If you’re in desperate need of a post-bop skin detox and have some leftover beer lying around that you’ve promised the almighty god of hangovers never to drink again, this week you’re in luck! Treat yourself with that stale half can of Heineken and still stay sober enough to meet your essay deadline by making it into a facemask. With radiant skin, you might even be able to, ahem, face your tutor after he’s marked it (hahahaha).

1 egg white
1/2 can of beer
2 tsps fresh lime juice

Separate the egg white from the yolk and throw the nasty fatty yellow thing away. Stir the former thoroughly into your beer (it doesn’t matter if it’s stale or warm) before squeezing fresh lime juice from an actual lime into the mix. Do not use the neon green stuff you can pick up at Tesco instead. Apply to the face and remove after 10 minutes using warm water. The lime and beer contain a variety of vitamins and the egg white aids elasticity.


For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
