Did You Know...
...that using too cold or too hot water to wash your face can cause broken capillaries?

I have not been the biggest "take care of yourself" kind of person all my life. I have been the "Make sure you look decent when you leave the house in case you end up on Candid Camera or get in a weird accident that gets you on the Nightly News". But ever since I had my extreme hair makeover, I have also been doing an extreme ME makeover.
I have adopted a mean addiction to jewelry and all things shiny, I actually dress in more than just black and browns (mostly), and I actually wear makeup ALmost every single day.
Hence, my need for an all natural face wash. And I found it in my handy dandy Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash with (take a breath) Organic Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi
The website describes it as a gentle cleansing solution that leaves your skin feeling silky and smooth. The organic tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic that cleanses without making skin feel tight or dry. Which actually is interesting because I read somewhere (trust me I did) that tight and dry skin is a sign of overcleansing it.
Purchase price: $5.49 @ my local health food store. But I found it for $3.20 on healthsuperstore.com soooo....you're welcome! :o)
I love this stuff. It makes my skin feel like my little toddler daughters' face. She actually touches my face and says how soft it is. Isn't that great? From a little kid!
More Pluses...It's 100% all natural and 100% vegan, cruelty free, contains no alcohol, artificial detergents, artificial colors, synthetic perfumes (although it still smells really good) and no synthetic ingredients whatsoever.
Song of the Week: Lauryn Hill "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You"...this song actually changed all meaning for me after having my first child. Don't all love songs change lyrically for you after that first baby? I used to sing this to my son at night to soothe his cries. Lauryn never failed me...
