So I have just purchase another skin care gadget: a facial brush! I have been putting off getting one because I simply didn’t get how it could be beneficial. All I could think was that this is going to scratch my skin and cause all types of abrasions. I have sensitive skin (who doesn’t) and felt this could only do harm. Well I have finally given in and can’t wait to implement this into my regimen. The purpose of this little guy is to:
- Keep the pores clean and unclogged
- Exfoliates the skin, which will help produce more collagen
- Helps with the blood circulation, which can help with things such as skin tone, skin discoloration
As I have mentioned before I have very oily skin and I am willing to try anything to help tone that down. I do have dark spots from various bad habits that I have, and I am working on those.
One of the other reasons I have stayed away from using a cleansing brush is that it just seemed like too much work, and for me it really is. My understanding is that I HAVE to use a foam cleanser, and I don’t currently use one. So now that is another product I have to buy, and I am already a skin care product junkie. You also have to clean it immediately after each use, another chore. Another good tip that was given was to use a moisturizer on your face after using the brush as well, since a lot of the natural oils will be stripped away. I have seen different thoughts or how often to use, some daily others 2x per week. Once I get my complete routine down, my goal is 2x per week. Do you currently use a cleansing brush?
