Facial Cleansing Brushes: Bad or Boujee

In recent years, skincare has taken a turn for the electrical. Some of us prefer the more traditional route of a washcloth but some of us dread the time is takes to dedicate to a regimen for healthy skin. If you must go out & buy a facial cleansing device, here's what to look for!


Facial cleansing brushes were developed to help wash your face, exfoliate to reveal softer skin and help minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles.

Ava Shamban, a board-certified dermatologist based in Los Angeles, and founder of Ava MD said touchless skin gadgets are beneficial. “Touchless options are a great tool to help keep bacteria transfer from fingers to face, potentially spreading COVID or other conditions that can affect either our health or skin,” she said. “However, these home devices are only as good as the care taken by the operator using them.”

What to Look For:

  • Aerodynamic shape and weight that feels good in your hand

  • Easy to use (and clean) design

  • Preferably, silicone bristles, which are non-porous, as opposed to nylon bristles

  • Multiple settings or areas for different types of skin and skin needs
