Get Glowing Skin For Summer with The Ultra Clear Facial Cleansing System

After a recent facial my Esthetician suggested to really improve my skin I should look into getting a facial brush. With my combination sensitive skin my skin is prone to breakouts and the texture is just not as smooth as I want it to be. I had the chance to check out the Ultra Clear Facial Cleansing System and I am really impressed with the results.

So why a facial brush? One of the big benefit’s a facial brush is the ability to really deep clean and remove dead skin cells, dirt and unclog pores leaving skin looking younger, healthier and with less blemishes. Now you might worry it will be too harsh on your skin, but powered facial brushes clean gently and thoroughly without damaging your skin.

Now there are a lot of cleansing brushes on the market, I have tried some of the low end ones and they didn’t do much to clean my skin. While the high end brushes work great the price makes them a little harder to justify for most shoppers. The Ultra Clear is the best of both worlds, a really high end facial brush that has an affordable price point of $86.

The Ultra Clear comes with two brush heads, normal and sensitive. I would classify myself in the sensitive skin category and was able to use both heads and get a nice deep clean without any irritation. The brush has 1800 micro vibrations per second and has two speeds low for cleansing and high for exfoliation.  I like that it is waterproof so I can use it in the shower or at the sink.

To use my brush I remove my eye makeup then wet my skin. I apply my gel facial cleanser to my face then wet the brush and get to work. I start at my cheekbone and work in a circular motion up and around the other side of my face. Once I am done brushing I just rinse my face and brush and I’m done. I like the rechargeable base its not to big and not only holds my brush but keeps it charged and ready to go.

Even after the first use my skin felt much cleaner and the longer I use it I have noticed a significant reduction in breakouts. When I do have a blemish the healing time seems much faster when I am using my Ultra Clear. I love using it before bed and getting all the grime, and junk off my face it helps get my skin ready for my nightly serum and moisturizer making sure I get the most out of my skincare products.

If you are looking to get glowing beautiful skin and get more out of your skincare products check out the Ultra Clear Facial Cleansing System, it really does make a difference.

Ultra Clear by Truth In Aging is a facial cleansing system that is uniquely powerful and very gentle. Because it has 1800 micro vibrations per second it is extremely effective whilst being kind to sensitive and/or mature skin. Without scrubbing or rubbing, the rapidly rotating brush heads refine pores, clarify the complexion and stimulate healthy skin. Ultra Clear is the foundation of beautiful skin.

• Two interchangable brush heads – normal & sensitive
• Charging base
• Power cord with adaptor for the US (non-US customers will need a local adaptor)

For dry brushing: All makeup must be removed first. Gently move the brush in circular motions around the cheeks (10 seconds), nose and chin (20 seconds), and forehead (10 seconds).

For wet brushing: Remove eye makeup by hand first. Wet the skin and brush head with warm water. Apply your favorite facial cleanser. Gently move the brush in circular motions across the cheeks (10 seconds), nose and chin (20 seconds), and forehead (10 seconds).

Introducing Photo Plasma, The Skin Shield, by Perricone MD!

What I should do for this post is take a picture of the sun spots on my face – and use that as what NOT to do with your sun protection. I have the worst sun spots that come out every year around this time. I think years of sun – and sunbathing have made my skin go cray cray! What I SHOULD have been using all along is a product like this. Something that makes my skin feel amazing PLUS protects from EVERYTHING. What I’ve always hated about sunscreens, etc., is I feel you don’t get good products that go hand in hand with protection. My skin is so sensitive, I have to be careful about which protective products I use, because I could end up doing more harm than good!

With a product like this – from a brand I know and trust – I can protect my skin, all the while nourishing it.

Tackling the 10 signs of environmental stress (sun exposure, dehydration, harsh wind, smoke, pollution, etc.) this lightweight formula creates an invisible barrier to guard against natural aggressors and age-accelerating sun damage.

Astaxanthin, the superfood found in red algae, steals the spotlight among the cast of powerful anti-aging ingredients. Known for its natural anti-radiation benefits, astaxanthin has photo-protective benefits to further protect skin from the elements. In addition to acting as a natural anti-inflammatory (the backbone of Dr. Perricone’s philosophy on healthy aging) astaxanthin naturally delivers the pretty pink sorbet hue to brighten up your medicine cabinet amongst a sea of white skincare saviors.

Luxurious in texture and oil-free, Photo Plasma leaves skin with a velvet soft, dewy finish and acts as a natural primer to keep makeup in place. No tackiness like traditional sunscreen – skin is glowing and radiant without logging hours poolside. Photo Plasma nourishes all skin types and provides non-chemical, broad spectrum SPF30 protection.

If you look at all this product does, you’ll run out and buy it yourself! It moisturizes, protects, primes, and softens your skin! SOLD!

Available for $69 at Sephora and www.perriconemd.com
