Many people buy CLn® products as a go-to cleanser for problem skin, and then realize CLn can be used for so much more. Over the years, we have received terrific feedback and tips from users and top dermatologists alike on just what Therapeutic Cleansing with CLn can do. We call these alternative uses or CLn Life Hacks.
CLn Life Hack #1: Shaving and Hair Removal
CLn Shampoo or CLn Gentle Shampoo can be used before shaving or hair removal. Both help reduce the risk of razor burn and ingrown hairs. They are effective on any part of the body.
CLn Life Hack #2: Hand Cleansing on the Go
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone wash his or her hands for at least 30 seconds. They state that hand washing is far more effective than alcohol-based sanitizers.
However, soap in public restrooms can be missing, diluted or of poor quality. It can also contain irritants. According to several Moms devoted to CLn, one of the best hacks is carrying a 3 oz. tube of our BodyWash with them to cleanse their children’s hands in public. Having clinically clean hands is important for those prone to infection, but everyone can benefit from a reliable, dependable cleanser on the go.
CLn Life Hack #3: Pet Wash
One of the most written about #lifehacks is how you can use CLn to help clean and deodorize dogs and cats. Our Gentle Shampoo has proven to be an excellent remedy for pet dander, odor and hair care. Pet owners have also told us that our CLn Shampoo is ideal for resolving issues with hot spots and other skin allergies — even the difficult-to-treat paws. A dermatologist from Bradenton, Florida recommended CLn to her aunt, after strong steroids failed to stop her aunt’s dog’s intense itching. She shared the success of her recommendation with us: “I was heartbroken to see my aunt’s tiny dog suffering from infected, itching skin. I suggested that my aunt buy your CLn Shampoo. She improved remarkably with CLn.”
CLn Life Hack #4: Quick Cleanser for Bug Bites, Cuts and Blemishes
CLn BodyWash is touted as an excellent cleanser for skin prone to infection, dermatitis and acne. However, a little-known benefit of our product is that it can be a great skin cleanser after suffering from a bug bite, cut or scrape. One word of caution—after a “bug bite,” if the skin becomes red, painful and swollen, one has to seek immediate medical attention, even if it is on a weekend. A serious skin infection with MRSA (methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus) may be occurring. Such infections are often mistaken for a bug bite. Early antibiotics and drainage may be necessary.
CLn Life Hack #5: Mani/Pedi Prep
Many of our customers have shared their use of the CLn Hand & Foot Wash before and after visiting a nail salon to minimize the risk of a potential infection. It is also a good idea to avoid shaving legs the day of a pedicure, as tiny abrasions caused by razors can be entry points for bacteria.
CLn Life Hack #6: Diaper Rash
Many moms have written to us to say had they known about CLn while their children were in diapers, they would have been using it in conjunction with other preventive methods like diaper paste. CLn Gentle Shampoo is designed to cleanse skin prone to infection. When used to cleanse the diaper area, it is soothing due to its moisturizing glycerin.
The above life hacks are only a glimpse at what CLn can do. Stay tuned for our next blog post–baby eczema: what it is and what to do about it.
