Women across the country are raving about their deep-cleaning rituals. While there are many approaches to deep cleaning – the oil method, microdermabrasion, etc. – Clarisonic and other soft-bristle sonic products are often the most effective, since they don’t include harsh exfoliants, they don’t add oil to the skin, and they’re great for all skin types.
Below, is a list of some of the advantages you’ll see by adopting daily Clarisonic Mia use or a similar deep-cleaning ritual.
1. Remove six times more makeup than manual cleaning.
Most women know it’s important to remove makeup before going to sleep. Otherwise, clogged pores and pimples are likely to appear by morning. Furthermore, when we sleep our body temperature rises and our pores open, meaning dirt and grease can get even deeper into our skin.
A deep skin cleaning solution like the Clarisonic Mia doesn’t take much time – just a minute of sonic soft bristle action will do. In contrast, manual cleaning removes six times less makeup, meaning you’re six times more likely to see blemished, blotchy, dull skin.
2. Fewer pimples, whiteheads and blackheads.
Clogged pores cause all of these undesirable skin growths. Skin continually sheds dead cells to make way for new cells. The problem is that these old, flaky skin cells can clog pores. Especially if the skin’s natural oil (sebum) is in over-production, clogged pores can become infected. Next, a pimple, whitehead or blackhead is formed.
Deep skin cleaning is the best preventative way to fight acne, blackheads and whiteheads. By using a Clarisonic brush for just a minute each day (or every other day for sensitive skin), you can sweep away dead skin and make way for radiant new skin cells to shine, thereby preventing clogged pores and the blemishes they cause.
3. Rids skin of pollutants and toxins.
Makeup isn’t the only thing that can clog up your pores. Every day, your skin is exposed to air-borne toxins and pollutants that can cause inflammation and redness. Offset the effects of modern life by using your Clarisonic regularly.
4. Skin care products absorb deeper.
Dermatologists recommend applying moisturizers daily to protect skin, treat and prevent dryness and improve texture. However, if your pores are clogged with dead skin cells, moisturizer penetrates to only the first, or perhaps the second, layer of skin. By deep cleaning regularly with a Clarisonic or Clarisonic Mia brush, you open the skin to accept moisturizer on deeper levels. In general, well-hydrated skin is healthier looking.
5. Pores appear smaller.
When pores are clear of toxins, grease, sweat, makeup and other clogging substances, they generally look much smaller.
6. Fine lines and wrinkles reduced.
As skin ages, dryness tends to set in. Deep cleaning with a Clarisonic or Clarisonic Mia brush opens up skin to receive moisturizer on a deeper level. This revives skin and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. Indeed, many women discover that their fine lines have completely disappeared after only a couple of weeks of daily deep cleaning with a Clarisonic product.
7. Increased circulation and radiance.
Dermatologists have long advised clients to chug plenty of water throughout the day to improve circulation. Exceptional circulation lends a fresh, radiant look to skin. A sonic, gentle cleaning aid such as the Clarisonic Mia helps boost circulation by removing obstacles, such as clogged pores, while also allowing hydrating moisturizer to penetrate deeper into the skin.
8. Gentle exfoliation that’s safe for all skin types.
Microdermabrasion is often compared to sonic brushes as a technique that can deeply clean skin. However, there’s one major difference between these two approaches – namely, force. Microdermabrasion basically sands down the top layers of skin to make it appear smoother. This procedure can cause redness and inflammation, and skin can take some time to heal. If you have sensitive skin, microdermabrasion can actually cause acne breakouts by irritating your skin.
In contrast, Clarisonic products feature soft bristles that gently whisk away dirt, grease and dead skin cells. After using a Clarisonic Mia or Clarisonic classic for just a couple of weeks, people of all skin types can enjoy more luminous, clear skin.
9. Establish a nurturing, doable daily ritual.
Taking care of yourself feels good. And since it only takes a minute out of your day to use your Clarisonic brush, you can enjoy this daily “me time” without worrying about taking away time to tackle your to-do list.
