Thanks to stress, hormones, a new environment, and God knows what else in my post-grad life, the past four months have literally been an ongoing battle with my skin. I switched to Bare Escentuals makeup, which I LOVE, and have gotten some routine chemical peels (at a certified dermatologist, don’t worry… I don’t let just ANYONE touch my face). But after all that, I still couldn’t “kick” my weekly breakouts. One day, I’d be blemish-free, and the next, I’d looked the surface on planet Mars.
If you’ve ever gotten a chemical peel, you know that the 30 seconds of pain and three days of peeling are really worth it. I can’t say enough good things about SeaMist Skin Rejuvenation Center. While I don’t want to jinx myself, I (think) my face is finally starting to clear up! The difference? I’ve been washing my face with my new Clarisonic.
Up until now, I’ve been using all the “right” products and I thought, doing all the “right” things. I’ve avoided gritty cleansers because I know they irritate my skin, but I never felt like I could really clean my skin without scrubbing down hard. But now, my new Clarisonic does the “scrubbing” for me. It’s not harsh, and truthfully, it’s not even scrubbing. I was skeptical at first because as a picker and a scrubber, I didn’t think it was doing enough. But believe me, it is. It’s using a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently remove six times more makeup and two times more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone. The Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System is AMAZING. If you’re skin is half as stubborn as mine, trust me; you will love it.
