Clarisonic users often wonder if they should use an exfoliator with their Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Systems. The Clarisonic provides a new level of cleansing that is more effective than manual cleansing and therefore people are unsure if an exfoliator in addition to the Clarisonic would be too harsh for their skin.
Exfoliation can come in the form of a facial scrub or more chemical-based like a toner containing salicylic acid. Both aim to brighten your skin by sloughing away dead skin cells and increasing the rate of cell turnover.
The Clarisonic can remove up to six times more makeup than manual cleansing and is gentle enough to use twice daily (unlike some exfoliants). With this in mind, you may or may not want to have an exfoliant in your skincare routine. We always strive to keep in mind that personal preference and skin types vary. Therefore, we recommend that if you are going to use an exfoliant, don’t use one with jagged exfoliating particles such as shells with your Clarisonic. Using soft, round and fine exfoliating particles will be gentler in combination with the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System.
