Cleansing brushes. You’ve probably noticed them online, or popping up on the beauty floor of your favourite department stores. They look like oversized electric toothbrushes with a space-aged edge, but we swear they’re nothing to be scared of.
In fact, a cleansing brush can clean your skin like never before. These beauty gadgets work in tandem with your pre-existing skincare regimen to deliver a cleanse far deeper than you could accomplish with your fingers, or a face washer. In just 30 seconds, twice a day, they can banish pollution, unwanted oils and remanent product – leaving your skin primed to absorb serums, moisturisers and anything else you might want to apply. Also – they’re dead easy to use, as our editor Alyx will demonstrate in this quick “How to use a cleansing brush” video.
