    21. Nobody likes mould, mildew, or musty smells, but all three can be a real problem in autumn and winter! Thankfully, this Unibond dehumidifier absorbs excess moisture to prevent that.

    Amazon / Via

    I can personally vouch for these as someone whose room is extremely prone to condensation – since I got one a few years ago the problem hasn't come back! They're very low maintenance too, as all you have to do is pop one of the tabs into the dehumidifier, securely close it, and then just leave it in the room and enjoy less mustiness and moisture for three months (when you need to next replace the tab). This has been reviewed over 4,700 times, and many reviewers recommend it, saying it really does work. It's also a good size, as it is large enough to collect a lot of water in its tray without being obtrusively big or difficult to place.

    Price: £11.99

    22. This foot cream by O'Keeffe's is super effective at softening dry, cracked heels, and contains allantoin to get through to the thicker, rougher skin on your feet.

    Amazon / Via

    The formula is very concentrated meaning not much of this is needed, and the high concentration of glycerin in this also means that moisture is drawn into the skin and retained. So if you're sick of scrubbing at your feet with a pumice stone, this cream takes less effort to use but still gives exceptional results. In fact, some people saw massive improvements after just a short while of daily use.

    Price: £5.30

    23. Speaking of dry skin, this Laneige lip mask works overnight to remove dead, flaky skin cells and leave you with smoother lips when you wake up.

    Amazon / Via

    Containing hyaluronic acid (i.e. the staple ingredient for hydrated skin), this helps your lips absorb moisture and - importantly - keep that moisture locked in! Other amazing ingredients in this include Vitamin C, antioxidants, and a berry mix complex, the latter of which makes this mask smell amazing. It has a 4.4-star average rating for a reason, as some reviewers say this is the best lip mask out there.

    Price: £12.89

    24. If you're not on the satin pillowcase bandwagon yet, they're a real game changer for your hair and skin! Plus, these ones come in a variety of colours.

    Amazon / Via

    Because these create less friction than a standard cotton pillowcase, they can help to reduce hair breakage. They also absorb less moisture than cotton so your hair will retain more of its shine! These absorb less of the natural oils from your skin too, and can protect your face from sleep lines. Besides being very useful, they're also just very fancy-looking, tbh.

    Price: £6.98-£8.99 for a pair, depending on colour
