Next to moisturizing and applying sunscreen, cleansing the skin is one of the most important steps in your skin care routine. But as good as most cleansers are at removing makeup and ridding the skin of pore-clogging dirt, debris and pollution that wreak havoc on your complexion, washing your face with just your cleanser and your fingertips won’t always give you the most effective cleanse. This is why we turn to facial cleansing brushes, sponges and other state-of-the-art tools and devices.
If you’ve never tried these cleanser helpers before and are wondering whether they work, let us be the first one to tell you: They totally do! In fact, on top of providing your skin with a deeper, more effective cleanse, many of these tools and devices also offer other benefits such as removing dead skin cells, accelerating skin cell turnover and stimulating circulation, which make your skin more receptive to your other skin care and anti-aging products.
