2. Headache Pads

Price: $5 at boots.com
These soft gel patches are easy to apply, and gently soothe your head to relieve pain. I was sceptical, but it really did work! The only problems I had were the cost, which can mount up if you use a lot, and how silly they can look. They are good for your skin too, though, and will leave it feeling hydrated and pampered, while removing your headache without pills. Give them a try!
