Keep It Clean!

After a long winter, your skin likely looks a little dull. One of the most important parts of any skincare routine is deeply cleansing your face. Especially in big cities like Chicago, it's important to clean out all the dirt and grime before you hit the sheets.

What many estheticians now recommend is the Clarisonic cleansing brush. (I currently have the Mia design.) As one esthetician told me, you can buy all the expensive creams you want, but if you're just applying them on dead skin, they can't penetrate. That's where Clarisonic comes in. The company boasts that in just 60 seconds, the brush removes 6 times more makeup and 2 times more dirt and oil than cleansing with just your hands. (Often times my brush has the makeup or dirt on it to prove it!) Your skin will feel cleaner and healthier than ever before. If you have sensitive skin like mine, you'll probably need a sensitive or delicate brush. 

The brushes are pricey, usually around $150, but keep in mind companies like the Skin Store, often have deals for 20% off and free shipping. And as I tell people, can you really put a price on your skin?

If you want to try a cheaper version, several friends have bought Oil of Olay's Pro X Cleansing Brush and they rave about it. Those run around $29.99.

Let me know your favorite way to cleanse!
