I have just started doing this but often it is just too cold in the bathroom.....
I have never done this before but after listening to a SALES GIRL on a cosmetic counter, I decided to do this twice daily instead of just after my shower.
However, it is a novelty at the moment and probably will not last long.
When I was young I actually listened to and half-believed all the hype put out by cosmetic companies,and I would do the whole routine twice a day!!! But once into my 30's I realised it is a HUGE money spinner,so I just used much cheaper,generic products which seemed to work identically!! These days,and for the last many,many years I simply rinse my face with tepid to warm water and pat dry with a towel before going to bed.I do like to go to sleep,clean!!I am very fortunate to not have many lines at all for my age,and I hate the feel of any 'gloopy' stuff on my skin at all!! I feel like it totally negates the cleansing process!!! In the morning I like to wake myself up with a good wash of my face as well.
If you dish out criticism, you also have to take it without resorting to snide remarks donjo! I'm surprised with all the "honours" you have received you didn't realise "inbedding" was not an English word.
You're the one with problem, norma. Now you're calling me a lier. Pretty nasty of you. Aren't you cognisant of the fact English is an evolving language? Or are you only a retired school teacher, trying to be a smart@&):?
So, according to you I'm poorly educated? I suppose that's better than being a jealous person, which you obviously are. You're too obsessional in your nit picking, & you should be a bit concerned about that. You're way OTT of normalcy in your rants. There're worse things to worry about in life. You've NO idea of my life, so quit with your judgemental attitude towards me.
Oh dear, I must have touched a nerve. However, this is becoming boring so won't be pursuing any further as can't seem to have a decent discussion without you resorting to insults. Just not interested in your opinion!
Well that is sad.
I seemed to get from you a person who is strong and not easy to upset.
But! on the very positive side it gave me an opportunity to
see that it is not warranted on this site ......and to ask Jennifer to
forgive any and ALL my own 'lack of patience at times !
The only reason I did give input into this is because often with such a forum, we have to I think in now thinking, make 'light' of what can and is sometimes said...
There can be one or two times....it may not play out, but for the most and in my opinion this case, really is not warranted.
After all we are all adults.
As I said before, it has been a positive for me personally....even when I have at times been pushed, I guess I just want to set the record straight.
Being 'angry' over such a small thing....is ugly, and we all seem to go there at some time, don't we.(Maybe not on here) of course.
donjo.....you have done a good thing in a way, that others can see how little it takes, and make a choice maybe not to react to quickly, to the small things in life.
Please don't think I am having a go at you, I'm just saying you helped me....when on here I felt 'pushed'.
I have found better to pick my battles.
Yes - I wash my face every night before bedtime., and I also try to remember moisturiser but have to confess to being a bit dilatory sometimes with this. I'm fairly lucky though, my skin is pretty good for my age, so can't complain.
To jonaj, your both lots of words are understood. But I'm NOT going to be corrected, in anyway by a 'stranger' over something so petty. There was NO reason for her make that first snide comment. Norma thought she was being smart. She took on the wrong person. Her comments are evidence of this, & they're just the pits!
Jonaj you seem like a lovely lady and you are quite right about picking one's battles.
Donjo, it might be an idea to calm down and stop flipping out at every little comment a stranger makes, especially as you make similar comments on other people's posts all the time. It's not that big a deal. None of this is life or death. You don't even post articles here. You don't have to be here at all if you're not having fun.
Didn't realise there were 'rules' to this site that I HAVE to 'post articles'. Why? You might like to, have time, & interest to do so, but I DON'T!
I'm not 'flipping out', but I get annoyed at rude, bad mannered people. There're ways, & ways to 'correct' someone, & IMO, Norma doesn't know the ways. She was a 'bully' in her comments to me, & I will NOT put up with that sort of response, particularly when she did it TWICE to me. She said I wasn't 'educated'. Well, I know who's the one who's not. Education comes in many forms. I'll leave it there.
P.S. Jennifer, it was to another post I commented that Finy got her idea for this question. Didn't know that did you?
My comments are factual, well placed, & to the point. So you don't need to 'have a go' at me every opportunity you get, which you've done several times now. You sound like a 'broken record', & I think you've got a 'hidden agenda' with your continuous sniping at me. Give it a break, ok?
I enjoy replying to various questions. My hope is always that others' may learn something new from my replies, due to the fact, I've had a 'fortunate life'', & enjoy 'sharing' where I can.
No, I wasn't saying that was a rule. My point was that posting articles would be one reason to hang around the hubgarden and answer questions/comment etc. (people who post articles need to acquire karma points and can do so by answering questions, voting etc). Another reason would be because you enjoy posting answers and comments. When you keep flipping out and getting angry all the time it doesn't seem as though you are enjoying being on the site, so I wonder why you are still here. But maybe you just enjoy getting angry, and hey, if that's what floats your boat you can do that, though I wish you wouldn't be so rude.
Something good came from this....I saw it very clearly.
I mean what I said Jennifer, and I hope donjo you understand that your welcome here, but it has had it's problems long before you came.
You have been invaluable to me at this time....to see that we are a little family, of mainly ladies.
Life is short, and reading too hard in between the lines is not a good thing.
I think we have come to understand one another moreover this, but in all my many years on this planet, it's not about a 'Pissing contest'.
Never was....It's about treating one another as we would want to be treated.
Lets now put this baby to sleep, it's been a learning curve...and really a good one....for all concerned.
We are a little family, and at times families get upset with one another.
When I haven't heard from someone on here in a while, makes me wonder 'are they ok'?
donjo I do hope this will not make you feel 'less welcome' that's not the truth as far as I can see, maybe because we don't know your 'life' and what you have done and been. One can't get the full picture.
I have told part of 'my story' on here...so has Finy...and Jennifer has shared a little with us.
Other wise we go in blind....don't we :) BIG HUGS OXOXO
Hi jonaj. As usual, your level-headedness comes to the fore, for which I THANK YOU!
In all my life, I've been very passionate about anything in which I'm interested. I can't help it, that's just me. It's helped me enormously with what I've studied, worked, & have leisured at.
Unfortunately, others take that the wrong way. I can never explain enough in written word how I feel about a particular subject to my feelings extent.
If you, or any others, met me in person, it would be easier to understand.
On various subjects, I've been the 'go to' person by my family, work colleagues, & friends. My knowledge of 'left field' subjects is what's different. I'll give you an example.
I've got a big, thick book which is the printed version of the Symposium that was held to discuss 'The Effects of Volcanic Ash on Aircraft'. This was in the mid '80's, but it's still relevant today, due Mt Ruang eruptions. Volcanism &/or aircraft/aviation are just two of my 'passions'.
Anyway, those who read these words, may get to 'know' me 'better'. I can only hope.
Enough 'boring bits' from me now. Cheers, & again, my thanks!
I only wear lipstick, when I go out these days, & VERy occasionally I wear foundation. On those evenings Iíll wash my face under the shower, with soap, all other times I splash my face morning & night, with COLD water, 3 or 4, without fail.
