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.
Here is how I got the best results with my Clarisonic Mia 2.
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.
- Forehead 20 seconds
- Nose & Chin 20 seconds
- One Cheek 10 seconds
- 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.
