From face serums to scrubs, there’s quite a bit to cover when it comes to skin care—and that’s just products! If you’re still learning about the many ways to sport a beautiful complexion, you may have started to dive into researching what skin care tools you should add to your routine. One popular tool you’ve likely come across? A face brush! While using a spin brush for your face isn’t a new phenomenon in the beauty world, it may be something you’ve yet to consider. So, we’ve decided to answer all your questions—including if using a face cleanser brush in your skin care routine is the right move for you. Happy cleansing!
Before we talk about if you should use a face scrub brush, let’s talk a bit about what this tool is. Typically, these brushes have round heads with soft bristles that are used to give you a deeper clean, since the bristles help to exfoliate your skin while gently cleansing. There are different face exfoliator brush heads that can be attached, depending on the level of exfoliation you’d like, your skin’s sensitivity, and your skin type.
As we mentioned, a face cleanser brush can help give you a deeper, more thorough clean. That said, they’re not for everyone. Since this is a method of exfoliation, those with sensitive skin may find a face scrub brush to be irritating. If you have normal skin, you can likely use one a few times per week. Just as with regular exfoliation, you’ll want to adjust the frequency based on how your skin reacts.
How do you use a face brush, you ask? Follow the steps below to put this handy tool to work.
To get the most out of your face scrub brush, start with a clean, bare face that’s free of makeup. Saturate a cotton pad with micellar water, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types, and gently wipe it over your face to remove any makeup.
Hold the head of your face brush under the faucet and wet the bristles with lukewarm water. Then, squeeze your cleanser of choice onto the bristles. Try using the L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean All Skin Types Foaming Gel Cleanser.
Work your face cleanser brush over your face in circular motions. Some face brushes are motorized, so you won’t have to worry about doing these circular motions yourself! There’s no need to do this for a long period of time—cleansing your entire face should only take around one minute.
Put your face spin brush aside. Then, just as you normally would, rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft washcloth. Follow up with the rest of your skin care routine!
With any skin care tool, it’s important to thoroughly clean it after each use to avoid spreading bacteria, oils, and impurities that could result in breakouts. Here’s how to clean a face brush.
First, hold the brush under lukewarm water to remove any initial residue. Run your fingers through the bristles to ensure they’re thoroughly rinsed.
To get rid of any makeup or cleanser residue, use a mild soap or baby shampoo to wash your face brush. Make sure to get in-between the bristles!
Pat your face cleanser brush dry with a towel, then allow it to air dry. Not too bad, right?
While this step won’t follow immediately after drying your brush off, it is important. If your face cleansing brush has a removable brush head, you shouldn’t use the same one forever. After a few months, it’s typically recommended that you get a new one.
Now that you know how to use and take care of a face cleanser brush, why not learn how to use another popular skin care tool? Check out our article, How to Use an Epilator, for your next lesson.
