clarisonic deep pore cleansing system

scar clearing beauty products

{The dream team}

I know most women probably suffer the same fate as me but every so often around that time of month I see a few pimples pop up on my complexion here and there. I’m well past the age of acne breakout outs but when these little critters arrive they usually leave behind a reminder that they were there.

{Clarisonic Deep Pore Detoxifying Solution}

I loathe pimple scarring! I’d rather not cake on the concealer to congest my skin so set out to find  a dream team of a skincare routine that would help make them disappear. First order of business. Cleansing. Perturbed by my constant failures of decongesting mask after mask I finally found a detoxifying routine that works. The new Clarisonic Deep Pore Cleansing Clay Mask and Gel Cleanser with the deep pore cleansing brush head is everything and more.

Step one: cleanse your skin using the gel cleanser and Clarisonic

Step two: apply a thin layer of the deep pore cleansing mask and leave on for ten minutes

Step three: wet the brush head and remove the mask using the device

Result? The cleanest, clearest skin you’ll ever have and boy is it immediately noticeable.

Talking more longterm, dark-spot-like scars are basically post-inflammatory pigmentation and aren’t necessarily permanent damage. That being said, the increased melanin (darker pigmented skin cells) to the surface of your skin are seriously sensitive to the sun and can get darker if you’re not using sun-protection.

Before my sunscreen and day cream I apply Lancome’s Dreamtone Serum which really is a dream when it comes to brightening my overall skintone and evening out my patchy colouring after a rough ride. Tried, tested and approved as the best.

At night I use a targeted serum, Vichy’s ProEven Concentrate for Dark Spots. This lightweight product works the overnight shift to help resurface the skin let you wake with brighter skin.

{Hydration and Repair}

To finish it off with added hydration and repairing properties overnight, I use Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil For Face or The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Serum-in Oil. Oils increase the blood circulation to the skin offer more of those fancy white blood cells to help with the healing process of the dead skin cells. It contains ten different types of oils including Argan oil for repairing and hydrating properties, Vitamin E oil for scar healing and Vitamin C oil for brightening.

I had three (to be precise) scars on my left cheek and after a month of trying this set up they’re almost gone.

Don’t forget though…if you don’t wear SPF everyday then you may as well throw these efforts away!
