As an aesthetician, I am always trying and learning about new (at least to me) products. There are so many out there, it's hard to know where to start; so I love when I get the opportunity to share some with you.
Today's product is called Clearista. This retexturing gel has a patented formula that helps to accelerate the skin's natural exfoliation process. It is specifically designed to help those with Keratosis Pilaris. KP is a very common skin condition that results from a build up of keratin that clogs the hair follicles and results in acne like bumps. It's generally found on the arms, thighs, cheeks, and buttocks. They're painless but often go untreated, which is a shame, because treatment is simple- exfoliation.
The ingredients in the gel help to loosen the skin’s keratin bonds to give you access to the skin underneath. So even if you don’t have KP, it helps to enhance the effectiveness of any other skincare products you use. Think of the gel like a booster rather than just an exfoliant. I've been using it as an exfoliant for my facial routine and love it. I've noticed a very positive difference and have had noticeable changes, overnight.
For your face: cleanse normally // put the gel on for 30-60s // then, using a circular motion, spread it for about 30+s // rinse the jojoba beads with warm water and follow with your normal skincare routine
For the body, follow those same steps or avoid the initial cleanse and skip right to the Clearista application.
