I’m always telling people how important it is to wash your face – but I just recently got a lesson on how true that is!
A few Sundays ago was my day off work, and I had a nice lazy day at home. I typically don’t wear makeup on my days off – and that day was no exception. I showered and washed my face that morning – and went about my day. That night – I did not wash my face before going to bed – figuring that since I hadn’t put any makeup on that day, I was good.
When I was getting ready Monday morning I realized just how bad a decision that was. I don’t wash my face in the mornings – just rinse with water while in the shower, and then swipe witch hazel all over with a cotton ball before moisturizing. And that morning – the cotton ball was just dirty! I had to use multiple cotton balls to get all the grime off my face!
And then I laughed. Because I’m always telling people to wash their faces at night! And as women, I think we just focus on the fact we need to get the makeup off our faces – but we forget about the dirt and grime of life! After all, we tell men to wash their faces at night – and they’re typically not slathering on the blush and bronzer!
The world can be a dirty place – so make sure you are always washing your face at night!
