Email is a huge part of our lives right now and it's one more thing we need to keep organised, Let's face it, are you one of those people who always volunteer their email for a sign up? Attend an event, sign up. Get service at a pharmacy, sign up. If the kiosk had a sign up you know you would too. But now look, you have 3000 messages in your inbox. Let’s be honest. You will not read all those.
Declutter your inbox today with these easy steps:
1. Delete all emails sent to you one month earlier
If you are not referring to them, delete them
2. Use the labels provided for you by your email service
This is an easy way to spot what’s important. And can we talk about how each and every email is marked important? No. Not now.
3. Delete all expired emails
If your friends were organizing a snap dinner last week and it happened, it’s time to delete that email. Records are good but learn to spot what will be useful later rather than keep everything
4. Unsubscribe from newsletters that you do not read
Maybe you are telling yourself, ‘you never know I might just buy this bag that’s on offer at Neiman Marcus’, let go for now and sign up again when you will actually do it.
How else do you declutter in this tech age?
Exfoliation is the process of removing the oldest dead skin cells from its outermost surface. This clears the skin and allows products to be absorbed easily. It makes your skin smooth glow from the inside even without that highlighter.
It’s important to exfoliate at least twice a week.
Here are four products you can try on your skin. Always remember to do a skin test before applying any product to a large area of your skin.
Apply on your skin and rub in circular motion. Rinse and proceed with your skin regimen. This is a highly manual process so remember scrub gently.
Popular ones in the local supermarkets include Eden’s and St. Ives Apricot Scrub
Exfoliating creams are said to be gentle when compared to a scrub because it’s not a manual process. Apply onto clean, dry skin. Let it sit for the required amount of time and rinse.
3. Peel off mask
The mask lifts blackheads and dead skin off the surface of your skin. This clears the pores and allows product to get absorbed easily.
4. Exfoliator gel
This product is applied to clean skin. After you let it sit for 15 seconds rub your face with your fingertips. This gets rid of the dead skin and you will see it when you rinse your face. Get it from Amazon, see link here http://amzn.com/B0048UFTOU
Make sure to follow the instructions on the label.
