I was obsessed with makeup from a very young age. By the time I was five I was giving makeovers to the neighborhood kids. I practiced nail art on myself as a tween before nail art was even a trend and I pulled all nighters in junior high teaching myself how to braid. It wasn’t until my 20’s that I paid any attention to my daily skin care regimen. I learned that if I took care of my skin I needed less makeup and it actually looked better! My skin has gone through all kinds of changes over the last several years and I swear by these amazing products.

Clarisonic Mia 2 of 7
When my skin needs a pick me up my Clarisonic is always to the rescue. The brush exfoliates, smooths out fine lines and cleanses deep into your pores. The price point is a little intimidating, but I have had mine for over 6 years and it is still going strong. A must have product and worth every penny.
Tip: You don't want to over exfoliate the skin, so use your Clarisonic no more than 3-4 times a week.
