Since developing rosacea in my late teens I’ve been very into my skincare and trying to bust spots as they come along. After talking to many doctors and dermatologists and beauticians I’ve found what works for me. One thing that has mixed reviews is a facial brush. These are brushes that are used to exfoliate and remove dirt, oil and dead dry skin.
I’ve found that a lot of people say well it gets rid of your skin. While this is true on some level sometimes the benefits out way the cons. As I have a lot of bacteria build up from my rosacea I have too keep my skin as clean as I can and sometimes my hands and water just aren’t enough. I like to use my facial brush for more of a deep clean. I use the silicone head as it is softer and does a lot less damage. I use this once a day at night after removing make up to get everything of my face so I am fresh and ready for bed. I simply add some product onto the brush, wet my face and quickly whizz round my face. I then rinse, tone and moisture ready for the morning. In the mornings I’ll normally just use a flannel or my hands for my skin care in the morning as this is more gentle on my skin. I use the bristled brush perhaps once a week for a really good scrub but again it’s quite scratch so I try to avoid it as much as I can. There are many different brushes out there so shop around and see what you like, electric or not a lot come with a silicone head which is perfect for the more sensitive skin!
