The Clarisonic Commandments

The Clarisonic Commandments

So by now, everybody should have a Clarisonic. If you don’t you need to get one, like, ASAP. Not only is it a great tool for daily cleaning of the skin. It helps give you a gentle exfoliation as well as a great blow to the skin and helps your skin care penetrate the skin.

Even though the Clarisonic has been around for a while now there are a few rules that I would like to reiterate. Just because if you’re like me you get comfortable and you constantly find yourself saying it’s fine I’ll take care of it later. Which isn’t good when it comes to the tools you use for skin care because if they get too bad you either have to replace them or risk serious infection. So let’s get into the don’ts and do of your Clarisonic.

Always replace your brush head not only when it starts looking dingy you want to replace it at least every 2 months just because it is something that you exfoliate with so it Harbors dead skin cells no matter how well your rinse. You don’t want to put anything in your skin while trying to get it out.

Make sure that you don’t leave your Clarisonic in the shower since after you wash your face it could get water trapped in between the brush head and the base and get mold. So if you do leave it in the shower or you choose to wash your face first and leave it in the shower while you finish up when you’re done from time to time make sure that you remove that brush head so it can air out and you won’t have to worry about mold.

Make sure you keep track of the top the one that comes with the brush head just because and it could just be a me thing but I don’t like my bristles touching too many surfaces just because every surface in your bathroom pretty much has bacteria on it and you don’t want that getting on your brush head the brush head has holes in it so your Clarisonic should still be able to dry out but make sure you keep that fresh head so you don’t have to worry about like anything gross getting on it

Don’t use any exfoliators with the Clarisonic it would be too aggressive on your skin because Sonic already exfoliate your skin and to use another exfoliator on top of that is a bit of an Overkill and it can make your skin Raw which isn’t good also exfoliator is more of a scrub like it has little granules in it they can travel deep inside your Clarisonic and really mess up the function and mess up the gears of it so if you do choose to use an exfoliator make sure that you use it after not even before even if you don’t use your Clarisonic just be very careful

Why I Don’t Kiss

You know that romantic scene in every romantic comedy movie where the two lovers who just recently met kiss passionately before the camera fades out? I was never into that. I never really cared about or gotten the concept of kissing. Most times I kiss just to be polite or if we were together for a long time sure. However recently, I would rather not.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve been single for a while and I haven’t been that in anyone, or if it’s just I think too much.

When I was with, we’ll call him Allen, the other day he wanted to kiss. I just couldn’t do it. Maybe it was because I wasn’t feeling him or possibly I couldn’t help but think where has his mouth been?

That’s my thing I’m literally the definition of an over-thinker. I don’t think omg this is so hot, I think of how you’re kissing, what you’re doing and how you’re doing it, I could go on. So until I find someone who I enjoy kissing I’m just down with it. Except of course with the lips below. 😘
