Nightly cleansing.

October 9, 2009

I know this is a dreaded topic for some. Yet, I feel I must address its importance. Doing eyelash extensions for over 4 years now, I have peered over many pores.  I know– the end of a long day, you have crashed on the sofa or somewhere else, maybe the floor??? The last thing you want to do is splash your face with water and get into the complicated regimen that the perfectly complected woman has prescribed you. Women who sell skin care and cosmetics have naturally great skin, right? Not so. If this esthetician did not wash her face morning & night and regularly tend to her rigorous exfoliation techniques, her skin would be riddled with milia, hormonal breakouts and be screaming SUN DAMAGE from miles away. What a good skin care therapist should ask her client who is concerned about breakout is: How often are you cleansing and what are you using? During the day, most women wear some form of makeup, our oil glands have been secreting their substance, and dust in the wind has grasped onto us. Hence forth- makeup, oil and dirt have all accumulated on the surface of our skin. If it is not cleansed away before we drift off, pores will begin to clog, oxidize and form the dreaded black heads. If you are prone to acneic conditions, the bacteria is going to explode in your pores, creating pustules. You wake up wanting to cry. All of this can be greatly reduced by nightly cleansing. Our bodies have been beautifully designed to heal and rejuvenate during our nightly ventures into dreamland. Why not mix in some Vitamin C or glycolic acid action? Some discipline will go far here, ladies. Work with nature, not against it. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but after the early age of 30, it’s a down hill slide. Fight the fight, fight it armed with all you can…proper cleansing habits,vitamins, sunscreen, exfoliation, moisturizers, good oils, water, etc… you will notice the difference when you  do make the effort. I will acknowledge that yes, there are genetic freaks of nature that can get away with doing nothing. Ignore them and wash your face, my friends! 

Peace from the Lash Lady.
