Aloe, aloe, aloe

Sometimes you just need a desk drawer staple that can multi-task like the poor person in charge of gaining Tony Abbott more female votes. Swisspers Naturals Aloe Everything, $10.99,  from chemists and supermarkets, soothes windburn and sunburn, works as an all-purpose moisturiser and can double up as a lip balm. It's especially good on tough dry areas like heels and elbows thanks to vitamins A, E and jojoba (which is a particularly fun word to say out loud if you have a phlegmy chest cold).
