You are only doing your face a favour!!!

This post is very important or can i say URGENT! I get mails from peeps asking me how to get rid of the blemishes on their faces. How do i get rid of the black heads? the pimples? the rashes? and all i can say is, "no matter how tired you are, WASH OFF YOUR MAKE-UP AT THE END OF EACH DAY"
Don't get me wrong, i am also guilty of this "crime", so to say. So this post is a reminder to myself too. Here are 5 reasons why you must not leave makeup over night:
1. Touching your face all day long makes your face one of the dirtiest parts on your body. It’s important to clean the skin to avoid the spread of acne bacteria that can cause increased blemishes.
2. Cleansing your skin at night will reduce oil and the ability for acne-causing bacteria to thrive inside the pores. This means less break outs!
3. Your skin repairs itself at night, so removing makeup gives your skin a clean palette for applying your night time performance products for maximum absorption.
4. While you sleep, your skin is at rest allowing regeneration to occur. For the best anti-aging results, clean your skin with a gentle sulfate-free cleanser and use a high performance serum and moisturizer.
5. Moisturizers evaporate when on the skin all day, so washing your skin and applying moisturizer at night ensures it will stay moist and hydrated.
Skin Tip: Too tired to wash your skin at night? Perform your nighttime skin routine at 7:00 or 8:00. Earlier is better than never!
