Hack: If you don't have moisturizer gloves, use regular gloves.  "I still prefer the Bliss ones, but this works in a pinch." - Justine Schwartz, Senior Editor


For dry lips, apply honey for 15 minutes then remove with a cotton swab dipped in hot water. "I thought the honey would strip my lips when I rubbed it off but this tip actually works!" - Shelby Rodriguez, Graphic Designer


Exfoliate dry elbows with half a lemon with salt or sugar sprinkled on it.  "Seems like a lot of steps and a waste of a lemon just to exfoliate your elbows. But it did work!" - Claudia Saide, Freelance Market Editor


Soak feet in equal parts water and rice vinegar to soften calluses. "I didn't have rice vinegar, so I used white vinegar. Maybe that's why this one didn't work great for me. The article does say it might take a few times though." - JS


Apply olive oil to nails to treat brittle nails. "I haven't seen a difference in my nails yet--but it was easy to apply and it made my hands softer from rubbing it on." -SR


Add a few cups of whole milk to your bathwater. "I was a little weirded out by pouring a dairy product on my body--but I think it actually made my skin softer after, as the article promise." - JS


Use coconut oil on dry hands.  "The texture was too weird for me. I don't care how soft it makes your hands--it's totally slimy and hard to wash off." - JS


Mash up a banana to make a super hydrating 30-minute mask.  "I didn't make it to 30 minutes--but I think it actually worked! Now I want to try the other masks from this article." - Sara Alderman, Editorial Assistant


Use water-based products for oily skin, and oil-based products for dry skin. "This is an easy way to remember what products are best for your skin." - SR


Use Crisco on seriously dry skin.  "A little too greasy for me. Maybe my skin's just not dry enough? Try me again in March!" - SA
