How to get the best results with the Clarisonic Mia2

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to switch it up on you & share something different. I want to talk about skin care & what the Clarisonic Mia 2 has done for my beauty routine. I have used many other cleansing brushes such as the Clinique sonic & Proactive cleansing brush. In their defense both actually work great but I never really took care of either of them. For Christmas my hunny got me the new Clarisonic Mia2  so I could get back to a healthier fresh faced me & the results have been remarkable!

I’ve never really had the best skin. I was a picker & a popper as a teenager  ( ICK) which caused some small scaring as well as a lot of discoloration, black heads & occasional pimples. I noticed more of this especially after baby. Recently though I decided to take my skin care routine more seriously & put in the work. The result of this? A better face of course & I have to give my Clarionsic a lot of credit for it.

Make time for your skin care routine. You know the whole 2 minute teeth brushing rule? Well it’s kind of like that. You should be focusing on your face in sections. Like the photo from  Cheap Frills & Thrills suggests above, I recommend spending half the time you would on the tougher spots of your face then you would on the most sensitive places. The T timer on your brush will prompt you when to hit the next spot. Turn your brush on, Select your speed & follow these guidelines in coordination with the T timer.

  1. Forehead 20 seconds
  2. Nose & Chin 20 seconds
  3. One Cheek 10 seconds
  4. Second Cheek 10 seconds

Depending on the sensitivity of your skin should you use the more aggressive speed. As someone with normal skin I tend to use the normal speed once daily  & the quick speed once a week for a deeper clean.

Don’t over due it. Part of the reason I think my skin suffered as a teenager so badly is because I over did it. I scrubbed & scrubbed & used so many products on my face that it never got a chance to breathe and or recover. The problem was that I wanted immediate results & I thought going the 10 extra miles would do just that. Of course it back fired & only made my skin worse.
