Stay in and Chill out

enjoy the weather and maybe even watch the sunset while doing so.

I don’t know about you but summer is hectic as a teenager. It’s supposed to be a break, but I still find that I have so much to do with so little time. Sometimes I am more stressed than I am during the school year. Today I have some good ways to be productive and relax a bit. Besides, isn’t summer supposed to be relaxing?

Today I realized that I only have three weekends left in which I will be at home and able to get my work done. Yes, you heard me, I have summer homework. I will be a sophomore next year and so this means I get to read a 500 page book and write an essay the first day of class over this book. Helpful hint: if you don’t have assigned books over the summer use this time to read the books YOU find intriguing. Because when it gets to the school year, have fun reading not so fun books.

To start your relaxing day I made a face mask to help me feel clean and calm. The recipe doesn’t have exact measurements so just add the ingredients until its not runny.

1 egg white. Do NOT use the yolk, cocoa powder, coffee grounds, honey for dry skin or lemon juice for oily skin.

Apply the mixture to your face and let sit for 20-30 minutes. (This waiting time is a good chance to start on that big book you have to finish). When removing soak a wash cloth in warm water and GENTLY remove from your face. Do not scrub too hard because the mask is an exfoliate and therefore it could irritate your skin if you rub to aggressively.
