especially. It's emollient and sudsy. I'm surprised more people don't do it." -Denise Burrell-Stinson, Research Chief
"To extend the life of a manicure, I wear thin latex gloves when I wash my hair. No chipping for a week!" -Liz Kiernan, Special Sections Director
"When I was living in Italy, my Italian friends told about me the best face scrub! It 's a simple mixture of olive oil and sugar. I use it on my face and lips. It scrubs off dead skin while leaving your face with a beautiful glow!" -Amanda Letchko, Fashion Assistant
"I use Manuka honey for chapped lips before going to bed (Manuka honey is only produced in Australia and New Zealand—it's supposed to have medical benefits! You can also eat it, too.)" -Mariko Suzuki, Assistant Accessories Editor
"As someone with acne, I've discovered that Neosporin cures spots overnight and makes it so much easier to cover up the next day. It's not something you would normally think of but it does make sense." -Stephanie Kornblum, PR Coordinator
"I love using apple cider vinegar as a post-shampoo hair rinse! It ups shine and helps keep winter dandruff (gross, but we all get it!) at bay." -Elana Fishma, Senior Digital Editor
"This past winter my skin seemed dryer than ever. I started using a humidifier at night and found that when I woke up, my skin looked and felt so much more hydrated. Even though it's warmer now, I still plan on turning it on as needed." -Sarah Ferguson, Assistant Digital Producer
"Now and then, I dab a bit of petroleum jelly on my eyelashes. It conditions and plumps them. Plus, as an added bonus—they look extra glossy and longer." -Joane Amay, Senior Fashion Credits Editor
