Proper skin cleansing is arguably the most important step in your at-home skincare ritual. Unfortunately, proper cleansing is often dismissed in favor of a quick makeup wipe or manual cleansing, both of which can leave dirt oil trapped in pores. A buildup of dirt and oil can damage your skin’s health and appearance, keeping your skincare products from working properly and making makeup application a challenge. At Advanced Laser Clinic, we recommend Clarisonic Skin Cleansing Systems for at-home cleansing. These easy-to-use, highly effective skincare brushes remove six times more makeup, dirt and oil than most manual cleansing methods.
What is Clarisonic?
Clarisonic is an electronic cleansing brush for your face. The brush generates more than 300 movements per second, removing six times more dirt, oil and makeup than washing with a washcloth or your hands. Clarisonic brushes are small, portable and easy to clean, and you can also keep them in the shower for easy cleansing.
Is Clarisonic Safe to Use on Sensitive Skin?
If you’re prone to breakouts, redness or irritation, you might hesitate to use a high-powered brush on your face. However, Clarisonic is fully customizable, with several different brush head options for different skin types. The brush also comes with two speeds—delicate, for everyday washing and sensitive skin, and power cleanse, for more intense cleansing and makeup removal. Ultimately, Clarisonic is safe for sensitive skin. However, if you have damaged skin or rosacea, talk to one of our experts about whether Clarisonic is right for you.
Does Clarisonic Work for Acne Treatment?
Cleansing is obviously a critical part of acne treatment, which results from oil and sebum buildup in the pores. However, some clients worry that Clarisonic will spread bacteria or irritate existing acne. That’s not the case. Clarisonic’s thorough cleansing ensures that your acne products can fully penetrate the skin, easing acne over time. You may notice a few more pimples when you start using Clarisonic, but those pimples probably aren’t the result of the brush. In fact, they’ve likely been lurking under your skin’s surface for days. They appear quickly due to the stimulation of the skin. Fortunately, they also disappear quickly, and Clarisonic will help prevent future breakouts.
Does Clarisonic Exfoliate the Skin?
Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells during the day, and Clarisonic helps wash away those cells. However, many exfoliating products remove more cells than your skin would naturally shed, which can be problematic if used too frequently. Clarisonic is powerful, yet gentle on the skin, and it won’t over-exfoliate, even if used every day. Instead, you’ll get a micro-firming face massage that will help your skin feel firmer and smoother without being too harsh.
How Do I Use Clarisonic?
Make sure to use enough cleanser and water with your Clarisonic. You’ll want to fill up the brush’s entire inner circle with a dollop of cleanser about the size of a quarter, and it’s best to continually add more water to the brush head as you wash.
