Is it necessary to use a facial cleansing brush to wash your face?Skin, Hair & Nails Aesthetic Medicine
I've seen many people promoting different brands of facial cleansing brushes that supposedly removes dirt more effectively and improves your skin complexion and pores. Is it necessary to use a facial cleansing brush to wash your face, and will it improve my skin? Or can I just use my hands?
The simple answer is, a lot of it is marketing hype, and if you prefer using your hands to wash your face, that's good enough.
There are going to be some studies (inevitably funded by big brands) that show that it cleanses your face better, but ultimately, there's no study I've come across that proves that it will improve your complexion.
Do note also that these devices can be too harsh for senstive skin - so definitely stay away if you are prone to eczema or redness. It’s even possible to have first-degree burns from overuse or too-aggressive cleansing.
