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…
January is the perfect time to sit by the fire and enjoy a good book!
I know it's a bit late but...….Happy New Year everyone. I always find January cold and grey and a bit of a let down after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. One way I love to cheer myself up is to grab a hot drink and snuggle on the sofa with a good book. I get totally involved with the characters, imagine the settings and for a while I'm enjoying a different reality! With the weather we are being threatened with in the next week or so it seems like a pretty good way to spend my time! To see my Top 5 recommendations for Januaryread all about them here! I promise you that there isn't a new year new you book to be found! Enjoy your precious reading time! Namaste Janie S xxx Founder Savvy 'n' Sassy
