Ever since I was in high school I have struggled with acne and even into my adult life I am still struggling…granted not as bad as it was in high school but I do experience break outs every now and then. Now for a long time I have used several treatments and odd remedies to keep my face pimple-free even as far as putting toothpaste on my face to help clear it up (which works really well actually) I am always open to trying different things so when I was given the opportunity to try a new beauty device, the Claro IPL Acne Clearing device that uses light to help clear up acne I jumped on it.
How It Works:
The science behind CLARO can be understood by having an understanding of the pesky pimples causing the problem and where they stem from. Acne on your face is from bacteria and within the bacteria there is a nasty little compound called porphyrin. By stimulating porphyrin through light and heat it creates singlet oxygen that attacks the bacteria causing the acne as well as the blemishes that acne leaves behind.
CLARO make use the same technology used in a Dermatologists office without any of the costs and without having to make an appointment. I love that CLARO is so easy to use and only takes up a little bit of your time and can be incorporated into your current daily beauty regimen. I have been using it for the past week and a half and I must say I see a difference. A blemish on my chin became less noticeable within 24 hours of using the device (pictures to come, 2 yr old water-logged my poor little digital camera).
What I Would Change:
An issue I have with the device is a simple one and that could hopefully be a quick fix by the designer/manufacturer. There is no real way of knowing if you are lining the pimple up on the little window that emits the light. If you decide to buy this device I would definitely recommend a line or an arrow with a ‘Place Pimple Here’ label on it, so you can be sure. In the box you will also get a little pair of tanning goggles to protect your eyes from the light. Just a tip the goggles do not come with a string or an elastic to hold them up, however if you pull them apart slightly and then place it on the bridge of your nose they and let it clamp together they will stay up.
CLARO Acne Clearing Device can be purchased from Best Buy for $194.99.
