5 reasons you must cleanse your face!

and the reasons are shocking!

Oh, I know, it feels like such a grind having to find five minutes out of our hectic schedule every evening and just a couple of minutes first thing in the morning to clean our faces. Guess what? If you can just squeeze in under 8 minutes a day into your diary you will not regret it!

I know it is easy to think that letting the shower water run over your face is a good job done but hey that’s just lazy and is not good enough. In the evening, double cleanse and in the morning, a single cleanse will give you a great start to the day!  

Top 5 reasons to cleanse day and night…. regularly!

1.      Your skin will stay looking younger for a helluva lot longer!

Just like we need oxygen to live, our skin needs oxygen to rejuvenate and do its important repair work whilst we sleep. Our skin knows the difference between day and night and gets to work whilst we drift off to the land of nod. If your skin isn’t clean, quite simply, it won’t be repairing efficiently and we will age faster!

            2.      It prevents your pores from stretching!

When your skin is dirty your pores fill with all that disgusting muck sitting on your face and guess what…… they stretch! For real! Once stretched they don’t just ping back either. Oh, no! By keeping your skin lovely and clean and removing excess dirt and oil your pores will stay smaller just as God gave them to you! BTW it’s important to know that pores can’t disappear…their original size is genetically determined plus we need them to eliminate toxins! 

3.      It prevents your skin from dehydrating

This is particularly pertinent if you experience night sweats. At night, our body temperature rises even if we don’t have night sweats. Through this we lose fluid. If we don’t clean our skin before slathering on our moisturiser it isn’t effective. Simples! Hydrated skin equals plump youthful skin. Dehydrated skin will look lined…not quite what we are trying to achieve here!

4.      Saves you money

In these austere times when we are all looking to save our money it is good to know that cleansing skin regularly is a penny pincher too!
We like to buy products to make us look our very best but they aint going to work on dirty skin! Troweling it on in the hope it might work costs money and won’t be helpful. Effectively, you are throwing your money away. But… skin that is clean needs a lot less product to work, meaning you get results with a lot less lotions and potions and save your hard-earned cash to boot!

5.      Removes that nasty pollution and excess oil and dirt from your face!

Yeuk! When I get home I always tell my husband that I am “taking the day off my face”. It is a wonderful moment when I remove all that pollution and dirt off my heavy feeling skin. I don’t want those free radicals on my face for a second longer than necessary. Leaving them there means your skin is aging much faster and you may increase your risk of skin cancers.

Have I convinced you? Yes? Brilliant!

Have a skintatsic day . Don't forget you can watch the tutorial on you tube!

Guest Blogger Kaz Molloy writes about the great “womb cancer scandal” for Savvy ‘n’ Sassy readers today. Her message is powerful, and a must read for all women, young and older alike. Her words are from the heart. She has survived womb cancer but it has left a profound effect on her life. Please read and please, please share. It is easy to hide and not look at articles like this because we get scared. There is no need to be scared. Knowledge is a life saver. Who wouldn't want to know about the most common but sadly under discussed symptoms  of womb cancer?
I was diagnosed with womb cancer at the end of Dec 2009, aged 46. I had never heard of it and knew nothing about it. I didn’t know that it was the most common gynaecological cancer and that it can affect women of all ages.
After my treatment ended I decided to do something about the lack of support out there for women who had been diagnosed with womb cancer and also about the lack of awareness there was about this cancer.
So in Apr…

Hey you, savvy 'n' sassy lady! I hope you are having a good week. I don’t know about you but, as I am getting older I am frequently finding that I am less seduced by “things” and increasingly looking at how I can save a bit of cash here and there by finding ways to reuse “stuff” or by “buying wiser”. For me this has been really noticeable with regards to “beauty stuff”. Yes I have been guilty I've buying every promise or new tool, haven’t we all? The problem I have is two fold. Often, whenI look at the ingredients of products I realise how easy and cheap they are to find elsewhere and also, there is that question of recycling/upcycling. I am sure many of us are appalled at the amount of waste and damage we are doing to the planet which we will leave as a legacy to our younger family members.

With this in mind, I have made a huge effort to avoid unnecessary purchases and ways to recycle or at least reduce my carbon footprint. I am truly pleased to share them with you today an…
