Q: Can I use the Clarisonic facial brush heads on other parts of the body besides the face?

A: For targeted cleansing on the body, Clarisonic offers the Clarisonic Body Spot Therapy Brush Head, which is ideal for use all over. However, you can use the normal facial brush heads on the neck, décolleté, shoulders, arms and hands.

Q: My husband has been borrowing my Clarisonic system lately, and we only have one brush head. Is it okay to share?

A: It’s best if you avoid sharing brush heads. Thankfully, the brush heads come in a 2-pack so you can stock up and share the benefits!

Whether your skin care routine has become stagnant or you’re struggling with a specific skin care concern like acne or aging, Clarisonic allows you to build a basic routine that more effectively achieves visible results by improving the quality of your regimen. The Clarisonic skin care system is based on proven clinical results, and after a short time, you’ll observe improved skin tone, smaller pores and skin that’s overall more healthy and radiant.

Clarisonic: Cleansing that’s far more effective

How does it work? The Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System is centered on a handheld electric skin care brush that features a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second. Each brush head has two synergistic brushes: an outer stationary brush and an inner oscillating brush that work together to pry open pores and loosen the dirt and oil trapped inside.

Think this style of cleansing compares to a plain old washcloth? Think again! In less than one minute, the brush’s unique micro-massage action is able to eliminate over six times as much makeup and twice as much dirt and debris from your skin than normal cleansing. And, by better purifying your pores, the cleansing brush better preps your skin to absorb the active ingredients in your skin care regimen for an enhanced, more effective routine.

And, it all starts with a simple electronic skin care brush – from there, you can personalize the regimen by adding the specialized brush heads and cleansers that are right for your skin type and the particular challenges of your skin.

Step 1: Decide on the right device
