Lip & Face Scrubs in Your Dorm

I live in a dorm on weekdays and that means I don’t have access to drugstores etc in which I would normally buy face scrubs or what have you to pamper myself with. Since I am one of the most vain people in the entire world I cannot go a few hours without preening in the mirror. Unfortch since both sides of my family have bad skin in the family I’m cursed with perpetual skin problems — acne and combination skin that veers on dry in most cases. I always have these products nearby in my dorm or at home because  a combination of them can create a good toner, makeup remover, spot treatment, lip scrub, or face scrub. And it’s cheap and it tastes good. 

  • Honey
  • Lemon juice 
  • Olive oil 
  • Organic cane sugar — only for my face, I use zero calorie sweetener for noms. Organic cane sugar is just like, a larger grit and I prefer it over regular ground sugar on my face for the texture. 
  • Yogurt, plain. One with a plastic cap, not a tin one, because you want to keep using it. 
  • Witch hazel - a good toner on it’s own and when mixed with olive oil it makes a good eye makeup remover too. 
  • Un-coated aspirin tablets

My favorite mask for acne:

  1. Grab a few tablets of aspirin, uncoated, and drop some water onto it — maybe like, three drops, so it dissolved. Not too much water because it will dissolve very quickly and you want to make a thin paste, not a soggy white liquid. 
  2. Heat up a few drops of honey — I eyeball it so be maybe half a teaspoon or so and mix it into the paste. It shouldn’t be too hot because you are putting it on your face. 
  3. Mix in a squirt of lemon juice. It does make a difference if you use it or not, but it will work without it. 
  4. You can also add in a small spoonful of unflavored yogurt. It’s not necessary either but it’s really amazing. 
  5. PUT THE WEIRD GOOP ON YOUR FACE AND WAIT. You can wash it off after 15 to 20 minutes but I leave it long for however as long as I feel like it, sometimes overnight. 

Super awesome sugar scrub:

  1. Mix a teaspoon of olive oil, a packet of organic sugar (or two depending on the texture) and some honey together until it’s a thick paste. 
  2. Steam your face! I don’t do it as long as usual, which is 10 minutes, but just until I’m sweating like I’ve ran ten miles and feel like someone put me in a volcano. 
  3. Cleanse your face with your favorite cleanser, preferably a foaming or liquid one over one with beads in it. Cold water. 
  4. Apply face scrub in circular motions and work it into your face. 
  5. Wash it off, use your favorite toner. 
  6. Viola your skin is as soft as a baby’s ass. Not that I would know what one feels like because no one trusts me to babysit their children and change their diapers. 

Lip scrub: 

  1. It’s basically the same as the face scrub but you don’t steam your face, you just apply the mixture to your lips in a gentle scrubbing motion and wipe off.
