Throughout the day our skin is exposed to a tremendous amount of oil, dirt, sun, sweat and other bacteria. We know we need to clear our skin of this layer of build-up each and every night before bed. But how?
Finding the perfect nighttime skincare routine is not an easy task! You may be asking yourself questions like: How many steps should there be? What is the best order to complete the steps? What products should I be using? Am I using too many products? I’m tired; how long will this routine take? The thoughts go on and on.
The most important step to any nighttime skincare routine is the first step…. cleansing! In just 60 seconds, your Clarisonic cleansing device will remove the build-up of makeup, dirt and oil 6 times better than cleansing with hands alone. As a result, the Clarisonic provides increased absorption for the products you apply in the remaining steps of your routine. And just like that the first step in your nighttime skincare routine is complete. It’s that easy!
If you plan to add an additional step focused on reducing fine lines and wrinkles, we now have a sonic method for accelerating the reduction of those stubborn fine lines and wrinkles while building your skin’s resilience over time. Our Clarisonic Opal gently taps a soft silicone tip to the skin around your eye to maximize the absorption of eye serums and wrinkle-reducing creams in a way that’s not possible with your finger alone.

We would love to hear how your Clarisonic fits into your nighttime skincare routine!
We asked for your skincare concerns and you answered! In the last month you have been weighing in on your most important skin care concerns through our online Skin Care Quiz. There is no doubt we are all striving for perfect skin so we asked, “If your skin could make a wish, what would it be?” Over 14,000 people (or 21% of the men and women taking the Clarisonic Skin Quiz) are looking for ways to “Shrink my pores so my skin is softer and smoother.”
With so many Clarisonic users interested in minimizing the appearance of their pores, we thought we would look deeper into the question, how do you minimize the appearance of enlarged or clogged pores?
Let’s start by gaining an understanding of what pores are and their purpose. Bottom line, we need our pores. These tiny little openings allow oil and sweat to reach your skin’s surface. The good news is, while we cannot completely eliminate our pores we can make them appear smaller!
A simple Google search on this topic populates several products and regiments claiming to shrink and even eliminate your pores. In reality, the best way to reduce the appearance of pores is to keep your skin clean!
Why is clean skin so important?
Day and night, our skin is subject to oil, perspiration, dirt, and makeup. These combine to make a sticky, stubborn pore-clogging layer that can make our skin look unhealthy, feel rough and even cause irritation. This layer of film also acts as a barrier to skincare products resulting in reduced effectiveness. Cleansing your skin at least once or twice a day helps to dislodge any unwanted dirt, sweat, oil or makeup. Your pores will now be free of dirt and grime making your skin softer, smoother and allowing skincare products to absorb more deeply and evenly.
We are happy to lend a hand in the fight against enlarged and clogged pores. The first question our founders asked when developing the Clarisonic was “how do you unplug a pore?” and from that it evolved to “how do you transform the look and feel of your skin?”
How do Clarisonic Facial Cleansing Devices unplug a pore?
Clarisonic’s patented, perfected and loved Sonic Technology gently oscillates back and forth to physically flex the pores, loosening trapped debris and reducing pore appearance. Additionally, excess oily patches and shine are removed for a supersonic deep clean without irritation. Every Clarisonic facial cleansing device cleanses skin 6x better than hands alone to leave skin softer and smoother.
To take pore minimizing to the next level—check out our — Deep Pore Cleansing Detoxifying Solution, which combines a Clarisonic Mia 2 facial cleansing device with our Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head, Deep Pore Daily Cleanser and Deep Pore Detoxifying Clay Mask. Our Deep Pore solution uses our traditional sonic cleansing technology with additional powerful fluid forces to gently remove surface debris and immediately reduce the appearance of your pores by 25%.

S.M.S.: Save My Skin – In Six Quick Questions
After hearing about Clarisonic for years in magazines, as part of celebrity must-have beauty tips, and on blogs, you’ve finally decided that it is time to get a Clarisonic of your own. Your best friend told you her skin feels amazingly soft after using it, your sister swears she looks years younger and your dermatologist recommended Clarisonic as part of your skin care regime. OK. You’re convinced. But now you wonder…Which Clarisonic is right for you?
Since Clarisonic developed the very first sonic facial cleansing device back in 2001, they’ve launched a range of face and body cleansing devices, brush heads and cleansers, designed to improve any and all skin types. Now—we all love options, but we also love our time. So to help us all find the right products from a brand we trust, and find them quickly—Clarisonic has introduced a quick new Skin Care Quiz.

Do you need a solution for problem pores? Want to smooth fine lines? Or like me, have you wished for a giant eraser to get rid of dark spots? Well, Clarisonic wants to help you look fantastic and feel confident—and the quiz is a great place to start.
I answered six questions in about three minutes, and voilà! I got my own personal power trio: the three products that best complement each other to improve my skin.

Do you want a Clarisonic but aren’t sure which system to buy? Dr. Robb tells us whether there are cleansing differences between the systems. For more information to help you make your decision, check out Dr. Robb’s post on the difference between the sonic cleansing systems!
Dr. Robb says, yes you will! The technology is the same whether you have Mia or Clarisonic PLUS or PRO. They use the same Sonic Technology to oscillate your skin back and forth over 300 times a second to deeply cleanse you skin, and get your skin six times better cleansed than you can by hand.
One of the most common skin conditions that we encounter with Clarisonic users is Keratosis Pilaris (KP) which is commonly referred to as “chicken skin.” It is genetic follicular condition that typically appears as rough bumps on the skin. Most frequently it appears on the back and outer sides of the arms and can occur on any body part with the exception of glabrous skin which is found on the palms/soles of the feet). It is very rare for this condition to appear on the face.
Keratosis Pilaris results when the body produces excess keratin which is a natural protein in the skin. This excess keratin surrounds the hair follicles in the pores which forms the bumps.
Many Clarisonic users have reported a decrease in the appearance of their KP bumps after using the body brush attachment that comes standard with the Clarisonic PLUS. The Broke-Ass Bride even used the Clarisonic to reduce the appearance of her bumps just in time for the big day!

Eczema is a skin condition that involves scaly and itchy rashes. Other symptoms can include blistering, leathery skin, intense itching, a rash and skin coloring including more or less coloring and redness.
Typically eczema is caused by hypersensitivity in the skin which can lead to itchy and scaly skin that in the long-term can cause irritation. Eczema tends to be hereditary. Those prone to eczema should be cautious of dry skin, exposure to environmental irritants and water, stress and temperature changes.
Fortunately, depending on the stage of eczema it can be treated. Treatments can include but are not limited to moisturizers, soaps, creams, ointments and oral prescription medications.
If you are currently suffering from eczema like symptoms contact your dermatologist.

We get frequent inquiries as to whether or not the Clarisonic is safe for use with Rosacea. The good news is that the Clarisonic is safe for use with complicated skin conditions like Rosacea. For those of you not familiar Rosacea is a skin condition with symptoms that include inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead or eyelids. It can appear as redness, prominent spider-like blood vessels, swelling or skin eruptions. There is no specific cure for Rosacea.
Although there is no cure there are recommendations for a few precautions you can take to help avoid flare-ups. Avoid exposure to the sun and prolonged exertion in hot weather. Try to keep stress at a minimum using one of our quick stress relief suggestions. Finally, try to limit you intake of spicy foods, alcohol, and hot beverages.
