The Skin Boutique: Clarisonic. If you're not using it, shame on you

The Skin Boutique: Clarisonic. If you're not using it, shame on you: read this post by my friend
Alexis, owner of The Skin Boutique, also here in Tampa.  I love my Clarisonic brush, and I absolutely see and feel a difference in my skin since I've started using it.  As you can see my her, um, no-nonsense title, Alexis is pretty serious about communicating the importance of quality products and proper skin care. :DShe took the time to understand what I will ACTUALLY do, ahem, sleep in my makeup even though she tells me not to, and prescribe a product regimen that I can use to keep my skin looking really fresh and glowing. I am a fan of heavier coverage foundations, usually, but for the first time since my early 20's, I can wear absolutely no foundation and my skin tone looks so even - it's pretty awesome.

If you do this at home, you can do it hours before you plan to wash it - I sleep with it in my hair and wash it out with Loreal Professional Delicate Color Sulfate Free Shampoo the next morning. If you're a no-poo-er, I suggest using the Ouidad Cleansing Oil instead.  You can condition your hair as usual, or, for extra awesomeness, follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse  use up to half acv to half water, or try using 2 parts water to 1 part acv.  Let that site for at least 2 minutes, RINSE WELL.  Be SO careful not to get it in your eyes, it burns like a BITCH. It's not harsh on your hair, though - the acidity of the vinegar is actually very gentle on the cuticle helping to close it down as …
