Ask Dr. Robb: Explain the difference between brush heads.
Dr. Robb is displaying a Clarisonic PRO with a Sensitive Brush Head. All Clarisonic handles come with a Sensitive Brush Head attached. The Sensitive Brush Head is the middle of the road brush head. The Clarisonic was designed with different brush heads because everybody’s skin is different, and throughout the year your skin changes based on the seasons. Sometimes you may want to use the Sensitive Brush Head, other times you want to switch over and try the Normal Brush Head. Guys love the Normal Brush head – it has the gray base. The Normal Brush Head is great for applying shaving cream and then shave afterward and have an incredible smooth shave. The other brush head that we have for a different skin type is the Delicate Brush Head it has a blue base. The Delicate Brush Head was actually launched in Japan to start with, because the Japanese have very sensitive skin. But now it is so popular, it is sold throughout the world. For those who have super delicate skin.
We changed our focus on Brush Heads, we went from different skin types (Sensitive, Normal and Delicate) to different skin conditions. This is one of them, see the blue ring of bristles? It is called, the Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head. It is great for those people who have oily skin and those congested pores around their nose that are hard to reach, and on the tops of the cheeks. This has a different movement than our other brush heads, the bristles in the center move one direction, while the outside bristles move the other direction. This allows you to get focused cleansing in very concentrated areas right around the pores. Then we’ve gone to the Acne Brush Head it’s a great product if you have acne conditions because it creates more foam, and bubbles. When you use the Acne Brush Head you will see more lathering, this is because there are more bristles per tuft. Finally the last brush head is the big one called the Body Brush. If you have a PRO handle it knows it is a Body Brush and changes the speed and timer moves a little more vigorous. Great for the elbows, knees, back area and moves at different frequency than all the other facial brushes.
Those are the differences between the Brush Heads pick out which one fits your skin best and go for it!
Super models such as Miranda Kerr and Molly Sims have been onto this trend for a while. The secret is now out as to how they get their smooth fresh looking skin. Dry brushing is a very simple and effective way to stimulate your skin and increase blood flow. Soft bristled brushes are perfect for dry brushing (like the Body Brush on our PLUS system).
To start your skin transformation, begin brushing gently in a circular motion while your skin is dry. Brushing on dry skin will allow for more skin to slough off. After working from your feet up; take a shower to remove any dead skin and finish with a good moisturizer for extremely smooth skin! Dry brushing has been known to help your skin look younger, giving you a fresh glow your serums and creams work better too. Have you ever tried dry brushing? If so, what do you think?
