Is the Clarisonic good for wrinkles and anti-aging? We hear this question a lot at CB Towers. Although people are generally aware of the Clarisonic's skin cleansing abilities, there is always a little confusion as to how this translates into tackling wrinkles and preventing aging. We're going to clear up some of the confusion today with this Q&A blog post – and if you have any questions you'd like us to answer, make sure you leave us a comment and we'll try to answer it in a future post!
So, is the Clarisonic good for wrinkles and anti-aging?
The Clarisonic works by using patented micro-massage to gently open the pores and flush out any nasties that may be lurking below the surface. While washing with your hands will only scrub away the surface impurities, the Clarisonic helps to flush out your pores and leave you with visibility soft and glowing skin. And how does this prevent wrinkles?
First up, wrinkles and fine lines will be exaggerated if the skin isn't completely clean. While you may think your makeup remover wipe has taken care of your makeup, a quick swipe across the skin with a splash of toner on cotton wool will often reveal that your skin is far from clean. If this makeup debris is allowed to accumulate (ew, gross, we know!) it will settle in the fine lines on your face and make them look much, much worse! The Clarisonic takes off the day and then takes off the years.
And what about the anti-aging benefits?
When you wash your face with your hands and a splash of soap and water, you're leaving a lot of excess oil and dirt on your skin. If you then apply a moisturiser or serum to your face, the product won't be properly absorbed because your pores are already blocked. When you cleanse with the Clarisonic, you have a fresh canvas. Your skincare products will be properly absorbed, and you'll actually find yourself using a little less than usual.
