In Topic: Is Clarisonic Worth The Money?

24 April 2015 - 02:13 PM

I have had a completely different experience with the clarisonic, which was ultimately what cleared my skin.
Two and a half years ago I had moderate acne (whiteheads, blackheads, red spots) on my cheeks, and t-zone that didn't seem to be clearing up no matter which products I tried (and I tried a lot).  In the Winter of 2012 I bought a clarisonic and after 3 months, my broken out skin was more controlled. The texture of my skin was much smoother and very soft, and the reddish pigmentation that my skin has suffered primarily on my cheeks was starting to even out more.
Fast forward to today. My skin is clear with no acne on my cheeks, occasional blemish on my t-zone, and the overall tone and texture of my skin is great. 


That is awesome!!!! How often do you use the clarisonic to cleanse?

 I use it every night, so just once a day. When I first started using it (a little over 2 years ago), I used it about 2-3 times a week for about 3 weeks before transitioning over to once a day just incase it could irritate my skin. I never have experienced irritation or issues with my clarisonic, and I can't imagine being without it!

In Topic: Dark Spots

    My skin is now clear, and the dark spots left behind by some of my acne is gone. It takes time for the skin to heal, but anything moisturizing should help. Make sure you are drinking enough water, because hydrated skin can regenerate quicker than thirsty skin. As for topics you could put on your skin, I would recommend Clinique's dark spot corrector, and Ponds cold cream.

   The dark spot corrector really does make a difference in the dark spots on your skin, but you have to make sure you are consistent with use. The ponds cold cream is just another added moisturizing face wash, but if you have a lotion you could use that as well. 


In Topic: Green Smoothies For Acne?

SociallyAwkward, eating veggies and fruits are good for you and if you prefer to drink them, do so! I have about 3-4 smoothies a week either in place of a meal or a smaller portion for a snack. In my green smoothie I pack in lots of kale (atleast 2 cups), 1/2 of an avocado (to make it creamy), a small kiwi, one pear and 1/2 of a green apple.

The first formula looks like it has a few more ingredients: Hamamelis Virginiana Bark/Leaf extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil and a few others. Typically, the less chemicals the better, but you should try the "new" formula out and see how it works for you.
