If you care about your skin, you’d be wise to invest in an exfoliating face brush. An electric face brush, to be exact. The reason is simple: The best exfoliating brushes do wonders for your complexion. A great scrub brush, which has a round brush head and sort of looks like a mini orbital sander for your face, is easy to use (just add whatever exfoliating scrub you like to the top) and leaves your face feeling like it’s been buffed to a high shine. Sounds weird, but it’s pretty nice.
Still not convinced? Your body is covered in trillions of skin cells. When those skin cells die, they need to be removed from the face or else they’ll block pores, causing irritation, in-grown hairs, and pimples. It’s important to scrub at all ages, but a bi-weekly exfoliating routine becomes critical as you age. According to dermatologist Dr. Caroline Chang, when we’re younger, our body naturally exfoliates; over time those dead skin cells just don’t slough off as easily. Translation: If you want to look your best, you better get familiar with exfoliation.
“Shaving can definitely irritate the skin,” says Dr. Chang. “Using a gentle exfoliator like this one in the general ‘beard area’ is a good idea to prevent blocked pores, and make your skin look better.”
Foreo's latest update to its Luna line features a longer-lasting battery, a broader cleaning surface, and longer touchpoints for a better clean. But it still features the same one-minute mode for clearer, fresher skin with minimal effort. Think of it as a Sonicare for your face.
This compact facial toning device delivers precision microcurrent and T-Sonic pulsations to help get rid of those annoying initial signs of aging. It stimulates your face, with a range of three different intensities, to tone your skin. Your mug looks younger and fresher. And this thing works in minutes.
This all-in-one device delivers more than 7,000 vibrations per minute to cleanse, tone, and lift the skin. You never need to replace the brush head, because it's made of silicone, and it has four customizable modes for all major skin types. Instead of exfoliating per se, it uses vibrations to break down oil and dirt.
Not only does this facial device look more like something you'd find at the Apple store as opposed to your local drugstore. But it's beloved by industry insiders for a reason: It works. You rub it in circles over your face and it uses nanocurrency (electricity) to reduce acne, smooth the eye area, and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, both of which help your skin look younger and more supple. It syncs with an app to make sure whatever you do is customized to your skin type and needs.
