LOOK YOUNGER FOR LONGER! 5 REASONS YOU MUST CLEAN YOUR FACE!
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
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!
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?

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…
