Standing in the shower like Patrick Bateman holding the Clarisonic face cleaner to my face as it whirls and beeps away, leaves me thinking I should be in a scene from the film 'American Psycho'.
The Clarisonic cleaner is a solid, waterproof bit of kit which is very gentle on the skin. It shows how you can exfoliate without being too rigourous. As men, we like to sandpaper our faces in order for them to feel exfoliated. With this you gently move it around your face not applying too much pressure. You wet the brush head and your face and put a cleanser on your face or brush head, whichever you prefer. Push the button and start around the cheek/nose area. It beeps when it is time to move to a different part of the face and then stops so you can’t over clean your face. It all takes about 60 seconds. It has another detachable head that can be used on the body, and you can change the speed settings to increase or decrease the head speed. I think the Clarisonic cleaner would be great if you are prone to acne breakouts on your body particularly the back.
I would recommend using the Clarisonic twice a week for exfoliating your skin. Anymore and it will leave the skin too dry stripping it of any oils. If you have extremely oily skin then maybe use it more. I would suggest applying quite a rich moisturiser after - the Clarisonic also allows for creams and moisturisers to be absorbed better. I found my skin looked much smoother and healthier after a couple of weeks of using it and my pores were less visible which encourages me to carry on using it.
