I don’t know about you all but sometimes I wonder if my skin got the message that I’m not a teenager anymore. I pile so much stuff on my face every night before I go to bed that no one within a five mile radius should have a breakout based on fumes alone! I by no means have the magic fix, but ever since I started using the Clarisonic Electric Face Brush my skin has improved overnight!
I have used the Clarisonic Mia for a while now and it gets the job done, so don’t worry about getting the one with all the fancy buttons. I start by splashing a little water on my face and putting my face wash on. Some people like to put it on the actual brush itself, but that’s too messy for me. Once you’re ready you just hit the button and start scrubbing. The Mia stays on continuously for one minute and you’ll want to spend 20 seconds on your forehead, 20 seconds on your nose/chin, and 10 seconds on each cheek. I don’t know the science behind it but there’s something about the vibrations that causes everything in your pores to come out which is good news for all of us because that means less breakouts!
I’ve gone a couple days without using it before thinking, “I don’t know if this is really making a difference. I’m going to skip it tonight.” Let me be the first to say, it does! My mom has always told me that exfoliation is key to good skincare and this does it better than anything I’ve tried without being too harsh for my sensitive skin. I know it’s expensive though, so if you’re not sure if you want to make the investment I’ll tell you my beauty on the cheap trick. The next time you’re at Costco, The Dollar Store, or anywhere else that’s not necessarily known for the thread count in their sheets get the cheapest washcloths they have. The more expensive ones are softer, so they don’t clean your skin as well and who wants to ruin all their nice washcloths with makeup? I keep a basket of them in my bathroom so I can just grab one and so I don’t get them mixed up with the nicer ones I give my guests. For my skin I have to use something other than just my hands to wash my face or else I don’t ever feel like it gets clean enough, which could be why I look like a freshman in high school when I get lazy and try to take shortcuts! Try my cheap washcloth trick and in the meantime save up for a Clarisonic! It’s worth it, I promise!
