Is shiny oily skin on your nose and forehead destroying your Instagram feed? Anyone who deals with oily skin regularly will tell you that it only gets worse in the summer. That’s because the heat has a stimulating effect on the glands. All that extra oil is meant to act as a barrier to protect the skin, but this usually backfires as people rub and scrub to prevent shine and breakouts. Luckily, there are solutions—and one of the best is the Clarisonic device for cleansing, which is now available at Dr. Roz Kamani’s skincare clinic in Vancouver.
Transform Skin in Just 60 Seconds a Day
“The Clarisonic was originally developed for skincare professionals to use during treatment,” explains Dr. Kamani. “And it quickly became the #1 cleansing brush recommended by leading dermatologists, aestheticians and spa professionals.”
Rather than rotating or scrubbing, the device relies on sonic technology, oscillating at a frequency that produces over 300 movements per second. The resulting flexing action created between the outer and inner brushes work to loosen dirt and oil, removing deep-seated impurities from pores and priming skin to better absorb topical treatments. In fact, clinical results have shown increased product absorption and six times better removal of makeup, dirt, and oil than washing with hands alone.
- Smoother, softer, healthier-looking skin
- Minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles
- Cleanses so thoroughly, skin care products absorb better
- Gentle enough to use twice daily on all skin types
“Cleansing the skin without causing damage is key to maintaining a beautiful, evenly toned, and healthy complexion,” says Dr. Kamani. “The Clarisonic Method relies on technology that goes deep to beautifully transform the skin’s texture, reducing the appearance of pore size, fine lines, and wrinkles.”
Another quick trick recommended by Dr. Kamani to keep oil in check is cooling the face. Wash with lukewarm water and keep your favourite skincare products in the fridge. By contracting pores, less oil will be released. In addition, constricted capillaries will mean there’s less redness and irritation.
For clients with serious skin irritation and breakouts, a free skincare consultation with Dr. Kamani is recommended. Book your appointment today.
