DIY: Easy and Enjoyable Facial

November 2, 2014

Lay down, close your eyes, and float on the clouds as an esthetician gently cleanses, steams, exfoliates and purifies your face. The best part is the facial, and chest massage.

Not tonight. I had the worst facial of my life tonight. I'll spare you the long detailed list of what went wrong, but just know that I stopped for a beer on the way home, and as soon as I got home, I took a Vicodin and put a bag of ice on my face. My face is still red, and throbbing, accompanied by a pounding headache.

Tonight, I also found out that many of my friends have not ever had a facial. Ladies, you're missing out, even if you give yourself one!
