  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can my Clarisonic help with blackheads?

    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.

  • Are You Making the Switch to Greek Yogurt?

     

    You might have noticed the increasing number of options for Greek yogurt in grocery store; and there’s a reason for it: People are discovering the added benefits of this particular style of yogurt. Greek yogurt is similar to regular yogurt in that they are both high in calcium and are made by fermenting milk with live bacteria cultures. However, Greek yogurt is strained to remove liquid whey which also results in removing the lactose. The result is a thicker, more protein-rich yogurt with less sugar.

    Making the switch from regular, fruit-flavored yogurt to a plain Greek yogurt might be a little difficult. The yogurt can have a little more tang and to get yourself accustomed to it, you may need to mix it with fruit, honey or nuts. This style of yogurt is also great paired with a curry or lamb dish as a tzatziki dip and with its thicker consistency, could be a great base for a dessert.

    With more protein, less sugar and more versatility, switching to Greek yogurt could be a healthy move this year.

  • Dry Skin: Remedies and Prevention Suggestions

    Dry skin is a struggle for many people, especially during the summer months. Summer can be tough on skin with applications of sunscreen, chlorine from pools and direct sunlight. If you struggle with dry skin in the summer, or year round, we have a few tips to help soothe and prevent dry skin.

    Moisturize on a daily basis
    Find a moisturizer that you like and apply it on a daily basis.

    Avoid scalding hot water in your bath and shower
    Although the hot water warms you up it can be very harsh on your skin. Try lowering the temperature in the bath and shower. Another great way to avoid dry skin is to include milk powder or oatmeal in the bath instead of using bubble bath.

    When you get out of the tub, pat dry
    Avoid rubbing after the bath or shower. Once you are towel dried be sure to apply a good body moisturizer to keep moisture locked inside throughout the day.

    Avoid itchy clothing
    If you are prone to dry skin avoid wearing clothing that includes fabrics that you find itchy or irritating

    Cleanse with your Clarisonic Skin Care System
    Cleansing with your face and body with the Clarisonic Skin Care System, can help reduce dry skin patches and leave your skin looking and feeling healthier. Be sure to replace your brush heads every three months for optimum cleansing.

    NOTE: Dry skin can be a result of a more complicated skin condition so be sure to consult your doctor if your symptoms worsen.
