A Shortcut

I'm a dirty girl. I never remember to wash my face before bed! I can't even tell you why, but for some reason, I can't bring myself to do it. I do, however, brush my teeth, so go figure.

I learned once during a Mary Kay facial that for every night you do not remove your makeup before sleeping, your skin ages the equivalent of 6 days. Eeeek!! Seeing that I've already acquired a nice collection of wrinkles at the ripe old age of 28, that's not great news for me!!! (Although, I doubt the veracity of this tenant, as I haven't washed my face before bed consistently in years, so my skin should have aged about 18 years in the last 3...I'm not that wrinkly!)

Well, these Daily Facial cleansing cloths have turned out to be the perfect solution for a lazy bum like myself! I simply grab one after I finish brushing my teeth, and wipe away the day as I sit in bed and read. They have a moisturizer and make up remover in them, so its a one-step deal. Toss in the trash (don't even have to get out of bed!) and my skin is much happier :) I must say that I have noticed a difference in my skin since I've started doing this a few weeks ago. And its a habit I've been able to sustain! These particular facial wipes can be found at Costco for approximately $11 for 150 wipes, which should last about 5 months. Not a bad price to pay for healthier skin!
