As exhausting as it can sometimes be, going to bed without washing your face is a big no-no. And this is especially true for those of us who love sporting a full face of makeup. According to Dr. Hadley King, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City, in addition to removing makeup, cleansing your skin helps to remove dead skin cells, dirt, debris, sebum and pollution residue. Truthfully speaking, there’s so much more that sits on our skin than the naked eye can see. That’s where cleansing devices come to the rescue.
Cleansing tools can be more effective than washing with your hands and gentler than using a cloth. Dr. King says, “They can even be a great way to gently exfoliate.” Dr. King adds that since regular cleansing and exfoliating can increase the turnover of skin cells, keeping your complexion as clean and healthy as possible is key to your healthiest skin yet.
Although most cleansing devices are suitable for most skin types, those with sensitive skin should opt for a model with soft bristles and test the device on a small area of skin before using it on your face to ensure there is no irritation or inflammation. As far as how to care for a cleansing device, you want to make sure it’s cleaned properly in between each use and that the massaging head is replaced at least once a month to avoid any bacteria buildup.
Now that you know the nitty-gritty, it’s time to up your cleansing game. Here are the best cleansing tools and brushes to try.
