As the weather starts to change my skin care routine also changes. I wanted to share my step by step Fall skincare routine to achieve clear and confident skin using Clarisonic. Adding new products into my routine has given me the chance to see what really works to help clear up my skin.

First, I start with the Mia 1 Facial Cleansing Brush ($129). It is the perfect addition and has so many great benefits! The Clarisonic gently flexes the skin and flushes water and cleanser into pores. It removes dirt, oil and debris that age your skin and cause those awful breakouts. The Clarisonic works great for removing makeup and cleansing the skin. I was amazed at how much makeup was still left on my skin when only using my hands and soap to cleanse. The Clarisonic reaches deeper into the pores and removes the makeup. The Clarisonic facial cleansing device does not exfoliate (it’s a myth!) it sonic cleanses!

The one universal speed that cleans the skin six times better than hands alone! The vibration of the brush felt very nice on my skin, and it did tickle a little on my nose. I love using my Clarisonic everyday and it’s gently enough for twice a day use.

One of my favorite parts are the interchangeable facial brush heads. Each one is designed specifically to help with your skin’s concerns. Next, I attach the Acne Cleansing Brush head ($27). The plush bristles are gentle yet effective. The benefits are:

  • For sensitive, acne-prone skin
  • Extra-plush bristles
  • Gentle cleanse
  • Removes debris from pores

Another effective brush head is the Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head ($27). It’s great for all skin types and help minimize the appearance of pores. Having enlarged pores are the worst so I’m excited to see a difference in the appearance of mine. Loving the benefits to this brush:

  • Dual-action bristles provide pore cleansing
  • Flushes out dirt and debris when used with mask and cleanser
  • Skin appears smoother
  • Helps make pores appear smaller

The next step is cleanser. I add the Pore and Blemish Gel Cleanser ($19) to the brush head. Struggling to get rid of those stubborn breakouts? This powerful cleanser helps clear and prevent acne breakouts. Exactly what I have been searching for! It also reaches the appearance of pores and redness. I am excited to see how much my skin clears over time. The gel lathers up nicely and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. It’s formulated with 2% salicylic acid and Lipo Hydroxy acid but won’t over dry skin.

How to Use:

Prior to the first use, charge the Clarisonic Mia handle for 18 hours.

  1.      Wet your skin and the brush head with warm water.
  2.      Liberally apply cleanser to your skin or to the brush head.
  3.      Push the on/off button to turn on your device.
  4.      Gently move the brush head in small circular motions, beginning on the forehead, then   moving to the nose/chin area and the cheeks. Let the device gently glide over skin 
  5.      The device will automatically shut off after one minute.
Brush Head Care:

Clarisonic recommends replacing the brush head every 3 months as the bristles become fatigued and less effective over time. Once a week, remove the brush head from the handle and rinse with warm soapy water to remove any residue.

TIP: Use the brush head cap to easily remove and attach the brush head with a simple twist.

The texture of my skin has improved immensely! I love how smooth and clear my skin is. Those stubborn breakouts are the worst and can really put a damper on your day, but I’m so thankful for Clarisonic and their powerful and effective products. Their products are helping my to fight my acne breakouts and achieve brighter and healthier skin!

    Thank you for such a nice article. I will link back from my blog to your article.
    I would like to add a point as well. Prescription azelaic acid medications are
    wonderful options to fight acne while pregnant and while breast-feeding.
