To Cleanse or REALLY Cleanse…that is the question

Facial CleansingAs a medical aesthetician, I can’t help but notice everyone’s skin. I can tell who has a skincare routine and who does not. If you have to ask what a skincare routine is… you don’t have one.

I can tell who uses a resurfacing agent and who does the bare minimum when it comes to skincare. It’s no secret that as we age, we change. Your skin is a great example of this. I’m sure as you look through photos of yourself from 5 or even 10 years ago (by the way, 2003 was 10 years ago…) you notice a major difference in your skin compared to now. No one said it better than Dolly Parton in the movie Steel Magnolias “time marches on and eventually you realize it’s marching across your face.”

Sad, but true, but you can do a few simple things that will laugh in the face of father time.

First things first, you’re an adult and it’s no longer acceptable to go to bed with your make-up on, and definitely don’t try and attempt touching up yesterday’s make-up…start over…wash your face!

A thorough cleanse is imperative to every woman’s routine, and, yes, for preventative measures, every woman should have a skincare routine. If you’re not taking care of your skin, there’s no better time than the present, so start now and start here!

The Clarisonic PRO face and body brush system is an easy and excellent skin-improving option that not only slows aging indicators but can also help repair the skin by providing a better cleanse, which thoroughly prepares the skin for products and/or treatments that follow. Thus you get better results!

Your skin, and scientific research, will conclude that healthy skin begins with:

  • A CLEAN YOU CAN FEEL: You know that squeaky-clean feeling you get when you first clean a glass tabletop or a window? That’s exactly what I experienced after my first use with my Clarisonic! Personally, I have an oily skin type and I felt this really cut through the grease of my skin and purged my pores. The top of my nose was the most sensitive but this is also where most of my blackheads were. The sonic motion helps by working with the natural elasticity of the skin rather than working against it by pulling or stretching and causing further damage. The deep clean also helps to rid the skin of free radicals which oxidize and age the skin, similar to when an apple or avocado turns brown after a few minutes the inner part has been exposed. A thorough cleanse helps to…
  • PREPARE THE SKIN FOR TREATMENT: Whether it be an expensive topical product, microdermabrasion, or even a laser hair removal treatment, the skin benefits the most when it is clean. Why? Well, scientifically, clean skin can absorb product at higher rate because pores are not blocked by past impurities, like dead skin cells and yesterday’s make up. Better absorption of product increases efficacy and products are able to perform at their fullest potential, yielding better results. The Clarisonic not only cleanses the skin but also provides exfoliation, or, a gentle resurfacing of the skin which will…
  • REDUCE APPEARANCE OF SUN DAMAGE: We all suffer from sun damage in one way or another. Sun damage can manifest in fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin color, and rough skin texture. What many people fail to realize is that it begins with how you cleanse. For example, retinoids are a fantastic tool to combat sun damage. It rids the skin of the oldest, dullest skin cells and reveals the new, fresh skin underneath by fading age spots and building collagen. However, it would be a bit harder for the skin to utilize this amazing product if it had to pull it down through layers of yesterday’s impurities, dead skin cells, and the five layers of the epidermis. There would barely be any product left to utilize by the time it arrived at its destination.

We must not forget that our skin, although a protective agent, must be cared for. The Clarisonic system is a great step towards healthy skin!
