Short on Time? Try This Time-Saving Skin Tip

Renee Rouleau's mint buffing beads

Exfoliating the skin regularly by using a gentle facial scrub is an essential part of a proper skin care routine but there are times—when you don’t have the time!

Skin Tip: Instead of using your facial scrub at the sink, keep it in the shower and use it as your morning cleanser 2-3 times a week. Most facial scrubs contain cleansing ingredients in them, so there is no reason why it act as a cleanser and scrub-in one.

We LOVE our Mint Buffing Beads and Dual Enzyme Softening Peel.

Do facial scrubs irritate your skin? It could be that you’re not using the right one for your skin type. Learn why jojoba beads are an awesome (and gentle) way to exfoliate the skin.

  1. It is not uncommon for the Clarisonic brush to cause breakout activity. Using it twice a day (which you read in my review) is way too aggressive, even though the company suggests it. We suggest using it no more than 2-3 times a week, but for some, it’s just not a fit for their skin.

  2. Just read your comment on the clarisonic. I also purchased a Mia and before had very sensitive and clear skin except for discolorations. I am now having breakout that i have never had before. Why does this happen! I emailed the Clarisonic people and they say that the dirt and oils come to the surface after you stimulate the skin causing these breakouts. I have been using it twice daily. What to do? I do like the way my face looked and felt before I began to breakout.
    What to do?????
