Study. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. Finals week is tough. We’re all familiar with the spike in stress and anxiety that comes with sitting in the library for hours at a time. The last thing on our minds is to be healthy, let alone finding time to relax. Obviously that double chocolate chip cookie from Starbucks is calling your name, but is it worth the sugar crash?

Lucky for you, we have the perfect solution. We found a way to enjoy a healthy cookie AND a facial… From the same recipe. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your 15 minutes of bliss… Then get back to that chemistry book.

    Apply a thin layer of the remaining dough to your face, then bake the cookie for 8-10 minutes. In the meantime, kick back and relax while your cookie is baking. After the cookie is done, rinse the facial off with warm water, and eat that cookie guilt-free.
