Face Cleansing Tools From Around The House If you’re an all around normal person who cooks eggs for breakfast, drinks tea or coffee, or uses olive oil while cooking, there is absolutely no need to surrender your money to the celebrity-endorsed facial treatment creams or ointments that bombard your late night television viewing. Our average readership is comprised of college students who may be feeling a large dent in their bank accounts. There’s no room in your budget for 30 easy payments of $99.99, and there is definitely no room in your medicine cabinet for the assortment of 10 different wipes, creams, injections, and voodoo dolls. So instead of listening to Adam Levine or Katy Perry, sit down and learn about how you can get that healthy skin using everyday products around your apartment.

Egg Yolk Face Mask

While a regular egg would work just as well, apparently quail egg packs a bigger nutrient punch. But if you can’t track down and ensnare a quail on your down time, store bought chicken eggs are just fine. What you need to do is get two eggs and separate the yolks from the egg whites. Next, mix the yolks with one teaspoon of organic honey and one teaspoon of olive oil. Rinse your face before applying the mixture, and make sure to avoid your eyes and mouth. No one wants a pesky case of salmonella poisoning. Wait 15 minutes before rinsing your face with warm water, and your dry face is on its way to being healthy and moisturized.

Green Tea Bath

It’s time to take some of those tea bags you’ve been storing in the back of your pantry and put them to good use. What you’re going to want to do is fill your tub with piping hot water and place 6 tea bags in the water, then hop in. Wait for about 15 minutes before taking them out. You may continue soaking for as long as you’d like, just remember to moisturize after bathing. If you’d like to get the best version of this you can make a trip to Yunessun Spa Resort in Japan, where you can bathe in a spa adorned with a 2 meter high tea pot.

Coffee Grounds

After making countless cups of coffee, it’s time to use those coffee grounds to help exfoliate your face. Grind some coffee beans until they’re a fine powder. You’ll want to get some olive oil as well. There is a ratio of 3 tablespoon of coffee for every 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once you have a fine paste, apply it to your face and let it sit for five minutes. Rinse and towel dry your face and voila, exfoliation.
