Please note that these aren’t medical recommendations. Check with your doctor before changing your routine if you have sensitive skin.

1. Don't let symmetry stress you out.

"It seems simple, but a lot of us can get frustrated by the different arches or direction of hair growth on our two brows. You will go nuts if you try to make them match perfectly; as long as they can somewhat be identified as being part of the same gene pool, you're fine!" —Lauren Romero, Facebook

2. Try a new way to slough off skin.

"Take a nail brush and scrub all over your body before getting in the shower — it removes way more dead skin than doing it in the shower with expensive scrubs." —canvas8282

3. Trust nature to do its job.

"It does everything! Acne? Aloe. Dry skin on your elbows? Aloe. Razor burn? Aloe. It helped get my acne under control and healed all my old acne scars, so now my skin is even clearer than during my best days with old routines." —ohhowthecamera

8. Slay skin issues from the inside out.

"I changed the contraceptive pill I was on, and now my skin is 10 times better! I only get a couple of spots during my period now. Even then, they're pimples rather than deep-rooted cycstic acne, and are much easier to deal with." —Meg Sanders, Facebook

10. Get back to basics.

"I've struggled with acne most of my adolescent and adult life, but over the year and a half I've been doing that, my skin has never been better!" —Mattie Lamont, Facebook

14. Know that other people's beauty doesn't negate your own.

"Admire their beauty, but admire your own, too — a sunset is beautiful, but so is a rose, and a hummingbird, and music. Everyone has their own unique beauty, so play up yours." —dylanrae

15. Oil up.

"My lashes fell off after I curled them, but after a couple months of applying castor oil to my lash line, they've grown back even longer." —Nabilla Irawan, Facebook

16. Get witchy.

"I have always had the most complex combination type of skin: Dry, yet oily; horrific acne one month, 90% clear skin the next. But witch hazel (along with a little lavender for calming and good-smelling purposes) has become the best thing for my once stubborn, unpredictable skin!" —zoec4afe07b87

18. Feel like a nut.

"As eye makeup remover, while shaving (to reduce razor burn), to soften heels or moisturize dry/brittle nails, etc. I use it on a daily basis, and one jar has lasted me over a year." —angelas43a549d6c

19. Be perfectly imperfect.

"I always disliked how pale my skin was, and my dark hair made it even more obvious. I tried wearing a darker shade of foundation and bronzer to blend in, but when I started working at a cosmetic store, everyone complimented me on my natural complexion — and now, I actually go out of my way to enhance it! Whether its a scar, freckles, or something else, I find that when you embrace that feature and bring it into your beauty routine, you shine more than you ever thought you could." —rhiannond49eeb461b
