Welcome to day eleven of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing Shower and Skin Care Products.
Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead.
Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.
For me, shower products will be super easy, skincare in the another hand I have way more to go thru.
I would start with the one that won’t take long. Go thru it all, get rid of whatever you aren’t liking or using. For skincare, it’s the same process, accept I would check the expiry date as well. (Tip: if your products don’t have an actual expiry date but have dates like 12M, 24M, etc make it a habit to check these dates before opening and then with a permanent marker write the date you opened it. This will insure you don’t forget the date you started using it and will know if it has passed the date.) I also have skin care in the shower that stay there. Those are my shower skin care items.
With my skincare, it took me longer as I accumulated so much. Reason for this is since I hit 35 years old I really got into skincare products more then ever. Also, with my skin type I need to rotate products, every 6 months I change my products as I start noticing less of the benefits. Not saying they are not good products, but once my skin gets to using it after some time I need to change it up. (I do go back to them.) I also have acne prone skin so lots of products and masks I have collected. I also had products, that I bought that I didn’t think worked or didn’t like as much as whatever current products I was using, but held onto them. So, this is the reason this Skincare would take me much longer. I took 5 mins if not less with my shower products, and even with 5 mins. The remaining of the time was spent on my skincare products. I really went in through them, checking dates, and really being honest with myself about if I would use them (for certain ones).
Doesn’t it feel amazing to purge? I love that feeling, clean and clear spaces.
