Your twice daily cleansing routine should include your neck (front and sides), around your ears and upper chest. People tend to forget about these areas and it really does show. And ageing also shows easily on your hands so remember to give them tlc as well.
You can use a micro-fiber mitt instead of a cleanser and it works amazingly. It even removes mascara! And because you are not using any harsh cleanser your ph balance remains balanced. When the mitt gets old use it to apply toner, minimising cotton use (or use a sterile gauze, which also uses less product and slightly exfoliates), or fill it with Bath Soak, tie it closed and use as a creamy body scrub.
Sterilise all face cloths, sponges, brushes and make up applicators at least once a week. Dip them in a bowl of water with a drop of tea tree oil afterwards to give it a slight anti-bacterial film.
How to tie the drawstrings on the organza bags : It can be very frustrating if you have to struggle to unknot the bags, especially after a relaxing bath. So here’s a way that makes it easy to untie while remaining firm enough when tied to not loosen by itself. So when you tie a knot you first intertwine the two sides together, then pull tight, then bend each side back and intertwine them again and pull tight. To tie the bag, pull the drawstring closed, intertwine the two strings together, pull tight, then turn over the bag and repeat, so you’ll again intertwine the two strings together and pull tight. And that’s it. It will stay together when it should and come apart when it should.
