Pregnancy can wreak havoc on your hormones and your skin. The Clarisonic’s patented Sonic Technology removes 6x more makeup than manual cleansing alone by gently gliding over the skin. The sonic micro-message loosens and removes dirt and oil from pores, clarifying skin without harsh chemicals therefore, improving skin texture. The Sonic technology removes pollutants, oil and bacteria that accumulate on the skin giving a sonic boost to your skin care products and reducing the need for harsh chemicals. Dr. Robb lends his expertise as he answers the question, are the Clarisonic and Opal safe to use during pregnancy and on my bump?
Dr. Robb says that both the Clarisonic and Opal are safe to use on your face for daily cleansing during pregnancy. It is not recommended that you use the Clarisonic on your growing baby bump because it’s a very delicate area, something that is very precious. You could consult you OBGYN but we hope your baby is going to know the feeling when they get older and start using their own Clarisonic.
Dr. Robb also recently told us about what age your child can start using the Clarisonic.
Have you ever been invited to a last minute client meeting on ponytail day, or forgot about happy hour with the girls with no time to freshen up? These can happen to anyone but they don’t have to stop you from looking and feeling your best. We’ve put together a list of the essential items every woman should have at her disposal in case of emergency. Remember, a great skin care regimen can’t be replaced by these, but these could help you in a pinch!
Q-tips: These are a life saver; use them with your hand lotion to remove any smudged makeup to keep you from having dreaded raccoon eyes.
Sewing kit: Button fall off or get a rip in your outfit? A sewing kit is a great way to make repairs on-the-go.
Double Sided tape: Not quite on the sewing bandwagon? Double-sided tape can also do the trick to fix rips or keep your clothes in place.
Stain remover: Don’t let a spill ruin your outfit; keep a travel stain remover on hand for those unfortunate mishaps.
Blotting tissues: Oily skin can make you look tired, give your skin a quick refresh by removing excess oil. Even if you don’t have your compact, your complexion will thank you and you will arrive fresh faced.
Hand lotion: The stresses of a busy day and the harsh soaps found in public bathrooms can wreak havoc on your skin. Enter hand lotion. You can also use a small drop to slick back unruly flyaways for a sleek, sophisticated ponytail.
Lip stain or gloss: Brighten up your lips and use a little extra on your cheeks to give your face a rosy glow.
What else would you add to your beauty survival kit?
First things first, Dr. Robb explains Keratosis Pilaris and then answers Tamica’s question about using the body brush to help with this skin condition. If you have ever wondered if the Clarisonic is suitable to use with skin conditions, watch the video to find out!
Dr. Robb says this is commonly known as K.P. or chicken skin because it looks like a plucked chicken. People with K.P. usually get bumps on the back of the arms or the sides of the legs. The Clarisonic is great for smoothing those out, exfoliating the skin, keeping your skin soft and smooth, and then you can apply your moisturizer. Sometimes you can go to the doctors for this condition and they have certain types of acids in those moisturizers to help soften that area and keep it soft and smooth. The Clarisonic body brush is the first step to that.
Congratulations to Tamica Damara who has won a Clarisonic Mia for submitting this question!
It’s that time of year when everyone reflects on the past 12-months and tries to think of one thing they will resolve to complete in the upcoming year. We’ve compiled some beauty resolutions that if kept, will keep you feeling and looking wonderful well into the New Year.
Get more sleep: Fully restful sleep ranging from 6-8 hours will not only have you feeling refreshed, it will invigorate your entire body. Sleep gives your body time to heal and the supercharge you need to get through a busy day. They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing.
Drink more water: The benefits of drinking water are enormous. Water flushes out your system removing impurities from your body and skin. If drinking 8 glasses of water sounds horribly boring, add lime, lemon or orange slices to spice it up. A sprig of mint or slice of cucumber also makes for a refreshing drink. Cheers!
Commit to a skin care routine: Start the year off strong with a dedicated routine for your skin. Look into products formulated for your skin type and determine any specific needs your skin may need whether it’s acne or more hydration. Once you determine what your skin needs, stick to your routine daily. Don’t forget your SPF!
Laugh more: Laughing and smiling will help you not only look better but you will feel better too. Laughter lightens a room and makes everyone around you happier.
What is your feel-good resolution for 2012?
“I’d rather take care of my skin than have to cover it all up with makeup”, this beauty truth comes from none other than country music star Faith Hill. InStyle magazine talks beauty with Faith, and we learn that her Clarisonic is the secret to her flawless complexion! Faith says, “It’s like cleaning my face times 10 way deeper than the washcloth.”
We also get some insight into her other favorite beauty items. Being huge admirers of Faith’s timeless beauty, we took copious notes, take a peek here!
Faith also shared her best beauty advice saying she drinks about 90 ounces of water a day! At Clarisonic, we know keeping yourself and your skin hydrated is important. She also credits her mile long lashes to L’Oreal Paris, Voluminous Mascara; and her youthful flush to Kevin Aucoin, The Pure Powder Glow in Shadore.
We are so excited to have Faith Hill as a part of our Clarisonic Family, we think her luminous skin looks flawless and we bet her handsome husband Tim McGraw agrees. We are happy to see she is experiencing the benefits of the Clarisonic and can’t wait to see the Sonerific results in her next music video.
The Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System was recently featured on ABC’s Good Morning America in a segment titled “The Hot New Skin Treatment”. Consumer Technology Contributer for ABC News, Becky Worley, did her own test drive of the Clarisonic to prove the system’s deep cleansing, reducing pores and fine lines capabilities.
Check out Becky’s experience with the Clarisonic below to see her results!
In her test drive, Becky used the Clarisonic on the right side of her face for five days and just soap and water on the other side. Becky said the Clarisonic side felt cleaner, and she thought she saw a very subtle reduction in the appearance of fine lines. She also tried the fluorescent makeup test and commented that Clarisonic did an amazing job removing the makeup while the soap and water side did not.
Becky also acknowledged less expensive face brushes on the market but preferred the Clarisonic because it was more invigorating! Becky also mentions the Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System which is the smaller, travel-friendly model and the Clarisonic Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System. Check out the different Clarisonic Systems available to you on our website.

Blackheads are yellow or blackish bumps or plugs caused by excess oils on your skin. In this video, Dr. Robb explains what the Clarisonic can do to help!
Dr. Robb says, that Clarisonic has never actually done a blackhead study to officially document it’s benefits for reducing blackheads; but we know that overtime yes it will. He says that blackheads are really hard and tough to get at, but what you should try is our Deep Pore Cleansing brush head. Its patented dual action technology allows for deeper and better cleansing than washing the face by hand.
